Danny Sebastian is a British antiques expert and a Television personality. He is one of the most popular experts on BBC1’s ‘Bargain Hunt’ and ‘Street Auction’. The CBeebies’ Junk Rescue host is best known for his regular appearances on BBC’s ‘Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is’, a series where consumer experts were put to the test against each other to make profit putting their own money and reputations on the line.

Danny was born and raised in Northampton, United Kingdom. His parents had moved from the Dominican Republic to the United Kingdom. When he was just 15 years old, tragedy struck his family when his father died. The death of his father got him depressed for years. He also served four years in jail after being associated with crimes such as robbery and violence. Danny may have had a ‘misspent’ youth but he is a different man now. These days he is a gentle giant who sees himself as more of a lover than a fighter!
Antiques dealer Danny Sebastian has always been interested in collecting things; growing up he was taught that you can always make something good out of junk and from the age of 8 would accompany his mum to the auction house.
He funded his own business by raising money from working in warehouses to buy a van and started buying and selling antiques. He has the eye for an antique bargain and his knowledge of antiques and vintage is encyclopaedic, gleaned from years of reading up. His particular interest and expertise is in 20th century antique furniture. He travels all over the country in his Afrojunk van which bears the slogan ‘specialists in the nicer things in life’ visiting car boot sales, auctions and antique fairs.
His biggest profit at auction… A large glass desk that was a Premier League Footballers, bought for £170 and sold for £900. A piece of vintage luggage bought for £35 and sold for almost £400. A Frenchman drove from France to pick up a red 1950s cocktail bar that he bought for £110 and sold for £1000+, “it looked real special and I always wondered whether he knew something about it that I didn’t,” Danny told BBC’s Bargain Hunt.
