Ashworth has also starred in Antiques Road Trip, which is made by the same production company.

The Celebrity Yorkshire Auction House line-up also includes John Sergeant, Jon Culshaw, Claire Sweeney and Wayne Sleep.

The Yorkshire Auction House follows Angus Ashworth and his team as they clear homes and hunt for hidden gems to go under the gavel at Ryedale Auctioneers. Across the first series, participants made over £100,000 at auction on everything from Beatrix Potter figurines to a Bechstein piano.

Angus Ashworth said: “I had the time of my life on the first series of The Yorkshire Auction House and it’s great that the programme also connected with viewers in such a positive way. We discovered so many fascinating pieces in series one and it was a privilege to be invited into people’s homes to hear the heartwarming stories behind their hidden gems.

“I’m looking forward to getting back out there for round two - and with some showbiz legends onboard this time around, I can only imagine the weird and wonderful treasures we’re going to unearth!”

Producers at STV Studios are looking for items that Angus can sell from his rostrum in the new series. If you have a collection, want to downsize or have a house to clear and need some help, contact [email protected]
