Every mom's worst nightmare: Rani Singh is a BBC reporter and former actress who found that both her sons - in their 30s - had left her for a cult known as the Lighthouse International. A BBC documentary is being released at the same time as this episode to shed light on the cult, which has been ruining the lives of countless individuals who signed up. Rani's sons have now disowned her, refused to call her mum, and are in the thrall of Paul Waugh, the head of Lighthouse International. Her sons Jairaj and Sukhraj Singh have coerced her into giving them her life savings and remortgaging the family home to pay Paul Waugh for sessions. We talk about the similarities between the cult and Tom Cruise's Scientology, and ask Jairaj and Sukhraj Singh one thing: come home to speak to your mum.
