The BAFTA-winning Wife Swap returns with a brand new series. Sparks fly as two wives from radically different families swap places for two weeks. It’s not just the wives that need to get used to a new family, but the husbands and children are given a wake-up call too as they have to adapt to new house routines. Packed with suspense, Wife Swap gets right to the heart of the way we live and lifts the lid on the choices different people make about how to live their lives: people’s spending priorities, what they expect of their partners of an evening, how they divide up the parenting, the shopping, the housework, how much or how little they go out, what role food plays in their lives, and what they want from their social lives.
Each wife arrives in their new home and has a chance to get accustomed to their surroundings before their new family arrive. Aided only by an instruction manual left by their predecessor, they must spend their first week living according to the rules of the original wife. However, during their second week the wives are allowed to run their new households as they see fit. Fascinating viewing!
For two weeks, Kate is going to leave behind her chaotic daily life to live with Mark and his three and a half year old daughter, Charlotte (Lotty) - an adorable child model. Tracey, Mark’s wife – a well groomed legal PA who gets up at 5am every day, will swap her peaceful existence as a mum of one, to see what life in a larger family is all about.
In this new five part series, which gives a whole new meaning to the term domestic bliss, wives from ten very different families agree to swap husbands, moody teenagers, the family home and lifestyles for two weeks.
