Four weeks ago, eight unemployed, lazy and ungrateful teenagers...

0:00:020:00:05

-You haven't ironed that yet.

-Jack, I've ironed it!

0:00:050:00:07

..got a big shock when their long-suffering parents

0:00:070:00:10

decided they'd had enough of their attitude...

0:00:100:00:13

You give me money so I don't have to work. That's my reality.

0:00:130:00:16

Are you taking the ...?

0:00:160:00:18

I'm ashamed of myself, really.

0:00:180:00:20

I can't do it any more.

0:00:200:00:22

..and threw them out...

0:00:220:00:24

..making them live together under one roof...

0:00:270:00:30

There's more than one of us here. We need to be considerate.

0:00:300:00:32

..to see if they can grow up and look after themselves.

0:00:320:00:36

I didn't realise how hard it was going to be for me.

0:00:360:00:39

They even made them go to work.

0:00:390:00:41

When you've finished socialising, you want to do some work?

0:00:410:00:45

Let me know when it's convenient for you.

0:00:450:00:47

You despair for humanity sometimes, seeing people like this.

0:00:470:00:50

There've been parties...

0:00:500:00:53

..drinking games...

0:00:550:00:57

..and massive arguments.

0:00:580:00:59

(BLEEP) off before I smack you in the face.

0:00:590:01:02

I think you're stuck up and horrible.

0:01:020:01:05

(BLEEP)

0:01:050:01:07

The parents have been watching,

0:01:090:01:10

and each week, they've voted out the worst-performing kids, one by one.

0:01:100:01:14

Now, there are only three left, it's the final,

0:01:140:01:17

and they face their biggest challenge yet,

0:01:170:01:20

when they each get a different house to make over in only two days.

0:01:200:01:24

What's the point? I've not even got enough money for it all. Might as well just go home.

0:01:250:01:30

I'm close to giving up.

0:01:300:01:32

They're not going to do what I tell them to do.

0:01:320:01:34

Tonight, one will win the prize of a round-the-world trip.

0:01:340:01:38

Who will go home as a fully-fledged adult?

0:01:380:01:41

And who will remain young, dumb and living off Mum?

0:01:410:01:45

Our three young, dumb finalists are...

0:01:570:02:00

19-year-old lazy layabout Tom.

0:02:000:02:03

We want to do sperm donoring. How much do you get for that?

0:02:030:02:06

Spoilt diva Ruby Jo.

0:02:060:02:08

I am sick of sitting here while you two sit on that settee and watch the rest of us

0:02:080:02:13

do something with our time.

0:02:130:02:15

And wannabe celebrity Ryan.

0:02:150:02:18

I feel gorgeous. Keep trying.

0:02:180:02:22

The three finalists have only one last task

0:02:220:02:25

to show how much they've grown up.

0:02:250:02:27

I'm trying to get this done.

0:02:270:02:28

This time, they won't be in a team.

0:02:280:02:31

They'll be alone, making over a house for three different families that need help.

0:02:310:02:35

Our life revolves around hospitals and chemo.

0:02:350:02:38

We don't have time for painting and decorating.

0:02:380:02:41

Can they put their own selfish concerns to one side

0:02:410:02:44

and make a difference to someone else's life?

0:02:440:02:47

Or will they give up and give in?

0:02:470:02:49

I can't be arsed any more.

0:02:490:02:51

For nearly four weeks, the parents have watched as their kids have struggled to overcome challenges.

0:02:540:02:59

But this week, the stakes are even higher.

0:02:590:03:02

He is a giver-upper. If it doesn't go right, he will give up.

0:03:020:03:05

She's got such a short fuse sometimes.

0:03:050:03:08

You need to be a leader, not a follower.

0:03:080:03:10

Inside Young Dumb Towers, they're discussing where they might go

0:03:100:03:15

if they win the round-the-world trip.

0:03:150:03:17

The world is my oyster.

0:03:170:03:19

I'm going to take the world by storm.

0:03:190:03:22

I might record myself doing a poo in every city.

0:03:220:03:25

I might go and see the eight wonders of the world.

0:03:250:03:28

Good luck with that cos there's only one still standing.

0:03:280:03:32

-What is it?

-Er, the Pyramid of Giza.

0:03:320:03:35

-The Taj Mahal's one.

-No, it's not one of the seven wonders of the world.

0:03:350:03:38

-Yeah, it is!

-There's only one standing.

0:03:380:03:41

-Great Wall of China.

-That's not one of them.

-Yes, it is!

-It's not.

0:03:410:03:44

-The Taj Mahal.

-That's not one of them either.

-Erm...

0:03:440:03:48

-Leaning Tower of Pisa.

-That's not one of them.

-Blackpool Lights.

0:03:480:03:52

That's not one of them.

0:03:520:03:53

Before coming into the house, Mr Know-It-All Tom struggled to get off the sofa.

0:03:550:04:00

To be honest, I'm pretty much retired at the age of 19.

0:04:010:04:04

A typical day in the life of me, watching DVDs and masturbating.

0:04:040:04:08

Spoilt and lazy, sharing with other people has been a huge challenge for him.

0:04:080:04:12

If you want to, just throw beans on each other.

0:04:120:04:15

-I thought you'd want to join in.

-Well, we do.

-Well, we don't, so you can go away.

0:04:150:04:19

This is who we are. I can't help the way I am.

0:04:190:04:23

I'm going home cos I can't live with animals.

0:04:230:04:26

And he threatened to move out.

0:04:260:04:28

But in the end, he couldn't leave his best buddy Jack.

0:04:280:04:31

See, this is bromance. This is true bromance, right here.

0:04:350:04:40

None of them have made friends like we have.

0:04:410:04:44

And there were glimmers of maturity,

0:04:440:04:46

especially when he was made head chef for one of the tasks.

0:04:460:04:49

I've got to de-crust 40 slices of bread now.

0:04:490:04:52

Right, I've got 33 to go.

0:04:520:04:54

I'm already a winner in my eyes, but I want to win this now.

0:04:540:04:57

I'm not ashamed to say it.

0:04:570:04:59

His rival for the Young Dumb crown is stroppy diva Ruby Jo.

0:04:590:05:03

She's spent her whole life demanding attention from everyone.

0:05:030:05:06

Mum! Mum! Mum!

0:05:060:05:10

My way or the tantrum way. So you can take your pick.

0:05:100:05:13

Stop acting like a spoilt brat!

0:05:130:05:14

Well, I am a spoilt brat!

0:05:140:05:16

Nothing much changed when she arrived in the house.

0:05:160:05:19

Oh, my God!

0:05:200:05:22

That's entertainment for ya.

0:05:250:05:27

At any sign of pressure, she gave up.

0:05:270:05:30

Tell me what to do. There isn't a knife. So you do it, then!

0:05:300:05:34

This is harder than cleaning the (BLEEP) out of the toilet.

0:05:340:05:37

But when she was nearly kicked out, she cleaned up her act...

0:05:370:05:41

We'll do the cleaning, and you tell us what you think it's worth.

0:05:410:05:44

..and showed she could become a proper princess.

0:05:440:05:47

This is the last push and the final hurdle, so let's just go for it.

0:05:470:05:52

And last but by no means least, it's Doncaster's own answer to Lady Gaga,

0:05:520:05:58

18-year-old dimwit Ryan.

0:05:580:06:00

-I'm not going to work.

-His full-time job was to party.

0:06:000:06:04

I get excited when people scream, cos it means exciting things are happening.

0:06:040:06:08

Mum and Dad want me to get a job, but I can't be bothered.

0:06:080:06:11

His first week in the house was emotional and tearful.

0:06:110:06:15

She makes me feel angry. I don't want to be there any more.

0:06:150:06:19

But he soon got back to his partying ways.

0:06:190:06:21

This is war.

0:06:210:06:23

And when he was sent out to work, he threw a strop.

0:06:240:06:28

I'm not going back. I'm not working for a horrible man like that.

0:06:280:06:31

But he came into his own when working with kids.

0:06:310:06:34

No! I don't like footballs!

0:06:340:06:36

-And animals.

-She's a three-year-old Collie, anyone would be lucky to have her.

0:06:360:06:40

I'm feeling like I deserve my place in the final.

0:06:400:06:43

I've worked my (BLEEP) off.

0:06:430:06:45

I'd better not say that. That sounds horrible.

