HOW THE OTHER HALF LIVES

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Front Page -

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.
