Room to Improve viewers were left emotional after watching the second episode on Sunday night.

It definitely wasn’t an easy feat as the 1970s bungalow cost €303,000 and it required huge renovations. Enter Dermot Bannon who was here to save the day.

However, it wasn’t just the home renovation that had viewers loving this specific episode of the show.

Kate and Brian explained that they experienced a pregnancy loss during the renovation process.

They lost their baby girl at 21 weeks.

“We’re devastated. Kate’s doing okay, she’s doing as well as expected,” Brian said in an emotional moment.

Viewers shared their support for the couple who they branded as “wonderfully brave” for speaking about the pregnancy loss.

Kate is a native of Tipperary Town while her husband Brian is from Ballyea, Co Clare. The pair met on holidays in Marbella seven years ago and married during the pandemic.

Kate always dreamed about owning that bungalow and was able to make that dream a reality!

“Mum passed away during COVID and any time we passed she’d say, ‘That house has the best view in Cashel’,” Kate explained.

Room to Improve continues on RTÉ One on Sunday at 9:30pm
