Rich Kids Go Homeless
Today on Channel 5
In this revealing observational series, six young Brits, whose privileged lives have left them with the idea that homelessness is often the result of the victim’s own actions, and they could fix it if they really wanted to, have agreed to sleep rough on the streets of London for three nights. The rich kids want to prove that it’s easy to escape homelessness, and they all have a plan to make money and get off the streets. They’ll beg, get jobs and even start a business while surviving as rough sleepers during the winter months. Will meeting the real homeless people change their perspective on hi homelessness?
