Comments about the goverment giving people on benefits their rent money to pay themselfs is spot on. The torie goverment are setting us up. People will becone homeless at a higher rate than ever in history. Its simple tories take off the poor and give to the rich, labour take off the rich and give to the poor. It a no brainer so why is england in this situation.

On Benefits: Life on the Dole Couples planning the perfect wedding on benefits, including Middlesbrough couple Ellie and John, who are young and in love but out of work. John is eager to give his fiancee the white wedding she craves - but is such a thing possible on benefits? The programme also catches up with Michelle and Steven from Plymouth, who recently celebrated their first anniversary. Both too overweight to work, they continue their attempts to diet while living off the state. Plus, the story of Joanna and Andrew from Cwmbran, who combined all their benefits with a loan to pay for their wedding, which was shown live on Channel 5 in the summer of 2015
