The creepy-looking Chapel shed, pictured above, can be found in the back garden of Rugby man Jamie Taylor.

He has dedicated a lot of time to making the building look as eery as possible and it will now be featured as a finalist on Channel 4 programme Amazing Spaces: Shed of the Year, which airs this Friday at 8pm.

Jamie explained there were around 3,000 entries to the competition and his creation has made it to the final 32.

There are eight categories of sheds and the winner of each category will be revealed during the show on Friday.

Jamie said: “The film crews came to my house and filmed the Chapel for three quarters of the day. Then at a later date we went down to London and filmed the final, which will be shown tomorrow night.

“It feels a bit nervewracking that it’s going to be on TV now.

“Some family and friends are coming over to watch it and then we might go out to the Chapel and light the candles to show people how eery it is.”

The Chapel is listed under the aptly named ‘unexpected’ category - but Jamie is keeping his lips sealed about whether or not his shed is a winner.

He said: “I live in Brinklow and all the locals are well behind it. So many people have told me they voted online.

“You’ll just have to wait and see if I’m through to the final 8!”

Amazing Spaces: Shed of the Year will be screened on Channel 4 at 8pm.
