The bidding Room

The bidding Room

Finding something you love and something you can earn enough to put clothes on your back, food on the table with good shelter to lie in, is hard, but I feel gratitude  to have reached this point.

I’ve never been afraid to try new things that lead to new adventures. I was not sure how it would turn out but was willing to take a big leap of faith and put in appearances on a new TV show on BBC 1 The Bidding Room. Series One, originally went out on air  during Uk’s first lockdown last year and was received very well.

Another  25 episodes  were re commissioned, showing from 4/1/2021 at 4.30pm every day BBC1 Series One repeats showing on Wednesdays 7.30pm.

You head down a road and never know where it’s going to lead, it was a fun filled show and the experience  allowed me to push myself.


What happens on the The bidding Room

Before the participants face the five dealers, they first speak to expert auctioneer Simon Bower. Simon values their items and advises them what to highlight and emphasise to the bidders in order to get the most money from them. There are many dealers that feature on the show, and each participant faces five at a time. The dealers are James Broad, Adi Higham, Lucy Ryder Richardson,Ian Humphries, James Gooch, Jane Cave, Natasha Francis and myself Moses Otunla.

After Meeting Simon and Nigel Havers armed with the  knowledge about their items, the participant  is ready to enter The bidding room.

If you get a  chance, have a watch of some guilt free TV.

breath away .Discoveries of rituals and powerful meanings

behind hundreds of years of traditions leave one in wonder.
