Find It, Fix It, Flog It moves from Channel 4 to UKTV

UKTV has commissioned Find It, Fix It, Flog It for factual channel Yesterday and free streaming service, UKTV Play.

Find It, Fix It, Flog It presenter Henry Cole:

“We’ve always admired UKTV’s output, and we’re privileged to now be a part of their journey.” 

The two series, of ten episodes per run, 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.

Find It, Fix It, Flog It, which had been previously commissioned by Channel 4 for seven series, has been commissioned for UKTV by head of factual and factual entertainment Helen Nightingale, and ordered by Gerald Casey, channel director for Yesterday and Hilary Rosen, director of commissioning. The new series will be produced by HCA Entertainment. The executive producer is Hamish Rieck, with head of production Ben Tinsley, series director Matt Knight and series producer Mark Ashton. The series is an RTS Award-winner and has a loyal following of viewers who will be delighted to see new episodes of the programme being made.

Yesterday’s channel director, Gerald Casey:

“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.”

Find It, Fix It, Flog It is in production now and will air in a peak time slot in 2024 on UKTV’s free-to-air Yesterday channel and will be available on demand on UKTV Play.
