One lucky couple bought their house six months ago for just £1 - yes, you read it right, £1! But their good fortunate didn't stop there.

Because, after six months of sweat, hard graft and taking on an extra job to fund the project, Rebecca Dennis and Chris Benn's house is now worth £60,000.

As well as fitting a new kitchen and re-decorating the entire house, they've even added a walk-in wardrobe. Now we're really jealous!

Photography student Rebecca and her self-employed fiancé, Chris, bought the two-bedroom house under a council-led renovation scheme in Stoke-on-Trent but never dreamed they'd make so much money on the property.

Rebecca said: "It would have been years before we could have afforded a house alone.

"My granddad heard about the scheme on TV and suggested we apply. We didn't fit the criteria during the first round of the scheme, but when it re-opened a year and a half later, we decided to do whatever it took to get a place."

Commenting on the amazing rejuvenation, Rebecca added: "It's a dream come true to have a house of our own.

"We're looking forward to it becoming a family area again where we can bring up children and people know their neighbours."
