In a media release by National Geographic, it said each new episode will feature a different heart-warming and inspiring story from owners who deserve the chance to have their treasured classic motor fully restored back to its prime condition, with parts-blagging car enthusiast Tim Shaw and master mechanic Fuzz Townshend, including ex-football legends Bryan Robson and Wes Brown, who are on hand to lend their time, energy, and moral support to a very special Car S.O.S reveal at Old Trafford football stadium.

The show’s tenth series begins with an incredible makeover of a Fiat Uno Turbo, which was once the pride and joy of Gerry who recently discovered that he was suffering from a rare form of blood cancer, leaving unable to fix-up his car. Gerry underwent several months of chemotherapy which initially helped – however sadly it was then discovered that the cancer had spread to his spine. The Car S.O.S team battled through a series of setbacks to get the car back to its former glory, and the result of all their persistence and hard work will leave even the most hardened of petrolheads amazed.

Later in the series, in what promises to be one of the most moving episodes in Car S.O.S history, we follow the story of the Howe family. Contributor Steve’s daughter Darcie was at the Ariana Grande concert at the Manchester Arena when a bomb tore through the lives of those there. Darcie survived, but her mother who had come to collect her was sadly killed. Before the tragic blast, they wanted to restore their 1963 Citroen HY Camionette into a milkshake and coffee van. However due to the circumstances, they didn’t get round to it. Car S.O.S have stepped in to make it happen. This is one of the biggest Car S.O.S reveals to date, as it took place at Old Trafford Stadium, with the help of ex-Manchester United legends Wes Brown and Bryan Robson.

The 100th episode will feature an ambitious transformation of a petrol to electric car.
