It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about the Wheeler Dealers breakup. In fact, the last piece of information we received was from Edd’s YouTube channel where he states that he is “exhilarated with freedom” and “can’t wait to get cracking on some exciting opportunities that lie ahead”.
This all came about once Wheeler Dealers was taken over by a new production company, Velocity. Edd claimed that they thought the show was too hard to produce, especially his in-depth explanations on how to repair certain parts of vehicles – this being one of the most loved parts, and unique selling points, of the show. Edd explains in his YouTube video:
“…this new direction is not something I am comfortable with as I feel the corners I was being asked to cut compromised the quality of my work and would erode my integrity as well as that of the show, so I have come to the conclusion that my only option is to let Velocity get on with it, without me.”
The public expected there to be a strain on the relationship between Edd China and Wheeler Dealers star Mike Brewer. In reaction to this, Edd China said in his latest YouTube video:
“Is he my favourite person right now? Well, probably not, and I know for sure I’m not his. But that’s okay, we’re adults, we’ll get over ourselves. We’ll get past this, and then, we’ll be fine.”
So, everything’s fine then? Well… no. Not really.
This is a deleted tweet from Mike’s Twitter feed.
Looks like there’s a little more going on behind the cameras, doesn’t it?
Since the breakup of the Wheeler Dealers stars, Mike Brewer has been receiving a lot of hate and even threats. So I would expect him to be angry about the situation, especially as his family have become involved in these threats, too.
Wheeler Dealers will be returning in the Autumn with Mike Brewer alongside the new presenter in the team, Ant Anstead.
16 cars and 2 special episodes. Lots to do in a short time..just how I like it..???????????? https://t.co/h27zjBAkE9
