Scrappers introduces straight-talking TERRY WALKER and his glamorous wife LYNDSAY, the husband and wife team behind a multi-million pound scrap empire, who don’t always see eye-to-eye. A funny, uplifting story of second chances and loyalty is revealed as TERRY and LYNDSAY struggle to keep the motley crew they employ on the straight and narrow.
Welcome to the warm, wonderful world of Bolton’s Metro Salvage; the biggest scrap metal yard in the North West.
Following a critically acclaimed first series the BBC headed back to Bolton for a second helping of this character-driven documentary, this time on its new home, BBC Two.
“it’s comedy gold. Or should that be chrome? Or steel?”
Sunday Mirror, Notebook
“Scrappers was more comedy gold than junk metal… full of northern charm… filled with laugh-out-loud moments… The Walkers are the true heroes of this hilarious show… This programme provided heaps of enjoyment – not one for the scrapheap.”
“Bolton scrapyard king Terry Walker is a TV natural with his endearing mix of bluster and heart.”
The Daily Telegraph
“The BBC has raked over old rubbish and struck documentary gold.”
