Squatting in a derelict farmhouse without heating, electricity or warm water, pensioner Clwyd Davies dedicates his every waking moment to caring for the 52 untamed horses he has collected, and in some cases bred. Forgoing the most rudimentary comforts of modern living, the 68-year-old maintains an extraordinary existence; not in the remote countryside, but on a housing estate on the edge of Wrexham. No one knows who such people are and why they lead such isolated lives, and usually no one bothers to find out. For Clwyd, there is one exception: Michelle Crowther, who's 44. Channel 4's 'diverse' programming continues with a new series of Embarrassing Fat Bodies at 9.00pm and What Happens in Kavos... at 10.00pm.
