An Ipswich family will be appearing on Channel 4's Love it or List It show when it airs next week as part of Black to Front, a day of TV fronted by Black talent.

The couple have lived in Ipswich for the past eight years with their two children, Naomi and Tyrell, and Norbert's mum, Lucia. 

They bought the house initially as they believed it had huge potential and have already renovated the garage into a bedroom for Mr Nyandebvu's mum. 

Mr Nyandebvu loves the house and thinks it can become their dream home with a few changes. However, Mrs Nyandebvu is convinced they have outgrown the property and longs for a detached house in a village location with an open-plan kitchen and more importantly, a second bathroom.