0:06:450:06:47

I've worked my arse off.

0:06:470:06:49

As usual, the parents have chosen the work task for their children,

0:06:490:06:53

and because it's the final,

0:06:530:06:55

it'll test everything the Young Dumbers are supposed to have learned over the past four weeks.

0:06:550:07:01

Breaking the news is Tom's mum, Alison.

0:07:010:07:04

MOBILE PHONE

0:07:060:07:09

Hello?

0:07:120:07:13

ALL: Hi.

0:07:150:07:17

-Thank you.

-Thanks.

0:07:500:07:52

Whoa!

0:07:520:07:54

Experience of helping other people is very limited.

0:08:080:08:12

I don't have a whole lot.

0:08:120:08:13

But I do watch a lot of design programmes, and I've done art.

0:08:130:08:17

So I'm hoping that'll give me an advantage.

0:08:170:08:20

I've never been the boss of anything ever.

0:08:200:08:24

I'm too gay to be handling with DIY and stuff like that.

0:08:240:08:29

It's going to be cold today, isn't it?

0:08:340:08:36

-Nice(!)

-It's five in the morning, and they're about to leave for their home towns.

0:08:380:08:43

This'll be the first time they've worked on their own, not as a team,

0:08:430:08:47

so it's going to be their toughest challenge yet.

0:08:470:08:50

-Are you going now?

-Yeah, I'm off, so I'm just saying good luck.

0:08:500:08:54

Yeah, good luck to you as well.

0:08:540:08:56

-Have fun.

-See you on Sunday night.

0:08:560:08:58

Bye!

0:08:580:09:01

It's hard to say who might win. Everyone's got to step it up a bit.

0:09:010:09:05

Goodbye, home. Stockport, here I come.

0:09:050:09:09

I'm in the final and I might as well aim to win now,

0:09:100:09:13

so I've got to try hard and I'm going to do my best.

0:09:130:09:16

I'm up against people who I'd actually quite like to beat,

0:09:160:09:20

so I'm hoping today, I will prove that the people from Littlehampton,

0:09:200:09:25

the Little people, will be able to do a better job.

0:09:250:09:28

Whose house they're going to do up is a complete mystery,

0:09:310:09:34

and they have no idea whether they will know them or not -

0:09:340:09:37

just that it's a deserving family.

0:09:370:09:39

It's serious cos it's someone's house, where they live -

0:09:410:09:43

so there's a lot of pressure.

0:09:430:09:45

It's going to be quite emotional, I reckon. To do something nice for someone for a change.

0:09:450:09:51

I've definitely got more motivation

0:09:510:09:53

than I've ever had throughout this entire competition.

0:09:530:09:56

More motivation than I've had in my life.

0:09:560:09:59

As Tom and Ruby continue their journey, Ryan has arrived in Doncaster,

0:10:010:10:06

and it's not long before he realises

0:10:060:10:08

that it's the home of his mother's best friend Fiona.

0:10:080:10:11

Oh, I'm happy! Oh, I don't mind now.

0:10:110:10:14

I were thinking it would be someone I don't know.

0:10:140:10:18

-Hi.

-Hello!

0:10:180:10:20

-You OK?

-Yeah. You?

0:10:200:10:22

I didn't expect this at all.

0:10:240:10:26

This is my goddaughter, Sinead.

0:10:260:10:28

-Shakila. Shakila.

-Sorry, I'm thinking...

0:10:280:10:30

Oh, my God, that's very bad! Sorry. Yeah, it's Shakila.

0:10:300:10:34

So that's a good start, then(!)

0:10:340:10:36

Fiona is a single mum, and as well as looking after her own two kids,

0:10:360:10:40

she's a full-time carer for her mother.

0:10:400:10:42

She essentially spends her entire life looking after others,

0:10:420:10:46

a concept Ryan's not familiar with.

0:10:460:10:48

What would you like doing?

0:10:480:10:50

Cameron's bedroom, my bedroom, Shakila's bedroom.

0:10:500:10:54

-Gate outside.

-And tidy the front garden.

0:10:540:10:57

What are both your favourite colours for your bedrooms?

0:10:570:11:01

-Red and white.

-What colour do you want your bedroom?

-Pink.

0:11:010:11:04

-Pink?

-Pink.

-Princess room.

0:11:040:11:07

-Do you think you can do it?

-Yeah, I can do it.

0:11:070:11:10

Now I know who it's for, the pressure's like...

0:11:100:11:13

Really on. Cos you get it wrong, you're in trouble.

0:11:130:11:17

Ryan coming here and doing this for us,

0:11:170:11:20

it's not something that Ryan would normally do for anybody.

0:11:200:11:23

It's normally everybody else doing stuff for Ryan.

0:11:230:11:27

Over in Stockport, Ruby Jo is happy to be in her home town.

0:11:270:11:32

I'm well excited I'm back in Stockport. It's crazy.

0:11:320:11:35

But she has no idea whose house she'll be renovating.

0:11:350:11:38

Are we going to my cousin's house?

0:11:380:11:41

Oh, my God, it is as well!

0:11:410:11:43

(GASPS) What!

0:11:430:11:46

This is crazy.

0:11:460:11:48

Her house is a state. Oh, my God.

0:11:490:11:54

You know what? It makes it better that it's family now.

0:11:540:11:57

Cos I don't want to let my family down, so let's do it.

0:11:570:12:00

-What the hell?

-I know!

0:12:040:12:06

Your wardrobes are falling to bits, your room's a mess.

0:12:060:12:09

What are you going to do to my house?!

0:12:090:12:11

This is crazy.

0:12:110:12:13

Are we going to trust you with it?

0:12:130:12:16

Oh, God, I hope so.

0:12:160:12:17

Jess's husband Ian lost his job recently,

0:12:170:12:20

which has made life hard for them and their three children.

0:12:200:12:23

Well, since Ian was made redundant,

0:12:230:12:26

there's been, like, barely £50 a month

0:12:260:12:29

to do anything round the house.

0:12:290:12:32

That's why it's not getting done. He keeps saying he wants to move.

0:12:320:12:35

Cos it's not getting done.

0:12:350:12:37

This is the hardest thing I've ever had to do.

0:12:370:12:40

But if she puts the same effort into the house that she does into what she looks like,

0:12:400:12:45

then she'll do fine.

0:12:450:12:46

Down on the Sussex coast, Tom is about to meet the family he's assigned to help,

0:12:480:12:53

and in his case, it'll be for the first time,

0:12:530:12:56

as the parents decided there were people in the local community

0:12:560:12:59

who could benefit from Tom's help more than his immediate family.

0:12:590:13:03

Single mum Julie gave up work three years ago

0:13:030:13:06

when her daughter Kirsty was diagnosed with a brain tumour.

0:13:060:13:09

Our life revolves around hospitals and chemo,

0:13:090:13:14

and we don't have time for doing painting and decorating and stuff.

0:13:140:13:18

It's just spending time together and having fun.

0:13:180:13:22

I've got two days. Today to plan out what I'm going to do,

0:13:220:13:26

and then tomorrow I've got a team of volunteers coming.

0:13:260:13:28

How about you show me round, let me know what you think needs doing, what you'd like?

0:13:280:13:33

Kirsty's brother Aaron's room is in desperate need of freshening up.

0:13:340:13:38

Don't be worried about being too extravagant.

0:13:380:13:41

Basically, new carpet and new curtains.

0:13:410:13:43

New carpet, new curtains.

0:13:430:13:45

-This is my room, and this is my sister Jade.

-Hi.

-Hi.

0:13:450:13:49

Their room was being painted when Kirsty became ill, and it's never been finished.

0:13:490:13:53

I'd like the walls, like a purple-y, lilac-y colour.

0:13:530:13:58

Is there anything else you think I could add?

0:13:580:14:01

-Well, a little, mini television.

-Yeah.

0:14:010:14:05

I like butterflies as well.

0:14:050:14:07

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'll definitely try that.

0:14:070:14:10

Or get the stickers. Silver stickers.

0:14:100:14:13

I've done a lot of drawing and painting and stuff,

0:14:130:14:16

so I'm going to do my best with it.

0:14:160:14:18

I hope I'm not going to let you guys down.

0:14:180:14:21

Back in Doncaster, Ryan's assessing what needs to be done...

0:14:210:14:24

-So this is Shakila's bedroom.

-Yeah.

