Sussex woman on Channel 5 shows Hoarder Homes Brighton News

A SUSSEX woman was featured in her own episode of Hoarder Homes on Channel 5 after struggling to keep up with her hoarding behavior.

The latest episode of Hoarder Homes: No Room To Move was filmed in a house in Lancing that was so crowded it left owner Judith in tears as she struggled to live in chaos.

Following the death of her mother and a diagnosis of Aspergers, Judith’s hoarding spun out of control – the series follows Judith as she tries to get her life back.

Channel 5’s hit show aims to help some of Britain’s worst accumulators declutter their homes with the help of expert guests.

Judith featured in the third episode of the new season, and viewers saw clips of her two-bedroom home where almost every room was full of items.

She said, “It just makes me want to cry.

“It’s weird, how is my life?

“How is this what I created? It just doesn’t make sense.”

The episode shows Judith unable to enter the master bedroom as it is filled with years of clutter.

A number of rooms in Judith’s house are inaccessible due to her storage habits and with various windows left open that she cannot close, the house had become a health and safety hazard.

She said, “I don’t really need all that stuff and that’s the irony of it.

“I always dreamed that all my things would fit in my car and that I could go anywhere.”

During a tour of her home, Judith showed how she and Two Socks were to live in a room she described as a ‘multipurpose space’.

In one clip, her bathroom is full of personal belongings, including in the tub, on the floor, and around the toilet.

Judith explained that two years ago she was diagnosed with Asperger’s, which contributed to her hoarding.

She said, “It’s like I made a wall so I have protection from the outside and I whisper to myself.

“I fill it with so much mess that no one can get in anyway and I don’t have to worry about social invitations and helping people because I’m not in a situation where I can.

“But I’m sabotaging myself at the same time and I really feel like I’m in quicksand.

“I’m proving I have a problem and I need help here, I don’t know what to do.”

Extreme cleaners were invited to her home to help Judith get up to speed and assess the situation.

The cleaners started in the bedroom and found that Judith was overwhelmed by all the memories the clearance evoked.

After her mother passed away, Judith’s hoarding increased one level as she struggled to come to terms with her loss.

When her mother passed away, Judith inherited all of her belongings, so she asked a bereavement counselor to help her go over some of the items.

The expert cleaners as well as Judith managed to clear more than two dumpsters of clutter from her bungalow.

At the end of the show, a dramatic reveal is shown in which Judith expressed how much it would help change her life.
