I got into this industry for the glamour so with this in mind I agreed to spend the second half of 2015 in a dusty and freezing cold workshop in Bootle.
It was for a show that’s coming to Channel 4 soon called Find it, Fix it, Flog it. Directing and filming the restoration and upcycling of anything from a 100 year old pheasant egg incubator covered in a lovely intoxicating mixture of rat and bird droppings (again, glamour) to a lifeboat found under a pile of nettles.
Loved working on this series although I fear with the skills I picked up I may now have to leave TV to follow my dream travelling the country restoring egg incubators.
If they also happen to be covered in decades of animal waste, so be it.
