A brand new vibrant daytime series for BBC 1, which is now getting a primetime makeover. In each episode, presenter Sarah Moore saves three things from being dumped at the rubbish tip, transforms them into bespoke and valuable pieces, then returns the profit back to the people who had no idea there was cash to be made from their trash…

Whether it be a bathtub, a stepladder or a Monopoly board, Sarah has innovative ways and exciting craftsmen on hand to redesign and upcycle the unwanted items. Armed with imagination, clever tricks and a black book of accomplished carpenters, ironmongers and designers, Sarah oversees the complete transformation of objects. The series is full of takeaway information and ideas that anyone could try at home, as well as insight into the world of professional design. 

Series 5 - Episode 10

Jay Blades is sifting through the unwanted whatnots at Altrincham Recycling Centre in search of three dump diamonds that he can take, transform and turn a profit on. Upcycler Sarah Peterson's creativity is tested with a tired set of cane chairs, while robot maker Mark Haig's challenge is to come up with a new use for an old video projector. For his own project, Jay gets crafty with a collection of discarded windows, but will all three have profit-making potential?

Series 5 - Episode 2

Upcycler extraordinaire EJ Osborne is at Woking Recycling Centre, on a mission to save three tip-bound items that he can restore, rejuvenate and sell on for a profit. To help him turn trash into cash, EJ enlists the help of upcycler Sarah Peterson to give an outdated telephone cabinet a radical revamp, while woodworkers Josh and Oli are tasked with turning a tired tool box into something special. EJ has a collection of gear box parts to get creative with, but will his upcycling escapades result in a profit for the items' unsuspecting owners?

Series 5 - Episode 1

Sarah takes on a bicycle in need of some TLC, but will she succeed in turning trash into cash?
