Craig Charles's Red Dwarf (1988) co-star Robert Llewellyn whom played the robot Kryten in that series hosted Junkyard Wars (1998) at the same time. In that show, contestants constructed machines out of scrap metal and spare parts in a junkyard. In this show, contestant's remote controlled home made robots fight each other to the death in the arena.
