Cash in the Attic is a British television show on the BBC. The show premiered in 2002. The programme's tagline was The show that helps you find hidden treasures in your home, and then sells them for you at auction. The show aired its final episode in May 2012.

Format

In the show, the presenter visited a family's house to find out what they need to raise money for. They then explored the house and its surroundings, finding antiques and valuing them, with the help of experts. The family then goes to auction with the aim of making their financial target. The auction never takes place on the same day as the rummage; often it can take place several weeks later.

Cash in the Celebrity Attic

In celebrity episodes, the well-known guest contributors rummaged around their homes for antiques to be valued and sold at auction. The celebrity donates the proceeds to his or her charity of choice. As of February 2010, 86 episodes have been made and a total of £91,266 has been raised for charities in the UK and abroad.
