Do you have an eye for antiques and enjoy going to auctions? Do you know the difference between a piece of Clarice Cliff and some Moorcroft?

Well here's your chance to make some serious money.

The BBC are looking for enthusiastic amateurs who would like to try their luck in learning to be an antiques dealer and take part in its exciting new series, Make Me a Dealer.

'Antiques expert Paul Martin will be on hand to advise participants and teach them some tricks of the trade to help them identify items which they can hopefully sell for a good profit,' says a spokesperson for the series.
