How The Other Half Live - Part 2 of 3

Thursday, August 6 on 4

Brandon (9) lives with his brother Marcus, mum Michaela and step-dad Shaun in one of the South East’s most deprived neighbourhoods. He doesn’t even have a bedroom. He goes to bed in his mum’s room and is carried through to sleep on the sofa when she goes to bed. Ashley (13) and Daisy (10) live with their mum and dad Sam and Scott in a secure gated community. They also have a house in Spain. Sam grew up in a 16-storey block of flats and doesn’t want her kids to take their life for granted, so Sam and Scott have decided to help out Brandon and his family.
