Paul Hayes
Born Morecambe, Lancashire, England
Occupation Antiques expert and television personality

Paul Hayes is an English antiques expert and television personality.



At the age of 19, Hayes followed his father into antiques, his first sale being an old television, and has owned an antiques shop in his hometown of Morecambe since the early 1990s. He began trading Dinky Toys at the age of six.

Hayes has appeared in the BBC's Bargain Hunt, Housecall and Cash in the Attic. He was also appointed by Crimewatch as their resident stolen-antiques expert, and in 2004 he presented the short-lived Star Sale.

Also in 2004, Hayes released a book, titled Cash in the Attic: How to Make Money From Your Forgotten Treasures, on BBC Books.

He is currently presenting a new series of Car Booty on BBC One. In 2005, when Cash in the Attic began occasional hour-long episodes, Hayes filled the role of host for the first half of the show, with regular host Alistair Appleton coming in for a second rummage around the house and the corresponding auction. Appleton nicknamed Hayes "Porcelain Paul", due to his affinity for ceramics.

Hayes' other TV appearances include Ready Steady Cook, Richard & Judy, Trading Treasures, Great Food Live and The Genuine Article.

Personal life

Hayes is married with three children.[1]

As demonstrated in episodes of Cash in the Attic, Hayes is a lover of tea; is a budding pianist; has a fear of snakes; is a fan of Elvis Presley (and even sang a line from "Suspicious Minds"); drives a white 1980s Mercedes-Benz.

Hayes has a stall at the Sunday market in Charnock Richard.[2]
