Million Pound Hoax - Format

60 min eps

Imagine the dream has come true – you've just won the lottery – a life changing sum of money!

You tell your friends family and colleagues and watch, along with a lottery’s documentary film crew, as they revel in your luck, champagne flowing all round… But it’s not true. It’s the biggest lie you've ever told - and you've got to keep up that lie for five days, enduring the guilt and pain, because if you can keep up the lie – you’ll win each person you convince a luxury holiday. You are secretly challenged to become a selfish, rampant consumer and social climber – and your true friends won’t like that. Can you deal with the deceit? An incredibly revealing social entertainment show - an emotional journey - that gets to the core of trust, guilt, family – and the important things in life…
