DAVID Fishwick’s crusade against the banking industry landed his team a BAFTA at the second time of asking.

The producers behind the Burnley-born minibus mogul’s show, Bank of Dave, beat off competition from Kirstie Allsopp’s Fill Your House For Free, and Victoria Wood’s Nice Cup Of Tea, to win in the Features and Entertainment category at the British Academy Scotland Awards.

Mr Fishwick said: “We are all in a good mood. I don’t think you can ever expect to win, but in the back of mind my fingers were crossed. It’s fantastic.

“I’m a big fan of Victoria Wood and I met Kirstie Allsopp last year on The One Show. All I could think was ‘they know what they’re doing’.

“When we won, we had a few pints of lager because I’m not into champagne. I’m just one of the lads so I think I was one of the only people holding a pint while everybody had little glasses of champagne.

“I really want to stress it’s down to the team. Everybody made this happen.”

In 2012, Mr Fishwick, a self-made millionaire, picked up the Royal Television Society’s prize for best nations and regions programme for the same series.

The show, which followed Mr Fishwick’s low-interest ‘bank’, Burnley Savings and Loans Limited, was made by Finestripe Productions for Channel 4.

The bank opened in Keirby Walk, Burnley in September 2011, after Mr Fishwick found many of his minibus firm’s customers were struggling to get loans from their high street banks.

Under the slogan ‘Bank on Dave’, Mr Fishwick obtained the documentation needed to issue loans, and later concentrated on offering savings at a better rate than other banks.

Any profits after overheads are donated to charity, and the bank’s website proudly states ‘we do not do big bonuses’.

In the same awards last year, the programme lost out to The Antiques’ Road Trip.
