What's on TV - - TV Week -

Fol­low­ing their se­ries How the Other Half Live, where they learnt what it’s re­ally like to be su­per rich, Ea­monn Holmes and Ruth Langs­ford are in Las Ve­gas wit­ness­ing the out­ra­geous life­styles peo­ple have there – and it’s a real eye-opener!

‘It’s like a play­ground for the rich, like a Dis­ney­land for adults,’ says

Ruth. ‘If you’ve got money, you can get any­thing you like.’

The two-part spe­cial fol­lows the mar­ried pre­sen­ters as they have a flut­ter in the iconic casi­nos and visit flash apart­ments – some of them even have their own bas­ket­ball courts.

‘They have an un­der­ground car park and the lift takes them right up to these in­cred­i­ble apart­ments the size of foot­ball pitches,’ says Ruth.

‘They say there are big stars who stay there and no­body even knows they’re in town be­cause they don’t need to leave the apart­ment.’

‘It’s ex­tra­or­di­nary be­cause the ex­tra­or­di­nary be­comes the or­di­nary,’ adds Ea­monn. ‘Sud­denly you re­alise ev­ery­thing is gold-plated and the ser­vice is seven-star, and the limos are big­ger than any­thing you’ve seen be­fore. It be­comes the norm.’

Ea­monn’s high­light was choos­ing mu­sic for the Bel­la­gio foun­tains – a priv­i­lege that costs $250,000.

‘I chose Viva Las Ve­gas and I got to press the but­tons. That was a big thrill,’ he says.

But would the pair re­ally like the lifestyle of the su­per-rich?

‘I’d give it a go,’ laughs Ruth. ‘My one in­dul­gence would be a pri­vate jet. It’s got to be the ul­ti­mate lux­ury!’
