Posh Pawn is back. AND it’s bigger, better and posher than ever.
High-end pawnbroker James Constantinou and his charismatic team return for a new series, starting tonight at 8pm on Channel 4.
If you can wear it, ride it, sail it or play it, Posh Pawn has got it covered.
The world of high-end pawnbroking is revealed with unprecedented access to the industry’s experts and extraordinary clients. With unimaginable and hugely valuable items bursting through the doors, the series reveals that, when it comes to upmarket pawn, everyone has a story to tell.
James is joined by right-hand woman Jo, who doesn’t hold any punches, Patrick, who’ll go to great lengths to find the best deal, and memorabilia expert Lawrence, who knows the nostalgic from the nonsense. Plus, with business booming, there are new team members Alicja, Michael and Joy.
But just how valuable are these valuables? That remains the big question for Prestige. For some lucky clients it’s life-changing news as their precious items are worth jaw-dropping sums. But big sums also mean big risks and clients sometimes struggle to pay back their loans, risking losing their beloved possessions.
In episode 1, James comes face to face with rare items that are allegedly from Arctic explorer Ernest Shackleton’s expeditions. A colourful Soho legend wants to sell some vintage Chanel bags to finance botox and a new bathroom, and James takes his assistant Jo out for a terrifying test drive in a client’s Porsche – but can he complete the £35,000 loan after discovering a problem?