0:14:240:14:28

Um, as you can see, the floor,

0:14:280:14:31

I had to rip that up for the council to do the rewiring.

0:14:310:14:34

Obviously, we'll do something with the floor

0:14:340:14:37

We'll paint the ceiling, a few posters, princess stuff.

0:14:370:14:40

She's got some JLS posters she wants on the wall.

0:14:400:14:43

..but is distracted by a boy band.

0:14:430:14:46

JLS. You're a girl of my own heart.

0:14:460:14:48

In Stockport, Ruby Jo is getting to grips with what she needs to buy.

0:14:500:14:54

-Ha! God help me!

-Oh, it's awful.

0:14:540:14:57

I didn't realise it was this bad.

0:14:570:14:59

I've not been up here for ages.

0:14:590:15:01

No, it's not this bad. It's a blank canvas.

0:15:010:15:03

Wallpaper, a bed.

0:15:030:15:06

-And the curtains?

-You need a curtain pole and everything, don't you?

0:15:060:15:10

Have you got a wardrobe?

0:15:100:15:12

We were thinking of the runners with slidey mirror doors.

0:15:120:15:15

I'm not a millionaire, you know.

0:15:150:15:17

I've got a budget, but I'll try to get everything you need.

0:15:170:15:21

Just make sure you do a good job. Or I'll strangle you.

0:15:210:15:24

I promise I'll do a good job.

0:15:240:15:26

Normally, I just go and buy clothes and alcohol, but this is obviously more important than any of that.

0:15:260:15:32

So I'm going to try my hardest.

0:15:320:15:34

If you do mess it up, we do know where you live, so we will find you.

0:15:350:15:40

I'm hoping that doesn't happen.

0:15:400:15:42

This is about going in and doing 100 per cent.

0:15:420:15:45

Normally, I'm negative, pessimistic, but you see her,

0:15:450:15:48

and she's in a tougher situation than most people have ever been in,

0:15:480:15:52

and she's not throwing a tantrum or feeling sorry for herself.

0:15:520:15:56

She's just saying, "I've just got to keep rolling."

0:15:560:15:59

Such a big task. Looking at the house, it's like...

0:15:590:16:02

I've always said, "Look at the state of this, something needs doing."

0:16:020:16:06

I never thought I'd be the one. So, what the hell?

0:16:060:16:09

I think I need a miracle right now.

0:16:100:16:12

With only £1,000 to spend, and a massive task ahead, they need to get it right.

0:16:120:16:18

All the skills they've learned in the last four weeks

0:16:180:16:21

are now being tested in this, their final challenge.

0:16:210:16:24

(GAGS)

0:16:240:16:26

But the learning process has been far from easy.

0:16:260:16:29

They didn't like getting their hands dirty in the fish market.

0:16:290:16:32

Oh, no! Now I've broken a nail!

0:16:320:16:35

I've got a phobia. I'm walking out.

0:16:350:16:38

And struggled to entertain kids when asked to run birthday parties.

0:16:380:16:42

SCREAMING

0:16:420:16:44

I started talking, like, "Hi, is everyone OK?" and they were just, like...

0:16:440:16:49

I'm not in the mood to entertain any more.

0:16:490:16:52

They found the pressure of working as a team in the kitchen brought them to boiling point.

0:16:520:16:57

AAAARGGGGHHHH!

0:16:570:16:59

And blew the budget when they opened a restaurant.

0:17:000:17:03

-You've lost me £150.

-That's not our fault that they were tight arses.

0:17:030:17:08

It was a good evening.

0:17:090:17:11

Can they do any better on this, their biggest task,

0:17:110:17:14

or will they buckle under the pressure?

0:17:140:17:17

The first job is to shop for the materials they will need to complete the job.

0:17:170:17:21

In Doncaster, Ryan's feeling slightly worried.

0:17:210:17:24

The biggest shop I ever did were for the house when we first got there,

0:17:240:17:28

which were £450, and all we ended up getting were Twister and dog bowls.

0:17:280:17:33

So I'm not sure I'm going to afford everything here.

0:17:330:17:38

But he has a master plan.

0:17:380:17:39

I know you buy all your essential things first,

0:17:390:17:42

and then the least essential things like decorations and stuff.

0:17:420:17:46

It's bigger than Toys R Us.

0:17:460:17:47

And why do it yourself when there's someone else to do it for you?

0:17:470:17:51

Excuse me. Hiya. Right, can you tell me where I can find all that stuff?

0:17:510:17:56

Yeah, yeah, no problem. Right, your wallpaper strippers.

0:17:560:17:59

That's to take your wallpaper off.

0:17:590:18:01

-Do you want to take them?

-Oh, yeah.

0:18:030:18:06

The lady's showing me all the stuff on the list,

0:18:060:18:09

but I'm making my own decisions whether I think we need it or not.

0:18:090:18:13

-Undercoat as well.

-Is that before you put on the paint?

-Yeah.

0:18:130:18:16

I'm going to get all these, pay for them, then see how much I've got left over, then get everything else.

0:18:160:18:22

In Littlehampton, Tom also has a plan.

0:18:250:18:28

It's to drive a hard bargain.

0:18:280:18:29

I've been with my dad to DIY shops. He's a master haggler.

0:18:290:18:33

So I'm hoping some of his haggling skills will have rubbed off.

0:18:330:18:37

-£247.80 altogether, please.

-Is there any way you can do some sort of discount? I'm desperate.

0:18:370:18:43

Staff announcement. (INDISTINCT)

0:18:430:18:46

He's spent over £200. Shall I put the discount on?

0:18:480:18:52

-Yeah, absolutely.

-Yeah?

0:18:520:18:54

Result!

0:18:540:18:55

260 miles away in Stockport,

0:18:570:18:59

Ruby Jo is also trying for deals.

0:18:590:19:02

£299, that is, £299.

0:19:020:19:05

-200 quid.

-All right, £200 bed.

0:19:090:19:12

Next item needed is a carpet.

0:19:120:19:14

Are these just rugs, or are these samples?

0:19:140:19:16

Samples. Everything's available. There's also roll stock in the back.

0:19:160:19:20

Have you got, like, any cheap (BLEEP)?

0:19:200:19:25

The hallway's that kind of colour.

0:19:250:19:27

All right. What's the size of the room that you're doing?

0:19:270:19:30

It's like a hallway.

0:19:310:19:33

Er, obviously, we'd need the measurements.

0:19:330:19:36

Hmm. It seems that Ruby Jo is not the only one who's not measured up for carpets.

0:19:360:19:42

I need to buy some carpet, but I haven't got the exact measurements.

0:19:430:19:47

The hallway was probably, like, this wide.

0:19:470:19:51

And probably, like, that, probably to about...

0:19:510:19:57

Would it be more sensible to have the measurements first?

0:19:570:20:00

-Absolutely.

-I'll have to come back tomorrow morning,

0:20:000:20:03

cos I have to measure it tomorrow morning, then come back.

0:20:030:20:06

Which means, instead of running the team, Tom will be back at the shops.

0:20:060:20:11

-Do you not need me any more?

-No, cheers.

0:20:130:20:16

-All right, then.

-Thank you.

0:20:160:20:18

It'll quite fit in my car.

0:20:200:20:22

Ryan, meanwhile, has ticked off all the essentials on his list.

0:20:220:20:26

-Hot pink.

-So he's now looking for the decorative touches.

0:20:260:20:29

That would be perfect.

0:20:290:20:31

-So would I be able to have the football one and the pink one?

-Yes.

0:20:310:20:35

I'm getting things that are good and what I know they'll like.

0:20:350:20:39

Now I've got everything with the budget, which I definitely need,

0:20:390:20:43

it's the other bits and bobs now.

0:20:430:20:45

Unlike Ryan, Ruby Jo is struggling.

0:20:450:20:48

This is so hard.

0:20:480:20:49

This time, it's with her colour scheme.

0:20:490:20:51

I'm trying to figure out what colours go together cos I'm not very good at that.

0:20:510:20:56

Could I get away with that type of colour?

0:20:560:20:59

It's not an exact match, but I think it'll go.

0:20:590:21:02

Oh, me head in!

0:21:020:21:05

The stress of it all. I'm never going to be a DIY woman.

0:21:050:21:10

Cleaning, yeah, DIY, no.

0:21:110:21:13

But she's got a bigger problem.

