Bargain Hunt has a plethora of antique enthusiasts and experts to help give each episode’s teams the advice they need to make the right purchases. The BBC One hit daytime series had to say goodbye to fan-favourite David Harper after 15 years on the programme. He grew up with a love of antiques which fuelled his career on both Bargain Hunt and Antiques Road Trip during his time on the shows.
David says he has been surrounded by antiques all of his life as it was a passion of his parents who loved to hunt for precious items at auctions.
He’s collected coins and stamps from the age of five and bought his first antique at the age of nine, a Victorian silver plated basked for his mum’s birthday.
In the early noughties, David worked as a BBC Radio antique phone-in for four years, valuing live on-air and answering questions from the public.
With a wealth of experience under his belt, David went on to appear on Bargain Hunt for the first time in 2005.
He wrote: “Opportunity for a budding filmmaker: I’m filming a pilot for a TV gameshow idea to pitch to commissioners.
“It’ll be one day in Ripon N. Yorkshire, plus editing & graphics.
“You’ll need your own equipment. Please email me for more info.”
As of yet, there has been no indication as to what the project is exactly and whether David is still working on it.
