THE most common DIY bodges are failed attempts to re-wire, fix leaks, fit new light sockets, unblock drains and bleed radiators, according to a survey by British Gas Homecare.
They live with complete bodges, projects left unfinished, holes in floors and walls, houses that look like bombsites for years on end.
Nick, 37, is no stranger to the odd bodge himself and admits: "I'd rather have my eyes taken out with a fork" than be a regular DIY-er.
