Bad Habits, Holy Orders follows a group of party girls aged 19 to 23 as they swap booze and social media for a 'spiritual journey' at the Sacred Heart Convent in Swaffham.

During their month-long stay, the five girls must give up their vices and help the Sisters of the Daughters of Divine Charity with their community outreach duties.
