Dave Fishwick’s ‘Bank of Dave’ in running for BAFTA
Burnley TV star David Fishwick is hoping to bag a BAFTA for his hit Channel 4 show “Bank of Dave.”
The Sabden-based entrepreneur and small-screen sensation has been nominated for the second instalment of the programme “Fighting the Fat Cats” where he took on the banking giants with his tiny Burnley bank.
It is the second time the show has been nominated for an award at the British Academy Scotland Awards.
But Mr Fishwick faces stiff competition in the feature and factual entertainments category at the ceremony this Sunday.
The Bank of Dave will come up against Victoria Wood’s Nice Cup of Tea, from the BBC, and Kirstie’s Fill Your House for Free which aired on Channel 4.
But Mr Fishwick hopes to finally bring a BAFTA award back to Burnley.
He said: “It is very exciting – I cannot believe we have been nominated year on year.
“We are incredibly lucky and privileged to be up for an award again.
“It has been a great team effort from the TV company, Channel 4 and everyone at the bank.
“We have created banking history in Britain by taking on the regulators.
“I am really looking forward to the awards and I hope that we can win.”
