In each episode a millionaire takes on a secret identity and immerses themselves in a deprived area.They become part of the community, working and volunteering with locals, while they consider who they would most like to help with gifts of thousands of pounds of their own fortune.

Through their experiences the millionaires meet some extraordinary people trying to beat the odds inside deprived communities. As well as highlighting the positive financial and emotional impact of modern-day philanthropy, the series offers an insight into the social problems in modern Britain.

Slumdog Secret Millionaire is a show where Millionaire benefactors say goodbye to their luxury lifestyles and go undercover in deprived areas to find out who needs their help.
