CASH IN THE ATTIC REVIVED BY CHANNEL 5 WITH NEW HOST CHRIS KAMARA

The show that turns hidden treasures into cash and viewers' dreams into reality is set to return to screens for the first time since 2012.



The daytime favourite originally ran on BBC One between 2002 and 2012, with over 500 episodes broadcast.



Chris Kamara will be the face of the refreshed series, with original host Jules Hudson returning as co-host.


Chris Kamara said: "I’m looking forward to helping people turn their old stuff into some unbelievable cash."



Jules said: "I’m really excited and very proud to be returning to host Cash In The Attic. I can’t wait to get back into attics and auction rooms across the country, helping our viewers raise some welcome extra funds to make their dreams come true...


"The series was a firm favourite the first time around, and I’m sure its return will be welcomed once again, nearly a decade after it left our screens."



A Channel 5 source told The Sun: "Of course, Kammy brings his own charm to proceedings, but fans of the original show will find lots that they recognise in the new version."


The series is set to air on Channel 5 later in 2022. Applications for the series are now open and people can apply by emailing cashintheattic@studioleo.tv or calling 07704 600331.



Claire Collinson-Jones, Chief Creative Officer at Studio Leo and Executive Producer commented: “Since this iconic format was last on UK screens, there’s been an explosion of interest in collectibles, antiques and online auctions. We’re thrilled Cash In The Attic has found a new home on Channel 5. It’s a reboot that couldn’t be more timely.”


Commissioning Editor (VP) Factual Guy Davies said: “Cash in the Attic is a classic and will make a great addition to our new ramped up daytime schedule, following another successful revival in Eggheads.”
