Rich Holiday Poor Holiday sees fortunate families swap holidays with poorer ones to see how they differ to what they’re used to. In the latest episode which aired on Channel 5 tonight, viewers took to Twitter to share how annoyed they were with what they were watching.
The show showed two wealthy friends from London, who are used to glamorous holidays, swap with a single mother who can’t afford to take her adult children abroad.
Julia and Katya are well used to holidays all over the world including places like Mauritius and Hawaii, to mention a few.
They swapped holidays with Annie and her three children from East Lothian who are unable to afford to go abroad together.
The two wealthy friends jetted off to Tenerife for two nights in a resort hostel, followed by a working break at the islands’ horse rescue centre.
Meanwhile, Annie and her adult children had a week at a luxury historic mansion hotel in the Mediterranean resort of Antalya in Turkey.
However viewers took to Twitter to share their shock that such a “cheap” holiday was picked for the family who cannot afford to travel abroad.
One person wrote: “The rich women usually go to Mauritius and Hawaii on holiday but they sent the poor family to Turkey?
“Surely that is so cheap compared to the luxury they are used to?”

Another said: “@channel5_tv have you cut back on the budget for rich holiday poor holiday this series? Always pair of friends and volunteering holidays which I don’t think the poorer families would normally do.”
A viewer suggested that this episode was filmed during the pandemic and that there may have been travel restrictions in place at the time.
One other Twitter user was left confused over the fact that the friends were sent to Tenerife when the poorer family can’t afford to go there.
One person said: “The poor family usually go on caravan holidays but they sent the rich family to Tenerife for two nights, am I missing something?”
“Are they calling Tenerife cheap? I think it’s quite luxurious in my opinion,” one viewer shared.
Another commented: “Bit different from the usual caravan and camping holidays that these so-called poor families go on.”
“I swear the poor family usually go on cheap holidays so why on earth are they sending the others to Tenerife,” another said.
At the end of the episode, the families were shown just how much their holidays cost.
Julia and Katya were shown that their stay in Tenerife came to a grand total of £422.
They shared how shocked they were over how much fun they had for such little money.
Meanwhile, Annie and her three children who headed to Turkey were shocked by the cost of theirs.
Even though they weren’t in the typical glamorous holiday location like Mauritius, their stay still came to a grand total of £11,788.
The family spoke of their shock and shared how even though their holiday was luxurious, they could have still had the same amount of fun elsewhere.
Previous episodes of Rich Holiday Poor Holiday saw a ‘poor’ family given an adventure holiday where they stayed in a tree house.
