The show where bidders go head to head to buy random items from storage bins, returns with legend Sean Kelly at the helm. The auctioneer extraordinaire once again travels the length and breadth of the country, opening up abandoned containers, bins and lock-ups in ten episodes of wheeler-dealing, cut-throat bidding, backstabbing, and all out auction combat.
Our favourite treasure seekers will be scouring the country to try and pay the lowest price for the greatest haul. Argumentative couple Nat and John, the man with the van Scotty and loveable Linda, are back, along with a whole host of new hopefuls trying to make their fortune. The inimitable booming Heavy D (real name - Colin) returns and is prepared to take a risk on just about anything. Sean tries to bring order to the proceedings as our band of storage unit pirates use their street-wise expertise, business nous, and frankly any dirty tricks they can think of, to get one over on their rivals.
Will the contestants stay true to their bidding tactics? Will their poker faces hold firm? Will they gamble away their bunce to make sure they get what they want? Will antagonism from their rivals make them crack and lose the plot?
Storage Hunters UK, only on Dave, from Tuesday 15th September at 8pm.
The first episode will be premiere on UKTV Play from Wednesday 9th September.
