ABOUT MR&MRSDIY

Hi there, firstly thanks for visiting the site! We’re Craig and Laura Phillips, a husband and wife duo that share a passion for DIY.

Mr & Mrs DIY was born over a glass of wine sat in front of the TV at home. How great it would be if we could share our knowledge and give you tips and tricks to improve your home and empower you so that you don’t have to call out the tradesman for the most basic job.

Craig is one of the UK’s most recognisable and trusted faces on TV in the DIY and home improvements sector. With thousands of live and pre recorded hours under his belt he has a wealth of knowledge and experience to pass on.

Before winning the first series of Big Brother in 2000 which launched Craig’s TV career, he ran a very successful building company employing over 30 staff doing everything from plans to completion.

With an art teacher as a mother and a photographer as a father creativity is in Laura’s genes. From an early age Laura was taught DIY by her dad, a keen DIYer. Never shy with a hammer, a strong eye for interior design and bucket loads of enthusiasm, she still manages to teach Craig a thing or two even with his 28 years of experience!

We’d also like you to meet our brand mascot, Sydney the Bulldog. Sydney was originally bought as a wedding present from Craig to Laura. She’s since become a big part of Mr & Mrs DIY and is always helping out and getting involved at the workshop.
