Help! I’ve Got A High Maintenance Wife
On Thursday 24th January at 22:00 Five will air their new features show Help! I’ve Got A High Maintenance Wife. The show, produced by Whizz Kid Entertainment, provides an intriguing insight into the country’s most high maintenance wives and the outrageous behaviour that drives their husbands to despair.
The show tells the extraordinary stories of four very different women, who are all undeniably high maintenance wives.
Donna Davidson is the married mother of two whose addiction to body building is tearing her family apart. High maintenance wife Karen Armstrong lives with a bizarre phobia that leaves her permanently convinced that she’s about to die. Hayley Martin’s OCD means that she spends 20 hours a day going through domestic rituals and never makes it to bed with husband Peter. And high maintenance wife Nicola McLean is the vainest woman in Britain… and she’s proud of it.
Whizz Kid’s Controller Of Entertainment Rachel Arnold said: “‘Help! I’ve Got A High Maintenance Wife features unbelievably compelling stories of ordinary women with extraordinary lives. Shocking, laughout-loud funny, and tragic in equal measure, the show offers a real perspective to anyone who thought they had a high maintenance wife.”
The format was devised by Whizz Kid’s Head of Development Nick Johns, series produced by Katie Pierce and commissioned by Head Of Features at Five, Alex Menzies.
