Undercover Angel is a heartwarming new series that follows wealthy benefactors as they leave their comfort zones and go undercover to help people in need. But unlike other programmes where rich people do good deeds, these Undercover Angels don’t stop at handing over a cheque - although we do witness the largest ever donation made as part of a TV show. Instead, they use all of their skills, time, expertise and money, getting their hands dirty to change lives and create sustainable, lasting legacies.
Filmed over four continents, the Undercover Angels immerse themselves in both first and third world areas with profound challenges to see where their money could make a real difference. When they are ready to break cover they offer practical help as well as financial support. Over the course of the series we see an American bring clean water to an area in Uganda and a Brit help build a playground. Both physically assist with their projects. Other benefactors come from Denmark, the UK, Australia and South Africa, while countries visited include Bulgaria, Cambodia, Nepal and Sri Lanka.
As they leave their mansions and yachts behind to sleep on the street or worry where the next meal is coming from, these Undercover Angels highlight the plight of millions in need around the world - and refuse to leave until they have made a lasting difference.
