Tradespeople face off on new TV show

Having a hard time finding the perfect plumber? Let television do it for you.

In a new television show, due to air in May, tradesmen throughout New Zealand will compete, Pop Idol-style, in a national Jack of All Trades Competition.

Contestants will be tested on their speed, skill, professionalism, safety, innovation and creativity in pursuit of prizes including a ute, tool kit and workwear wardrobe.

Heats will be held in Christchurch and Wellington in March, with four people from each centre going into the final shed-building challenge.
