The Flog It! team has learned of the very sad passing of David Barby.

One of the series’ longest-serving and best loved antiques experts. David died in hospital in Coventry following a short illness, with his family at his bedside.

David was the expert on the very first episode of Flogit! in January 2002, and has been a stalwart of the show ever since. His sense of fun, gentle personality and great knowledge of and passion for antiques, endeared him to the hundreds of people he worked with and millions of viewers at home.

David was an ambassador for antiques TV and loved every minute spent making the many, many episodes of Bargain Hunt, Flog It!, Antiques Road Trip and more… There will be a fuller tribute to David on this website in due course, but in the meantime we all remember David with great fondness, and send our condolences to his family and many friends in the antique trade and beyond.

  1. A lovely man so sad to hear of his passing. I will miss his sense of humour and his genuine personality, he gave me great pleasure from his roadtrips around the country. My sympathy goes out to his family at this very sad time. He will be greatly missed.

  3. Very sad news, he was a kind and thoughtful man, and always made me smile, even during very sad times. We will miss him very much.
