Be sure to tune in to The Big DIY Challenge, Thursday 6th May, 8.30pm on RTÉ one. Hosted by PJ Gallagher, the show sees 52 DIY enthusiasts compete to win a grand prize of €10,000. From skate parks to chicken coops, they’ll have just 10 days to complete their projects. Promising plenty of thrills, spills and electric drills. Not forgetting our weekly prize draw for you at home, keep scrolling to enter.

Meet the judges

The winners will be chosen by the show’s expert judges. One of which is our very own Jimmy Englezos. Jimmy oversees the product development here at Ronseal, so knows his way around a paintbrush. He’ll be there to offer his take on how the contestants get on, ultimately choosing the winners alongside fellow judge Jennifer Byrne, a TU Dublin Lecturer in Construction.

Jimmy Englezos

“That’s the beauty of DIY isn’t it? Trying something you haven’t done before, then taking real satisfaction in a job well done. People can be quite hard on themselves but at the end of the day, we aren’t qualified tradesmen, we’re just people trying to do our best! Failing, getting it wrong, is all part of it – you always learn something.” 

Jennifer Byrne

“It’s amazing to be back on The Big DIY Challenge and I’m really looking forward to seeing what DIY projects people come up with this time around. The standard and imagination last year was incredible and I expect this year’s projects to be even better!” 

As well as choosing the overall winner, Jimmy and Jenny will also be awarding winners for four other categories including Best Outdoor Project and Best Upcycling Project.
