In 2011, three billion people live in abject poverty, surviving on less than one pound and fifty pence per day. It’s a world tough for any westerner to truly understand. Until now. Four well-known personalities and supporters of Comic Relief are about to expose the harsh reality of life for more than half the world’s population.

Comedian Lenny Henry, actress Samantha Womack, TV and radio star Reggie Yates and presenter and journalist Angela Rippon agree to swap their lives of privilege and luxury for a week living and working in Kibera- reportedly Africa’s largest slum, and one of the most impoverished places on earth.
