Hungerford Arcade BBC Bargain Hunt

Hungerford Arcade once again played host to the BBC’s Bargain Hunt this week.  They filmed two shows, one in the morning and the other after lunch.  It was as usual, a very happy event loved by staff and customers alike.

The shows were hosted by that “very cheeky chappy”, Charlie Ross and as usual, he caused quite a stir.  Everyone seemed to want to shake his hand and have their photographs taken with him (I was no exception!).  He was such good fun and between filming enjoyed chatting to everyone.

The two experts were TV favourites, David Harper and John Cameron.  They were wonderful with the contestants and made sure they enjoyed themselves.  The Blue Teams and the Red Teams said they were overwhelmed by the choice they had in choosing their items and at first did not know where to start spending the £300 each team was given. This is where the expert’s advice is so invaluable.   However, they did manage it and were more than happy with their purchases and wished they could have kept them for themselves.  You will have to wait until the programmes are aired before you can see what they bought, but we will let you know when they are to be broadcast.
