SCRAPHEAP CHALLENGE: REBOOT OF CLASSIC SERIES TO BE PILOTED

Scrapheap Challenge, the Channel 4 series which ran for 12 years from 1998 until 2010, is set to be piloted for a potential reboot.



In Scrapheap Challenge, teams compete each week to construct a junk machine, using only what they can scavenge from the scrapheap. Every series builds to a final contest - and the crowning of a champion team.


Former host Robert Llewellyn has revealed (via Tellymix) that a reboot is in development, with the working title 'Zapheap Challenge', which would this time focus on electric vehicles and creations.



Robert said:"It’s just starting to rebrew and there’s some really interesting people I’m talking to. It won’t happen this year but maybe next year. It’s really expensive to make. Scripted reality, Married At First Sight, Big Brother, and that, is cheap to make. To make Scrapheap in the old days we had a crew of over 60 people, we had six cameras running all the time on each team."



Selected episodes of Scrapheap Challenge are available to stream on Channel 4.
