Series 1 · Episode 1
We meet childhood sweethearts Sam and Lara and young family of three, Jack, Jaseleigh and baby Kaydee.
Sam and Lara have been together for 5 years and live with Sam’s Nan Jean in a swanky house in Islington. Sam, a model lives rent and care free, and has been known to blow a week’s wages on one night out. Lara’s not much better, with her expensive collection of handbags and shoes. Living at home might help the bank balance but not the sex life: there’s no lock on the bedroom door, and Nan isn’t one to knock…so a handy dumbbell proves the only thing keeping the couple’s life private.
As Sam and Lara move into their own place, the question is can they reign in their expensive taste and forego pricey nights out? Who responsibility for the diminishing budget? A couple used to the finer things, will it be just one long party or an emotional nightmare? And when push comes to shove, will they head back to the penthouse at Nan’s or embrace their new responsibility and interruption free life?
Across the country Jack and Jaseleigh live in South Wales with Jaseleigh’s doting parents John and Julie. With a small baby, Jack and Jaseleigh live a cosy life, not lifting a finger at home. Jaseleigh is her daddy’s princess and Jack doesn’t just live with his father-in-law, he works for him as well. Now Jack wants to be king of his own home and prove he can provide for his family
Moving their the young family out for a week is a long time when you’re barely house trained and strangers to a shopping list. Will fake-tan remain a priority, pies become a staple food, and how will the pair cope when suddenly hit with a blow to their finance? Will Jack and Jase relish their new found freedom or will it be straight back to the Hotel of Mum and Dad.
