Roo Irvine, Caroline Hawley and Danny Sebastian are joining the presenting team of ‘Bargain Hunt’.

The long-running BBC One antiques competition show is getting a trio of fresh faces - adding to the already existing lineup of experts Natasha Raskin Sharp, Christina Trevanion, Eric Knowles and Charlie Ross - to help novices make a killing at auction houses across the nation.

Roo - who will make her debut on 13 June in an episode set in Southwell, Nottinghamshire - called filming is “exhilarating, exciting and great fun” but isn’t a fan of her ‘morning alarm” to film the show, which airs everyday at 12.15pm.

She continued: “I’m loving every second of it! 'Bargain Hunt' has such a happy, chilled vibe and that’s down to the contestants and the crew. It’s like a big family. They say ‘do what you love and you’ll never do a day’s work again’ – that is definitely me!”

“I am a night owl and definitely not a morning person, so my morning alarm when filming often makes me cry into my pillow!”

Caroline - who channels her inner ‘Top Gun’ need for speed in her first episode on 27 June in a Spitfire at RAF Cosford in Shropshire - feels “lucky” to immerse herself in British military history.

She said “I find it incredibly moving to sit in the cockpit where a young man sat in the war, very, very moving. Spine tingling. I feel very privileged to do that, very lucky.”

Caroline added: “Presenting ‘Bargain Hunt’ is absolutely amazing. I enjoy it so much! It’s fantastic to meet so many people with a passion for their subject, whatever that is. I love it all.”

Danny - a noted fan of upcycling will make his debut in October- labelled his new gig “like a dream come true”.

He said: “I’m absolutely over the moon, it’s beautiful really. It’s like a dream come true. I always thought I’d love to do this job – I’m so extremely fortunate to be given the opportunity. It’s a fabulous show, very iconic and presenting it has given me a real kick.”

Of meeting the teams in Harrogate, Danny said: “It’s so nice to meet the teams because you find it’s a great buzz for them too and you’re feeling that with them.”
