If you're born poor it's not your fault, but if you stay poor IT IS, insists Rich House, Poor House dad | The Sun

Millionaire business trainer Mark Harvey states his controversial opinion about people with a "poor background" in Rich House, Poor House.

The Channel 5 series Rich House, Poor House, takes two families from opposite ends of the wealth divide and sees them swap homes, budgets and lives for seven days to find out how the other half lives.

In this Sunday's episode, millionaire business trainer Mark Harvey and his family swap homes and lives with Billie Thompson and mum Deb. 

Mark started out with next to nothing, working odd jobs for his builder Dad, but his ambition drew him into sales and his career rocketed.

Now he has a property portfolio worth millions and hundreds of dedicated followers flock to his training seminars.

Billie’s life could not be more opposite.
