Skint mother-of-one baffled by wealthy heiress who splashes on £15,000 bags and £8,000 dresses

A young heiress used to splashing her parents’ cash on designer bags up to £15,000 had a rude awakening while holidaying with a struggling family. 

Simona, a 23-year-old Lithuanian heiress living off her parents’ investments in Knightsbridge, went on holiday with Tracy and Roland Sanders-Wainwright and their son Bailey in Skegness on last night’s Rich Kids, Skint Holiday on Channel 5. 

Tracy, a cleaning and dinner lady in a local school, and husband Roland, a contract administrator, saved for four months to afford a few night’s stay at a caravan park – with a daily budget of £20 for food and activities.

This budget holiday was a far cry from what Simona was used to, with the young heiress admitting to spending £1,000 a night during her usual holidays in the South of France.

The heiress added that she’d been on ten holidays so far this year and regularly splashes out on Botox injection and fillers.

Simona said she loved money and ‘wasn’t ashamed of it,’ ahead of her skint holiday. 

Looking through her closet filled with designer items, she casually said one of her beach dresses, by Chanel, cost between three and £4,000.

Looking at another designer frock, she added: ‘It’s not too expensive… £8,000.’

On a normal holiday, Simona would be relaxing on a beach with a glass of wine or champagne, before heading out to a club or a bar for the evening. 

Instead, staying with the Sanders-Wainwright, she had to get accustomed to a small caravan and home-cooked meals. 

The young heiress’s lifestyle and spending habits baffled her hosts Tracy and  Roland, who saved hard to afford their getaway.   

Tracy, who had to work extra shifts at a local pub to make ends meet, was shocked to hear that Simona spends £4,500 on rent a month. 

‘That’s insane, that’s crazy,’ said Roland.

But Tracy was further bewildered when the young heiress admitted to spending £1,000 a night on hotels during her usual holidays. 

‘We’re paying £900 for our house for the month, she’s paying £1,000 for a night in a hotel. That’s a lot of money,’ the mother-of-one said.

‘My money, pretty much at the moment covers nursery costs and then what Roland earns, that pretty much goes to anything else on top,’ she explained.  

Savvy Tracy and Roland learned to work with their tight budget, but the same cannot be said of Simona.   

‘I try to have some kind of budget in my head but I never stick to it,’ she admitted to the couple.  ‘If I find something I truly love and it costs way too much, I still have to have it.’

She then told Tracy and Roland that she’d spend an unlimited amount on bags, with her most expensive buy costing £15,000.

Tasked with the challenge to find an activity and buy dinner with only £20 in her pocket, Simona struggled to cope.   

‘Twenty pounds as a budget I think will really open her eyes,’ hopeful Tracey said.  ‘She might struggle with it but I hope when she does she’ll come to appreciate what we have to do on a day to day basis.’   

But Simona was of another opinion, and decided not to rise to the challenge, handing the camera crew the twenty pounds note. 

‘I have no idea how much things cost, I don’t look at the prices,’ she said.  ‘You don’t have to be a billionaire to know that this is s***,’ she said, digging in to a plate of fish and chips.

But, after her meal, the heiress had a change of heart, and put together a plan to find an activity for the family. 

She found a mini-golf Tracey, Roland and Bailey could enjoy together, but decided to opt out and go back to the caravan instead of accompanying them. 

The couple seemed disappointed to see the young woman snub golf in favour of warming up in the caravan. 

‘It is a shame that she’s not joining us,’ Tracy said, ‘It’s kinda made me feel a little bit flat, because I was quite looking forward to having a bit of a giggle with her.’ 

The wealthy heiress told the family she would rather not eat than not being able to afford something she’d like to buy. 

‘For me it’s so important, so I would actually rather not eat,’  she said. 

In spite of their differences, the family and Simona parted on good terms, with Roland and Tracy inviting the heiress to come another holiday with them.

Rich Kids, Skint Holiday airs on Mondays at 9pm on 5Star.
