Maybe it’s because I live in Teesside, one of the poorest areas in the country, but simply hearing about programmes like this infuriates me.

When you hear about people buying a gold-plated bike costing £250,000 or a watch worth $1million, it does tick you off when you think of so many other who can’t afford the basics. That’s even before we get to the person who has commissioned a £40,000 ball gown… for their dog.

The World’s Most Expensive Presents is on Channel 4 on 21.00.
