In 1961 housewife Viv Nicholson won £152,319 in the football pools. When a reporter asked her what she planned to do with her new fortune, she replied, "I'm going to spend, spend, spend!" which is exactly what she did.
Her rags-to-riches-to-rags-again story takes her through five husbands, expensive sports cars, fur coats, and jewellery, a battle with alcohol and bankruptcy.
Based on the book by Viv Nicholson & Stephen Smith. Music by Steve Brown.
