Channel 4 has commissioned a bold new lifestyle series where people from all walks of life will have honest conversations about their financial dilemmas with their loved ones. Save Well, Spend Better will see sets of couples, families and friends meet at a specially constructed ‘Money Hub’, rigged with cameras, to have the frank and sometimes uncomfortable conversations about cash that they have been putting off. The 6-part series is produced in partnership with Lloyds Bank.
Contributors will open up to a team of four specialists who will give them practical advice to help rescue their finances and fix their relationships. Counsellor and life coach Anna Williamson (Celebs Go Dating, This Morning) presents the series, and will offer guidance to each pair entering the Money Hub alongside fellow experts award-winning entrepreneur and CEO Bianca Miller-Cole (The Apprentice 2014), financial adviser Emmanuel Asuquo, and global financial consultant and author of ‘The Wealth Chef’ Ann Wilson. The team will deliver advice for a variety of financial worries: from pensions and debt, to secret spending and relationships at breaking point.
Anna Williamson comments: “I want to take away the embarrassment and anxiety around money and get couples talking honestly about their finances to help fix their relationships”.
The 6 x 30 series is produced by Firecracker Scotland with Executive Producer Elspeth Ohare and will be filmed in Glasgow. The series has been commissioned for Channel 4 by Deborah Dunnett, Commissioning Editor, Popular Factual and Timothy Hancock, Commissioning Editor, Features & Formats.
