Bunny Campione (born Carolyn Elizabeth Fisher[1]) is known for her many appearances on the long running BBC television programme Antiques Roadshow,[2] on which she has appeared for over 20 years.

She became known as 'Bunny' as a young child after she was given a coat that had a hood with rabbit ears on it and she later collected soft toy rabbits. She studied at university in France and worked at the Bear Lane Gallery in Oxford for a year.[3] She then worked at Sotheby's for 23 years gaining a wide knowledge of antiques firstly in the furniture department and then the collectors' department.[4]

She was a senior consultant to Christie's, London until 2001. She lives on the Essex/Suffolk border with her husband Iain Grahame (born Iain Claverhouse) whom she married on 7 July 2002. She runs her own company, Campione Fine Art, buying and selling antiques on behalf of clients. She has a particular interest in, and knowledge of, automata, bird-cages, corkscrews, dolls, dolls' houses, miniature and early furniture, and soft toys.[5]

Her uncle was English film actor Stewart Granger, the brother of her mother Iris.[6]
