Bargain Hunt: Natasha Raskin-Sharp discusses 'rule breaking'
Ben Cooper has become a regular on our screens over the years on Bargain Hunt as he helps both the red and blue teams make a profit as they sell their antique finds at auction. Today he will go against fellow Bargain Hunt star Charles Hanson as they both aim to win the highest profit for their teams.
Ben has been a part of Bargain Hunt since 2014 and seven years on is still a regular on the series.
Bargain Hunt first aired in 2000 and last year celebrated its 20 years on our screens.
While talking of how he landed a role as part of the experts on the show Ben spoke of how he sold to the show in its “early days”.
He explained: “I first sold to Bargain Hunt in its early days, (also my early days as a dealer) when I had a stand at the Malvern Antiques Fair.

“I had no idea that one day I would be an expert on the show. About five years ago Bargain Hunt came to Leominster, then I first formally met members of the crew.
“To my surprise, I was asked for a screen test and was invited to join the team of experts in September 2014.”
Since joining the long-running series, Ben has since featured alongside the shows main presenters Anita Manning, Charlie Ross, Eric Knowles and Natasha Raskin Sharp.
But what is known of his life away from Bargain Hunt?

He explained: “I am the youngest of four boys, and when growing up my parents always encouraged us to learn, within that learning was antiques.
“As boys, we would be taken to antiques shops and fairs.
“At the age of eight, I was given my first antique, a fob seal which had belonged to my grandmother.
“From then on I was encouraged to collect more (and given many by my Dad!). From that point, my love of antiques began.”
The antique expert has also shared his life away from the screen on his Instagram.
Back in September, he shared a snap from the filming of Bargain Hunt as he joined the red team in hopes of finding them some hidden gems.
He captioned the post: “Hooray! Back filming again with Bargain Hunt.
“Had a great weekend, fab weather, fab teams and an amazing crew as always!”
Bargain Hunt will air today on BBC One from 12.15pm.
