Ishy Khan Antiques Road Trip Expert Has His Shop In London
Ishy Khan is the new expert on Antiques Road Trip. Ishy joined the show with the road trip regular and expert extraordinaire Izzie Balmer.
Antiques Road Trip is a popular television series produced by STV Studios for BBC. The show debuted on BBC Two on March 8, 2010.
It aired on the channel until 2012 and has been shown on BBC One since 2013. The series is not to be confused with Antiques Roadshow.
The program features two antique experts as they go out on a road trip across Britain to buy antiques and collectibles. Later, they put the valuables up for bid in hopes to make a profit.
After the auction, the winner is determined by comparing each expert's profit over five legs after deducting the costs.
The remaining money left in the kitty is donated to charity.
Each leg is a single program, which is usually broadcast from Monday to Friday. Currently, Season 26 is being aired, which landed on February 13, 2023, on BBC One.

Ishy Joins Izzy Balmer This Season On A Roadtrip
While Izzy Balmer is a familiar face on daytime TV, Ishy is a new recruit who joined her in Antiques Road Trip. Both experts are glad to work and compete with each other.
Balmer is a regular cast who joined the show a few years ago, in 2019, during the ninth season. Fans may also remember her for appearing in Bargain Hunt and Antiques Roadshow.
Her passion for antiques ignited when her mom suggested that she should do some work at a local auction house after completing her university studies.
She then enrolled at Birmingham's School of Jewellery and earned a gemmology diploma. Balmer said, "I kind of fell into this job, but I absolutely love it." She also said that she has always been a fan of sparkly things.
With all her dedication and experience, the 33-year-old worked her way up in the industry to become a head auctioneer and valuer at the Wessex Auction rooms in Wiltshire.
Although the Derbyshire native works as a head valuer, she is becoming more and more known for her television roles.
Besides the regular version of the road trip, Balmer has also appeared in the celebrity version.
Before debuting on the show, the antique expert was a part of another BBC program, Street Auction.
Currently, she is joined by new recruit Khan in the show. She expressed her excitement before the episode by sharing a loving picture of herself with Khan on Instagram.
She asked viewers to catch them in the newest episode, which will see the duo drive around the beautiful Lake District in a classic car, getting to know each other and buying a few items.
In another recent post, she marked Khan's fantastic debut. She wrote, "well done Ishy on a fantastic debut and not only that, putting up with my rubbish car chat all day. you deserve a medal!"
