Bargain Hunt auctioneer Charles Hanson has pleaded not guilty to charges of assault and coercive behaviour.

Hanson, 45, is accused of assault occasioning actual bodily harm between 13 and 17 May 2020 and engaging in controlling or coercive behaviour between May 2015 and June 2023.

The television personality, who has also appeared on Flog It! and Antiques Road Trip, appeared at Southern Derbyshire Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday for a short hearing in front of District Judge Andrew Meachin.

Judge Meachin said the charges were “wholly unsuitable” for trial at the magistrates’ court and sent the case to Derby Crown Court.

Hanson was bailed to appear there on 7 February.

The auctioneer, who gave his address as Ashbourne Road in Mackworth, Derby, stood with his hands clasped throughout the hearing and spoke only to confirm his date of birth and enter his not guilty pleas.
