A FORMER head boy at Sir John Talbot's School in Whitchurch will feature in the upcoming season of Undercover Boss.

Robert Forrester, chief executive officer of Vertu, the firm that owns Bristol Street Motors, is one of four bosses set to feature in the upcoming series on ITV.

The new series of the hit show will see Robert go in disguise to work in his own showrooms, to see what really goes on behind closed doors.

Robert, 50, grew up in and around Whitchurch, attending SJT and still has strong family links to the area.

He will appear in the new series alongside bosses from Pickfords, Wyldecrest Parks, and Euro Foods Group.

Factual commissioner for ITV, Kate Teckman, said viewers would see Robert and his counterparts experience their businesses from their workers' perspective.

She said: "As we come out of the pandemic it's clear that there's never been a bigger gap between the multi-millionaire bosses and their workers.

"This is the perfect time to bring viewers an all-new Undercover Big Boss as we see how they will fare swapping their corporate dinners for packed lunches and what changes they will make for their workers."

Meanwhile, Studio Lambert's deputy creative director, Mike Cotton, said it was the perfect time to relaunch the series.

"There's never been a more relevant time to bring Undercover Boss back," he said.

"It's a fascinating snapshot of modern working Britain and we're very grateful to the bosses who were brave enough to don a disguise and embark on this journey amidst the chaos of a pandemic.''
