The Coleman family from Harnham will be seen on Channel 5's Rich House, Poor House.

The programme, which is on tonight (Thursday October 4th) at 9.00pm, sees Jo, Peter, Lucy and Matt Coleman experience the daily routine of another family from Hampshire.

The Colemans are from the 'Rich House' of the show, with a weekly budget, after bills, of £1,800.

Their life swap counterparts, the Morgan family, have a weekly allowance of £158.

The documentary aims to give the each family a taste of 'how the other half live'.

In this clip from the programme, Salisbury teens Lucy and Matt Coleman tried their hand at bit of home cooking:

During the show, Harnham mum Jo admits that the weekly budget that's left for them is around the amount they normally spend on food alone - not taking things like fuel, activities and treats into consideration.

The end of the programme sees the two families meet up to talk about what they've learned from the experience and any lessons they'll take back to their normal lives.

We can see how the experiment unfolds on Channel 5 at 9.00pm.
