Car shows are nothing new. Car shows presented by members of Take That are.

Howard Donald co-presents alongside four-time IndyCar champion Dario Franchitti in this automotive challenge series. In it, two teams of car lovers are given the parts of an old car and have to be the first to successfully rebuild it. The first to start the ignition wins, and the team gets to keep the car they just assembled.

In this first episode, the cars to be reconstructed are two classic convertibles: a Porsche 944 Cabriolet and a Lotus Elan S2.

Mission Ignition is on Channel 4 at 20.30.
