'Take me back!’ Bargain Hunt’s Natasha Raskin Sharp opens up on ‘missing’ TV role


Natasha has fronted a host of auction programmes including Bargain Hunt, Flog It! and Antiques Road Trip. However, the Scottish-born presenter recently told her doting social media followers that she’s missed filming Antiques Road Trip. Will the 36-year-old take part in an upcoming series?

Natasha has been a regular face on the BBC for many years for her presenting roles on antiques-related shows. 

She started her career running an art supply business with her dad Philip Raskin and after Glasgow auction house McTear invited her to sell his work there, she went along and discovered her love of auctions. 

Her flair for antiques has continued and she’s starred in a host of auction-based shows in the UK and USA. 

Perhaps her biggest role to date is starring as the lead expert and lead presenter on BBC’s Bargain Hunt.

“If I’m honest, I’m not ruling it out as a sideline… There’s nothing quite like catering to keep you on your toes!”

Natasha has become a fan favourite on Bargain Hunt and would undoubtedly be missed if she left the show to start a career in catering.

Speaking about her favourite part of the job, Natasha told BBC: “Apart from the sightseeing, I just love meeting the red and blue teams – Bargain Hunt just wouldn’t be the same without the wonderful, bubbly contestants who simply cannot believe that their time to don the fleece has come.”

Natasha is also a DJ on BBC Radio Scotland, however, she didn’t appear on one of her recent slots as she was abroad. 

She tweeted: “I’m in Thailand, which makes live broadcasting a little tricky!”

Natasha passed the baton to her fellow co-star Ravi Sagoo, who presents on his All Night Long programme on the station.

Bargain Hunt is available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
