West Midlands-based pest control firm Pest Interceptors is set to appear on reality show Filthy Britain SOS after programme makers followed the team around on jobs as they tried to help get rid of rodents and insects.

Stourbridge News reported that TV crews from Lambent Productions filmed the company over four days in December and January and the programme is set to air as part of the Channel 5 series.

Christan Hems, who founded the company with Mark Higgins two years ago, said: “They were long, hard days filming but we managed to squeeze in rats, mice, moles, squirrels, bed bugs and cockroaches.”

Scenes were filmed in Stourbridge, Kinver, Wolverhampton and Birmingham – and TV crews also filmed at Christan’s home in Wordsley as he took on an infestation of house mice at his own property.

He said: “The TV people loved it but it was an absolute nightmare. I was getting woken up every night at around 4-5am. It just goes to show – everyone’s susceptible. I was glad it was my house and not a customer’s.”

Pest Interceptors is expected to feature in several episodes of the reality TV show from Sunday, July 26.
