Rich House, Poor House is a documentary series in which couples with very different lifestyles swap homes to see how the other half live.
In this week's episode, a single mum with four jobs has big ambitions to start her own food business. Can a super-successful entrepreneur help make her dream come true? To put it mildly, Sue Bowers works hard. She lives in Ashby, Scunthorpe, in a two-bed terrace house with her 16-year-old son James, and works four jobs to keep afloat. She's a carer on Mondays, an assistant nurse Tuesday to Friday, she's a cleaner on Saturdays, and on Sundays she flips burgers. Sue does all she can to make ends meet and provide the best she can for 16-year-old James, but the jobs are low wage, and she has just £70 a week disposable income. Sue has a big dream though. Working for the NHS, she discovered the health benefits of hemp and wants to drop all her jobs and start a hemp food business. Swapping homes and living with Sue and James for a week are the Bradleys. Dad Nick, mum Sarah Jane and daughters Megan and Lucy have enjoyed a quite unbelievable success story. Nick originally trained as a primary school teacher but quit this to try and make it in the horse training business. He soon made enough to take the risk and set up Nick Bradley Racing, which has gone from strength to strength. He now owns and breeds hundreds of racehorses with Sarah Jane from his beautiful farm in Goxhill — and turns over millions of pounds every year. The experience is inspiring and life-changing on both sides, as the Bradleys learn a deep respect for hard-working Sue and work out a plan for her and James that is revealed in the final meet. Suffice to say, it's the stuff of dreams.
Devoted single Essex mum Ocean is desperate to build a better life for her eight-year-old daughter Oziana, but surviving on less than £60 a week is a huge struggle, and she dreams of leaving it all behind by opening a Caribbean food business. She swaps lives with multimillionaire Barrie and husband Scott, who have built a staggeringly successful business empire stretching from Beverley Hills to Chelmsford.
Dr Rashpal Singh and his wife Kiran own a successful cosmetics clinic and live with their four chidren in a large comfortable property in the suburbs of Middlesbrough. They swap lives for a week with Co Durham single mum Natalee, who survives on just £60 a week after bills and has taken out loans to try to start up her own nail business.
Families from opposite ends of the wealth and class divide swap homes, budgets and social status for seven days to discover how the other half live.
Lesley from Penarth is a carer for her husband Dave and is at risk of losing her home due to a rent increase. She swaps houses, budgets and lives with wealthy Cardiff- based design entrepreneur Nicky Bright and her daughter Morgan, who find out that living on a tight budget can strain any relationship.
