Who is Charlie Ross?

Charlie, or “Rosco” as he’s known, is a 69-year-old antiques expert, television presenter and auctioneer. He was born in June 1950 in Buckinghamshire, England.

After joining an estate agency in 1968, Charlie quickly found himself with the role of auctioneer. In fact, one of his first jobs was auctioning chickens and turkeys while there. For what reason? We still have that to figure out.

Shortly after, Charlie commenced his own auctioneering business. He ran his own auction house in Woburn for over 25 years and has overseen auctions ranging from antiques, commercial and residential properties, through to vintage cars and Intellectual Property.

Who is Charlie married to?

Charlie is married to Sally Ross. Together they have two children called Charlotte and Oliver.

They had four grandchildren by 2007, but given the interview Charlie gave on the BBC a decade later, it sounds like the Ross family has expanded. Charlie claimed he was “collecting” grandchildren!

The couple live near Bicester outside Oxford. They have lived there since 1981.
