The next hour-long summer special of The Magazine is set to see Sarah Travers encounter monster trucks, the Lizard Lick Towing crew, stand-up comedy, and the inimitable Joey Essex.

Sarah finds herself surrounded by metal and muscle as she heads to this year's Truckfest Ireland, which took place at Balmoral Park in Lisburn on 16-17 August.

She chats to Lizard Lick's Ron Shirley and his cousin Johnny, even daring to ask just how real their US show - which sees them getting into all sorts of trouble as they repossess vehicles - can get.

"The first two seasons, the first 56 episodes, 100% (real). And then I got stabbed," Ronnie casually reveals, of the 'improvised reality' show.

Ooookay then.

Another Truckfest celebrity guest and ex-TOWIE star Joey Essex talks to Sarah about his life since leaving the Australian jungle on I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!

It's been pretty reem, but there's just one problem ...

"I still don't know how to tell the time," he admits, showing Sarah his watch to get her to check if it's set to the right time. It isn't, Joey - it's not even set to the right date!

"I ain't wore it for a while, so actually the clock stopped. It's just a fashion statement."

Aww, bless.

And, back in the UTV rooftop garden studio, Sarah is joined by up-and-coming Holywood comedian Shane Todd and his stage alter-ego 'Mike McGoldrick'.

There will also be an opportunity to catch some of the best bits from this year's series.

Viewers can join in the conversation by tweeting @UTVMag during the show, using the hashtag #utvmag.

Catch The Magazine on Wednesday 20 August at 8pm on UTV.
