David Dickinson - My TV Highlights

When Bargain Hunt grew in popularity it was the start of my being invited to guest on all kinds of TV shows including chat shows, panel games and reality TV. (You can learn more about these on the TV Apperarnce by Year page )

I have picked out just a few of my favourites here.

This is Your Life - David Dickinson

It was such a tremendous thrill and a genuine surprise when Michael Aspel popped up at the end of a special Children in Need live transmission of Bargain Hunt in 2002.

While we were still on camera Michael appeared with the old red book and said 'I've got this book which I can offer you at a very reasonable price. It's a first edition of David Dickinson This is your Life.'

It was an amazing experience,and I felt deeply honoured. I was driven straight way to London to record the show, I walked into the studio to find it packed with family and friends. That's an evening I never will forget.


Strictly Come Dancing

I had an amazing time when I was asked to be a contestant on the first series of Strictly Come Dancing in 2004. I had a wonderful partner Camilla Dallerup, she was very patient with me and we developed a lasting friendship.

I particulary enjoyed the drama of the Tango and they had me dancing to Sex Bomb! My love of the 'Jazz Hands' look made for a few laughs and I got to dance at the fantastic Blackpool Ballroom.

I had not anticipated the level of commitment and fitness that would be required, but the upside was that it made me decide to finally stop smoking after forty odd years and I'm proud to say I've never gone back.

I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here

When I was asked to go into the jungle in 2005, everyone advised me against it but I thought 'I'll give it a go' . I didn't go in with a game plan I thought 'I'm just going to go in and be myself and try and be as pleasant as I can and helpful to everybody'

Some people go to a health farm and pay a couple of thousand pounds, but in there I lost more than a stone and had a detox, just a shame the weather was so rainy I was hoping to top up the tan.
