John developed an interest in antiques when he started working in his father’s antique shop in Beverley.

The 67-year-old played forward as a professional footballer and represented Hull City, Leeds United, Arsenal and Leyton Orient to name a few clubs.

Once he stopped playing, he went on to work as a football coach for Nottingham Forest.

He brought his football career to an end with Scunthorpe United, leaving the club in 1986.

Worlds away from his football days, he is dedicated to the auctioneering business.

The couple’s website says: “From the first auction in 2001 we have tried to maintain an Independent auction house in Yorkshire with the highest possible integrity.

“We sustain old fashioned values but keep up to date with the modern-day technological advances that are a vital part of the industry and which enable us to be both local and global at the same time.

“John started working in his father’s antique shop in Beverley in 1966.

“He had some time off for bad behaviour but returned full time in 1986 and has been dealing and now auctioneering and valuing since then.”

John was born in Patrington and first played as a professional footballer in 1972.

His first team was Hull City before he made the switch to Leeds United in 1978.

He scored 16 goals for the team in a total of 33 appearances.

Arsenal’s official website features a blog post on the football legend, Called John Hawley: Life Saver.

He stepped in whilst playing for Bradford City, when the Bradford stand caught fire and killed 56 people in 1985.

At the time he said: “I didn’t think it was anything major.

“It just looked like some idiot had let off a smoke bomb.

“Even when the referee stopped things, it still looked to be innocuous.

“I even went to the crowd and said, ‘Calm down, calm down’. But just 30 seconds later, I was picking the first person up and throwing him over my shoulder.”

Caroline is on social media but she has not shared much insight into her personal life with her husband.

Instead, her Twitter profile is dedicated to her work, both on and off TV.

Bargain Hunt airs on weekdays on BBC One at 12.15pm
