Watch Holiday Hijack online: Episode 2 The Maldives

Two quality-seeking couples discover the dark side to The Maldives, one of the world's most popular romantic destinations. Twenty-eight-year-old Ali from Oxfordshire, her father Graham, and their fiances Stuart and Sally love nothing more than the exclusivity of a super-swanky resort. While both couples have travelled the world in style, they admit to having seen very little of it, choosing instead to spend their time exhausting the facilities available at their all-inclusive resorts. Nestled deep in the Indian Ocean, the Maldives is made up of 1200 tiny islands. Tourism is the country's biggest industry, with 97 resorts welcoming over 600,000 holidaymakers a year. With one hotel per island, tourists flock to the Maldives for its picture-perfect private beaches and tranquil luxury. However, this separation between the locals and the resorts often means that the true Maldivian way of life goes unseen. For one night only Ali, Graham, Stuart and Sally are booked into the Water Villas at the Reethi Beach Resort and Spa, before the tranquility of paradise is shattered as they're hijacked by local couple Zuba and Nazu, who take them to live and work on one of the many service islands that cater for the five-star resorts.
