A resurfaced clip is being described as the 'best reaction to a home makeover' ever. Watch here:
Typically - particularly on US home makeover shows - we expect to see families jumping for joy or breaking down in tears as their unrecognisably transformed homes are revealed to them.
But on Your Home In Their Hands, in which properties are handed over to amateur designers, a positive outcome was never guaranteed.
That said, John Geoghegan's reaction was more hostile than anyone could have expected.
In the clip - which first aired back in 2015 but has gone viral once again - John and his wife Rachel are shown their bedroom's makeover, at which point things fall sharply off a cliff.
Opening their eyes, the couple are visibly shocked. If you look closely enough, you can almost see the exact moment John's soul is ripped out of his a**e and that flicker of optimism he had had just moments earlier dies a dark death.
So, what did he think of his newly-coated chambre?
"Nah, it's too much. For me, it's too busy," he says bluntly.
"I wouldn't have done anything like it and I don't like it. You're supposed to be able to sleep in a bedroom and it's like a kid's play area.
"I think it looks horrendous, it doesn't look anything like a bedroom. Sorry but it's a big thumbs down from me.
"It's hideous, I think it's even too much for Rachel if she was to tell the truth."
Rachel is less forthcoming with her feedback though, saying: "I do like the bed and the wardrobes. I like the theme of it. I like the lights."
But John is having none of it and can't believe the betrayal.
"It's rank," he says shaking his head. "I don't like it at all, definitely not."
Then - having been prodded by present Celia Sawyer - Rachel adds: "I think it will grow on us. I do like the bed and the wardrobes. I did ask for colour."
John makes it clear it won't have time to grow on them though, 'cause he's gonna change it sharpish.
Asked what message he would give the designer, he says: "Don't touch the other room."
And then, to round off the beautiful segment, Rachel suggests to John that the makeover might grow on him, to which he responds: "Fungus grows. That's horrible."
The clip was recently reposted on Instagram, with social media users in hysterics.
One wrote: "Arms folded, proper disapproving dad stance."
Another said: "The presenter looks so defeated as if she didn't just show them an absolute atrocity."
A third added: "Rachel definitely doesn't like it."
Wouldn't be surprised if that room was razed to the ground shortly after filming, to be honest.
