Nurse in tears at living room makeover after nearly dying from Covid on sofa

A nurse traumatised by nearly dying from Covid in her own living room sobbed at the result of a beautiful home makeover.

Lombe Mwanza and her husband Gregory were treated to a fresh start on Great Home Transformation on Channel 4.

Presenters Emma Willis and Nick Grimshaw teamed up with award-winning interior designer Alex Dauley and craftsman Tim Hitchens to rejuvenate the house and make in full of happy memories again.

That had to find a way to make the living room less cluttered while still having space for Gregory's game consoles and the couple's two adult children who had moved back in.

As they enter the living room, Lombe gasps and covers her mouth in shock, whispering: "Oh my God."

The living room walls are now green and blue and their old sofa has been replaced with a sleek modern one, topped with colourful cushions.

Framed family photos cover the walls and Lombe starts to cry, while Gregory rubs her shoulder.

There is also removable wallpaper on the walls which Alex points out is perfect if you are renting.

Emma asks a crying Lombe if it's "tears of happiness" and she replies: "Yes, happiness and appreciation of the work and thought that has gone into this."

Lombe caught Covid in April 2020 during the first few weeks of lockdown and didn't believe she would survive.

Recalling her trauma, Lombe said: "I keep sitting in the same seat where I nearly passed in this living room and the memories just come flooding back."

She explained: "I was watching telly and suddenly I couldn't breathe.

"He (Gregory) held me in his arms and I could feel myself going slowly. I knew that this is it, I'm not going to come out of this."

"It was the darkest moment. I nearly lost my wife", Gregory added.

The Great Home Transformation airs tonight at 8pm on Channel 4
