Motorcycle star Guy Martin ready to make TV return
KIRMINGTON speedster Guy Martin makes his hotly-anticipated television return tomorrow evening.
The popular motorcycle racer hinted he may not be back on our screens following his previous BBC series, The Boat That Guy Built, last year.
More than four million viewers followed his quirky quest to restore an old narrow boat and most didn't even know he races bikes at 200mph in his other life.
However, the 30-year-old returns on Channel 4 with his new programme, How Britain Worked, tomorrow.

As reported, Martin recently brought down the curtain on his 2012 road racing season with five wins from six at Oliver's Mount.
The daredevil took the coveted Steve Henshaw International Gold Cup for an incredible eighth time at the Scarborough meeting.
He is also still chasing his first race win at the prestigious Isle of Man TT event, where he has finished on the podium on numerous occasions.
In his new six-part series, the engineering enthusiast celebrates the workers of the Industrial Revolution by getting stuck into six of the country's biggest restoration projects.
Produced by North One Television – the company behind the TT's television coverage – each episode focuses on the jobs of the Industrial Revolution's unsung heroes.
Martin explores their way of life, the dangers they faced and the skills they possessed which were the envy of the world.
In the opening programme, he overhauls a steam locomotive.
He will also renovate a Yorkshire saw mill powered by the world's oldest surviving water turbine.
Guy Martin's How Britain Worked begins on Channel 4 tomorrow at 8pm.
