Growing Up Poor: Britain’s Breadline Kids
Three articulate and engaging kids tell their own stories and wryly observe the impact poverty and homelessness is having on their families, including their parents’ mental health.
Filmed over the last 12 months, the 20-part documentary series follows Steph and Dom as they meet families who are planning to open, or who are already running, their own historic hotels in some of Britain’s most beautiful locations.
Each episode goes behind the scenes to meet the couples and families who have risked everything to turn their dream of running a hotel into a reality. From newlyweds working against the clock to renovate a 16th century castle, to a couple opening the doors to their 18th century boutique hotel for the very first time.
Across the series, we’ll see a whole host of stunning, interesting and quirky buildings as Steph and Dom lend a hand to help; from knocking down castle walls, digging up manor gardens, helping launch the hotels and even corralling noisy peacocks, they’ve really got stuck in.
