The ebullient owner of Bank of Dave, whose colourful persona has helped him win a clutch of awards for previous programmes, will star in the seven part series “How To Get Rich Quick” at the primetime of 8-30pm, and which as ever will feature his beloved home town of Burnley.

Dave, who in the past has taken on pay day loan firms, said: “It’s a new personal finance show all about getting the best deal on everything you buy. I am teaching people how to make every penny count.

“I love making television that makes a positive difference to people’s lives. I am very excited, it’s the biggest show I have done so far, as its a whopping seven part series for primetime television.

“Burnley and Pendle will feature a lot in the series whis is always a requirement of mine when I’m making television. The series will see the self-made millionaire, who made his fortune through his Colne-based minbus business, teach people the money-making skills that helped him.

The first episode sees Dave advise a council worker who wants to double her £1,000 savings by running food stalls in her spare time.

The larger-than-life character can also be seen enjoying chips and gravy in Burnley town centre chip shop Frydays.

Producers claim that Dave’s “money-making manifesto” aims to give people practical tools to make their money grow. There is also invaluable insight into world of personal finance.

Channel 4 commissioning editor for features, Vivienne Molokwu, said she was looking forward to Dave “sharing his wit and wisdom.”

The show’s co-executive producer Kurt Seywald said: “Everything we test-drive is relatable and designed to inspire the entrepreneur in all of us.”

Dave’s last television outing last year was a special one-off Channel 4 show, “Dave’s Guide to Spending”, which explored where money goes when consumers pay for goods.
