Rico Daniels
Extreme recycler and star of The Salvager, and the follow up Le Salvager - his own series for Discovery Real Time. Each show sees him knock up something weird and wonderful from the most unlikely mix of rubbish and reclamation – such as a TV/DVD entertainment unit that was once a galvanised water tank and two 50s fire extinguishers.
Inspired by his upbringing in the East End of London in the 1950s, Rico spent his time salvaging from ruined houses and factories around him. When he’s not up to his elbows in rubbish, Rico likes nothing more than a spot of fire-breathing, axe-throwing or knocking out a tune on his blues harmonica.
