His passion for antiques started at a young age after his grandmother showed him a Victorian Crown coin she kept in a little music box. Tim was just nine years old at the time but says he was hooked immediately and knew he wanted to pursue a career where he could be surrounded by antiquities.

Before joining Antiques Road Trip, he worked for two leading auction houses for almost ten years and built up a reputation as an expert in the field before he was tapped by BBC to join the much-loved daytime show.

What has Tim Medhurst said about Antiques Road Trip?

Tim became a part of the BBC One daytime show in 2018, joining the likes of David Harper, Phil Serrell and Christina Trevanion on the team of antique experts. 

Speaking about the role, he told The Sun: "It's quite amazing really, I feel very honoured to be able to whizz around the country buying antiques as it's my favourite thing to do," adding: "It is quite nice to be on the show and put over a young person's perspective on antiques."

However, he admitted that there can be frustrating moments viewers don't always see onscreen. "You sometimes find things that are out of your budget, that's the worst thing," he said. "If you've got a small amount of money left and you find something quite amazing but you don't have enough left to buy it, that's the most gutting thing."
