SECRET Spenders viewers were left open-mouthed after a couple revealed the staggering cost of a family day out.
Il Canale 4 show saw couple Kerrie and Ian Fitzgibbon keen to find a way to save money so they could convert their loft into a bedroom for their daughter.
The extension would cost around £35,000 but their annual income currently sat at £39,000 after Kerrie lost her job in the pandemic.
Prima di ciò, their combined earnings would have been double that, but now they only had Ian’s wage as an IT engineer to live off.
Despite suddenly becoming a one-income household, the pair had continued to spend like they always had, and Ian in particular harboured some expensive hobbies.
Kerrie said: “He’s a bit of a shopaholic. He’s got his interests but they are expensive interests.

“He still wants to get nice things as if we’re both earning but we’re not. I want to be able to save money.”
As well as collecting vinyl records, Ian also had a keen interest in train memorabilia and regularly bought items at auctions.
But it was the cost of going to a local transport museum that really shocked Kerrie, the show’s experts and viewers.
Finance expert Peter Komolafe revealed they had bought a VIP ticket membership which cost £2,000 a year.

Kerrie said: “If I had known that would’ve been cancelled a long time ago!”
Prendendo su Twitter, a viewer said: “What transport museum costs 2k a year?! #secretspenders.”
Un altro ha aggiunto: “#SecretSpenders What kind of idiot has a £2,000 a year membership to a “Transport Museum” and doesn’t know it? But making him sell his @kylieminogue albums is a bit harsh.”
Un terzo ha twittato: “I know these are extreme cases, but good grief #SecretSpenders.”
