    Great to see them finally get what they deserved. My Dad has worked hard all his life, so to end up being ripped off and losing everything was so wrong. I appreciate there were other couples, but at least some good has come out of this, thankfully! If it wasn't for programmes like this NO ONE would get any help at all and these cowboy traders wouldn't get named and shamed! Great programme.

    I watch the programme every week and shocked at the level of deception that is rife in the uk. Why doesnt the goverment not crack down harder on the people. It should be jail for all roque traders. They are well aware of what they are up to. Thank god for dom and melinda. Keep up the great work channel 5

    Steve - you wright but there is a mile long list of advertising websites in here under programme jpg, so at the end sponsors could be easy paid but c5 keeps a fortune from advertising for themselves, 10sec add £2000, 30sec £5000, 60sec £10k and there was 4 commercial breaks So do the math,

    Loved watching this programme, especially as it was my nan and grandad that recieved the help and the new home in France. To comments above, I appreciate that they were the only ones to get the new home and dreams to come true but they were also sofa hoping with family. They took out legal action and it took months for them to get a council flat. They were just as deserving as the other couples and I appreciate my grandparents were extremely lucky to recieve what they did. They are the most wonderful people and truly deserved it :D Theres so many kind words said by others above, its so nice read.

    Brilliant show, although I think the companies who help and donate should get more of a mention as they are extremely generous and they dont seem to get much publicity.

    I forgot to mention the manufacturer who helped. Cowboy Traders could not have done this without them so well done to them also.

    I guess that the couple they helped may be the ones that approached the show requesting the help. as the others appeared after the investigations. I am so happy that they helped at least one of them as its a lot more than I could ever do. My heart goes out to them all and I so hope that any wealthy people watching the show will offer the financial support they need to carry out their dreams. well done Cowboy Traders for helping as much as you could and telling the story enabling generous people to help further.

    I just want to say that, I watched this series where Dom & Melinda helped this lovely couple, it was amazing. I couldn't help but cry, I have also posted it onto Facebook, as I do with all of the series, to show others, that there are good people in this world, ready to help others. I just want to say thank you, to all of the Cowboy Traders Team, for all they do.

    What about the other families only managed to help one who helps all the other families who was ripped off. The couple who got the home had somewhere to stay in extra care other couples are sofa surfing with relatives are they not more deserving?
