auctioneer John Cameron is taking on fellow Cash in the Attic star Jonty Hearnden in Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is Portsmouth special.

The BBC TV series involves antiques experts trying to make a profit on items they’ve bought at antique venues with the profit going to charity.

They will raise money for Wave 105 Cash for Kids which supports disadvantaged children and young people.

John, who was born in Portsmouth, said: ‘I chose Cash for Kids as while being a national charity they distribute the money within the regions it is raised. Working with Jonty was a real challenge as he is an experienced dealer and with me being an auctioneer who only sells from the rostrum he had the upper edge. There was also bragging rights at stake with us both being experts from Cash in the Attic.’

The show is on BBC1 every day this week at 4.30pm.
