LONDON.- Tamara Beckwith, co-owner of The Little Black Gallery, has joined as one of the new ‘dealers’ on Channel 4’s hugely popular Four Rooms show, which returns for a third series in the spring 2013.

Presented by Anita Rani, Four Rooms returns to our screens with 12 of the UK’s biggest wheeler dealers, 30 brand new episodes and a new home within daytime. Joining original dealers Celia Sawyer and Gordon Watson are a host of 10 new experts who will be rotated throughout the series, including Tamara Beckwith, co-owner of The Little Black Gallery, and Raj Bisram, owner of Bentley’s Fine Art and Antiques Auction House.

Series Three will see members of the public once again enter the show’s famous Four Rooms to sell a prized possession. They come face to face with the country’s leading dealers, experts in their field who will stop at nothing in their quest to purchase stunning, iconic, unusual or macabre items.

Once negotiations have taken place, the would-be sellers must decide whether they want to accept the dealer’s offer or move on to the next room. But the seller must hold their nerve, for once they reject a bid from a dealer, the offer is off the table forever. Can the sellers play hardball and walk away with a life changing amount of money or will they cave and accept the first deal they are offered?

With nail-biting moments of pure tension, Four Rooms has become a cult phenomenon, winning over an army of loyal viewers. Previous shows have showcased remarkable collectibles and stories which saw the brave owner of Francis Bacon’s paint brushes turn down an offer of £15,000, only to reach £17,500 in another of the show’s Four Rooms. When a seller brought in an original piece of artwork created by the movie star Marlon Brando they expected it to reach £1,000 but went home with £5,000. Another seller who held their nerve with the dealers and reaped the rewards was the lady who rescued the tiles from the Beatles ‘Abbey Road’ album cover before they were turned to rubble, receiving £7,000 for her trouble.
