LOVEABLE rogue Lewis O’Boyle and his work pals at Metro Salvage have won the hearts of the nation.

They are the stars of Scrappers, which charts the trials, tribulations — and fun — of working at the Bolton scrapyard.

There are just two episodes remaining of the six-part BBC documentary, which has transformed the lads (and lasses) at the Waterloo Street business into household names.

And one of the most endearing tales has been that of 19-year-old Lewis, who left Little Lever School aged just 14 and was taken under the wing of the yard’s owner Terry Walker.

Since the programme first aired earlier this month, fans have been calling in to have their photographs taken with its stars and visit the on-site cafe.

Lewis, who works in car sales with Terry’s son, Jon, said: “I’ve had people in from Devon, some from New Zealand came to have their pictures taken with me.

“The top yard phoned down and said, you’ve got 15 fans in the cafe.

“I didn’t come out at first.”

Viewers have already seen the former Bowness Primary School pupil’s ups and downs, including passing his crane test to operate Gloria the Grab followed by a brush with the law after being arrested for driving offences.

Asked where he would be if Terry had not given him a number of chances, he said: “I don’t know, I’d probably be in jail or something.

“He’s all right. He’s been like a dad to me.”

Every Friday, Lewis and his pals gather round to watch the episodes unfold, which also feature yard workers including Mark Cox, Lee Tuff, David Lockett and Chris Fletcher.

Lewis, who lives in Little Lever, said: “It’s funny. We have a laugh. When we watch it, we have a drink and laugh at each other.

“It’s strange, when you’re watching yourself, you don’t think that you do stuff like that.

“You’re like, I didn’t do that.”

Speaking of being involved in the show and people’s reactions, Lewis chuckles: “It’s been all right, I’ve enjoyed it. Famous now aren’t I?

“I’ve got loads of likes on Facebook and stuff like that, loads of friend requests. I’m still getting a lot now.

“I knew I’d get some but I didn’t think it would be as much as it was.

“People think it’s good. Everyone is inboxing me saying I love the show and all that. It’s not even my programme.”

Looking to the future and Lewis would like to appear on a certain reality show, as the latest celebrity version features White Dee, real name Deirdre Kelly, from Channel 4’s Benefits Street.

He said: “I want to go on Big Brother. Everybody wants me in it, they’ve all been saying, why’s she in it? Put Boyle in off Scrappers.

“I’d be the naughty one, wouldn’t I?”

But for now, Lewis is happy earning a living at the scrap yard and car breakers after first landing a job there five years ago.

He said: “I just never went to school, I didn’t like it. I would rather do this.

“Just everything, doing all different things really. I’ll do anything.

“All my mates are here aren’t they and stuff like that.”

Over in the cafe and there is always a chip butty and sympathetic ear on offer from Debs Guffogg, from Bolton who now lives in Wigan.

The 54-year-old, who runs the eaterie and works there with sister Michelle Humphreys, has seen an increase in visitors to the cafe, which is open to the public, since Scrappers began.

She said: “People are coming in asking for photos, it feels good.

“I feel really proud.

“They do come in to see us because they have seen us on the television, they’re coming from all over.

“It’s nice.

“I think the show’s quite good because that’s how it is, there’s nothing false about it.”

Terry and his team at Metro Salvage are no strangers to cameras.

Before the BBC filmed the documentary series the team regularly posted videos to YouTube, which is where Terry’s wife, Lyndsay, believes it “all started from”.

Tonight’s episode see boss Terry Walker face up to some tough decisions regarding Boyle and Chris, the two employees who were sacked while he was on holiday in Tenerife with his wife Lyndsay.

Little Dave and Lyndsay both agree that the pair have been given enough chances, and when Boyle informs Terry that he does not need his support in court for his driving offences trial, the scrapyard owner begins to accept that it is time his former protege waved goodbye to the business for good.

  • Scrappers is on BBC One tonight at 8.30pm.

What an inspirational story.......

Yes kids, don't bother trying hard at school, so long as you can pull off the "cheeky chappy" act, you too can leave at 14 with little or no literacy skills, have numerous brushes with the law over the next few years, stumble into a job which involves sweeping a yard and smashing up cars and then one day, get spotted on a TV show and then move on to a life of celebrity!

Big Brother awaits and you will have more Facebook friends than you can shake a stick at!

You won't know this because you can't read, but hey....that's not important - you're famous!

You all need to lighten up.... the show is brilliant!! We see lots of programmes on the emergency services, this is something different. We should be supporting them!

They might not be well educated but they all have awesome personalities and are earning an honest living!! Its not like they are scrounging off the government/ tax payers. They pay their way and do a job that they enjoy and love!

Your all very quick to judge but these people might not have had the best starts in life and luxuries that you may have had! I think Terry seems an amazing chap for giving these lads a second chance!!

lets get real
anybody who runs a scrap yard is probably dodgy
and anybody who works in a scrap yard could be dodgy
but if you do not go to school to learn and leave at 14 then there is a chance you will be dodgy
there are lots of people in Bolton who are highly educated that got no mention at all (i.e. the ones that left school with qualifications and worked hard to get them)

Your poor spelling, absence of punctuation and non-use of capital letters would definitely suggest so.

