Heather Carter, managing director at Blenheim Palace: “It was a great pleasure and a lot of fun to have Interior Design Masters with Alan Carr film with us at Blenheim Palace in September last year.

“They were here for five days filming both at the palace and the lodges, and we managed to keep it secret until the big reveal last night on BBC1. 

“We have a lot of filming here at the palace and it gives us great reach into new audiences.

“We know that being featured on such a popular programme as Interior Design Masters will entice more people to visit the palace and book one of the lodges.”
