Karen and Alan McDermott hoped that Australia would give them the chance not only to live a better quality of life with their children, but also to start their own business. However, after seeing the high emotional and financial price of starting a new life down under, the McDermotts faced a life-changing decision. Five years on from their trial week, we return to see whether they chose to stay in the UK or make the move for good.
