Five years on from his break-out appearance in Pineapple Dance Studios, international TV celebrity Louie Spence has found that his showbusiness bookings have somewhat slowed down, so he's landed himself a prestigious new job 'just as an insurance policy' – driving a mini cab around Harlow in Essex.
To prepare for this momentous change in career, Louie has taken a real minicab driving test, got himself a proper private operators license and been offered a real job by Metro Cars in Harlow - where he is preparing to launch himself onto an unsuspecting local public as a regular taxi driver.
Louie will be picking up and dropping off real punters, sometimes following them on to interesting jobs, nights out or dates - whether that's training with a gorgeous footballer, going greyhound racing or getting a spray tan from one of his rides. Add in to this the potential for the odd celebrity passenger, a tempestuous and often flirtatious relationship with Metro cars' radio dispatch operator and the day-to-day shenanigans of a real-life taxi office, and you've got a recipe for a joyous and fun mix of real-world actuality and Louie's traditional break out 'happenings'.