0:21:130:21:15

I've got £580 left.

0:21:180:21:20

(BLEEP!)

0:21:220:21:24

Wait, I've got £580 and me carpet and bed is £525.

0:21:250:21:29

That leaves me with...

0:21:300:21:32

..55 quid.

0:21:340:21:35

So far, I've got paint, carpet.

0:21:360:21:39

I ain't got no pictures, no shelves.

0:21:390:21:42

I can't be arsed any more.

0:21:420:21:44

I don't want to do it.

0:21:440:21:46

What's the point when I've not even got enough money for it all?

0:21:470:21:51

I might as well just go home.

0:21:510:21:54

While Ruby Jo is cash-poor and thinking of giving up,

0:21:540:21:57

in Littlehampton, Tom's cash-rich and still doing deals.

0:21:570:22:00

How much is it for two of these and the mattresses as well?

0:22:010:22:04

-£210.98, roughly.

-For one?

-Each.

-Each?!

0:22:040:22:09

-Yeah.

-That's half my budget.

0:22:090:22:11

Is there any way I could talk to the manager and try and talk about a discount?

0:22:130:22:18

Grace, discount. Ten on the bed?

0:22:180:22:20

There you go. It's ten per cent off.

0:22:200:22:23

Right, and there's definitely no more we can do on the discount? Ten pounds off.

0:22:230:22:28

Well, no, it's ten per cent off.

0:22:280:22:31

-Um, well, I think I am going to take the beds on this one.

-OK.

0:22:320:22:35

And with time running out, Ruby Jo has not given up.

0:22:350:22:39

She's regrouped and is going to take a leaf out of Tom's book and make savings.

0:22:390:22:44

I want some picture frames cos I've come up with a really good idea,

0:22:440:22:48

to take the free wallpaper samples

0:22:480:22:50

and put it in a picture frame so it looks like a nice picture.

0:22:500:22:54

With the shops now closing, Ryan has done well and completed his list,

0:22:540:22:58

but he's struggling to pack everything.

0:22:580:23:00

MISSION IMPOSSIBLE THEME

0:23:000:23:03

Are you allowed to bend carpet?

0:23:090:23:11

A man's got to do what a man's got to do.

0:23:180:23:21

I'm well happy. I've got everything I wanted.

0:23:230:23:25

I didn't think I'd get it, because everything's so expensive,

0:23:250:23:29

and in the end it's fine, and I've still got £45 left,

0:23:290:23:32

so I'm thinking I might treat my cousin to some sweet something.

0:23:320:23:35

But for Tom, it's a different story.

0:23:350:23:38

He thought he was doing well and saving money,

0:23:380:23:41

but he's not bought half the stuff he needs.

0:23:410:23:44

I came back to the hotel tonight,

0:23:440:23:46

and realised I had a list of stuff that I hadn't bought in the day.

0:23:460:23:50

I hold my hands up, I (BLEEP) up big time.

0:23:500:23:53

He'll have to go back to the shops tomorrow, which could cost him dear.

0:23:530:23:57

It's the big day, the final task,

0:24:060:24:08

and in Doncaster, it's time for Ryan to meet the people he'll be working with.

0:24:080:24:13

I'm a little bit nervous about meeting my mentor and my team,

0:24:130:24:18

but I don't think it's properly sunk in yet.

0:24:180:24:21

Like, once I'm actually doing the tasks

0:24:210:24:24

and trying to get people to do certain things,

0:24:240:24:26

I reckon that's when it'll proper kick in.

0:24:260:24:29

And he's right to worry,

0:24:290:24:31

based on what he's done so far.

0:24:310:24:32

I get really shy when I talk in front of big groups of people.

0:24:320:24:37

-Is she obedient?

-Sorry, I don't know what that means.

0:24:370:24:40

It's named the, er...

0:24:400:24:42

It's named the Tower Bridge, cos it's next to, obviously, the Tower of London.

0:24:420:24:46

Can he pull it off this time and show some leadership skills?

0:24:460:24:50

Giving him a hand is Sean, an experienced project manager.

0:24:500:24:54

Hello, Ryan. I'm Sean. Nice to meet you.

0:24:540:24:57

Yeah, nice to meet you.

0:24:570:24:58

And it's not long before the other volunteers arrive.

0:24:580:25:02

Hi, everyone, my name's Ryan. I guess I'm the boss today.

0:25:020:25:05

But I've never done anything like this before so I'm a bit nervous.

0:25:050:25:09

Basically, there's the three bedrooms upstairs, the hallway and garden which all need doing, yeah?

0:25:090:25:14

If that rousing speech doesn't get them going, I don't know what will(!)

0:25:140:25:19

We've got a new carpet for this room

0:25:210:25:23

so we'll take all the stuff downstairs, and we can get rid of the bed.

0:25:230:25:28

-Right, so move everything down to the living room.

-Yep.

0:25:280:25:31

Thank you.

0:25:310:25:33

-Hiya.

-Hi, you must be Ruby.

0:25:370:25:39

-Yeah.

-I'm Danny, OK?

-Nice to meet you.

0:25:390:25:41

-Here's the volunteers.

-Hi.

0:25:410:25:43

In Stockport, Ruby Jo has just met her mentor Danny

0:25:430:25:46

and her team of volunteers.

0:25:460:25:48

We've got a really big task to do today cos this house is absolutely minging.

0:25:480:25:54

But already, she's come up against a problem.

0:25:540:25:57

She's not even put the toys in boxes or anything.

0:25:570:26:00

That's rich coming from a girl who stubs her fags out on the cabinet

0:26:010:26:05

and hangs her clothes on the floor.

0:26:050:26:08

Have you seen the other shoe to this?

0:26:080:26:11

Her poor sister has to share a room with her.

0:26:110:26:14

She's lazy. I have to tidy the bedroom

0:26:140:26:16

because she thinks she doesn't have to do it.

0:26:160:26:19

That's why it's such a mess.

0:26:190:26:21

She takes the piss. She could have at least put the toys in boxes.

0:26:220:26:27

And half of this stuff's going in the bin cos she doesn't need it.

0:26:270:26:30

In Littlehampton, Tom's mentor Robin is introducing him to his team.

0:26:310:26:36

They're at your beck and call.

0:26:360:26:38

This is your team. They're going to do everything you tell them and nothing you don't.

0:26:380:26:43

Right. We need to measure the floors cos we need carpet this morning.

0:26:430:26:47

We only have limited time, so we are going to have to push 100 per cent.

0:26:470:26:52

Keep rolling with this. Push yourselves extra hard.

0:26:520:26:56

No long lunch breaks, no going out for a sneaky fag, none of that.

0:26:560:27:00

We have to get this done. This is the most important thing right now. Let's roll.

0:27:000:27:04

No breaks. That's good coming from someone who's life was one big break.

0:27:040:27:08

If you got someone to push his chest in and out every day,

0:27:080:27:12

he'd be absolutely chuffed.

0:27:120:27:14

He wouldn't have to make the effort to breathe.

0:27:140:27:16

First job is measuring up for the carpet he didn't get yesterday.

0:27:160:27:20

Right, if you take that up that end,

0:27:200:27:23

and I'll bring it right up here.

0:27:230:27:25

OK, and that is saying 138.5.

0:27:260:27:31

Are you measuring in centimetres or inches?

0:27:310:27:34

That must be centimetres.

0:27:340:27:35

-138.5.

-Inches, 35.2.

0:27:350:27:38

Yeah, that... The 350, that's 350 centimetres, so that's 3.5 metres.

0:27:380:27:45

-OK.

-So if you're buying carpet by the square metre,

0:27:450:27:49

you need to take down that metre or centimetre value.

0:27:490:27:54

-Cos that's 3.5 metres, then.

-Yep, 3.5.

-OK.

0:27:540:27:58

I'm going to have to go and buy the carpet, so you are going to be left here,

0:27:580:28:04

probably for about an hour, maybe less.

0:28:040:28:06

So I'd like you guys to clear everything out of the bedrooms,

0:28:060:28:10

I'm going to put the paints I need in each room.

0:28:100:28:12

If I'm still not back, which I doubt,

0:28:120:28:14

you can start painting the rooms the colours that are appropriate.

0:28:140:28:19

After a great start in Doncaster,

0:28:190:28:22

two hours later, Ryan's team have lost momentum.

0:28:220:28:26

His shyness has got the better of him and he's not showing them what to do.

