Can parents of spoilt teenagers and twentysomethings reverse the years of over-indulging and mollycoddling?
Thanks to them their kids have become bone idle, work shy and devoid of any life skills. But now these parents have had enough. They are going to try to fast-track their overprotected brats into fully functioning, independent adults using real life challenges in just four weeks.
With the prize of a round-the-world trip on offer, these eight 17 to 25-year-olds have to give up their home comforts for a house in south east London where they must fend for themselves for the very first time - cooking, cleaning and, worst of all for them, working. Each episode, the most useless kid will be ejected by the very people who made them what they are - their parents.
The layabouts are thrust into the cut-throat world of fashion as they host a second-hand clothing fashion show. The domestic front is suffering, and in a desperate bid to take control of the situation, Sean calls a house meeting to create a cleaning rota. This is met with resistance by Nicky and Rachel, who refuse to clear up after themselves. A blocked loo sends the house into a spin and, uncharacteristically, Dogan saves the day and clears the blockage. Danielle and Dina venture into uncharted waters and attempt to cook themselves a meal from scratch, with unpalatable results.
