New TV Show: ‘Flipping Bangers’
A brand new UK car show from the creators of Wheeler Dealers, Flipping Bangers, launches this week on free-to-air TV. The programme follows petrol head friends, Will Trickett and GT Porsche photographer, Gus Gregory, as they fix and ‘flip’ neglected old cars for a profit. Having ditched their day jobs to trade in the cars that people avoid, they’re risking it all as any losses will come out of their own pockets. To cover any overheads, they must double their return on every pound invested in the vehicles they buy.
Airing on TV channel Blaze (Freeview 63, Freesat 162, Sky 565 and Virgin Media 216) on Fridays at 9pm (starting this Friday – April 6), the 10 part series will display full transformations of classic cars focusing on a different model each week, one episode includes a Porsche 924. Speaking about the show, Gus said: “People think television is fake… but everything we do on Flipping Bangers is for real. It’s our time and our money. I love making the show. It’s a departure from my ‘day job’ and it’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. Making money out of cars – especially the ones we can afford – is not easy. But it’s always enjoyable. I think I’m living the dream for many blokes who love to tinker with cars!”
Gus is a respected photographer with a passion for cars and motorbikes, having built and restored several of each in his time. He is a regular photographer for GT Porsche, and part of the current Top Gear TV crew, shooting the production’s major international features. Will is an acclaimed designer and boat builder who has already featured in numerous TV shows, including Kevin McCloud’s Man Made Home on Channel 4.
Will and Gus are bringing cars back to life in a five day mission to turn a profit.
