Shocked Britons are reportedly living in fear of returning home to find that strangers have paid for hundreds of thousands of pounds of improvements to their décor.
'It’s just a little flat, really,' said Mavis, 59. 'The hall needed a lick of paint and the taps in the bathroom were never to my taste, but otherwise I liked it. Imagine my surprise last Thursday when I walked in to what I can only describe as a whore’s boudoir'.
Mavis is just the latest victim of practical joker Lord Brownlow, who is in the habit of coughing up £200k at a time to decorate random homes with no expectation of anything in return. 'He just loves interior decorating', said a close friend. 'If he had enough money I think he’d cover every home in Britain in £840-per roll wallpaper'.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson has also received the Brownlow treatment, confirming his status as ‘man of the people’.
