CHIPPENHAM auctioneer, Izzie Balmer, featured on the BBC's Antiques Road Trip for the first time today, but may not have got the result she was hoping for.

Izzie, who works at Wessex Auction Rooms, is competing against veteran valuer James Braxton on BBC1 this week as they battle to make the most profit from antiques across the country.

The 30-year-old opted mainly for jewellery, her speciality, as well as a Victorian chair which she fell in love with.

However, her youth and fresh perspective was no match for James Braxton's experience today as he won Monday's episode with £31 profit compared to Izzie's £12.88 loss.

Izzie still has the chance to turn this around after the disappointing start in Tring, as she appears on BBC1 at 4.30pm every day this week.

Today's episode is on BBC iPlayer, or is being shown again on BBC1 at 6am tomorrow morning.

Make sure you tune in to support Izzie!
