Show Me the Monet, Series 1 Episode 5 of 10

Duration: 45 minutes

Series following the fortunes of amateur and professional artists from all over the United Kingdom, as they battle it out for a spot at the Show Me the Monet grand exhibition and sale at the Royal College of Art in London, where members of the public and the art world alike will bid to buy the best of the art work on show.

Contenders could stand to make some serious cash, but first they need the seal of approval from three of the art world's toughest critics. To win a spot at the exhibition and the chance to sell and make some money from their work, hopeful artists must first face the Hanging Committee, where their hopes and dreams could be made or dashed.

Amateur sculptor, Peter Gillies, services road sweeping machines for a living but secretly dreams of giving up the day job and making a living from his art. Will the judges give him the chance to sell his work at their grand exhibition in London?

And a mother of six tests out a painting she keeps with the rest of her work in the garden shed. Could it fetch a four figure sum?
