After a 17-year-break the beloved interior design show Changing Rooms is back on our screens, which of course means the return of the iconic Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen.

Whilst we watch to get tips for our own homes, Laurence of course couldn’t do the show without his trusty leather pants and viewers haven’t been shy sharing their opinions on social media.

One Twitter user posted saying: “Can anyone explain to me why @LlewelynBowen is wearing them leather trousers again? My eyes are seeing things they shouldn’t see and I just, can’t, stop, looking.”

Whilst another followed with: “Watching changing rooms thinking Lawrence must be hot in black leather trousers”.

A viewer read our minds as they commented saying: “Lawrence is wearing leather trousers, reminds me of that episode of Friends” – it’s funny because what happened to poor Ross, actually happened to Laurence too.

The design master revealed to OK! how he got stuck in the original pair of trousers when trying them on by saying: “I had this moment where I found them [the original leather trousers] – because I’m going to put them up for auction for charity – and I was thinking, “I’ve been doing a keto diet for the last couple of weeks, it’ll be fine.”

“But I put them on, and they got just beyond my knees, and then I fell over, and [my wife] Jackie had to come and rescue me.”


It doesn’t seem that all is negative as some fans took to praising the return of the noughties trend.

One user posted: “Yes #changingrooms bringing back my childhood crush in leather pants.”

With another saying: “I loved everything about new #changingrooms it was exactly what I wanted, the drama! the outrageousness! leather trousers! more more more.”

A third even said: “Love the fact I#changingrooms is trending at No.1! Who doesn’t love a bit of flamboyant LLB and his leather trousers.”

Whilst some questioned the trousers themselves, other fans of the show questioned the practicality of them as a viewer said: “As if you’d paint wearing leather trousers”.

Now don’t get us wrong, you’d definitely work up a sweat, but if you did get messy with the paint, at least all you’ll need is a wet wipe and they’d be as good as new.

So next time you’re giving your home a touch up, why not channel your inner fashionista and try doing it in a pair of leather trousers.
