Philip Martyn Serrell (born 27 March 1954)[1] is an English auctioneer, antiques expert and television presenter. He has become a familiar face, especially on various BBC TV antiques programmes.

Early life[edit]

Serrell was born in Kidderminster, Worcestershire and attended the Royal Grammar School in Worcester, where he was a schoolmate of the Pakistani cricket captain Imran Khan. Serrell played both cricket and rugby for the school, prior to his attendance at, and graduation from, Loughborough College of Physical Education as a physical education teacher.[2][3][4]


Dissatisfied as a teacher, Serrell changed careers to become an auctioneer, working in the local livestock trade until qualifying as a Chartered Surveyor in 1988, specialising in fine art and antiques.[2]

Serrell owns an auctioneers and valuers firm with offices in Worcester and a salesroom in Great Malvern, established in 1995.[5] He is a regular expert on the BBC series Bargain Hunt and Flog It! and has also made a couple of appearances on ITV's Dickinson's Real Deal. He has also featured on other BBC series Antiques Road Trip and Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is (where he is light-heartedly billed as Phil "The Fox" Serrell).

He has regularly appeared on BBC Local Radio, and has also written a biweekly column for the Worcester News.

Personal life[edit]

Married, he lives in Worcester with his wife. Serrell is an avid collector, living in a "house full of tat". He is a fan of Aston Martin cars.
