Yorkshire location for new BBC One show The Bidding Room


Nigel Havers will be hosting a new BBC One daytime series, from the makers of The Repair Shop.

The Bidding Room is set in “an emporium deep in the Yorkshire countryside”, where a group of dealers will seek to outbid each other to buy items brought in by the public.

“The Bidding Room introduces BBC One Daytime viewers to a line-up of exciting new expert talent. Each of the bidders are at the top of their individual fields. They’ll be daunting opponents not just for the sellers but for their own peers,” said Acting Head of Daytime, Carla-Maria Lawson.

The show is an adaptation of Bares für Rares (Cash for Trash), which was originally created by ZDF Germany and produced by WBITVP Germany. The German version has been on air since 2015 and is the country’s number one daytime factual entertainment show.

It’s also proved a success in France and has just been launched in the Netherlands.

In the UK it will be made by Warner Bros. International Television Production UK’s Ricochet.

“Everyone has something at home they’d love to sell if they knew where to go. Now, the secret’s out – The Bidding Room is the place to come and I’ll be there to help them get the best price,” said Nigel Havers.

The Series Producer is Claire Egerton-Jones.
