Now here’s an ancient ‘Stobbie’ to start the day with…I wonder when this was taken? Anyroadup word reaches Biglorryblog that this Thursday (19th Feb) on ITV4 at 8:pm you can see ‘Eddie Stobart: Smart Truckers’ which I am told, via the website of The Cumberland News,”…is a TV programme that goes behind the scenes of trucking giant Eddie Stobart on national TV.The show depicts the fascinating world of high-pressure commerce as the business partners deal with a whirlwind of tough challenges…”

“What you see is what you get” says Andrew Tinkler who, I’m told, tells how he started life with a £500 van and now travels by private jet (well don’t we all?) “I started out with £500″ he tells The Cumberland News “…and everybody else out there has the same opportunity. We are normal lads who still remember where our roots are. I would still go back there tomorrow,” he says. And for what it’s worth the show is narrated by Phoenix Nights star Paddy McGuinness

Well be that as it may, nothing quite divides the readership of Biglorryblog as Steady Eddie…you either love him…or…err…you don’t. Either way for all those people who keep asking me for a full list of his trucks’ names, and whteher they can name one of the Eddie trucks after their wife/daughter/hamster the answer is I DON’T HAVE THE LIST. Indeed, the only way to get it is to join the Eddie Stobart fan club—however, here you’ll find out how.to do it…
