Channel 4 launches ‘The Secret Pauper’

Channel 4 today announced plans to broadcast a new series later this year: ‘The Secret Pauper’.  The show will see ex-members of Parliament desperately attempting to cling on to their former champagne and truffles lifestyle, visiting a number of high class restaurants and ordering the most expensive and pointless items from the menu.

Only upon receiving the bill will they reveal their secret, telling the Maître d’ that they are in fact flat-broke, out of work and is their any chance of ‘gissing them a job?’  Producers are also said to be working on a celebrity edition, where former reality TV stars will be doing the same in Bond Street.  The series is to be narrated by Bernard Hill.
