Duration: 30 minutes

Comedy series starring Will Mellor as Ollie, a man with a van.

Giving up dreams of running his own restaurant, Ollie has taken over the handyman business from his ailing dad, Tony. On his first day, Ollie quickly finds himself out of his depth, driven up the wall by his incorrigible assistant Darren and alienating every client he works for, even getting embroiled in a paternity case. In the midst of it all he runs into an old crush, Emma, and manages to make an utter fool of himself in front of her.

It's all about the little guy trying to get ahead while still trying to do the right thing, despite discovering a new kind of chaos behind the door of every new job. He can either deal with the nutters that live on our glorious isle or escape from them in his classic white Ford Transit.
