This has posed further challenges for the team: “Of course, it’s a lot easier if you’re face-to-face with somebody in the auction to go up to them afterwards and say, ‘Do you mind being on Homes Under the Hammer?’
“And then they’re likely to say, ‘Well, I don’t know, what’s it like?’ And then you’ve got a team from the production house, who will be able to explain.
“If it’s the auctioneer, who’s having to say, ‘Would you mind being a Home Under the Hammer? I think if they said, ‘No’, that would probably be it.”
Homes Under the Hammer airs weekdays on BBC One at 10am.
