Who is Izzie?

Isabel “Izzie” Balmer is a 32-year-old auctioneer from Quarndon, Derbyshire. She is living and working as a head valuer at the Wessex Auction Rooms in Wiltshire.

In September 2019, she told Stylist magazine about how she ended up in the profession. Izzie said:

First Look: New Season of Sister Wives!

After I finished my degree I had no money, no job and nowhere to live. So I did some work experience at the local auction house [and went from there].

It is unconfirmed what degree Izzie Balmer studied but since she joined the valuation game, she has obtained two Diplomas from the Gemmological Association. It’s no surprise then that Izzie’s main love is jewellery and gems!

Izzie Balmer on Antiques Road Trip

Izzie is back on series 22 of Antiques Road Trip.

She previously joined the cast for series 19 of Celebrity Antiques Road Trip and certainly made an impression.

At the time (2019), this was the first season that Izzie has presented the celebrity spin-off of the hit antiques series.

Before she got her start on Antiques Road Trip, you may remember Izzie from another BBC antiques show. In 2017, Izzie was the co-presenter of the second series of Street Auction.

Does she have social media?

Yes!

If you’re a fan of Izzie’s and what to know more of what she’s up to then be sure to follow her on Twitter where she has over 6,000 followers already.

She posts about her favourite finds, auctioneering work and of course, her Antiques Road Trip appearances. Find Izzie @izziebalmer720.

Is Izzie Balmer married?

It’s currently unconfirmed whether Izzie is married or not.

From a scan of her Instagram account, it doesn’t look as though there’s a special someone in her life. Izzie often posts photos of herself with work colleagues and friends to Insta.

However, she could be in a relationship and not want to disclose anything on social media!
