Rupert Hill, 61, who has been at Concord College for five years, will compete in partnership with his wife Gilly, 58, on April 23 as part of Bargain Hunt’s 58th season.

His boarding group of boys in Bell House at Acton Burnell-based Concord will be able to watch the televised show if they wish to.

The couple, representing the blue team, will be joined by antique experts and presenters in their bargain hunting journey.

For Rupert and Gilly the bargain hunting took place at Shrewsbury’s Agricultural Showground for the purchase of three items which were then auctioned off in Malvern.

Rupert said: “It was good fun although on the day we got soaked in the process of buying the items.

“I think we’re taking away the lesson of haggling and restricting yourselves to what you really like.”

He said the couple enjoyed watching the show and decided to send in an application to take part.

“We had two Zoom interviews and were delighted to be selected to feature,” Rupert added.
