Kirstie Allsopp, presenter of Relocation Relocation and Kirstie's Homemade Home, has slammed luxury development One Hyde Park on Twitter.
In response to @buyingagent Tracy Kellett's tweet saying "Outside One Hyde Park... It's not got any prettier", @KirstieMAllsopp tweeted, "it is staggering that it was allowed, so ugly and worse inside!"
@buying agent replied, "Agreed, have been inside too. And now there is a bowler hatted chap posted outside for additional silliness ;-)".

Kirstie Allsopp is known for voicing her strong opinions - something that has no doubt contributed to her popularity on Twitter - and it's unsurprising that One Hyde Park, which has provoked controversy from commentators throughout the property industry, hasn't passed under her radar.
The residential development is said to be the most expensive in the world and is serviced by the neighbouring Mandarin Oriental hotel. One Hyde Park enjoys an enviable location in the upmarket London area of Knightsbridge and looks onto, you guessed it, Hyde Park.
Its January opening ceremony was marked by the release of 5,000 gold balloons. Several famous faces were in attendance, including Gary Lineker, Bernie Ecclestone and Holly Valance, the girlfriend of Nick Candy who, along with brother Christian, was responsible for the development.
While exact prices are only revealed to prospective buyers, it is believed that a square foot costs £6,000 - so a three-bedroom flat would sell for around £15 million.
