GEORGE Clarke’s Flipping Fast viewers have slammed the “ridiculous” property makeovers on the show.
The new Channel 4 programme follows six teams of would-be property developers as they compete to see who can make the biggest profit in a year.

Each team is given a £100,000 investment and risk being disqualified if they spend even a penny over the budget.
Taking part are Gordon, a 55-year-old HGV driver, and Pamela, a 59-year-old care assistant – a couple from Norfolk who have never owned their own home.
The first episode saw them purchase a property they hadn’t viewed in Stockton-on-Tees for £52,500.
After renovation, the couple sold the house for £70,250 and made a profit of £1,280.
In the fourth episode, which aired last Friday, Gordon and Pamela bought their second property for £92,250.
It was a three-bedroom semi-detached house in Wycombe, the largest property in the competition so far.
He admired their positivity, resilience, and hard work – but worried about whether they could pull off the second property.
Despite his admiration, those watching at home were unable to say the same thing about the show itself.
Taking to Twitter, one person penned: “Something hasn’t quite clicked with Flipping Fast. They’ve only done up a couple of houses.
“It needs to be filmed over a longer period of time so there’s more jeopardy – and interest for the audience.”
Echoing their negativity, someone else said: “What’s the point of these so-called property experts when all they do is state the bleeding obvious?”
While a third remarked: “I’ve found a property programme to hate more than How to Live Mortgage Free. George Clarke’s Flipping Fast.”
George Clarke’s Flipping Fast is available to watch on All 4.
