Touch Productions is to make a new series on bad debt stories for Channel 5, called Can’t Pay? We’ll Take It Away!.

Set to air this spring, the four-parter uncovers stories of people with bad debt and follows some of the most experienced bailiff teams in the country. They visit flats and mansions, shops and businesses, collecting repayments if they can and repossessing cash, cars, personal possessions, pets and houses if they can’t. 

The show will feature violent confrontations, tearful debtors, liars and genuine cases of hardship. It hears from the bailiffs on how they feel about the debtors they deal with; and from the debtors themselves about how they got into the situation in the first place.

Simon Raikes, commissioning editor for factual at Channel 5 ordered the series. Malcolm Brinkworth is executive producer for Touch Productions.
