Portraits of Joe Swash, Chris Kamara and Angela Barnes made entirely of scrapped car parts has been unveiled by TV channel, Dave and UKTV Play.

The intricate designs took over 110 hours to create and consists of parts from over five number of cars.

The artwork was specially created by a team of artists, led by leading mixed-media artist, David Badcock.

The artwork celebrates the launch of the new series of Worlds Most Dangerous Roads which airs on Dave and UKTV Play on Sunday 18th February at 8pm.

TV channel, Dave and UKTV Play, has commissioned a unique set of celebrity portraits made entirely from scrap car parts to launch new series of Worlds Most Dangerous Roads airing on Dave and UKTV Play on 18th February.

TV personality Joe Swash, football pundit Chris Kamara and comedian Angela Barnes, stars of the new series have been reimagined using tyres, steering wheels, broken lights, body metal and nuts and bolts to create the portraits.

Dave and UKTV Play commissioned artist, David Badcock, an acclaimed mixed-media artist from Brighton, to create the incredible artworks to celebrate the launch of the new series of Worlds Most Dangerous Roads.

The industrial artist dedicated over 110 hours, skilfully repurposing 150kg of used parts from five scrapped cars, incorporating over 1,000 individual nuts and bolts. By using a car bonnet as a canvas, the industrial artist masterfully crafted striking likenesses of the three TV stars, each measuring 1.2m by 1.5m.

The new series of Worlds Most Dangerous Roads will see famous comedy pairings set off on daring journeys to navigate some of the most treacherous routes around the world. The show will see a host of celebrities tackle some of the toughest roads in Sri Lanka, Guatemala, and Italy whilst they attempt to laugh in the face of danger!

Cherie Hall, Dave and UKTV Play channel manager, said,

Our three car-part portraits set the scene for our most entertaining series of Worlds Most Dangerous Roads yet. Once again, our participating celebrities will tackle the treachery and laugh in the face of danger as they get behind the wheel for some of the worlds trickiest driving challenges

David Badcock, creator of the artwork, commented:

The challenge of turning discarded car parts into celebrity portraits was a dream commission which allowed me to blend my love of art and cars and Im delighted with the final results

Angela Barnes said:

Having your likeness crafted from car parts is quite something, though its more flattering than them using the back end of a bus! Tim has managed to capture the essence of each of us using scrap car parts - thats just extraordinary! It was so much fun being part of this project, and now I cant wait for the world to see what we got up to on our adventures on the upcoming series!

Chris Kamara said:

Everyone says I am nuts, heres the proof! It was an incredible experience taking part in the new season of Worlds Most Dangerous Roads and I cant wait to watch it - some terrifying roads but what a great trip

Worlds Most Dangerous Roads on Dave and UKTV Play makes its comeback at 8pm on Sunday, February 18th.