How many Facebook friends have you got?

Sir, the issue is not if someone is maybe not as intelligent as others or "a bit thick". The issue is this lad is a little sh*t. The type to abuse a teacher! Totally unteachable! No one is saying all people in jobs similar to this doesn't deserve " a bit of luck". There are many good people in jobs like this. Just not this guy!

Fantastic viewing........

Yeah, right......for the rest of the country who enjoy laughing at "them thick northerners" perhaps, but not for us normal Boltonians.

I have no "insider knowledge" of Metro Salvage (other than that time I took a wrong turn on Waterloo St and some bloke jumped out and tried selling me a radiator from a Chevette despite the fact that it wouldn't fit my Fiesta), so I have no personal axe to grind.

It just makes us look bad in the National Eye.

And that little scrote is now suddenly an internet sensation.

How can that be right?

As a society we have lost our sense of what is important and why people should be lauded.

I blame Cowell......and Facebook......and Twatter......and Thatcher.......

Ah, the apologist Muslim wums' back.

As you well know, the reason they felt obliged to keep it quiet was because you lot would have played "The Card" at your earliest convenience as soon as the truth started to come out.

And British society is sooo geared up to not offending your mob for fear of criticism under the political correctness rules that it would take something monumentally "uncover-upable" to break a story like this one.

Like 1400 kids being systematically abused for profit in your community for 15 year and it being kept quiet and someone finally speaking out, innit?

We're coming for you, mate.

The days of playing "The Card" without redress will soon be gone.

Yeah, right......for the rest of the country who enjoy laughing at "them thick northerners" perhaps, but not for us normal Boltonians.

I have no "insider knowledge" of Metro Salvage (other than that time I took a wrong turn on Waterloo St and some bloke jumped out and tried selling me a radiator from a Chevette despite the fact that it wouldn't fit my Fiesta), so I have no personal axe to grind.

It just makes us look bad in the National Eye.

And that little scrote is now suddenly an internet sensation.

And poor little Boyle is getting loads, for doing nothing!
I can just picture you now, stamping your feet, having a tantrum!
Awwwww, it's a shame!
A lot of the self righteous noobs on here will be stamping their hush puppied feet because some down to earth lads are getting a bit of attention, arnt people nasty little critics when they see somebody doin ok
Down to earth lads?
how many DOWN TO EARTH LADS working in heaven, ALSO KNOWN AS metro salvage have a criminal record. Have you or any other sad person on here asked what the victims of Boyle and his cronies are feeling. Hey, maybe you are one of the tattooed thugs I see daily on Calvin street. But not to worry, the likes of you will fleece this idiot dry of the money he makes over the next few years by blagging on your ONE OF THE LADS. The likes of me and most other HONEST people will be paying for this **** when he is penniless and homeless.

This comment is wholly inappropriate... Mentioning child abuse in a light hearted story about a TV series is very sad, and not at all funny. Is it something you would say to someone's face and not hiding behind a computer?
And the questionable parentage quote is appropriate?
And yes, I would say it to their face if they spoke about my mother like the sulker did!
If you had as many brain cells as you did facebook friends, you'd probably realise I was referring to your Facebook friends mothers not yours. Keep up sweetheart!
Whatever you say!

I work very hard and save lives.
Stick your fame up your butt hole,basically. Because at the end of the day they will still be misled into thinking they're some kind of super star (as is the dumbed down way of society and the media) and in 12 months time nobody will remember them, all delusions of grandeur gone.

But I will still be working hard and saving lives and you can't put a price on that.
So be away with you.

Shall we run away together and declare our love on a foreign beach and have it witnessed by a couple of Mexican waiters?
You make me feel whole.

I work at Metro Salvage, I have an undergrad in Journalism and a Masters in Publishing, and although I'm not on the programme, I am proud to say that I work with these 'dodgy' 'thick' 'lovable rogues'. (They are none of the above, I hasten to add). It is laughable that you believe that your job/profession is any more important to the country/economy that mine. Here's news for you, it isn't. Scrap metal contributes £5.6 billion to the UK economy, every year. And seeing, as though Metro Salvage is in the top ten salvage yards in the country, that's an awful lot of money. We pay our taxes and our NI, just how do you think we could get away with not? And yes, there is no disputing that Boyle's past is chequered, he, nor we have ever denied the fact, it is out there every Friday for the country to see, Scrappers isn't about that. What it is about is a boss who will see the good in people until the very end, who can see potential in those nobody else will and also just how to make a business remain successful year on year. I think you are jealous, because how can these undereducated, inexperienced men possibly be doing better than you? How could a nation possibly be more interested in them than you? Well, simple fact Original Angry Dad and Big Ern, you're bores. More interested in slating a TV programme in a local newspaper, than going out and filling your time with interesting people and things. Don't like us? It's easy, don't watch us.

I seem to remember an alleged incident reported in the Bolton news a few years ago now where a number of cars were found in that yard which could not be accounted for, mind you the owner in them days was a Terry Corless so probably unconnected.....
