Mike Brewer from "Wheeler Dealers Trading Up" is the host of the Discovery Channel reality series.

Ex-car trader Mike Brewer has spent most of his 43 years selling thousands of motor vehicles and is perhaps best known in the U.K. as the star of Channel 4's second-hand car show "Deals on Wheels" and the top-rated motoring program "Driven."

The baby of six, Brewer had a South London upbringing and eventually the family settled down in Surrey where, during school holidays, you could hear him shouting as he was selling fruit 'n' veg on a stall. He got into the motor trade in his late teens and quickly built a reputation for being sharp and honest. He set up and ran the biggest 4×4 center in the south of England importing cars from around the globe.

Brewer embarked on his television career through pure luck. He answered a friend's telephone and discovered he was talking to a television producer. A long chat and a few anecdotes ensued and he was hired for the first series of "Deals on Wheels." His success in this role led him into the presenter's position on "Driven."

In 2003 Brewer presented the final series of "Driven" for Channel 4 (over 100 episodes in total) but also branched out and recorded several other programs for the Discovery Channel and ITV. He was seen presenting several specials, including "Driven at Le Mans," as well as "The British Rally Championships" for Channel 4 Sports and now Sky sports. He also fronted a series about celebrities and their gadgets, called "He's Gotta Have It," for Discovery Channel as well as a motoring series called "Wheeler Dealers," which had massive success.

Brewer also had his own format commissioned by Discovery Channel called "Remote Madness." It's a game show that's made up of radio-controlled craft racing each other over obstacles. He also presented Channel Four's flagship program about overcoming disability in Britain called "Celebrity Wheelchair Challenge." He oversaw Gaby Roslin, Tanya Strecker and Sean Hughes traveling from Edinburgh to London in a wheelchair. Other credits include "House Race" for ITV1 Central, and his own motoring program for ITV1 national, called "Wrecks to Riches," as well as "Revved-Up."
