Next Episode of Wanted Down Under is
Series in which British families are given a look at life in Australia ahead of possible migration.
Deborah and Gethin were bowled over by the Australian lifestyle on honeymoon there in 2004, making a pact to return permanently once they had started a family.
Their plans suffered a setback when both their fathers died suddenly within a week of each other and the couple resigned themselves to staying close to their mums in Wales. But their desire for an outdoor lifestyle was too great to ignore. Encouraged by work opportunities, they moved to Dubai in 2012, believing it would give them the lifestyle they wanted while knowing they were still close enough to home should they be needed.
Captivated by family tales of adventure and romance in a land down under, Keith and Mary Hanson have talked of creating their own reality in Australia. With Keith now in his forties, he thinks they should make the move sooner rather than later - and believing it is the perfect place for him and Mary to start a family, he has already secured a visa.
Ever since his twin sister emigrated to Sydney, Rehan Farooq has longed to follow in her footsteps. Now a dad to two young children, he is more convinced than ever that his family should make the move too. But having relocated ten times in the last fourteen years because of Rehan's job, his wife Tanya thinks Australia could be a step too far. Currently living round the corner from her parents, she worries about leaving them behind and taking their only grandchildren away from them.
Laura Evans thought her life would be perfect when she set up her dream bridal business but, although business is booming, she didn't realise just how much she would have to sacrifice to succeed. Now working seven days a week, she has precious little time with her husband Andrew and young son Brodie. Desperate to turn things around, she thinks life could be better in Australia. Although she has never been, Andrew has told her all about it, following his travels there over ten years ago.
Will a trial week in Perth convince both Laura and Andrew the country really does offer the work-life balance they crave, or will they decide the emotional cost of leaving loved ones at home is too high a price to pay?
