Sydney and Jack went into Rise and Fall to bag themselves a £100,000 prize. But, it appears that they may have found themselves a romance, too.

The Channel 4 competition series kicked off on March 19, 2023. Sixteen strangers all live in an apartment block but there’s a twist.

Half of the contestants live and work in the basement as ‘grafters’, while the other half live the high life on the top floor. The series sees the players compete in a game of power and the aim is to get from the basement to the top.
