Channel 4 viewers had their minds blown by a disappearing bathroom in last night’s episode of documentary show George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces.
The first instalment of the new series, which aired last night (Wednesday, June 17), transformed an old bakehouse into a tiny residential space.
What happened in the first episode?
Making the most of the limited space, the minuscule building still housed a kitchen, sofa bed and a dining table, which cleverly folded away behind a framed picture on the wall.
But the most incredible feature was an “invisible” bathroom tucked away in the kitchen.
To access it, they pulled on a handle and an ingenious mechanism revealed a toilet, shower and sink.
Reacting on Twitter, viewers called the feature “very clever”. Some even thought it was “the best thing” on the show since it started eight years ago.
What did viewers think of it?
One tweeted: “@thedragontower really enjoyed tonight’s #amazingspaces. That kitchen/bathroom arrangement was mind blowing. Very, very clever!”
Someone else wrote: “Still trying to work out how the bathroom works on #amazingspaces. Mind blown!”
“That hidden bathroom was the best thing I’ve seen on this show,” said a third, adding: “Genius! #AmazingSpaces.”
Still trying to work out how.
A fourth said: “That disappearing bathroom was incredible. Still can’t get my head around how they managed to fit in the bog #AmazingSpaces.”

“A great renovation,” someone else said. “And how good was that invisible bathroom?! #AmazingSpaces.”
Another impressed viewer wrote, alongside a string of clapping emojis: “Truly amazing hidden bathroom.”
“#amazingspaces lost my head watching that spinning kitchen unit become a bathroom mirror. That bloke’s a genius,” one appreciative viewer said.

Architect and host George Clarke was just as impressed with the bathroom as viewers.
“That is amazing, that is genius,” he said when he saw it. “Mind bending, space transforming magical work you’ve done there. To have the idea is one thing; to build it, to make it work, to make it function as brilliantly as this does. That’s off the scale.”
– George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces continues on Wednesday (June 24) at 9pm on Channel 4
