IN RIO de Janeiro in Brazil, there’s a man a named Mar­cio who lives in a gi­ant sand­cas­tle. Not only has he built a palace of sand, com­plete with 40 tur­rets, but he’s also made a six me­tre square wooden struc­ture in­side. This gives him the cov­eted beach­side life­style rent-free.

Although the plumb­ing’s not great so he has to run into the sea ev­ery now and again.

This is just one of the many as­tound­ing ‘prop­er­ties’ fea­tured in this doc­u­men­tary about weird and won­der­ful homes from around the world.

Lux­ton points out that Bri­tain’s strict plan­ning poli­cies mean our houses are usu­ally “func­tional, but lack­ing in a cer­tain imag­i­na­tion”.

He’s keen to see won­drous places that “bat­tle medi­ocrity” and ask why the own­ers choose to live there. “Bonkers” is a word that comes up once or twice.

In Ari­zona, a cou­ple has built Fal­con’s Nest, a 10-storey high build­ing with 135 steps – the lo­cals hate it, but it’s got great views from the top.

And you could bungee off it in case of fire ap­par­ently.

In Utah, Char­lie meets a group of sci­en­tists who are pre­tend­ing MAYA didn’t want any­one to know about her and Ja­cob. But now Ja­cob tells Maya how guilty he feels and she agrees that David de­serves to know the truth. But will they re­ally come clean and tell him about their kiss?

Mean­while, Leanna and Noah con­tinue their bad be­hav­iour. This time they get Amelia to dis­tract Vanessa, then they let an­i­mals out of their cages at the vets. Else­where, Doug gets vi­o­lent with Bob. TEN­SIONS are al­ready boil­ing over be­tween Eve­lyn and Fiz, and when Hope bites Ruby, Fiz is left with no choice but to ac­cept her lit­tle girl needs help.

Mean­while, Sinead feels guilty when Daniel thanks St­eff for help­ing her cope with the chemo. Else­where, Toyah and Imran en­joy some af­ter­noon de­light in an empty flat, but they’re in­ter­rupted by Leanne with Nick in tow. Imran hides on the bal­cony while Toyah locks her­self in the bath­room.
