‘Rich House Poor House’ seeking Cheshire families


Emporium Productions, working on behalf of Channel 5, is on the search for a family in Cheshire to take part in the third series of the hit documentary series ‘Rich House Poor House’.

The latest series of the programme has been commissioned by Channel 5 following the success of series one and two.

The production company says it has been overwhelmed by the positive feedback from viewers and the media.

In each episode two families swap homes, budgets and lifestyles for a week in a real-life, Airbnb-style arrangement.

While there’s a contrast in financial circumstances, the two families in each episode are matched by the things they have in common.

The focus of the programme is on how money affects their family life rather than an examination of the specifics of each family’s financial circumstances.

The ambition of the programme is to look at how money relates to happiness through the eyes of the two families experiencing life at the opposite ends of the wealth scale.

The families’ perspectives give a thought-provoking and fascinating insight into how we live our lives.

Those behind it say the series is insightful with genuine purpose but also sets out to be entertaining, heart-warming and uplifting.

However different their financial circumstances are, the two families in each programme have shared values and common ground that they discover across the week’s swap.
