We are delighted to share the news that one of our most dedicated supporters, Steph Frankish and her fiancé Chris, appeared on Bargain Hunt on Monday 23rd August 2021 as the excited “blue team”. They were set free in an antiques centre with a budget of £300 budget and the aim of raising a profit from three chosen items. Steph’s love of elephants influenced their purchases and they headed towards the auction with three lovely items.
Steph said: “I went on bargain hunt as my Dad is an amateur dealer and I have always been surrounded by antiques so I must admit Bargain Hunt is my guilty pleasure as I watch it on catch up after a stressful day! Chris, my fiancé, wasn’t as keen as me on going on the show it but he came around eventually (with only minimal persuading from me!). We had a really fun day! Even if it was a bit strange being around so many people in the middle of a pandemic! Thankfully they took all the precautions so we felt very safe while filming. Filming took place quite a while ago so it’s been tough not being able to speak about it with everyone as I don’t want to ruin it. Most people ask me ‘what colour team were you’, ‘who was your expert’ or ‘did you get the golden gavel?’ – its hard not to give the game away!”
The show aired at 12.15pm Monday, on BBC 2. Episodes can also be streamed on iPlayer.
The profits raised, a grand total of £87, will be halved between Bedfordshire Open Door and The Living Room in memory of Steph’s brother Chris Frankish.
A huge thank you to Steph and Chris for their continued support. 🙂
