Call Me a Cabbie
Call Me a Cabbie is a reality show where three celebrities have to learn all the skills needed to be a black cab driver in two months.
The first series originally aired from July to September 2006. The celebrities featured were Jeff Brazier, Carol Thatcher and Janet Street-Porter. Each week the group would learn new skills such as completing manoeuvres in their cabs, map reading and driving difficult passengers to destinations around London. At the end of the series the celebrities had to face both a written and a practical test to see if they had the required skills to become a cabbie.
The series was later screened (January 2008) on Life One.
