Toby Foster’s talent for narration is second to none. And fans of Yesterday’s Bangers & Cash know it! He’s been the show’s narrator ever since its inaugural season in 2019 and remains its storyteller as of 2022. Let’s learn more about him as this Toby Foster Bio proceeds.
Meet Toby Foster, Bangers And Cash Narrator
Yesterdays’ Bangers And Cash followed the Mathewsons family, who hunted for rare vehicles to resell, and also in doing so, uncover some remarkable and heart-warming stories behind the cars. But those “heartwarming stories” wouldn’t be so heartwarming if it wasn’t shared in the voice of Toby Foster.
“Each car has a unique story to tell. It was the dad’s car, the car you first bought as a teenager, the car you always wanted but never had the cash to buy,” Derek (the family’s patriarch) explained.
Other members of the Mathewsons included — Paul and Dave (sons), Charlie (grandson), and Sarah Crabtree (who isn’t a Mathewsons).
Airing its first season on April 18, 2019, Bangers And Cash has already made it far to its fifth installment, which premiered in January 2022. Also, its spin-off Bangers And Cash: Restoring Classics was being filmed then.
In case you’re interested, Mathewsons stated way back in 1970, first offering modern car and commercial vehicles in Bedfordshire. Over time, the company expanded its branches throughout the UK, and wow, it offers a variety of Classic and Vintage cars.
Someday, the company hopes to hold all of its total operations in one location.
