how is it a secret?



The series sees wealthy philanthropists arrive in a rundown community, live on the most basic income and try to find worthy causes they can help.

Millionaire marketing guru Carl Hopkins spent 10 days posing as a community warden and being followed around by a camera crew.

Carl grew up on a tough council estate in Leeds but, having done very well for himself in life, says he wanted an opportunity to give something back to worthy causes.

He said: “I had been wanting to do something for a while but it can be difficult. Finding the time is hard but, also, as a middle-aged man, if you go up to a community centre out of the blue and say ‘I want to work with kids’ you tend to get a few funny looks!

“The production company set everything up. I heard about the project through my wife, who works in the media and she got a Press release from the company saying they were looking for suitable people.”

Carl is remaining tight-lipped about how much he gave to good causes but he did provide cash for Easington Colliery brass band, Easington Social Welfare Club and the Spyral Project, an urban farm run by Jimmy Naylor.

no ,the people who are with the millionaire dont know hes rich . they mingle with people posing as having no or very little money themselves . Often the people on there are scraping money together to make ends meet .....They choose people who they have met at the end who they want to give help to and reveal their identity. The shows quite good ......its not like a reality show as such as the only people in on the secret are the film crew and the person .....usually pretend to film a scenario to cover it up :thumbsup:

yeah ive watched it before, its quite interesting
