Best known for the fifteen years he spent on Discovery Channel’s Wheeler Dealers, Edd China was the longstanding mechanic and presenter on the show.

Showing an early love for all things automobile, Edd studied a degree in engineering product design at London South Bank University. Edd’s breakthrough into the industry came whilst he was completing a project for his degree, a driving sofa called the ‘Casual Lofa’.
