White Van Man arrives for Channel 5

A new documentary series is to showcase the life and work of Britain’s independent tradesmen.


White Van Man is a new six part documentary series for Channel 5 which sees a selection of white van men being filmed as they look at new moneymaking opportunities via their white vans.


One of the highlights of this new show is East Londoner Jim, who drives an “old crapper” Ford Transit Van. Use to doing standard metalwork, Jim embarks on a new project – building a human-shaped cage to go in a BDSM dungeon. “I’m happy to make torture devices for anyone!” says Jim on his new project.


Another pair of white van owners look to strip off for a 2011 calendar in a new way to make money. It is hoped that this new series will be a success in the same way Eddie Stobart – Trucks and Trailers has become a ratings winner for Channel 5 on Friday evenings.


White Van Man is expected to air on Friday 5th November, exact date and time to be confirmed.
