David Dickinson’s afternoon talk show The David Dickinson Show has been axed by ITV according to The Sun.
The show was aired with ten daily episodes in May but general feed back was not good. Part of the focus of the programme was David interviewing guests and there was also a quiz where contestants were asked to guess the value of antiques which is where his main strength lies. Although the show was a flop, ITV supports Dickinson’s Real Deal which has been on air with ITV since 2006. David was also the first presenter for Bargain Hunt before Tim Wonnacott took over as presenter in 2003.
It is obviously with antiques that the country associate David Dickinson most, and the enduring popularity of Dickinson’s Real Deal is a testament to him not only as an antique dealer but also as a presenter of antiques related programmes. His flamboyant style, dress sense, catch phrases like ‘cheap as chips’ and an impressive knowledge of antiques based on his 30 year experience in the trade have made him a household name.
The endurance of programmes such as Antiques Roadshow, Bargain Hunt and now Dickinson’s Real Deal shows how popular, important and valued antiques are generally to the people of Britain and knowledgeable experts like David Dickinson retain their popularity on the back of this.
Reputable antique dealers will always provide those interested in antiques with reliable advice and background information. When looking for antique desks, dining chairs and antique dining tables , Preston and the surrounding areas offer many choices in antique furniture.
