Tim Weeks Wiki – Tim Weeks Biography
Tim Weeks is a British director, auctioneer, valuer, and cataloguer. He is also a Bargain Hunt expert. His work entails being an auctioneer – from valuation and researching to cataloging and auctioneering. He got to be part of the Bargain Hunt when he was co-presenting BBC One’s Street Auction and his boss at Bargain Hunt called him to ask whether he could consider a screen test. He, therefore, took up the opportunity to be part of the British television institution.
Tim is an experienced auctioneer who is often asked to hold talks about his role within the industry as well as hosting charity auctions. As well as hosting his own weekly radio show on BBC Wiltshire, Tim is one of the regular experts on BBC Bargain Hunt and you may also recognise him from co-presenting the first series of BBC One’s Street Auction in 2016. Tim also contributes to many radio shows, magazines, websites and blogs around the world.

BBC Bargain hunt expert Tim Weeks grew up in a house where the dinner table discussions were all about what items had been brought in that day. He spent his weekends as a six-year-old sitting in the corner of auction rooms watching his father wield the gavel. “I thought it was the worst job in the world,” Tim said. It wasn’t until he got older he realised that he couldn’t avoid the world of antiques. He said in a past interview, “It is in my blood, without question. I love antiques, collectables and history. The job that we do is different every day, different people and different stories. It’s a magic job.”
