Next, the teams head for the Lego Masters House of Fun, where they must create a playable, life-size arcade game. It needs to not only look great, but must also function just like the real thing. Presenter Melvin Odoom and judges Matthew Ashton and Fran Scott will be testing each game for actual playability.

In leafy Berkshire, there’s a perfectly crafted timber box, with sleek concrete floors and giant six-metre windows. In Belfast, there is a small but perfectly formed house with black larch cladding. In Surrey, a completely revamped 1930s house with a pale brick and glass modernist extension blends beautifully into its setting. And finally, an experimental house in London makes the materials it’s built from part of the design. Kevin then reveals which of these properties has made it onto the shortlist before exclusively announcing the overall winner of House of the Year.
