The Unbreakables: what happened next
The Unbreakables, a ground–breaking documentary that aired on BBC One and BBC Three, closely followed the journeys of National Star students as they studied, dated and lived away from home for the first time.
The series was extensively featured in the media – including BBC Breakfast, Good Morning Britain, Radio 2 and The Telegraph – and attracted 2.5 million viewers. But what happened to its popular stars once the cameras stopped rolling?
Sasha is attending an employability programme at Taunton College and took part in the Making It Better conference in Somerset. She is looking forward to moving to Bristol after her parents re–mortgaged their home to find her a place. She is currently interviewing for flatmates and sorting out her carers.
Nathan was a guest speaker at the first Mental Wealth Festival in London. He is currently house-hunting in Gloucestershire as he has two jobs waiting for him to start, including a dream position with Gloucestershire Football Association.

She and Liam are still going strong, though it is now a long–distance relationship. Her dream is to be an actress. She was selected to attend the Official Match Ball for the opening match of the World Wheelchair Rugby Challenge in London.
