Confirmed Celebrity Guests
From the early days of Driven, crossing continents in Trading Up, exploring Battle Machines on the frontline of Afghanistan, and through to over 150 restorations on Wheeler Dealers, which is currently filming its 17th season, Mike continues to find the best cars for the best possible price. Despite hosting the world’s most-watched motoring show, Mike hasn’t forgotten his car trader roots and owns two Mike Brewer Motors dealerships, as well as constantly saving classics by adding them to his growing personal collection. Mike is also launching a brand new motoring show Wheeler Dealers Dream Cars in January 2020.
A spin-off from the popular series Salvage Hunters, Salvage Hunters: Classic Cars, was launched exclusively on Quest in 2018 and soon won a legion of fans. Featuring Drew Pritchard and Paul Cowland, the team start up a new business; they will find, buy, fix-up and sell classic cars and retro motorbikes.
Drew is well known for making sharp deals in the world of salvage. But his first love has always been cars. He claims to know more about cars than he does antiques and has always wanted to bring classic vehicles into his business.
Paul is a big character who has spent the last 20 years writing about, photographing, tuning, restoring and selling cars. If it’s fast and loud, he’s interested. His passion is tweaking 80s classics at his new Nottingham workshop.
With a nod to the name of the legendary British engineering company, the Goblin Works Garage pushes the spanner in the furthest way possible. Matching the design ‘nouse’ of engineer Jimmy De Ville, with custom car designer Helen Stanley and bike builder Ant Partridge, the trio build unique custom cars and motorbikes for their clients. Using artisan skills and contemporary design the trio re-imagine some of the best-known cars and bikes on the planet.
Jimmy, star of Discovery’s Engine Addict, is an extreme engineer, petrolhead, adventurer and soldier while lifelong car nut Helen Stanley started her designing career in fashion but now reimagines classic cars and bikes with a rock ‘n’ roll edge. Ant Partridge has built up a worldwide reputation for custom motorcycles and has an ability to ‘pick up the pieces where others can’t’ and make good. Having taken Quest by storm the show is now airing in the USA.
