Bargain Hunts Charles Hanson speaks out after assault charge

Bargain Hunt’s Charles Hanson is reported to have been charged over “seven alleged offences” following a police probe into domestic abuse allegations. The 45-year-old is said to appear in court next month over the offences.

Earlier this year, the TV auctioneer was reported to have moved out of the £1.5 million home he shared with his wife of 13 years, Rebecca.

He was then questioned by police over an alleged domestic row at his address, according to The Sun.

A spokesperson for Derbyshire Police said: “The force was called to reports of a domestic incident at an address in Church Road, Quarndon in June (2023). A man in his 40s was arrested on suspicion of assault and was released on police bail while enquiries continued.

“On 14 December, Charles Hanson was charged with seven alleged offences: Assault/ill treatment/neglect or abandonment of a child/young person to cause unnecessary suffering or injury,” and “assault/ill-treat/neglect/abandon a child/young person to cause unnecessary suffering or injury.”

Hanson has been released on police bail and will appear at Southern Derbyshire Magistrates’ Court on January 10.

Derbyshire Police previously told “The force was called to reports of a domestic incident at an address in Quarndon on June 13.”

The Sun previously reported that Hanson has been “charged” with “seven offences,” including two offences involving “actual bodily harm”. There are also two counts of “assault by beating” and “one of controlling and coercive behaviour”.

A source told the publication about the alleged row: “It is not the sort of place you expect police to turn up. But a car came and they spoke to Charles. It is a tiny village so a few people have been talking.”
