Two millionaire friends who are used to the finer things in life were shocked when they swapped holidays and lives with two budgeting friends on Channel 5’s Rich Holiday, Poor Holiday.
Lyn, 76, lives in a posh part of London and loves the finer things in life, including sports cars and the best holidays money can buy.

The perfect getaway for her would be a £15,000 11 day break in St. Lucia, which is a far cry from the cheap caravan site in Kent she ended up on with her friend, Hugh.
The pair wanted to see how the other half live and to take themselves out of their comfort zone, so were intrigued to see what it would be like on in the static caravan.
Meanwhile, Keisha, 33, and Merritt, 34, got to go to Lyn and Hugh’s holiday of choice.
The French Alps would usually be out of the question for the friends, who both struggle to make ends meet.
So they were excited to go on a wellness break and mix with high flyers who get to spend time there.
Although the static caravan was a lot smaller to what Lyn and Hugh were used to, they started off their Kent holiday with a positive attitude.
But things took a turn when they realised they’d have to stick to Keisha and Merritt’s holiday allowance – just £100 for the week.
“I’ve paid more for a T-shirt,” Hugh admitted.
Lyn broke the rules ofon day two when she brought items from home with her, including a £26 truffle butter.
“I can cope with being bored and doing boring activities, but I can’t cope with eating cr*p,” Hugh said.
Hugh’s problems didn’t end there though, he couldn’t get a good night’s sleep in the box bedroom so decided to move to the sofa bed.
He decided to use the box bedroom as his wardrobe instead, which suited him much better.
When the cost of the cost of their caravan holiday, £505, was revealed, Hugh and Lyn were shocked by how much it was.
Both admitted it was more expensive than they thought it would be.
Meanwhile, Keisha and Merritt’s posh holiday cost £13,500, which blew their minds.
