Over the past 28 years Sean James, 51, from Staffordshire, has reclaimed 66,000 cars "at a very modest estimate" from the nation's most brutal thugs and criminals.
He found his calling "by accident" after flunking his school exams and leaving without any qualifications.
After stints in the Royal Navy and a private detective agency, he went into repossessions where he became known for taking on the worst cases that companies had "virtually written off" as lost.
Sean's reputation led him to star in Channel 4 doc Repo Man in 2013 and now he's an internet sensation, racking up 13million views on YouTube alone.
Despite his impressive history, the 6ft 3in, 18st star, 51, tells The Sun: “I'm not a hard guy. Yeah I stand up for myself, but I wouldn't go down as one of history's hard men.
"The thing with me is that I don't give a f*** what happens, even when people have pointed guns at me, tried to hit me with hammers and attacked me with knives.
"When you hear 'You're f*****g dead' every day you get accustomed to it.
Over the years Sean's taken on notorious gangsters, most of which were armed with guns, knives and baseball bats.
