If you love The Repair Shop (and Will, of course!) then The Travelling Auctioneers is bound to be your cup of tea. A mix between The Repair Shop and Antiques Road Trip, the new show will see Will embark on a journey across the UK coming across some incredible items along the way.

But, similar to the ones brought into the iconic barn, the items they come across are in need of a freshening up. Can Will restore them enough to get a good profit?

Who will appear on Will Kirk's The Travelling Auctioneers?

As mentioned in the synopsis, Will is joined by Christina Trevanion for each episode. TV fans will recognise Christina thanks to her role on other BBC programme, Antiques Road Trip.

Christina has also appeared on shows such as Bargain Hunt and also runs her own auction business. With her business partner, Aaron Dean, she set up Trevanion & Dean which is located on Whitchurch, Shropshire. As of 2019, Christina has taken on sole ownership of the firm. We think Christina and Will are going to make the perfect team!
