    Car S.O.S airs on National Geographic and fans are excited to see Tim Shaw and Fuzz Townshend take on new renovations. Celebrity guests featured in the 10-episode season include football star David Beckham and Sir Paul McCartney. Tim and Fuzz spoke exclusively to Express.co.uk about how the famous faces had risen to the challenge to help others.

    One of the nation’s favourite car restoration shows returns with a special anniversary treat.

    In the new series, fans will witness the 100th car to be made over by the pair and it was a huge task.

    There are plenty of emotional moments throughout the series, including the first episode when Tim and Fuzz meet the family of motorhead, Gerry.

    Gerry, 55, used to work for Toyota and he lived and breathed cars; his favourite being his Fiat Uno Turbo from 1989.

    Gerry had planned to restore the car to its former glory, but he fell seriously ill.

    Tim explained how he is in the final stages of cancer and his friends and family wanted to fulfil his dream more than anything.

    He said: “The truth is we were rebuilding a car for someone in the final stages of cancer and it was a rush to get the car done.

    “He’s a guy that’s a similar age to me and we got approached by his best friend and wife.

    “He was a massive football fan and a massive fan of his Uno Turbo.

    “His wife was explaining how she just wanted to see Gerry smile again, she hadn’t seen him smile like that since his diagnosis.”

    “We take care not to make things intrusive but they are being nominated by friends and family who want good things for them.

    “The cars are often a good distraction for people who are going through all kinds of stuff.

    “They can be a real boost and take people out of themselves

    “It’s a privilege to be able to get involved and to help people have good times again.”

    Car S.O.S returns to National Geographic with season 10 airing Thursdays at 8pm from March 10.
