WAGs, Kids And World Cup Dreams (5×60′) Follows five WAGs as they leave their pampered lives behind to experience the reality of life behind the gloss of the World Cup. Chantelle Tagoe (Emile Heskey’s partner), Ellie Darby (Matthew Upson’s partner), Elen Rivas (Frank Lampard’s former partner) and ex-girlfriends of Jermaine Pennant and Jermaine Defoe – Amii Grove and Imogen Thomas – will roll up their sleeves and work in some of the poorest and most deprived neighbourhoods in the host nation, South Africa.
They will be faced with the stark reality of the country’s orphan crisis, HIV pandemic and social breakdown, a world away from the glamorous experience the players will have throughout the event.
