Eight celebrities embark on an experimental adventure to India, to see whether they can set up a more rewarding life than in the UK. Enterpreneur Duncan Bannatyne, designer Zandra Rhodes, comedian Paul `Chuckle" Elliott, cricket legend Henry Blofeld, former EastEnder John Altman, actresses Britt Ekland and Susie Blake and singer Barbara Dickson arrive at their new home by the sea in Puducherry, and while Britt struggles with the heat and Paul misses his missus, Susie, Barbara and Zandra bond over a bit of traditional Indian cooking.
