Remember waking up with the Big Breakfast in the ’90s?
If the answer’s yes and you’re in the market for a new pad, and have a few million pounds to spare, this could be the house for you.
The famous lock-keepers cottages home, where the Channel 4 show was based, is up for sale – and fans can have a nose on Rightmove to see what it looks like now.
An early morning home to presenters over the years including Chris Evans, Gaby Roslin, Mark Little, Zoe Ball, Johnny Vaughan and Denise van Outen, the house at Old Ford Lock, in Dace Road, east London, was renovated after the show finished.
The Big Breakfast launched in 1992 as a comedy alternative to more serious breakfast news shows, with celebrity interviews “On The Bed”, puppets Zig and Zag, interaction between the cast and crew, and light features including Telly Rellies, One Lump Or Two and Egg On Your Face.
It continued with various presenters for 10 years, before being axed in 2002.
Famous moments included Paula Yates flirting with Michael Hutchence in an interview, before the pair’s relationship.
On Rightmove, BlakeStanley estate agents has listed the property as a 4,600sqft three-floor country house in London, with six bedrooms and set within half an acre of land – with an asking price of £5.75 million.
For the show, the building had been converted from three cottages into one building.
It is currently split into two, according to the property site, with one unit of 3,000sqft and one of 1,500sqft, “but with the inter-connecting doors still preserved”.
There is also an outdoor swimming pool.
Earlier in 2020, Channel 4 bosses announced The Big Breakfast will return for a one-off revival hosted by comedian Mo Gilligan, due to air next year.
