Together sponsors new Channel 4 property TV series

Together has been announced as the partner of a new Channel 4 national property TV series.

The specialist lender has provided a commercial loan for contestants of The Great House Giveaway show to buy properties at auctions around the UK.

The series — presented by property expert Simon O’Brien (pictured above) — will bring together teams of two people who have never met and never owned their own homes before.

They will be given a set budget and six months to refurbish their property before selling it — keeping any money they make. 

As part of the sponsorship deal, Together was given exclusive access to film behind-the-scenes footage, which will appear on its website and social media channels after the series starts next month.

Chris Baguley, commercial managing director at Together, said: “This is a fantastic new format and a series that we’re proud to sponsor. 

“As one of the leading players in auction finance, and our long-standing record in supporting the market, it was the obvious fit for our brand.”

Sioned Wyn, director at production company Chwarel, added: “The Great House Giveaway will be the only national TV property format in which you don’t have to own a house or have the money to buy a house in order to get on the programme. 

“…We’ve really enjoyed working with all the contestants, Channel 4, and our sponsor Together, to create this kind of aspirational television.”
