Episode 5: Underwood Family

Duration: 44 minutes

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

In 2015, singer Victoria Underwood was longing to move her young family to Australia so she could be living on the same continent as the older sister she idolised. When her sister Emma had emigrated eight years previously, Victoria had been utterly devastated, and the pain of living on opposite sides of the world hadn't eased with time.

Happily for Victoria, Rob agreed they could make a good life for themselves down under. So one year on, are the family living the dream on the other side of the world? Show less
