FIND IT, FIX IT, FLOG IT REVIVED BY UKTV AFTER CHANNEL 4 AXED
UKTV has commissioned two new series of Find It, Fix It, Flog It (2x 10x60' series) for factual channel Yesterday, the series previously aired on Channel 4 for seven series.
The new series will be fronted by Henry Cole and Simon O’Brien, who will both return to rummage through the UK’s sheds, barns and garages exploring the unique items and personal curios buried inside.
After some creative thinking, a lot of elbow grease and expert assistance from restorer Gemma and mechanic Allen, the selected items are fixed up and sold, with the help of expert valuer Ronnie Archer Morgan, hopefully with a profit for the items’ owners.
Yesterday's channel director, Gerald Casey, said, “As a long-time admirer of Find It, Fix It, Flog It, I’m really pleased that we can bring the show to Yesterday. It’s a privilege to give Henry, Simon and the rest of the crew a home so they can continue to showcase their amazing skills and ideas when transforming things sitting in people’s sheds and garages into cash.”
Helen Nightingale, UKTV head of factual and factual entertainment, said, “To be honest, we didn’t have to work hard to find it, it definitely doesn’t need fixing, and the successful format and brilliant talent helped to easily flog the show to us...
"We are hugely excited to work with HCA Entertainment on this, so much so we’ve commissioned two series in one go.”
Hamish Rieck, executive producer at HCA Entertainment said, “We are all enormously grateful to everyone at UKTV for giving us the opportunity to make more episodes of Find It, Fix It, Flog It. We can’t wait to get started and see what amazing ideas Henry, Simon and the workshop teams have up their sleeves when it comes to breathing new life into the stuff they find tucked away in people’s sheds.”
Find It, Fix It, Flog It is in production now and will air in a peak time slot in 2024.
