The Dengineers rips up the blueprints of traditional makeover programmes and instead presents an amazing, kid-focused transformation show. The Dengineers are an elite team dedicated to making out-of-this-world dens for deserving children. Children love creating their own private hideaways, either in the house, the backyard or even up a tree. The Dengineers travel throughout the UK making children’s den dreams become a reality – building wherever and whatever the child wants! Presenters Mark Wright (series 1 & 2), Joe Tracini (series 3) and Lauren Layfield lead the show, along with the build trio: Sege Rosella, builder extraordinaire and the mastermind behind some truly awe-inspiring worlds; Olga Skumial, TV and theatre set designer  and creator of magical atmospheres; and Dee Saigal, digital genius and a technology queen. This visually exciting series aims to inspire, inform and educate. There are jaw-dropping surprises, celebrity twists, amazing feats of engineering and (of course!) the kids are in charge!

Series 3

The third series of this exciting makeover series returns with presenters Lauren Layfield and Joe Tracini and the elite team of Dengineers creating amazing out-of-this world dens. For adventure, for hanging out with friends and family and for making children’s dreams come true. The series features a host of new dens, including a martial arts den, a witchcraft and wizardry den and a stargazing observatory den as well as a chance for the presenters to revisit some of the dens from series 1 and 2 to see how they have changed the lives of their very special Dengineers.

Series 2

In this series our intrepid Dengineers build a magical library den for a girl who loves books, a dazzling Hollywood cinema den for a girl and her mum who love the movies and a Gingerbread den for a girl who is fed up with negative comments about her ginger hair!
