image for Channel 4 To Broadcast New Property Show 'Repossession, Repossession, Repossession'
Can't pay? Get out!

As the Credit Crunch really begins to bite consumers hard, Channel 4 launches its newest and hardest-hitting property show yet next month entitled Repossession, Repossession, Repossession.

The show's focus is self-explanatory: as a result of the current world financial downturn, more and more homeowners in the UK are finding it increasingly difficult to continue paying their mortgages. Repossession usually follows.

During the last 12 months, the number of repossessions has, if you'll pardon the terrible pun, 'gone through the roof'.

The number of repossessions in the second quarter of this year was 11,054, up 71% compared with a year earlier.

The new show has been created to allow people who still have some money, to identify just where the most desirable repossessions are, and to be able to attend auction and acquire properties for their already-massive portfolios.

Families will be shown being thrown out of their homes onto the street, with many of them subsequently splitting from each other. For many, the loss of the family home is too much to bear, and even direr consequences lay in wait.

A Channel 4 spokesman said:

"I am unavailable for comment."
