Britain's Most Expensive Home

TX Time: 20h00

Britain's Most Expensive Home

Documentary following billionaire John Caudwell as his £65-million refurbishment in the heart of Mayfair enters its last crucial stages.

The mega-mansion has eight floors, 15 bedrooms, a 120-capacity ballroom, a Thai-themed dining room with a river running through it and an indoor swimming pool with a volcanic lava installation, to name just a few of the home's extravagant features.

Included in the rebuild is an automated car stacker, a dining room with a river of coy carp fish, a 40-foot swimming pool with lava effect wall and the biggest private ballroom after Buckingham Palace.

To bring this fantasy home to life takes real technical and organisational smarts, yet one of the biggest challenges is the client himself – the billionaire is a self-confessed micro manager and an exacting boss.

Helen (Tierney) begins the season involved in an intoxicating new affair with a charismatic movie star (guest star Claes Bang), who offers to give her everything she's been missing.

Noah (West) meanwhile has to swallow his pride and his jealousy and step in to take care of his family in her absence.

But just when things seem to have stabilised, a chance encounter with someone from the distant past sets in a motion a sequence of events that brings them both to their knees.

Paquin stars as Alison and Cole's now adult daughter Joanie Lockhart, who returns some years in the future to piece together the truth about what happened to her mother, bringing the whole story full circle.

In addition to West, Tierney and Paquin, Season 5 series regulars include Julia Goldani Telles and Jadon Sand as Noah and Helen's children, Whitney and Trevor Solloway; and Lathan, as Janelle, Noah's girlfriend and the principal at the school where he teaches.
