STV Productions to make clearout show for Really and STV

Glasgow-based STV Productions has been co-commissioned by broadcasters Discovery-owned Really and STV to produce a new “heart-warming” series.

The newly created format – titled Clear Out Cash In – follows Yorkshire auctioneer Angus Ashworth and his team as they clear out houses full of trinkets, treasure and junk, “transforming former family homes to empty shells, ready for sale”.

The items of value go to auction, with profits going to the owner, and the rest are recycled or taken to the tip. Ashworth may also uncover some heirlooms the family can’t part with, whatever their value, and hear stories behind these.
