Jay Hunt and Benjamin Fry assist hairdresser Colin Chapman, sho loves spending but is now £20000 in debt.

I quite enjoy this, Fry has an interesting way of getting to the root of people's problems with money, which often appear to be rooted in deeper personal issues.

It's quite down to earth, but quite frankly I'm astonished at the people who earn less than £20k, yet live champagne lifestyles.

What is most interesting is how TV is slowly changing from the "Get Rich Quick", borrow, spend, live the high life etc, to slow down, take time for yourself, start saving etc.

The interest rate rise we've had, and the one that looks likely to come, will take a few months to show, but we're going to see a lot more of these shows.

In the meantime, enjoy the property porn, it's not going to last much longer.

This has been good quality fodder for quite some time now with a re-run of it being shown for the last two weeks on bbc3 at 8

It is amazing how stupid the people have been with there finances sometimes, however to their credit they do seem to turn things round and become reformed characters

The perfect antidote to kirsty and phil.

Just as property programs became fashionable i imagine there'll be a whole raft of these programs soon.

Anyone for another slice of schadenfreude Pie?

Plenty has been written on the history of banks.

Like the common man, they're just as keen to participate in the new found easy "wealth".

Many people in this country now have debts that they cannot repay during their lifetimes.

Sooner or later they're going to realise this.

Don't be surprised to see a banking crisis or two before this bust is out.
