SORT Your Life Out presenter Stacey Solomon was left feeling “awful” when a guest burst into tears just minutes into cleaning out their clutter.
Series 3 of the BBC reality show began last night with the “fullest warehouse” Stacey, 33, has ever seen.
On Thursday night’s episode of Sort Your Life Out, Stacey and her team headed to the home of Tom and Chloe Watling, which was overflowing with baking equipment, sweets, books and kids’ toys.
The series helps families organise everything they own, having a massive clear out in the process, to ultimately give them a home that they can “enjoy and be proud of” in less than seven days.
After the Sort Your Life Out team brought all of Tom, Chloe and their daughter’s Arya and Nerea’s belongings, the family of four were excited to get stuck into the sorting.
The family’s 243 boxes filled the 15,000 square foot warehouse.

Shocked at the sight of it, Chloe gasped.
“No! No way! I did not expect it to be this much!” she said, to which Stacey admitted: “This has got to be one of the fullest warehouses I have ever seen.”
Still stunned, Chloe added: “I cannot believe this all fits in our house!”
Knowing that Chloe was overly attached to many possessions as “a way to hold on to the past,” Stacey thought the book section would be an easy place for the family to start.

However, just minutes into sorting, Chloe burst into tears after seeing a book from her childhood.
Tom had found a French version of The Little Prince, which Chloe’s grandparents used to read to her, and it had a special message in the front.
Chloe immediately welled up at the sight of it.
She admitted to Stacey: “My grandparents used to live in France. My grandpa has passed away now, but I didn’t think that would get to me.”
Stacey was very understanding of the special book, offering Chloe a hug and telling her they should put that special item in the memory box.
“Honestly, I didn’t think books would be this intense,” Stacey joked afterward, trying to lighten the mood.
Away from the family and speaking to the camera, Stacey added: “We have never had tears in the first 10 minutes… I feel awful!”
After a week of cleaning, organising, and ruthless sorting, Stacey and her team helped Chloe and Tom totally transform their home, making it a lovely liveable space, not somewhere they were embarrassed of.
Sort Your Life Out airs Thursday from 8pm on BBC One.
