Sandi Toksvig teases “breathtaking” designs on The Great Big Tiny Design Challenge

Sandi Toksvig spoke about the miniatures made by Great Big Tiny Design Challenge contestants, teasing the “breathtaking” designs that are featured on the show.

The eight-part More4 series sees designers compete to create tiny furniture for dolls houses, with Toksvig hosting the show and interior design guru Laura Jackson judging alongside miniature sculptor Willard Wigan MBE.

When asked if the show would have broad appeal despite being a niche industry, Toksvig told and other outlets, “I think it is the scale that will make people can’t believe it.

“I mean, when you see a miniature bathtub one twelfth the size of an actual bathtub with running water, you see a mutilate that can actually mutilate clothes, it’s breathtaking. A part of the scale was amazing what they managed to do.”

She added: “I’ve been to real stately homes and looked at what it should have looked like if it was art deco or regency or whatever, and it’s amazing how well they look. are all close.”

The series will also see former Bake Off host Toksvig examine the inspiration behind the contestants’ builds, taking viewers on journeys through real-life stately homes across the UK.

The Great Big Tiny Design Challenge with Sandi Toksvig will air later this month on More4. If you’re looking for more to watch, check out our TV guide.
