Finding Alice viewers baffled by ‘smart house’ with no bannisters and mock drama as ‘worst Grand Designs episode ever’

FINDING Alice viewers have been left baffled by the ‘smart house’ with no bannisters and mock the drama as the ‘worst Grand Designs episode ever’.

The ITV drama started on Sunday and follows the titular Alice (Keeley Hawes) as she struggles to come to deal with the sudden death of her beloved husband, Harry.

Before his death, Harry had designed their dream home, and proudly showed it off to his wife and their daughter Charlotte before Alice found him dead at the bottom of the stairs on their first night.

Having only spent a few hours in her new 'smart house', Alice had no idea how to get the curtains to open, where the fridge was or how to find anything.

Viewers couldn't help but mock the high-tech house, which also features a floating staircase with no bannister attached.

Taking to Twitter, one viewer wrote: "That house is just so dreary and those stairs with no bannister. An accident just waiting to happen."

Another tweeted: "No bannister – building control would never had signed that off !#FindingAlice."

A third joked: "F***ing Hell ! Kevin McCloud this has to be the worst episode of #GrandDesigns ever."

Meanwhile a fourth added: "#FindingAlice is the strangest episode of Grand Designs that I’ve ever seen."

As she tries to cope with what's happened, Alice struggles with overwhelming feelings of loss, abandonment and disorientation.

Making matters worse, as she continues to settle into her new home, Alice uncovers an unsettling secret Harry had desperately tried to hide.

His dark trail of debt, suspicion and criminality leaves her blindsided.

Finding Alice continues on Sunday, January 24 at 9pm on ITV.
