They have come to Nottingham hoping to help the Brook family, who are well and truly stuck in a rut. Tourism lecturer Janine is at her wits' end with husband Paul and their two girls, Rosie and Sophia, all of whom prefer snacking on sugary treats to following a healthy diet.

As the girls are fussy eaters Janine relies heavily on 'quick teas', convenient favourites she knows her children will eat.

Janine has secondary breast cancer and having exhausted all treatment options on the NHS is now faced with self-funding the drugs she may need in future, and so every penny this family can save really does count.
