The hugely popular RTÉ 1 series Secret Millionaire will feature an Irish born millionaire Nadim Sadek who resides on a private island off the coast of Mayo.
In the final episode of this three-part series Nadim will swap his paradise island for a small house in one of the poorest areas of inner city Cork. For eight days he will live alone and for the first time in his life he will try and fend for himself on the minimum wage.
Nadim will go undercover in the community, secretly working side by side with the people he might just be able to help. At the end of his stay, he'll give away thousands of euro of his own money and only then reveal himself as the Secret Millionaire.
Nadim Sadek was born in Ireland to an Egyptian father and an Irish mother. His career has taken him all over the world. He has made a small fortune from marketing and developing strategies for some of the world's biggest brands. Now he lives on his private island, Inish Turk Beg in Clew Bay off the coast of Mayo. The island itself has become Nadim's latest brand. As well as offering hospitality, he produces single-malt Irish whiskey, music from The Inishturkbeggers and art exhibitions. But it's the music that's most important to Nadim.
This love of music leads him to search specifically for charitable projects in Cork that use music to help the people in disadvantaged communities. Along the way he encounters other charities that challenge his own personal views of charity, religion and giving in general. The personal transformation for Nadim is significant and immensely rewarding, not just for him but for the people he meets too.
The programme will air on RTÉ 1, Monday, October 3 at 9.35pm.
