Mike Brewer – Motoring Expert, Broadcaster and Awards Host.
Former Car trader Mike Brewer has spent most of his 40 years selling thousands of motor vehicles and is perhaps best known as the star of Discovery’s ‘Wheeler Dealers, Channel 4’s second-hand car show ‘Deals On Wheels’ and the top-rated motoring programme ‘Driven’.
The baby of six, Mike Brewer had a South London upbringing and eventually the family settled down in Surrey where, during school holidays, you could hear Mike shouting selling fruit ‘n’ veg on a stall.
Mike got into the motor trade in his late teens and quickly built a reputation for being sharp and honest. Mike set up and ran the biggest 4×4 centre in the south of England importing cars from around the globe.
Mike embarked on his television career through pure luck. He answered a friend’s telephone and discovered he was talking to a television producer. A long chat and a few anecdotes ensued and he was hired for the first series of ‘Deals On Wheels’. His success in this role led him into the presenter’s position on ‘Driven’.
Mike Brewer has presented several specials including ‘Driven at Le Mans’, ‘The British Rally Championships’ for Ch 4 Sports and Sky Sports, at all the meetings.
Other programmes Mike has presented include:
- Wrecks to Riches – ITV
- Revved Up – ITV
- Wheeler Dealers – Discovery Channel
- Pulling Power – ITV
