HOW THE OTHER HALF LIVES
ENGLISH actors Nigel Havers and Sally Lindsay front this voyeuristic pleasure fest of a show exploring what life is like in the upper echelon of posh hotels frequented by the rich and famous. Their innovative approach is to explore the moving and shaking that goes on downstairs to make upstairs so luxe – as well as savouring the perks of suite living. The opening episode sees the pair check into The Berkley to check out what you get for up to $36,000 a night at this London fashionista destination previously frequented by pop Wareing, hang out at their Ferrari dealership and a Burberry trench in your size hangs in the wardrobe alongside the ubiquitous fluff y robe. Just when you think it couldn’t get more spesh, there’s a monogrammed sleep mask and pillows. While Lindsay enjoys the high life, Havers is in the basement putting on his “uniform” suit and discovering the exacting standards of the valet service and the secrets to perfectly pressed trousers for guests such as Hollywood heavyweights Johnny Depp and Leonardo DiCaprio.
