Six thousand miles from home, the group spend a month in the coastal city of Puducherry and in Rishikesh in the foothills of the Himalayas to find out if they could spend their golden years here. They’ll take over a traditional Indian homestay by the Ocean and once they’ve settled in, will immerse themselves in local life as well as explore further afield; from learning to navigate the bustling markets to mastering the unique flavours of Tamil cuisine; braving overnight trains and even learning to drive on the chaotic roads. Adjusting to the environment, the food, the customs and the climate will be a culture shock for our cast, as they leave routines and loved ones behind in the UK and adapt to living together. Will the challenges prove a step too far or will they fall in love with India and its abundance of charm, stunning scenery and welcoming people?
