David Dickinson Career, What is his profession?

Dickinson made his television debut in 1998 after an accidental encounter with a TV producer at a BBQ that resulted in a two-part BBC documentary about him and his preparation for an Olympia performance. The spectators were instantly drawn in by his dark complexion (commonly thought to be a false tan, but he claims it is due to his Armenian origin) and several catchphrases. Dickinson first gained popularity as a respected authority on antiques on This Morning and BBC Two’s The Antiques Show.

His big break as a television star came from hosting the lunchtime episodes of Bargain Hunt on BBC One, which developed a devoted following among viewers during the day, notably students. Following the success of the daytime show, Bargain Hunt was aired in primetime every night for a while. In 2003, Dickinson quit hosting the daytime version of Bargain Hunt in favor of Tim Wonnacott.

Dickinson continued to host the show’s primetime, celebrity, and holiday editions. Later, in 2005, he hosted the reality program Dealing With Dickinson on BBC One, which was canceled after just one season. After the Bargain Hunt primetime episodes were canceled, Dickinson departed the BBC.


Dickinson relocated to ITV in 2006 to host Dickinson’s Real Deal, a new daytime antiques program that airs on weekday afternoons. Episodes from the past are frequently rerun. The show travels to different parts of the UK and invites viewers to stop by and sell their antiques and collectibles for appraisal by an antique dealer who might then make a cash offer to purchase the item. If the dealer’s offer is turned down or no offers are made to purchase the item, the participants may also decide to take a chance and sell the item at auction.

If the object doesn’t sell for more than the dealer is willing to provide or doesn’t satisfy the reserve, the participant runs the danger of accepting a lower price. Dickinson’s role as a mediator is to assist the sellers in negotiating the best pricing with the dealers or assisting them in deciding whether to reject the offer and place the item up for auction. ITV began airing 10 episodes of the celebrity variety show The David Dickinson Show on May 17, 2010. He performed David Dickinson’s Name Your Price for ITV in 2017.
