The Big Breakfast House
This is where the Channel 4 big breakfast house used to be.
Location: Lock Keepers Cottage, Old Ford Lock, Bow, London, E3 2NN
Description: The show was launched by then unknowns Chris Evans and Gaby Roslin, who have gone on to enjoy great success in other TV and radio ventures.
Double-act Johnny Vaughan and Denise Van Outen also proved popular presenters, drawing large audiences to the breakfast slot.
But presenters Richard Bacon, Amanda Byram and Mike McClean saw ratings slump to 250,000 towards the end of its 10-year run and the show was finally axed.
There had been rumours that the show's founder Bob Geldof would blow up the house on the final day.
Instead, the show's presenters signed off with a song and computer tricks were used to make the lock-keeper's cottage look like it had disappeared.
Tragic lovers Paula Yates and INXS singer Michael Hutchence first met on the bed upstairs, where Paula used to interview guests.
Thousands of stars, including Take That, Woody Allen, Samuel L Jackson, the Spice Girls visited the house.
