Celebri­ties open heart and home

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - Television - ROSIE SQUIRES

THIS is the sec­ond episode in this heart- rend­ing jour­ney for four home­less peo­ple who move in with celebrity companions in a bid to get back into so­ci­ety and find their feet.

Blur’s Alex James, chef Aldo Zilli, British tele­vi­sion and ra­dio pre­sen­ter An­neka Rice, and home makeover duo Colin McAl­lis­ter and Justin Ryan all get a deeper in­sight into their guests.

James does it tough with for­mer sol­dier Danny New­ton, and dis­cov­ers he has a hid­den tal­ent, while Zilli goes on an emo­tional trip back to Southend to visit where his charge Bobby Blun­den slept rough and tried to take his own life.

Through the reve­la­tions and heartache, the celebri­ties – who will be guided by ex­pert ad­vice in the shape of Ed Tyther­leigh, di­rec­tor of SPEAR, one of Bri­tain’s most in­no­va­tive home­less char­i­ties – learn a lot more about how they can help with the home­less­ness and des­per­a­tion faced by those less for­tu­nate than them­selves. HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS, ABC2, Wed­nes­day, 9.30pm
