The former Granada-boss-turned-TV-troubleshooter is making a Channel 4 series about turning round struggling businesses and needs three deserving cases from the industry.

Contractors with a turnover of £0.5m-£5m, and a willingness to respond to Robinson’s tough love solutions, are invited to get in touch.

‘I am interested in looking at businesses that are right now standing on the precipice and finding those that are really worth saving,’ says Robinson. Filming is scheduled for January 09.
