Viewers couldn't get enough of Daniel O'Donnell's reaction to the cost hikes on Room To Improve
In DOD we trust.
But Daniel O'Donnell did not trust in Room To Improve host Dermot Bannon once the initial estimates of €200,000 rocketed to somewhere in the region of €400,000.
Daniel was very particular about a specific en-suite bathroom that would essentially result in moving a load-bearing wall and taking out all of the ceilings.
Dermot suggests that getting rid of the en-suite would scale the projected cost back by at least €20,000, but Daniel tells him:
“It is a ridiculous figure. You came first of all with a fantastic plan and now you are taking the whole lot away again. There is no point in beating about the bush.”
Dermot tries to reassure him, telling him this is a normal process and they will “hammer” and “chip” away at the costs and go back to contractors about it, but Daniel is not impressed telling him:
“You will need to have some chisel and hammer to get this back to something that I’ll like” and going on to tell the cameras: “Even though I would like things done to the house, I couldn’t care less if there was nothing done.”
Viewers picked up on this different side to Daniel O'Donnell, and reacted accordingly:

In fairness to Daniel, you say it'll be under 200k and then you come with a quote nearly 400k? I'd be pissed off too. #roomtoimprove
