Can parents of spoilt teenagers and twentysomethings reverse the years of over-indulging and mollycoddling?
Thanks to them their kids have become bone idle, workshy and devoid of life skills. Now these parents have had enough. They want 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 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 is ejected by the people who made them what they are - their parents.
It is the final week and just Dogan, Dina and Danielle remain, battling it out to become the most adult. They are set their toughest challenge yet when they are forced to each manage a flat renovation project.
To help the parents ascertain how much genuine progress their little cherubs have made over the previous four weeks, they enlist the help of professional lifecoach Matthew Stone.
The flats they make over are on behalf of youth charity Kids Company, who offer a one-off opportunity for vulnerable young people to improve their living conditions. They have one day to complete the project, and 1,000 pounds for materials and furniture.
Dogan throws himself wholeheartedly into the task, whereas Dina struggles to manage her team of ten volunteers. Danielle hands over the reins to her mentor Rene halfway through the day, relinquishing any responsibility for team leadership.
The overall winner is then announced.
