Cheri and Dan shocked viewers of the programme - which coaches families on saving money - by telling how they spent £700 on a hot tub while struggling to scrape together a house deposit.
Ju Jitsu instructor Dan, who earns £400 a month admitted Cheri was the main breadwinner and said the pair were at “tipping point financially”.
He added: “We're struggling to save for the deposit for a house and for me to expand business wise.
“It leans toward Cheri, who leans towards buying items for the house.”
During the show other details of the pair’s outgoings emerged - including Cheri’s £50 a month on beauty care - as experts’ gave savings advice.
Cheri explained how she had spent a large amount on credit at Christmas time, buying presents for her children as well as a gazebo and a jacuzzi for the family.

Another said: Another added: “There must be people watching this who haven't got a pot to p*** in, absolutely incandescent with rage I shouldn't wonder.”
In a more comical observation @ObvzItsAndrew said: “Maybe the wife could save some money by dumping the moaning husband who earns less than her and rats her out to the TV for spending the money she earns…”
As the show continued and the pair’s finances were analysed they were told they could save £19,447 if they followed experts’ guidance.
Experts advised them they could be claim £10,000 per year in Universal Credit.
However commentators also scoffed at claims made on the show about average spends in the UK.
