My Big Benefits Family

My Big Benefits Family

Series 1

Saturday 8pm - 9pm My5


Three generations of the Kerrigan family live in one of the most deprived parts of Sheffield and claim tens of thousands of pounds in benefits each year. Mum-of-five Rose volunteers with sister Annette at the local food bank, but neither has ever had a full-time job, while her nephew Adam is a father of four and has been on the dole for three years. Another nephew Robert is also on benefits, but insists his children won't be dressed in `cheap tacky clothes' and buys himself at least one pair of designer trainers every few weeks.