0:28:260:28:30

Ryan's not quite got coordinated properly yet. I think he needs to use his loaf a bit more.

0:28:300:28:36

It's a problem getting it done today, I'll tell you that.

0:28:360:28:39

So what's he doing? He's making tea.

0:28:390:28:42

Tea, no sugar. Tea, sugar.

0:28:420:28:44

I'm good at making tea and coffee.

0:28:440:28:46

Is this kettle even on? Don't tell me it doesn't work!

0:28:460:28:49

And struggling with that.

0:28:490:28:51

I mean, it's on or off. I don't think the kettle works.

0:28:510:28:55

-Is it on? Oh.

-KETTLE HEATS

0:28:550:28:58

Ryan is actually busy being a tea boy, when he's a project manager.

0:28:580:29:04

Although the tea's nice... He's a young lad, he's got a lot to learn.

0:29:040:29:09

But, er, where is he?

0:29:090:29:11

And he's doing what any mature adult would do. He's hiding behind the van.

0:29:120:29:17

They're all, like, fully-grown men and old men and stuff.

0:29:170:29:21

They're not going to do what I tell them to do.

0:29:210:29:24

Ryan!

0:29:240:29:26

Ryan!

0:29:270:29:28

Ryan?

0:29:300:29:31

Having spent the last hour on her favourite job, cleaning up,

0:29:310:29:35

Ruby Jo is running behind.

0:29:350:29:36

It's time to give out the jobs and get going.

0:29:360:29:39

Ohhh, right, the girls are going to do the upstairs room,

0:29:390:29:43

the front room.

0:29:430:29:45

And the boys are going to do down here.

0:29:450:29:47

I forgot which colours are for what room.

0:29:470:29:50

I can help as much as possible, but it's going to be a hard job.

0:29:500:29:54

It's going to take all day just to get her to do something.

0:29:540:29:57

But Ruby Jo is doing something. Making savings by revamping furniture.

0:29:570:30:02

I'm painting this chest of drawers to go in the kids' room,

0:30:030:30:06

cos they haven't got any storage.

0:30:060:30:08

And also, they couldn't afford to buy one, so I'm recycling this one.

0:30:080:30:13

Then I've got some football knobs for the drawer handles.

0:30:130:30:17

I just want to put a big smile on both their faces.

0:30:170:30:21

She's asked unpaid volunteer Aaron to help.

0:30:210:30:23

Ruby, problem.

0:30:230:30:26

I can't get the drawers open cos they're painted shut.

0:30:260:30:29

Well, watch out, then, and I'll get them out.

0:30:290:30:32

Aargh! If you've painted the drawers shut, that's going to be an issue.

0:30:320:30:36

-I haven't.

-BANGING

0:30:360:30:38

-There you go.

-Oh.

-There's one.

-Yeah, but what about two and three?

0:30:380:30:45

I can get a knife or something and just yank the drawers out. That will probably be better.

0:30:470:30:52

OK, I'll leave that to you, then.

0:30:520:30:54

-OK, leave it to me(!)

-Thanks.

0:30:540:30:55

(SIGHS)

0:30:570:30:59

Tell me, Ruby, just explain it to me. How many knobs do you see on this chest of drawers?

0:30:590:31:05

Ten.

0:31:050:31:07

OK, well, there's seven. There's three missing.

0:31:070:31:10

So I assume you have the other three?

0:31:100:31:13

I'm not talking like you're an idiot. I'm just trying to help.

0:31:140:31:18

I can't get the drawer open or put the door knobs on.

0:31:180:31:21

-Leave the drawer.

-OK, then, that's the way we're going.

0:31:210:31:24

Oh, dear. Looks like the stroppy old Ruby Jo may be back.

0:31:240:31:28

In Littlehampton, it seems that Tom has also got problems.

0:31:280:31:32

-What goes under the carpet?

-Underlay? OK.

0:31:330:31:37

-And how much is that?

-I'm not sure. That's per square metre as well?

0:31:370:31:42

Oof.

0:31:420:31:44

Um, could you tell me, how much is underlay per square metre?

0:31:440:31:47

Underlay is sold per pack. Every pack covers ten square metres,

0:31:470:31:51

and we do different types depending on the room.

0:31:510:31:53

OK. This is very expensive. So it's £120. I can't afford it.

0:31:530:31:58

I'm a little bit concerned.

0:31:590:32:01

Yeah. I'll be honest with you, I'm close to giving up.

0:32:010:32:04

Is there anything that you got yesterday

0:32:040:32:07

that maybe you could return and get a refund for?

0:32:070:32:13

Beds?

0:32:150:32:16

Tom has made some really good decisions today.

0:32:170:32:20

He's decided to return one of the beds,

0:32:200:32:23

which, in my opinion, is a great idea.

0:32:230:32:25

I think the cosmetic bits and bobs he's bought

0:32:250:32:28

are not as necessary as carpet and paint and the bare essentials.

0:32:280:32:34

Tom's solution to make do with the old bed has saved him money, but not time.

0:32:340:32:39

We've reached a point now where we've painted everything,

0:32:410:32:44

and all his instructions were,

0:32:440:32:46

"If I'm not here by the time you've cleared the rooms, start painting."

0:32:460:32:50

So we're way beyond that.

0:32:500:32:52

And to make matters worse, his team have finished all their jobs,

0:32:520:32:55

and are taking a long break.

0:32:550:32:57

Oh, what's going on?

0:32:570:32:59

-We've got nothing to do.

-You've got nothing to do now? Is it all painted?

0:32:590:33:03

-We've painted everything.

-We've done the rooms you suggested, which are the two bedrooms.

0:33:030:33:08

-And the hallways?

-Just have a look and see how you...

0:33:080:33:11

-Are the two hallways done?

-No.

-No.

0:33:110:33:13

I did tell... Two hallways.

0:33:130:33:15

OK, cool, well, I'll check it out now.

0:33:150:33:18

We were supposed to have painted the hallway as well.

0:33:180:33:21

-When did he say that?

-He didn't say that.

-He didn't.

0:33:210:33:24

-Apparently, when he left, he told us to paint the two rooms and hallway.

-No way.

0:33:240:33:28

And now he's got another problem.

0:33:280:33:30

-Curtains.

-Curtains.

0:33:300:33:32

I'm not sure I'm going to have time now.

0:33:320:33:35

How important do you think curtains are?

0:33:350:33:38

Um, it was one of the things they mentioned.

0:33:380:33:41

So, in your brief, if they've mentioned that,

0:33:410:33:44

that's almost a requirement, isn't it?

0:33:440:33:47

Yeah, yeah.

0:33:470:33:48

So if I was you, if it was me,...

0:33:480:33:52

-You'd be measuring them up.

-I'd be measuring them up.

0:33:520:33:55

-OK.

-Or I'd be working and get someone else to measure them.

0:33:550:33:58

OK, that's a good plan. Robin, do you want to measure up the curtains?

0:33:580:34:03

-OK, I'll measure them up for you.

-Keep it up.

0:34:030:34:05

I think he's being a bit slack, maybe.

0:34:050:34:09

Maybe send someone out to get all the bits, cos that would show initiative, wouldn't it?

0:34:090:34:14

Then he could be here going about. The hallway wasn't painted.

0:34:140:34:18

No-one knew the hallway was supposed to be painted.

0:34:180:34:21

It's nearly two in the afternoon,

0:34:210:34:23

and Ryan's stopped hiding and come out fighting.

0:34:230:34:26

He's back in control.

0:34:260:34:27

Yeah, I think it's going a lot better than what it started.

0:34:270:34:31

Everything's been moved into the mum's room,

0:34:310:34:33

and we're going to paper two walls and paint two.

0:34:330:34:36

Once we've got the carpet in the girl's room, we can move her furniture back in.

0:34:360:34:41

Um, so I think it's going well.

0:34:410:34:43

What do you think?

0:34:460:34:48

-Yeah, it's made such a difference already, hasn't it?

-Yeah.

0:34:480:34:51

I think he's being led a bit at the moment, but he'll get there. He's getting there.

0:34:510:34:56

We need shelves put up as well, but first I'm going to see where the bed goes.

0:34:560:35:01

I'm going to put the bed here to see what it looks like

0:35:010:35:04

before we decide where the shelves go.

0:35:040:35:06

Probably either on this wall or that wall.

