Homes Under The Hammer celebrity specials lined up and when to watch them
Regular hosts on Homes Under The Hammer are Martin Roberts, Martel Maxwell, Dionne Dublin, Jackie Joseph and Tommy Walsh.
The BBC series shows experts revealing “the various tricks of the property auction trade” as they look at the homes up for auction and the transformations they undergo.
The long-running show was first broadcast on BBC One on 17 November 2003, and since then the presenters have traveled across the UK visiting a large number of property auctions.
Across several episodes, two of which will air on November 17 – the show’s 20th anniversary, a number of celebrities will appear as special guests to share their insights into property renovations.
Each of the five episodes will feature a famous host, a new property, and an unforgettable moment from the archives.
I don’t want to start too much rumour, but just to say that we’re putting the finishing touches on something very exciting to celebrate the amazing 20th anniversary of Homes Under the Hammer in November. Watch this space ❤️❤️❤️ pic.twitter.com/Nv3bMRQdUa
