BBC viewers were left with a bad taste in their mouths after watching the first episode of Inside Dubai: Playground Of The Rich.
People who tuned in to the BBC Two series, which follows the Middle Eastern resort's glamorous locals, expats and tourists, were disgusted with the obscene levels of excess on display and said they "switched it off".
Monday's debut episode introduced viewers to a woman with a £4milllion wardrobe, a teenage billionaire whose hobby is wrapping luxury cars, and Abu Sabah, the man who owns the world's most expensive number plate.
He is an Indian ex-pat who is just one of Dubai’s 52,000 millionaires and is thought to be worth an incredible £1.4billion.
Abu's bank balance has been accumulated through his investments and impressive property portfolio.
He is the owner of and chairperson of Property Delopment Firm Raj Sahni Group (RSG Group of Companies), which is one of the most profitable companies in the United Arab Emirates.
Abu entered the world of business at the age of 18 and admitted he grew up wealthy and that his dad was a "very rich man".
He has achieved his ultimate goal after he bought himself the world’s most expensive number plate for a cool £6.8 million.
