However, the twist comes as only one lucky pair can be in control of the card at any time. Therefore, it’s their job to  live their best life on the run, but not get caught.

Meanwhile the other pairs will be trying to hunt them down and take control of the card, which will be loaded up daily with a fresh cash injection. 

With dating, double-crossing and dashing from location to location par for the course, the contestants are prepared to do anything to ensure they won’t end up in dingy digs.

At the end of each 48-hour chase, a luxury safehouse will open and everyone will reconvene. The luxurious homes will allow viewers to see the drama and fallout of the chase as they all come together. It’s up to them to ensure that nothing throws them off their quest for the gold card.  

On the final leg of the chase, there’ll be a big twist as everyone chases the gold card one last time. 

MailOnline meets the pairs and sees how far they will go to win the summer’s biggest prize…

Guy said of the show: ‘It is surreal so far, it’s very exciting. we’ve never considered reality TV ever, money has always been a massive issue with a student loan and I waste all my money usually. We would never have gone travelling for at least five years before this.

Jamie added: ‘I suspect we won’t have the gold card all the time. We’re going to use the safe houses to our advantage, and play dumb a little bit and give out false information, like we’ll say “we’re interested in cheeseboards and wine tasting”.

‘We need to set strict rules on things, we make a strong plan, we think about what we want.’
