The hefty windfalls have proved too much to handle for some
The real life programme, The Great British Benefits Handout which airs on Channel 5, sees three unemployed families given the huge cash lump sum after rejecting their handout payments.
And it seems the new TV stars have new issue with celebrating their massive windfall – with one participant splashing out on a dazzling diamond engagement ring.
Others also spent £14,000 on a burger van, £2,000 on new clothes in just seven days, and a whopping £61.63 on sweets in a single shopping trip.
But the hefty windfalls have proved too much to handle for some – with one family facing eviction after their landlord discovered they were no longer on benefits.
