Episode 14: Guest Family

Duration: 45 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC One WestLatest broadcast: on BBC Two HD

Ever since her best friend moved to Australia in 2009, Melissa Guest has dreamt of a new life down under. Currently working nights as a nurse while husband Chris works days selling cars, the couple are like passing ships in the night and rarely spend time together with their young daughter. Melissa's convinced their work-life balance would be better in Australia - all she needs to do now is persuade Chris it's the right move.

With a close-knit circle of friends and family on his doorstep, Chris has never wanted to live anywhere outside of Sutton Coldfield, never mind the other side of the world.

When the family spend a trial week in Perth, it proves Melissa right in her belief the country could give them more time together. But can Chris reconcile himself to the idea of leaving the place he is already proud to call home, or will Melissa be forced to give up her Australian dream once and for all? Show less
