Through the Keyhole has enjoyed a revamp this year since its heyday in the 1990s. The popular panel show is now fronted by comedian Keith Lemon, and yesterday saw the funny man exploring the home of Scott Mills. The programme, which aired on ITV last night, saw celebrities guessing who lived in which home. The panel was made up of comedian Rob Beckett, presenter Janet Street-Porter and newsreader Krishnan Guru-Murphy. Scott Mill’s celebrity pad in North London was opened to the public in yesterday’s episode – so what’s it like?
The semi-detached house sits on the corner of the road and opens into a hallway with a staircase ahead, which, Lemon notes, is laid with a red carpet.
Particularly envy-inducing is Mills’ walk-in wardrobe. It features a large mirror and a plush red velvet chair.
Row and rows of shoes are lined up along the shelves – from formal black shoes to casual trainers – while his many clothes are hung up alongside.
Downstairs is a large open-plan kitchen, dining and living area. The table, set for four, seems to be of black wood with matching black chairs and stands over a black and white geometric rug. The area also boasts a large radio system.
Behind the dining area is an enormous corner sofa – complete with patterned throw cushions – and a coffee table with a bay window at the end of the room.
There appear to be two televisions fastened onto the grey wall, as well as a mirror.
A kitchen island features in the kitchen area of the room and benefits from the light streaming into through the glass doors which lead onto a patio.
An unusual feature seems to be a giant wine glass which, Lemon muses, suggests Mills is “a lot of fun.”
Another purple-painted room boasts sofas and a large projector screen, seemingly for movie nights as the room also comes with a popcorn machine.
One bathroom shown to viewers is vast and features a large free-standing white bathtub and his n’ her sinks.
Scott Mill’s rear garden is split into two levels, with sofas, a table and a barbecue in the lower area, while a hammock and cool box on wheels can be found in the higher one.
The radio presenter’s master bedroom features a large ornate mirror on the wall and a large bed with a leather headboard and base.
A wardrobe to the side is packed with clothes and even has post-its notes identifying the items on the shelves.
On previous episodes of Through the Keyhole, Keith Lemon has visited the houses of other celebrities such as actress Melissa Joan Hart and Olympian Rebecca Adlington.
Adlington, a now-retired Olympics swimmer, occupies a semi-detached family home, which is surrounded by foliage.
In one room – also filled with books and toys for her daughter – the sportswoman keeps home gym equipment.
