SWANSEA’S Nev Wilshire said The Call Centre may not be back for a third series on television.

While the second series of the reality programme is currently being aired on BBC Three, the boss of Save Britain Money, who has been dubbed the real life David Brent, said he may not be making another.

The 55-year-old multimillionaire said he needed to concentrate on the business and wanted to explore other ventures.

“I need to have two or three months of getting the business back on track after being distracted for a few months,” he said.

“The BBC want to start series three, but I am not sure whether I will or not.”

“I take my eye off the ball a bit. I said if they want to do series three I will need at least two or three months to get the plates spinning and my fingers back on the pulse otherwise there won’t be anything to film.”

The larger than life boss said he was amazed that The Call Centre had done so well.

It’s the biggest show BBC3 have ever had,” he said.

“More people watch The Call Centre than Gavin and Stacey, isn’t that incredible?

“But it is not my show, I just come to work and they send camera crews down and film whatever is going on.”

The show’s success has led to Nev looking at exploring other television ventures.

“I have had interest from other TV channels wanting me to do other TV programmes,” he said.

“What I would really love to do would be a programme on showing people how to save money on their bills.

“That is what interests me. I’m not a producer, I’m a businessman, and there have been other ideas floated where they think I would be the ideal candidate."

The BBC will be celebrating the 100th anniversary of the birth of poet Dylan Thomas.

Nev added: “The BBC have asked me to do a bit of the Dylan Thomas series which I would love to do in honour of one of the all time Swansea greats.”

    the most pathetic show in the world!!! This is exactly why call centres have such bad press. Nev and the call centre workers are a complete embarrassment to humanity. Are we all turning into cretins. YES! if you think this is worthy of television. absolute load of rubbish that should be banned from our screens. Nev acts like a twelve year old, who's he trying to impress? his old school teacher!!!!! GET RID OF THIS ASAP so that the normal people out there can keep their sanity!!!

    If the Krays had still been around, would we have seen programmes on how the East End Boys have made good? Might we have seen them collecting protection money in their manor - righting a few wrongs - keeping the police on side ??

    The worst entertainment on TV! How people like Nev Wiltshire are given exposure to highlight their ridiculous business practices on beyond me. The BBC should be ashamed of commissioning rubbish at the expense of the taxpayer!

    Nev must be proud of his middle aged management being shown chasing girls half their age. No wonder the company has such a huge turnover of staff.

    Well thank goodness for that, why the BBC are wasting licence payers money on this foul mouthed programme in which you see & hear them mocking the person on the end of the phone I don't know, I saw some of the first series & that was enough but have not watched 2nd series.
