Channel 4 are set to axe The Greatest Auction after one series, TV Zone understands. This comes after the application page for a "possible" second series was removed from its website earlier this year.

When approached, a Channel 4 spokesperson told TV Zone: "The Greatest Auction aired last year and is just one of the many brilliant factual programmes available to stream now, for free, on Channel 4." They did not elaborate on whether the programme would return.

The series, which was presented by AJ Odudu, was a fresh take on the world of auctions showcasing the most extraordinary items, the most fascinating backstories and the fast-paced thrill of the auction room will be brought together.

In a specially created auction arena, the auctioneer held court as they sell some of the rarest, most valuable and most unique objects seen on television. Items will be valued by a specialist team of appraisers – but in a surprising twist, the valuation will only be heard by the viewer.

The owner must wait till they enter the auction to find out what their item could potentially be worth.

Alongside a regular roster of some of the most knowledgeable antiques buyers and collectors in the country, viewers were treated to the thrills of the auction room and the stories behind some of the most sentimental and interesting objects in the UK.

The Greatest Auction is available now on Channel 4.
