Our journalist and digital know-it-all has landed a one-hour TV slot on Sky for his self-directed documentary on London’s car-parazzi.

Harry Rutter, who has worked at this newspaper for more than three years, says it is “a dream come true” to get his show ‘Spotting London’s Supercars’ on TV.

Production begins at the start of 2021 after several delays due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and the show is set to feature a few famous faces.

Harry said: “This is a project of mine that has been in the pipeline for a very long time, I’ve been working on show’s concept since 2017.

“It really is a childhood dream come true to say that I have a TV programme coming to Sky and I’m so excited to start work on production.
