Joe Lycett's Got Your Back

Joe Lycett to tackle greenwashing for Channel 4

Having previously fought for the rights of consumers in Joe Lycett’s Got Your Back, Lycett will now confront the companies exaggerating their environmental credentials for marketing purposes.

The film will air ahead of the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference, which starts on 31st October 2021.

Lycett will focus on the energy giant Shell and their marketing as they continue to search for new oil reserves.

The extraordinary Joe Lycett

Warm, witty and occasionally waspish, Joe Lycett is just the man to keep us entertained during lockdown. It’s fortunate, then, that he is presenting two lengthy prime-time TV series, with another on the way. And after a whirlwind few months making them, Lycett – while mindful of the suffering that Covid-19 has brought many – concludes that the new normal has been beneficial to his mental health.

The new eight-part series will see Lycett once again battle both national business and solo rogues to seek justice for wronged consumers. 

Lycett and his consumer sidekick and ‘technical assistant’ Mark Silcox will tackle everything from cowboy builders to email scammers.​

The first series saw Lycett take on giants such as Britannia Hotels and easyJet, and managed to change the policies of Uber Eats, SpareRoom and RBS.

Everyday customer service heroes were celebrated and people got thousands of pounds back.
