The final and most challenging episode yet of 24 Hours in The Past sees six celebrities destitute and penniless in Victorian Britain. With no break since they were sacked from the potteries, they now have no food or shelter. In Victorian Britain that meant only one thing – the workhouse.
They are stripped of their belongings and their identities. Left wearing the workhouse uniforms and rough wooden shoes, the workhouse inmates are forced to work harder than they thought possible. It is a world of relentless punishment where the workhouse master deals harshly with anyone who breaks the rules.
With the men hitting rock bottom and the women refusing to share bathing water, morale is at an all-time low. Launching yet another rebellion, former minister for prisons Ann Widdecombe gets thrown into solitary confinement. The other inmates include actress Zoe Lucker, former world champion hurdler Colin Jackson, impressionist Alistair McGowan, Outnumbered actor Tyger Drew-Honey and presenter Miquita Oliver. When Colin Jackson admits that the work is too much for him, what hope do the others have!
