BBC1 calls new series Scrappers ‘an uplifting story of second chances’

BBC One is heading to the scrap yard with a new TV series Scrappers.

The prime-time series will be filmed in Bolton and introduce viewers to the ‘larger than life’ husband and wife team behind the North West’s biggest scrap yard.

Over six episodes, Scrappers will reveal ‘an uplifting story of second chances’ as it follows straight-talking Terry Walker and glamorous wife Lyndsay and their ‘motley crew’ of a workforce.

Viewers will see the couple ‘fall out with each other, and struggle to keep their conventionally unemployable employees on the straight and narrow’ as they run their multi-million-pound scrap empire.

Scrappers, which follows other shows such as The Call Centre and A Very British Airline, premieres on BBC One on Friday, August 8.
