Wiltshire shops are getting another makeover - as a hit BBC One show returns to the county.

But this time, it’s all about getting into the festive spirit for the stars of Interior Design Masters, as designers get creative in Salisbury.

Through a competition held by Salisbury BID, three businesses will be chosen to host Christmas window displays.

If they are selected, they will then get to have a festive window created by one of the designers seen in the last series of BBC’s Interior Design Masters. 

A “top tips guide” is also set to be given by one of the show’s designers, Fran, who went to Salisbury in July to get to know the city's business owners.

The idea for this is to allow businesses to use the guide so they can come up with their own unique designs.

The upcoming episode isn't the only time Salisbury appeared on the programme. Casa Fina, Brides By Victoria, and Annie's Just Jane from the city were featured on a March episode, which was hosted by comedian Alan Carr.

The show included designers Fran, Amy, and Dean.

The competition, run by Salisbury BID, is open to all businesses in the city centre.

Anyone wanting to enter will need to fill out an application form and give a short brief as to what they’d like to see in their Christmas display.

Fran, Amy and Dean will then pick the three winners, and use the brief as a basis for their final designs before returning to Salisbury in November to build their surprise Christmas creations.

Chief Executive of Salisbury BID, Robin McGowan, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to welcome back these three talented designers to Salisbury.

"They made an impact on Interior Design Masters and now they return to help us create a truly magical and unique Salisbury this Christmas."

Meanwhile, star of the show, Fran Lee, said: “Salisbury holds a special place in our hearts so it’s fantastic to return to create something special for local businesses, especially at a time when they need a boost. Christmas is the most wonderful, magical time of the year, and we’re going to make sure that is true in Salisbury."

Susi Mason, owner of Casa Fina and Salisbury BID Director, has been instrumental in bringing the competition together.

She said: “Fran did an amazing job when she was given the task of re-designing Casa Fina and I cannot wait to see what she, along with Amy and Dean, have in store for our businesses this Christmas."
