The Bidding Room review: BBC1’s new antique show is full of old ideas – Ian Hyland

Anyone who reckons there are no new ideas in television should check out this latest mid-afternoon offering from BBC1.

And have their suspicions instantly confirmed.

It’s Dickinson’s Real Deal meets Channel’s 4’s Four Rooms meets Bargain Hunt meets Celebrity Antiques Road Trip, with a little Dragons Den “I’m out” action thrown in for good measure.

Adding to the air of familiarity there’s a jolly antiques dealer called Adie who is such a dead ringer for 90s DJ Jono Coleman it’s barely even worth pointing it out, and an expert called Simon who wears a cap like Jay Blades from The Repair Shop but who, on closer inspection, could actually be Lee Mack in disguise.

Nigel, Simon and the team

On the evidence so far, however, The Bidding Room owes its biggest debt to Harry Enfield’s Saw You Coming sketches – because some absolutely crazy money has been flying around that room this week.

It is hosted by legendary British thespian Nigel Havers, who is at least a hundred times more smartly dressed than anyone else in the joint and who likes to add a touch of unexpected drama from the start by leaping from his seat at a wooden table as if the fire alarm has just gone off.

Nigel Havers at the bidding table

Day One, Nigel explained the premise of the show as follows: “Anything can be bought or sold.”

At least I think he was talking about the show. For all I know he may have simply been recalling what he said to his agent when he was first offered the gig.

A more frank description of the format would be “random members of the public take some tat they’ve found in their attic to an auction room and try to mug off some antique dealers.”

The fun part is they’ve already had their items valued by Simon, so they – and we – know exactly what they are really worth.

Over time I guess you might start to feel sorry for the five dealers as they are fooled – sorry, I mean persuaded – into paying top dollar.

For now though, you’ll probably take one look at them as they try to establish their credentials as “a bit of a character” for the telly and be tempted to whisper this simple message to every punter who walks through their door.

Take them to the cleaners.
