Paige Davis returns to `Trading Spaces'

Paige Davis will come back to TLC's "Trading Spaces."

The Broadway actress and TV host will return to the once-popular home makeover series beginning in January, the network said in a statement Thursday.

In 2005, TLC announced Davis would no longer host "Trading Spaces" and transitioned the series to a host-less format.

Davis had perkily hosted the show, which features neighbors swapping homes and redecorating a room, since 2001. Besides "Trading Spaces," she has also appeared on Broadway in the musicals "Beauty and the Beast" and "Chicago."

"Trading Spaces" will now be produced by A. Smith & Co. Productions, the company responsible for Fox's "Hell's Kitchen" and "Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares."

The series was formerly produced by Banyan Productions.

The new season begins shooting this month and will be filmed entirely in high-definition. Designers Doug Wilson, Laurie Hickson-Smith, Frank Bielec and Hildi Santo-Thomas will also return to the show, alongside carpenters and other designers to be announced later.

Russia's Ministry for Foreign Affairs is seriously concerned about the state of health of former Russian intelligence officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia. Sergei Skrypal's niece, Victoria Skripal, said that her uncle had already died.