0:35:060:35:09

Ohhhhh!

0:35:090:35:11

I'm (BLEEP) at painting.

0:35:110:35:13

-Ruby?

-Yeah?

-We've got a little problem.

-What?

0:35:130:35:16

Er, we're running out of the paint.

0:35:160:35:19

Oh! Really?

0:35:190:35:21

Yeah, so we might need more paint.

0:35:210:35:24

Um...

0:35:240:35:25

Is that just one coat that's on now?

0:35:270:35:29

It's going second coat on both.

0:35:290:35:31

We won't have enough to go all over this side and that side as well.

0:35:310:35:35

If you just cover one side. Make sure at least everything's got one coat.

0:35:350:35:41

So you don't want to buy another coat?

0:35:410:35:43

-I haven't got any money to buy another one.

-OK.

0:35:430:35:46

In Littlehampton, Tom's still out shopping, but mentor Robin is starting to get worried.

0:35:470:35:53

I'm really, really hoping he's going to come through on this

0:35:530:35:56

cos this is crunch time now.

0:35:560:35:58

If he doesn't come through, we won't make our deadline.

0:35:580:36:01

Sorry. OK, I've got all the gloss.

0:36:010:36:04

Everything down in the car, the railings for the curtains in the other room,

0:36:040:36:08

the curtains for this one, I got them measured and made sure they were right, lampshades.

0:36:080:36:13

-How long do we have?

-An hour and a half.

-I think we can do this.

0:36:130:36:17

Ruby Jo is working hard, with the deadline fast approaching.

0:36:170:36:21

Can we all, like, get a jog on now?

0:36:210:36:25

I'm sorry about yelling at you before.

0:36:250:36:28

I am deeply sorry.

0:36:280:36:30

-OK.

-Thanks.

-That's fine.

0:36:300:36:32

Sorry for swearing.

0:36:320:36:34

Normally someone like Aaron talks to me like that,

0:36:340:36:37

I would have really flipped out,

0:36:370:36:39

gone a bit psycho.

0:36:390:36:41

Cos I don't like being spoken to like that.

0:36:420:36:45

But I've got to realise, I speak to people like that.

0:36:450:36:48

And with everyone all made up,

0:36:480:36:50

it's time to check out the progress.

0:36:500:36:52

It's looking good.

0:36:520:36:55

I'm getting excited now.

0:36:550:36:57

Ruby Jo's telling us what to do. She keeps coming in, making sure we're OK, making sure she likes it.

0:36:570:37:02

With time running out, it's all hands on deck to get everything done.

0:37:050:37:10

The shelves to put up in the kids' room,

0:37:100:37:12

a few things outside to bring in,

0:37:120:37:14

and a picture needs to go up on the wall, and we're done.

0:37:140:37:17

I said the other day about possibly putting a TV in one of the bedrooms,

0:37:170:37:22

but I couldn't afford it.

0:37:220:37:23

I knew I had one at my house,

0:37:230:37:25

so I said, "Send someone to grab that, and we'll use that instead."

0:37:250:37:29

Oh! I'm getting giddy now, cos I know it's nearly done.

0:37:290:37:32

Ryan's finished first. Time for another team talk.

0:37:320:37:35

This time with new-found confidence.

0:37:350:37:38

Hiya. Thanks, everyone, so much for coming today.

0:37:380:37:41

I've appreciated it, cos obviously, I couldn't have done it myself,

0:37:410:37:45

-and it looks like a different house now, so...cheers.

-You're welcome.

-Cheers, mate.

0:37:450:37:50

Now, Ryan has been marvellous, but he's found it tough.

0:37:500:37:54

Today has been my first ever proper, proper,

0:37:540:37:59

like, what I'd call a task.

0:37:590:38:01

Like, because obviously, for Fiona and the kids,

0:38:010:38:04

I didn't want to let her down.

0:38:040:38:06

So I proper tried my hardest, you know?

0:38:060:38:10

Feeling nervous, sick, excited.

0:38:100:38:13

Will goddaughter Shakila like her room?

0:38:140:38:17

She wanted a pink palace, and that's what she's got.

0:38:170:38:21

What do you think?

0:38:230:38:25

Do you like it?

0:38:250:38:27

Look at your new bed.

0:38:270:38:29

Wow!

0:38:290:38:31

Do you like it?

0:38:310:38:33

-What do you think, Shakila?

-I feel like a princess.

0:38:330:38:36

Give us a hug.

0:38:360:38:38

Brother Cameron wanted space so he could play with his mates.

0:38:390:38:43

-Do you like it?

-Yeah.

0:38:430:38:45

-It looks massive, doesn't it?

-Yeah.

0:38:450:38:47

Hello!

0:38:480:38:49

And full-time carer Fiona just needed a room where she could relax and take time out for herself.

0:38:490:38:55

I love it.

0:38:570:38:59

I want to cry.

0:39:020:39:04

Sweat, blood and tears all day.

0:39:050:39:08

You've done a good job.

0:39:080:39:09

Thank you.

0:39:120:39:14

Mm, Mum, don't cry. Don't cry.

0:39:140:39:18

I love it.

0:39:200:39:21

It's not normally like Ryan to do things for other people.

0:39:250:39:28

It's always everybody else doing it for Ryan,

0:39:280:39:31

and the fact that he's come in, and he's done it for us means a lot.

0:39:310:39:37

I just want to thank everyone for today. You've been really, really, really good.

0:39:390:39:43

Like, I didn't think you'd be this good at doing what you do.

0:39:430:39:47

-Especially you, Dan, you've done really good on everything.

-Thanks.

0:39:470:39:51

I think it would have been absolutely pear-shaped if you weren't here.

0:39:510:39:55

You've done all right. All I can do is give you a round of applause.

0:39:550:39:59

Thank you. Thank you.

0:39:590:40:00

I'm nervous, but excited at the same time.

0:40:050:40:08

I just want them to see it.

0:40:080:40:10

Look at me. I've clearly done a bit today.

0:40:110:40:14

And it's not like me.

0:40:140:40:16

This is, like, the hardest day ever

0:40:160:40:18

that I've ever had to do anything like this.

0:40:180:40:21

-We've got a fence.

-Flipping heck, I didn't even see that.

-We've got flowers.

0:40:210:40:25

Oh, my gosh!

0:40:250:40:27

Have you seen your garden?

0:40:270:40:28

-Hello!

-Hello!

0:40:280:40:30

-Hi.

-Look, you actually look like you've been hard at work.

0:40:300:40:34

First time in your life!

0:40:340:40:37

You ready?

0:40:370:40:39

Cousin Jess was feeling down, with husband Ian out of work,

0:40:390:40:42

three kids to look after,

0:40:420:40:44

and no spare money to do anything about it.

0:40:440:40:47

-Whoa!

-Wow!

0:40:470:40:48

Flipping heck. Oh, wow.

0:40:480:40:50

-Cool!

-Oh, wow.

0:40:500:40:52

Oh, my God. It looks so... Oh, my God.

0:40:520:40:55

It actually looks like a front room. Look at the wallpaper!

0:40:550:40:58

Gorgeous, isn't it? That's brilliant, that is.

0:40:580:41:01

It's so nice.

0:41:010:41:04

Where... Where am I going?

0:41:040:41:05

Open.

0:41:050:41:07

-Wow!

-Wow!

0:41:070:41:09

-Flipping heck!

-Awesome!

0:41:090:41:12

You've got a desk now. You can sit there and do your homework or whatever.

0:41:120:41:15

-You've got a football lampshade.

-Oh, wow.

0:41:150:41:18

And look at your drawers.

0:41:180:41:20

Oh, they've given you drawers with footballs. Flipping heck!

0:41:200:41:23

-Is this a big improvement?

-Yeah!

0:41:230:41:25

-Do you want to actually live here now?

-Yeah.

-Yeah, thank you!

0:41:250:41:28

Even when Jess got to bed, it was only a mattress on the floor.

0:41:280:41:32

Oh, my gosh. Wow. Oh, my God, it actually... You got a bed!

0:41:340:41:38

No way! You've done so well.

0:41:380:41:40

I can't believe she's done so well. I'm going to cry.

0:41:400:41:43

Thank you so much. Oh, I'm so proud of you.

0:41:430:41:47

I can't believe you've done this.

0:41:470:41:49

It's a happier-looking house. It feels better.

