Across Britain, behind the doors of homes of all shapes and sizes lay astonishing hoards of potential treasures from extraordinary owners who have filled their homes with items they’ve acquired, curated, or obsessively collected. But, as they’re faced with challenging times, will a valuable item amongst their collections unlock a life-changing sum of money?
On Millionaire Hoarders (3×60) 141 Productions and Channel 4 are bringing together four experts in the world of antiques and collectables to sift through homes packed full of potential to unearth items that could raise life- changing sums of cash for their owners.
Guided by their wealth of experience, keen eyes, and contacts, the experts — Clive Downham (Antiques Dealer), Paula Sutton (Vintage Fashion and Interiors), Rachel Fox (High-end Pawnbroker) and Ronnie Archer-Morgan (Collectables & Curiosities) – will search through every hidden nook and cranny of these homes to reveal the untold stories behind forgotten possessions and sell them for much needed funds. But will the hoards deliver the goods? And can these fanatical collectors bear to part with their beloved possessions if it means accessing the vital funds they need?
Hannah Brownhill, Joint Creative Director of 141 Productions, said, “There’s nothing more exciting than unearthing treasure…especially when it’s found somewhere completely unexpected. Our experts have loved digging through collections in homes that range from one bed studios to family castles. We’ve met some fascinating people and uncovered some incredible finds.”
Anna Miralis, Senior Commissioning Editor for Channel 4 Factual added,. “Everyone dreams of finding hidden treasure that could potentially change their lives. Our team of experts have an extraordinary wealth of experience and offer up the exciting opportunity to make that a reality.”
Millionaire Hoarders was commissioned for Channel 4 by Anna Miralis, Senior Commissioning Editor Factual. It is executive produced by Bella Newnham and Hannah Brownhill for 141 Productions. The series will be distributed by All3Media International.
