Have you got Britains worst kitchen?

Winner: Jeanette Angel

It’s official! The kitchen that won Jeanette Angel from Colchester the top prize in our Britain’s Worst Kitchen competition is no more!

Voted the worst in the country by nearly 3000 people, Jeanette’s wreck of a room has been transformed into an oasis of cool olive by Benchmarx designers, Annette Murray and Russell Saunders, and MyBuilder kitchen fitter Matthew Woodgate.

Jeanette beat over a hundred other entries submitted nationwide to win the makeover. She entered the competition because using the kitchen as it stood was a nightmare. Her son, Aiden, is autistic and very sensitive to smell, touch, taste and sound so the chaos and mess caused him to get very anxious and difficult.

A big thank you goes to our renovation partner Benchmarx Kitchens & Joinery in Chelmsford for supplying the kitchen and appliances and Travis Perkins in Colchester for donating plastering materials.

Watch the video above to see the full transformation story or take a look at the gallery below.

A note from Jeanette

I feel humbled at the amount of votes that we got. Over 2900 people actually sat there and thought..."We want them to win". I still can't believe that many people did. Winning this competition brings us some normality in what can be a topsy-turvy life sometimes. Thank you to everyone who has made this possible for us.

Runner up: Paul Currie

Paul Currie’s story in the MyBuilder Britain's Worst Kitchen competition would tug at anyone’s heart strings. He spoke about his struggle with depression and raising a daughter under severe financial hardship. The team at MyBuilder couldn’t see Paul go away with nothing so immediately set about trying to source a runner-up prize.

With the generosity and help of kitchen maker and fitter Blackcat Bespoke Woodwork and Property Maintenance, builders merchant Travis Perkins, appliance supplier The Cooperative Electrical Shop & Frank Dineley of Merseyside Carpets, we were able to provide him with a full kitchen makeover.

Paul is over the moon with it all, as you can see in his Facebook post about his story. Check out his blog too in which he talks about his fight with depression - and hear how winning this kitchen makeover has helped him so far, in the video above.

A note from Paul

Wow! I am almost lost for words which isn't a very good thing for an ex-journalist...perhaps that's why the 'ex' is so important in that statement!I don't know who to thank first!

Thank you Ged Parsley for volunteering to do the plasterwork for me and to Gavin Ledder for providing the materials.

Thank you to Justin Whittam for creating the actual kitchen for me...your kindness is just amazing – worth all the cups of tea. It was a good thing you drink it black because I had no fridge then!

Thank you Rob for sorting out the appliances for me - you don't know what a difference they will make to our lives. And thanks to Frank for giving us something other than a cracked concrete floor to finally walk on! And I think I also need to thank Smileworks the dentist who has kindly offered to provide me with a sink unit! I feel like my life is starting all over again!
