What is this episode about

Two families from different socioeconomic backgrounds trade places for a week so that both can experience what life is like for the other half of the country. Will the families learn that they have more in common by the weekend than their economic differences might indicate? Or will they realise that economic status distinguishes people more than social status, race, or gender? Is there a decline in a family’s quality of life when financial resources are limited? Does money really bring happiness? that’s a question the show attempts to answer.

Maxie, a millionaire who drives a Lamborghini, trades places with Danny and Nicky, two dish washers at a local café, in the premiere episode of a new series.

Both families are put to the test in this uplifting episode that includes boxing, supercars, and Botox as they investigate the age-old question of whether or not money can buy happiness.


Former boxing champion turned successful businesswoman, Maxine McCarthy now runs Cosmetic Couture, Manchester’s premier beauty school. She is generous with her money and time, but she is also very picky about who she helps because of her high standards of morality. Danny and Nicky are two low-income individuals who hope to one day open their own beauty salon. Both Danny, a barber, and Nicky, a make-up artist, manage to fit in college training despite working long hours and caring for a combined five children.

Gold and Versace wallpaper adorn the walls of Maxine’s lavish Cheshire mansion. Danny and Nicky are taking their kids on a weeklong vacation to a pleasure palace, and they couldn’t be more excited. Meanwhile, Maxine and her kids and housekeeper Chor show up at the Manchester flat Danny and Nicky rent. They quickly find out how difficult it is to shop while on a strict budget, and they are impressed by Danny and Nicky’s dedication to their studies when they visit the college where they are both enrolled. When Maxine learns that Danny also finds time to box for a good cause, she has even more admiration for him.

In contrast, Nicky hears about Maxine from her former boxing trainer and thinks of her as a superhuman. They aced an impromptu test of their cold-calling skills during a visit to Maxine’s clinic, where Danny was a patient. Everything is set for the big reveal at the final meeting, which will help Danny and Nicky move closer to their salon dream.
