Bargain Hunt: Barking Hunt (BBC One, June 14, 2024)

Bargain Hunt Dog Special

For the first time, Bargain Hunt combines animals and antiques in a unique pet-themed special, airing on BBC One on Friday 14 June, to commemorate the RSPCA’s 200th anniversary. The red and blue teams, accompanied by their dogs, don miniature Bargain Hunt fleeces as they embark on a bargain hunt at the Shepton Mallet antiques fair in Somerset. Presenter Christina Trevanion takes the lead, while experts Caroline Hawley and Thomas Forrester attempt to maintain order among the teams and their pets.

On the red team, Matt and Georgie bring their spaniel, Sprocket, who quickly decides she needs a break and opts for a ‘paws’-itive lie-down. Meanwhile, the blue team’s Val and Rachael have high hopes for their Jack Russell, Jack, who showcases his agility skills. They’re counting on him to help find a unique piece of ‘bone’ china for their challenge.

The teams then head to Chippenham, where auctioneer Tim Weeks introduces his collie, Roxy, before taking the rostrum to auction off their lots. In this episode, the competition isn’t just about the golden gavel; the pets are also vying for a special prize—a golden bone!