0:41:490:41:51

It feels like a home, rather than just a house.

0:41:510:41:54

I'm really proud of myself. This is one of my biggest ever achievements.

0:41:540:41:58

And I'll be able to see it forever now.

0:41:580:42:01

Every time I come here, I'll think,

0:42:010:42:03

"Wow, I've actually done something that's good."

0:42:030:42:06

On the Sussex coast,

0:42:060:42:08

Team Tom have at last finished.

0:42:080:42:10

This has been one of the most stressful days of my life.

0:42:100:42:14

Seriously, you've done an amazing job, amazing job, so, well done.

0:42:140:42:18

-And yourself.

-And thanks.

0:42:180:42:19

Yeah, well done.

0:42:190:42:21

I'm quite proud, really, that I managed to pull this out the bag.

0:42:250:42:28

It's definitely going to be worth it

0:42:280:42:31

to see what they say when they see it.

0:42:310:42:33

My fingers are crossed that they love it.

0:42:330:42:35

Kirsty and her mum had spent so much time at hospitals,

0:42:350:42:39

they had no time to decorate their flat.

0:42:390:42:41

First stop is brother Aaron's room.

0:42:410:42:43

He wanted a proper boys' den.

0:42:430:42:45

-Gosh.

-Wow, he's going to love this!

0:42:450:42:50

Oh, you found his Spurs mirror.

0:42:500:42:52

Yeah, we found it, and I thought, better hang it up.

0:42:520:42:55

I think he'll like that a lot more

0:42:560:42:58

because it's just a more manly colour.

0:42:580:43:01

"Manly colour"!

0:43:010:43:03

So, if you just come through here, I'll show you the bathroom.

0:43:050:43:08

Wow! It's all one colour.

0:43:080:43:11

-You like that?

-And there's a bigger mirror.

0:43:120:43:15

Obviously, I saved the biggest project till last.

0:43:170:43:21

-Are you ready?

-You ready for this?

0:43:210:43:23

And Kirsty wanted the half-painted room she shared with her sister

0:43:230:43:27

transformed by bright colours and butterflies.

0:43:270:43:29

-Have you got your eyes open?

-Um...

0:43:340:43:37

Yeah.

0:43:390:43:41

-Wow.

-Wow? Nice?

0:43:420:43:45

(TEARFUL) I just wanna cry.

0:43:450:43:46

Am I allowed to cry?

0:43:460:43:48

You can cry if you want.

0:43:480:43:50

(Bless.)

0:43:510:43:53

-Mm.

-Wow.

0:43:530:43:55

-You like it?

-This is amazing.

0:43:570:44:00

It's so cool.

0:44:020:44:04

(LAUGHS) It's got a TV.

0:44:040:44:08

You've got a TV in your room. How cool's that?

0:44:080:44:10

-Wow.

-That's all right.

0:44:120:44:14

I'm glad you like it.

0:44:140:44:15

Wow.

0:44:150:44:17

Wow.

0:44:170:44:18

That's all, mostly, I can say.

0:44:180:44:21

Really picked my emotions up

0:44:210:44:25

and made me really smile inside.

0:44:250:44:28

It sounds really cheesy, but probably for one of the first times ever in my life,

0:44:280:44:33

I'm really proud of myself.

0:44:330:44:34

It's the end of an exhausting and emotional day for all the finalists.

0:44:360:44:40

Tomorrow, the parents will gather for the last time to decide who's won.

0:44:400:44:44

It's up to the parents of all eight Young Dumbers to decide the fate of the final three.

0:44:490:44:55

Who do they think has made the most effort to grow up

0:44:550:44:58

and is closest to becoming a fully-fledged adult

0:44:580:45:01

ready to fly the nest and set off on a round-the-world trip?

0:45:010:45:04

First up to be judged is Ryan.

0:45:040:45:07

Tea, no sugar, tea, sugar.

0:45:070:45:09

He ran away and made tea when he should have been working.

0:45:090:45:12

Don't tell me it doesn't work.

0:45:120:45:14

He's a young lad, you know, he's got a lot to learn.

0:45:140:45:17

But, er, where is he?

0:45:200:45:22

But he did man up and take control.

0:45:220:45:24

Everything's been moved into the mum's room,

0:45:240:45:27

and we're going to wallpaper two walls and paint two.

0:45:270:45:30

Then shelves on that side.

0:45:300:45:32

I think he did really well.

0:45:320:45:34

He certainly has improved,

0:45:340:45:35

when he was always shying away from work.

0:45:350:45:38

And I think he was proud of himself for getting it done.

0:45:380:45:41

Had a good attitude to the job.

0:45:410:45:43

He wanted to get it done,

0:45:430:45:45

and he made a comment that he wanted to make you proud.

0:45:450:45:48

But we're trying to see that they're growing up,

0:45:480:45:51

becoming young adults and taking responsibility.

0:45:510:45:54

This was a big job, and he had to be the leader.

0:45:540:45:57

And obviously, he's pulled it off in the end, you know?

0:45:570:46:01

I'm just proud, that's it.

0:46:010:46:03

Next up is stroppy Ruby Jo,

0:46:060:46:08

who had a meltdown when she didn't have enough money.

0:46:080:46:11

I ain't got no pictures, no shelves, and I've got no money left.

0:46:110:46:15

But she made savings and made a comeback.

0:46:150:46:18

Take the free wallpaper samples, put it in a picture frame, like a nice picture.

0:46:180:46:23

I think at the start, I thought, "Is she going to give up?"

0:46:230:46:26

But, no, she got stuck into it and she did really well.

0:46:260:46:30

That bit where she said she was giving up,

0:46:300:46:33

I was thinking, "Please don't give up now."

0:46:330:46:35

There's still that element of her where she has to go off.

0:46:350:46:39

It's like her tantrummy moments, isn't it?

0:46:390:46:41

She's actually challenging that side of herself that she doesn't like,

0:46:410:46:45

and I do think she has matured a lot in there.

0:46:450:46:50

Finally, it's Tom.

0:46:500:46:51

He started off well, stretching his budget by becoming a master haggler.

0:46:510:46:55

Is there any way you could do some sort of discount?

0:46:550:46:59

Then he struggled with his planning,

0:47:000:47:03

and wasn't around enough to run the team.

0:47:030:47:05

What's going on?

0:47:070:47:08

-We've painted everything.

-Really?

0:47:080:47:10

-Are the two hallways done?

-No.

0:47:100:47:12

I did tell... Two hallways.

0:47:120:47:15

-He didn't say that.

-He didn't say that.

0:47:150:47:17

Apparently he did tell us to paint two rooms and the hallway.

0:47:170:47:20

-In the end, he pulled it off.

-This is amazing.

0:47:200:47:23

-Wow.

-That's all right.

0:47:250:47:26

I'm glad you like it.

0:47:260:47:28

A four-hour disappearance on a job for a guv'nor

0:47:290:47:32

would be not the right thing to do.

0:47:320:47:35

I take your point, cos he did disappear for some quite long periods of time.

0:47:350:47:40

I think he took project management to the absolute extreme.

0:47:400:47:45

It started falling apart halfway through,

0:47:450:47:47

and you start feeling nervous that he's going to give up,

0:47:470:47:50

but then it pulled together towards the end.

0:47:500:47:53

He was touched about that family.

0:47:530:47:55

When he saw the girl's face,

0:47:550:47:57

you could tell he felt a real sense of achievement.

0:47:570:48:02

But it's not just about the work challenge.

0:48:040:48:07

It's about attitude and changing for the better.

0:48:070:48:09

So, earlier in the week, Ruby Jo, Ryan and Tom all wrote letters to their parents,

0:48:090:48:14

explaining how far they've come.

0:48:140:48:16

This is the finalists' last chance to sway the vote.

0:48:160:48:20

I feel like I could have wrote a whole book

0:48:200:48:22

because I've got so much to apologise for.

0:48:220:48:25

I feel so bad.

0:48:260:48:28

I've never actually had this much time to think about things.

0:48:280:48:32

I've been a nightmare, literally.

0:48:320:48:34

And I was that, like, selfish, I didn't even care about it.

0:48:340:48:37

My mum's been waiting her whole life for this day when I finally grow up,

0:48:370:48:42

and I think I'm ready now.

0:48:420:48:43

To just kind of say what I've learned over this experience,

0:48:490:48:52

what I was like before, what's happened,

0:48:520:48:54

what I'm going to be like afterwards.

