Jamie Breese from "Auction Kings" stars in the Discovery Channel reality docu-series.

Jamie Breese has a reputation as a young and cheeky, antiques, collectables, celeb memorabilia and "de-clutter" presenter and expert. He has been a presenter on British network shows for over a decade, including BBC2's "The Life Laundry" and "The Antiques Show," ITV1's "This Morning" and "Everything Must Go!" and a weekly slot on GMTV. He has written hundreds of informative magazine articles and a two books: "Make a Mint!: The Ultimate Guide to Buying and Selling Collectables" (2007) and "The Haynes Collectables Manual" (2009), as well as national newspaper columns for nine years at The Sunday Mirror and for one year at The Daily Mail. He is also a consultant and writer for BBC Homes & Antiques and was the appointed collectables spokesperson for eBay.co.uk in 2007.

Breese's antiques background stems from his family who operated from London's famous Portobello Road. As a teenager he set out on his own at Camden Stables market.

After achieving a first class honours in Art and Design, his TV break came with BBC2's primetime series "The Antiques Show." He went on to present for Channel 4's "Collectors' Lot" and HTV/Meridian's "Antiques Trail" and "Trade-It." He was the weekly collectables expert on Five's "Breakfast News." Numerous other stints have included BBC1's flagships "The Generation Game" and "Blue Peter."

Jamie is perhaps best known though for ITV1's "Everything Must Go!" The series features families selling up and moving on. Jamie hosts, appraises their worldly goods and helps sell them in a madcap house sale and, later, an auction. He previously co-presented BBC2's primetime series "The Life Laundry" and has added "clutter-busting" to his skills. In this series Jamie helped individuals deal with hoarding issues. Jamie also co-devised and hosted the regular 23-minute live slot "Cash or Trash" on ITV1's "This Morning."

For eight years, Jamie has been penning the weekly antiques column "Treasure Hunters" for The Sunday Mirror. He is a writer for BBC Homes & Antiques and Antiques and Collectables Magazine. He also writes for Woman's Weekly, Moneywise, Moneyweek, Prudential, Yours, Chat and Heyday magazines. He has written for numerous other papers, magazines and websites and is an auctioneer/judge at charity events. He judged Corgi's 50th Anniversary Ultimate Collector Competition and wrote/fronted eBay's "eBay Your Streets," "Hidden Treasures" and "2007 Xmas Investment Gifts" campaigns. Jamie is a general expert with many special interests including eBay, celeb, rock and pop and film memorabilia.

Prior to The Mirror he was the antiques expert for The Daily Mail with the successful weekly column "Treasure Seekers," and a dynamic weekly competition, which he devised, called "TV Treasure Hunt."

Jamie's other specialist interests include history, filmmaking and film reviews: an area in which he has an active involvement with several credits as writer, producer and director. He has presented the four-part filmmaking series "Brief Encounters" and film reviews for "The List," both for ITV West. In 2008, Jamie hosted four fashion shows including "Miss England: Miss Bath" and "The Bath Fashion Show." He also organizes networking events and fashion shows — "The First Fling" being his first.

Jamie has written, produced and directed a film drama about Germany between WWI and WWII. "Benjamin's Struggle" had its world premiere at BAFTA in March 2006, won a key Audience Award and was chosen by the British Council to represent British Culture Worldwide. Jamie also participated in FOX's reality film directing competition series "On the Lot." He now has a deal with DreamWorks SKG.
