We already know that Terry Walker is a character. But he’s also not short of an idea or two when it comes to promoting his Bolton scrap business. First of all he decides to organise an open day to celebrate 21 years of the yard, with fairground rides and “caraoke” instead of “karaoke”. He also posts a promotional video online starring young Boyle crashing about the yard, knocking over towers of old bangers like a sort of car-Jenga. It’s the sort of thing the Top Gear lot love to do. Unfortunately, Boyle has also been racing about the local roads – with the police in hot pursuit.

But the stress of it all gets to Terry and wife Lyndsay, and they have an almighty row that ends with Terry being “bin-bagged”. Not for long though.


Things are going well between Bolton scrapyard owners the Walkers, who haven't had an argument for weeks. But when Terry decides to throw an open day to celebrate their 21 years working together, tempers start to fray - and it doesn't help when Boyle gets arrested for driving offences. As things come to a head, Terry loses his cool - threatening the big event and leaving his marriage hanging in the balance.