0:48:540:48:57

No, I don't really talk to my mum about things like this and the outside world.

0:48:570:49:01

But that's normally cos I can't be bothered.

0:49:010:49:04

This whole experience has just been life-changing.

0:49:080:49:11

It's made me see things from a completely different angle.

0:49:110:49:15

The things you take for granted,

0:49:150:49:17

when you've not got them, you really miss them.

0:49:170:49:19

So it's made me realise all the stuff my mum does for me,

0:49:190:49:23

working her arse off to give me and my sister the best things we can get.

0:49:230:49:27

I never say sorry normally.

0:49:270:49:30

This time, I genuinely mean it.

0:49:300:49:32

Ryan's mum Natasha is the first to read her letter.

0:49:350:49:38

"To the best mum in the world,

0:49:380:49:40

I would just like to start by saying sorry.

0:49:400:49:42

"You do so much for me,

0:49:420:49:46

"and all that I do is take, take, take.

0:49:460:49:49

"I know you are disappointed.

0:49:490:49:51

"But it's been surprising how much I have learned,

0:49:530:49:56

"and I hope you have seen that I have grown up.

0:49:560:49:58

"That was my aim, to make you proud of me.

0:49:580:50:01

"I love you so much. The best new son in the world."

0:50:030:50:08

It's just so sweet, the fact that he said he appreciates you so much

0:50:110:50:15

and he's realised what you do for him.

0:50:150:50:17

You know, I was concentrating on the negatives instead of the positives.

0:50:170:50:22

So I've took a lot away from this as well.

0:50:220:50:25

Next up, Tom's letter for mum, Alison.

0:50:260:50:29

"Dear Mum, before this experience, I know I was bloody lazy.

0:50:290:50:33

"I had an extremely negative outlook on the world,

0:50:330:50:36

"but since coming into this, I know that wasn't necessary,

0:50:360:50:40

"or a wise or mature way to act.

0:50:400:50:43

"When I get home, I want to turn things around.

0:50:430:50:46

"I appreciate everything you and Dad have ever done for me,

0:50:460:50:49

"but a change is definitely needed, and I'd actually like to move out.

0:50:490:50:54

"This experience has proved that I'm capable of being responsible,

0:50:540:50:58

"and I hope that I've made you and Dad proud of me. Tom"

0:50:580:51:03

He's moving out. Yes!

0:51:040:51:07

How will you feel if he does move out?

0:51:070:51:10

Well, do you know, Sarah, I'd probably be absolutely gutted.

0:51:100:51:14

And finally, Ruby Jo's mum Joanne reads her letter.

0:51:140:51:18

"I know that this was my final chance to change

0:51:180:51:20

"cos you couldn't handle me living with you any more.

0:51:200:51:24

"I believe I have grown up so much,

0:51:240:51:26

"and I think that it's time

0:51:260:51:27

"to let selfish, nasty and horrible Ruby Jo go

0:51:270:51:31

"because I don't want to be

0:51:310:51:33

"that person any more.

0:51:330:51:34

"The way I've been acting has caused me to lose friends,

0:51:370:51:40

"and even lose a relationship with you.

0:51:400:51:43

"We are going to be so much happier from now on, I promise.

0:51:430:51:46

"Can't wait to get home and see you.

0:51:460:51:49

"Love you so much. From Ruby Jo."

0:51:490:51:52

You know, she says in here

0:51:530:51:55

it's time to let the selfish, horrible and nasty Ruby Jo go,

0:51:550:51:59

and I think it's been so nice to see the nice side of her on here,

0:51:590:52:03

cos I knew it was there.

0:52:030:52:06

I thought all three letters were touching. Heartfelt things said.

0:52:060:52:10

But having seen the improvements they've all made of themselves,

0:52:100:52:14

you should all be proud.

0:52:140:52:15

It's been an emotional session for the parents,

0:52:150:52:18

but it's time for them to decide on a winner.

0:52:180:52:22

I think they all deserve to win.

0:52:220:52:24

It is really, really hard.

0:52:240:52:25

Back at the house, Ryan, Ruby Jo and Tom are all coming to the end of their journey.

0:52:290:52:34

The best thing has been the fact that I know I've changed.

0:52:340:52:37

I feel a zillion times more grown-up.

0:52:370:52:40

There's so much more to life than doing (BLEEP) all.

0:52:400:52:44

I've learned a lot about myself over this period.

0:52:460:52:49

If you really want something, if you really put in effort,

0:52:490:52:53

then you can get it.

0:52:530:52:55

Before, I could never be bothered to put effort into anything.

0:52:550:52:59

The parents have arrived to reveal

0:53:010:53:03

who will be going on that round-the-world trip.

0:53:030:53:06

-Hi!

-Hello.

0:53:060:53:08

Hi.

0:53:080:53:09

Hi.

0:53:090:53:11

-Hi.

-Hello.

0:53:110:53:12

Oh, I'm nervous.

0:53:120:53:15

-Yeah.

-You've had a few moments where, and I'm going to mention him, Jack. You and Jack.

-Yeah.

0:53:170:53:23

The last few weeks, I think if you'd have not been with Jack,

0:53:230:53:26

-you'd have pushed yourself further.

-Yeah.

0:53:260:53:29

But we've all still seen something in you, and this is why you got to the last three.

0:53:290:53:34

Ruby, you've done incredibly.

0:53:340:53:37

Um, we've all watched you from day one,

0:53:370:53:39

we've gone through some dramas with you.

0:53:390:53:42

You've pulled it so together, right at the end, Ruby,

0:53:420:53:46

and it's been a real joy to watch.

0:53:460:53:49

Ryan, we could see that you didn't have a lot of confidence at first,

0:53:490:53:56

um, but as the days have gone by and you've done more tasks

0:53:560:53:59

and more job placements,

0:53:590:54:02

you've sort of shone through.

0:54:020:54:04

We're really proud of all of you.

0:54:050:54:08

But the winner is...

0:54:080:54:09

..Ryan.

0:54:170:54:18

Oh, well done.

0:54:250:54:27

Well done, son.

0:54:300:54:32

-Oh, have a good time.

-Thank you.

0:54:320:54:34

It's been a massive journey for Ryan.

0:54:340:54:37

From the party animal who didn't want to work...

0:54:370:54:40

I'm not going back. I'm not working for a horrible man like that.

0:54:400:54:44

..to the responsible and sensitive adult

0:54:440:54:46

who cares about how other people feel.

0:54:460:54:49

Any good pirates? I'm a good pirate.

0:54:490:54:52

It scares me, but I think we might be growing consciences.

0:54:520:54:56

-See you.

-Bye, Ryan.

0:54:560:54:57

You've done so well.

0:54:570:54:59

And even as he leaves the house, he can't believe what's just happened.

0:54:590:55:03

I think it's not actually set in, like, hit me yet, that I've won.

0:55:030:55:07

That's why I said to you in the house, "Smile, you've won."

0:55:070:55:11

Both Ruby Jo and Tom feel that although they didn't win,

0:55:110:55:14

they have gained from the experience.

0:55:140:55:16

I'm definitely not going to be the same way when I get home.

0:55:160:55:20

I definitely am going to change.

0:55:200:55:22

When we get home, I don't want to argue any more.

0:55:220:55:25

Ryan's ready to make some big changes.

0:55:250:55:28

Well, I'm going to get a job, definitely,

0:55:280:55:31

because I just don't want to be sat around any more.

0:55:310:55:34

-And in the house, I'm going to help you out ten times more.

-I hope so.

0:55:340:55:38

Yeah.

0:55:380:55:40

Ahh, proud of you, son.

0:55:400:55:42

Thank you.

0:55:420:55:44

Watch out, world. Here comes Ryan.

0:55:440:55:46

# Like we're dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb

0:55:460:55:50

# Our bodies going numb, numb, numb, numb, numb, numb

0:55:500:55:53

# We'll be forever young, young, young, young, young, young

# It's about damn time to live it up

0:56:030:56:06

# I'm so sick of being so serious

0:56:060:56:08

# It's making my brain delirious

0:56:080:56:10

# I'm just talking true

0:56:100:56:11

# I'm telling you about the shit we do

0:56:110:56:13

# We're selling our clothes

0:56:130:56:15

# Sleeping in cars, dressing it down
