    read an article on the bt news site that early this month suspended bargain hunt presenter tim wonocott took a fee at a charity auction for sick children Now the under-fire presenter was the celebrity auctioneer for 120 sculptures of Shaun the Sheep when the flock went under he hammer on Thursday October 8 at The Mall, Cribbs Causeway.. he the sick greedy man defended himself and “I absolutely believe in this affair. It’s been an extraordinary experience and a wonderful way of raising money for the charity, and for me it’s something that is important.“It is an important part of my calendar, and I’m delighted to have been asked to take part.”Money raised from sales of the London sculptures will go to the Wallace & Gromit Children’s Charity, which supports children in hospitals across the country. i think it shocking that he would be paid for charity he should have offered his services for free, i hope he is sacked from the bbc and never presents bargain hunt again or other shows on bbc, i cannot stand him never did more so after this.

    Do you think lawyers, accountants, builders, PR men, fundraisers, shop managers etc don't get paid for working for charities.

    Why shouldn't TV presenters working as auctioneers?

    I am presuming that the charity approached and commissioned him to do the auctioneering with the booking fee on offer. It would have been generous for him to have waived the payment but I do not think he was wrong to accept it.
