Broadcaster and journalist Janet Street-Porter comes under the spotlight as the series in which famous faces revisit their former homes continues. In 1997, Janet and an architect friend from college days found the perfect corner plot in Clerkenwell to build her dream representation of a medieval castle. The design was highly controversial with its blue roof and odd-shaped windows. When her castle was dwarfed by new neighbouring buildings, Janet moved around the corner to a former warehouse that was being used as an artist’s studio. She stayed there for 15 years, until the five-floor trek from the kitchen to the basement drove her mad.
