Wanted Down Under, Series 8 Episode 2 of 20

Duration: 43 minutes

Single mum Tanya and her teenage son Jordan share an especially close bond. Tanya believes Australia's outdoor lifestyle could improve the quality of life for both her and her wildlife-loving son who has Asperger's syndrome. But will Australia give them what they are looking for, or will moving half way around the world be too much for Jordan?

The pair spend their week in Perth checking out the property, work and lifestyle opportunities before facing the life-changing decision of whether to stay in the UK, or leave loved ones behind and start a new life on the other side of the world.
