In a completely original new show, UK TV personality Anthea Turner - Britain's answer to Martha Stewart - mentors two hopeless contestants, who compete for the title of "The Perfect Housewife."

Anthea Turner is the perfect housewife and the ultimate domestic goddess and she is setting out to try and re-educate the nation's self-confessed incompetent homemakers in a new series, "Perfect Housewives", produced for BBC 3 by RDF Media, and screened on "mbc4" on Thursday and Friday, at 07:00 GMT (10:00 KSA).

Each week Anthea invites two contestants to her stunning English countryside estate - where every towel is artfully folded, every shoebox clearly labeled, to learn the skills they need to become domestic gods and goddesses.

Anthea's training includes, lessons in how to get rid of carpet indentations (ice cubes), deodorize your sneakers (tea leaves), host the perfect event, plus the many uses of wicker baskets.

The contestants return home with Anthea's helpful hints and use these tools to turn their dungeons of dirt to palaces of perfection.

At the end of the show, not only will their homes be scrutinized by Anthea and her white glove test, but each contestant must host an event. Whether they choose a cocktail, dinner or children's party, the pressure's on as they attempt to pull off a picture-perfect event that meets Anthea's exacting standards.

There will be no excuses allowed: the housewives have to make running their house their top priority and each week Anthea will crown one of them as the Best Housewife.

After all the tips and training, will the contestants transform from domestic disasters into domestic delights? Or are Anthea's standards just too high?

RDF Media is looking for volunteers to take part in this fun new series. They could be anyone who is responsible for looking after their home, including working women as well as stay-at-home mums.
