So, it’s happened. We’ve done it. The Secret Millionaire has been to Refugee Action and done his stuff, and the watching public has heard a little about the struggle faced by destitute asylum seekers.
My phone never stopped ringing and beeping after the programme started, with loads of wonderful and supportive messages from colleagues, friends, family etc. Some of you liked the cross-stitch on our wall (a wedding present from a friend nearly 17 years ago), my best friend wondered idly on exactly which date we had purchased our new car! My wife was relieved the house looked decent. I must confess I was slightly disappointed that Mo, our cat, despite being filmed outside the house on the day Jahan came to visit, didn’t make it into the final cut.
