When will DIY SOS featuring Mildenhall’s Simon Dobbin air?
A Suffolk family had the BBC’s DIY SOS team spend 10 days at their property in November.
The DIY SOS team were making improvements to the home of Simon Dobbin, who was left with permanent brain damage after an unprovoked attack in March 2015.
The renovations to the home include a downstairs extension and bespoke care provision Mr Dobbin needs.
However, we wont be able to see the transformation of the property until late 2018 when the show airs.
Mr Dobbin, a loving father, husband and football fan, was set-upon by around 25 men after watching his team Cambridge United play away at Southend FC.

Mrs Dobin previously said: “I’m very excited that Simon will now have the space he deserves.
“Since the court case it has been very difficult, but with the help of DIY SOS and the response from the community it has been a massive pick me up for myself, Simon and our daughter, Emily.”
