THIS Is My House viewers have done a dramatic U-turn after being won over by the show’s second episode.
Last week, telly fans branded the new BBC1 programme – hosted by Stacey Dooley – “the worst TV they’d seen in ages”.
But after giving it another shot, Wednesday night’s programme managed to persuade viewers into changing their opinion.
After the episode aired, one fan tweeted: “I was sceptical about #thisismyhouse last week but got well into it tonight.”
Another admitted: “Embarrassed to admit I’m fully invested in #thisismyhouse.”
A third even wrote: “I really love this show, an amazing concept and hope they do another series.”
A fourth also said: “It’s crazy but the best show on TV at the moment. Deserves a Saturday night slot.”
This Is My House sees four people attempt to convince a celebrity panel that they are the real homeowner of a property in order to win £1,000.
The second episode saw four men posing as Michael Paris, who lives in a 16th Century, eight-bedroomed house in Hichin, Herts.
Documentary-maker Stacey, 34, grilled each of the blokes and even the Michael Paris’ real wife in an attempt to unveil the genuine one.
This week, the celebrity panel – made up of Emily Atack, Judi Love, Jamali Maddix and Bill Bailey – were also joined by Judge Robert Rinder.
Together, they had to try and correctly guess whether Michael 1, Michael 2, Michael 3 or Michael 4 was dad-of-four Michael Paris.
Last week, fans branded the first episode “bonkers”, with one tweeting: “This is my house has got to be the biggest pile of c**p to ever be commissioned for TV.”
Another blasted: “This Is My House is the most pointless show of the moment. Utter rubbish. I can’t believe this is what I pay my TV license for.”
But it appears the four Michaels successfully won critics round.

Once the second episode had aired, panelist Emily Atack tweeted: “Admit it….. YOU LOVE IT!!! #thisismyhouse.”
Replying, one fan told the star: “Not gonna lie at first I thought it was a bit insane … but 10 minutes in and we were all shouting at the telly! Definitely a new take on reality TV – great stuff!”
Another replied: “Really surprised how addictive it is. Great fun.”
