Nathan and Rico, once familiar with the struggle of living pay check to pay check, now enjoy the luxury of spending lavishly on holidays in Mexico and Dubai.

Accustomed to spacious accommodations, they face a new challenge: navigating a narrowboat along the Leeds and Liverpool Canal.

This adventure tests their comfort limits, as they deal with Britain’s steepest lock and partake in a public Morris dancing event. Will this journey outside their comfort zone deepen their appreciation for life’s simpler aspects and strengthen their friendship?

In contrast, Sarah and Victoria embark on an adrenaline-packed trip to Finland, renowned for its costly lifestyle. Fresh out of college, Victoria stands at life’s crossroads, hesitant to embrace new experiences.

Sarah hopes this Arctic escapade, filled with ice swimming and dog sledding, will encourage Victoria to embrace change and aim high. Together, they embark on a transformative journey, uncovering life’s true value and smoothing out their relationship’s rough edges.

Rich Holiday, Poor Holiday airs on Channel 5 on Sunday, 7 January 2024 at 9:00PM.

This is the fifth episode of the third series.
