Shreddies: “Shreddie for Anything” - 30s

This lively piece of work for Shreddies stars perma-stubbled presenter Nick Knowles in his ultimate form: a man who "built the hospital [he] was born in"; puts up shelves via telekinesis; and generally gets things done. He emerges from a washing hamper to help rouse a comatose teenager, taking his cue from Wallace & Gromit in the process.

The result brims with strong visual gags, such as Knowles's baby photo (complete with thatch, stubble, and tool belt) and a classic stare off into the distance that bemuses his companion. Directors Fatal Farm also coax a robust performance out of the DIY SOS man, who doubtless tries to replicate his psychic party trick at home. Deftly realised zaniness.
