  • It was difficult to watch Wheeler Dealers after Edd left. But Ant has grown on me. I dont understand the criticism of Mike in the comment section. He is the reason the show is as big as success as it is and he is fun to watch. Without him it would just have been another fixing cars show.

  • I honestly don't understand all the hate this guy gets. He's really entertaining to watch and clearly knows loads about what he talks about. He's not the same as Edd but I really enjoy watching him!

  • I don't know what to think of him . He seems like he will do anything to please people . At least edd would stand his ground with Mike . You seem like a yes man .

  • Don't take it the wrong way but here will probably have the same problem as Ed China in the end, partly because he is in a way as Ed China ie repairs to cars very vigorous and doing it the right way

  • Great guy, but missing edd China. Ant the police are asking for your return. P. S. Ant remember Barry Bucknell, Google him, he was the master at car repairs.

  • I can't stand how scripted the new show is, I've just watched Mike brewer say 'I don't know what you're wearing but you smell lovely' to ant. This kind of forced bon homie where there seems to be more of an emphasis on 'banter'. Shudder, I don't like forced banter. It's a cringe fest. Get rid of brewer, wd's with edd and ant.

  • Like both Ant and Edd, I just wish they would get back to doing cars that the everyday, common man can afford. Don't get me wrong I love all the cars you've done but the budget has got a bit crazy now. Would love to see a series where you pick the top 5-10 selling second hand cars of the previous year and do those up.

  • In all honesty I'm a fan of both Edd and Ant. Mike, as annoying as he is, does help to make the show. An annoying host with a sensible mechanic.

  • I like both guys. Wouldn't it be wonderful to have them together if they don't dislike each other. I am so much like Ed in going off the deep end I can see both he and I should cool down a bit. Today I did an Ant because I see it works. Sad that Ant has to act dumber than he is. We are seeing through that now.

  • When I saw Ant on the first Wheeler Dealer after Edd was no more, he actually made the show go on. I miss Edd China but I don't dislike Ant at all, because he is a mechanic and the show is all about mechanics. I wish to see Edd and Ant work in a project, building, or inventing, they both have high skills and creative minds. Ant didn't replace Edd China and I believe he deserves some credit. I have no comment on Mike, life goes on and so the show.

  • I started watching WDers from day one, It appealed to me, that they took a cheap car that anyone could afford to buy and restore it. Today's car shows are pretty much all the same format. Take a car and get as much HP out of it as possible. Having said that, I do like Ant, he brings something a bit different to the show and it works. I miss Edd, he will always be remembered and I wish him well. I just wish they would go back to their roots and buy some cheap cars and bring them back to factory.

  • Both Edd and Ant have incredible talents and skills. I see a greater passion in Ant, love his expressions and character (or maybe he just shows it more), I have watched other programs Ant has been part of and see that passion there as well. The best to all - wheeler dealers cast and crew and Edd.

  • There is absolutely no need for Mike Brewer at all in any new TV series, both Ant and Edd China are capable of presenting and restoring cars in their own right without Mike the show can concentrate on indepth technical and mechanical skills and know how which the fans absolutely demand ,we have no interest in Motormouth MIkes ego or opinions. brewer is a spent force. The times are changing fans want to see the real work done.

  • I actually prefer Ant to Edd. Ant comes across as a more friendly and accessible personality. I always felt Edd was a bit arrogant and tended to talk down to you on camera. Ant’s personality is more of a just having a chat with a mate in his garage while he’s doing stuff. Much better😁😁

  • I like Ant, liked him on other car shows he was a on too, but Edd, had a understated chill vibe, the ingratiated him to fans. If we all didn't already like Edd, Ant would've been fine. I watched the old version of the show all the time, but just not so motivated anymore. Clearly Ant is capable, but Edd was capable and made you feel like you could be too.

  • You should do a show with average people in the area. Build cars, fix them and so on. Maybe get all the High school auto shop classes within California together on a year long project. I know the school auto shop class I work for in San Diego would love it. None of these shows have ever done this and getting kids into cars at an early age would and could help them stay out of trouble.
