Me and my family went on this "wilson family". It was horrible they made us out to be really laid back and steamers which we aren't but that is what happen's when your put up with the english. Would never go on it again and i wouldn't recommend it to anyone either, such a horrible experience and everything the camera crew say is lies lies and more lies, if we got the chance to go back and do it all over again we wouldn't that's for sure. Wouldn't even rate it as a 1 star cause the program is… Read Full Review

I would not have wanted to go on either holiday but the Jones family were dictators imposing their ideas on the other family, their language was appalling. It seemed to me that they thought that going to Disney was the best holiday imaginable and because the other family did not think so they were offended, they would not listen to any point of view and why object to the bandana? None of their business… Read Full Review

Is this ultimately a social experiment into what causes a conflict? To the lesser psychologist, what we have here is a show which aims to push the boundaries of the old social class system and open peoples eyes to the world around them. I feel that it does do this, but we have to be careful. It creates conflict within the two families and while this is particularly impulsive viewing and unites the family, is it the conflict which unites these terbulent relationships?
So let's go to the root… Read Full Review

Holiday Showdown could be described as a social experiment. It isn't. It is simply a case of either testing the traditional class divides in the UK or simply putting together two clans who are bound to hate each other regardless of the holiday. Moaners, stubborn types, slobs and sloths are welcome on this show.......as long as they know they are going to be paired up with polar opposites. So if you holiday in the Maldives, prepare to be whooed by a week in Whitby.
The shows premise couldn't be… Read Full Review
