In 2018, she featured on BBC One’s Street Auction series, which is hosted by Paul Martin and sees people donate unwanted treasures which were then auctioned to raise money to benefit someone within their community.
And Izzie has also featured on Bargain Hunt alongside the shows main presenters Charlie Ross, Eric Knowles, Natasha Raskin Sharp and Anita Manning.
Earlier this week she shared a behind the scenes snap from the filming of Bargain Hunt as the show was set at Wessex Auction Rooms.
She captioned the post: “Whilst @timweeks720 is working hard on the rostrum @wessexauctionrooms filming Bargain Hunt, I’m working equally hard (ahem) posing for shockingly bad photos in front of the Bargain Hunt banners.”
She continued: “This was the best of a terribly bad bunch.”
Izzie started her career in auctioning in 2018 when she joined Wessex Auction Rooms as their Head Valuer.
Izzie specialises in jewellery and has two diplomas from the Gemmological Association Of Great Britain.
In an interview last year Izzie spoke how she first became an auctioneer, saying: “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].”
She also revealed just how ‘exciting’ the job is, explaining: “There are bids flying everywhere on the internet, on the phone, in the room and commissions on the books.”
She added: “There can be a lot of drama and good tension.”
Izzie has also opened up on how the antiques industry is constantly changing and evolving, saying: “There’s always something to learn.
“I speak to people in their 80s [who work in the industry] and they still don’t know it all! It’s part of the joy of it.”
Antiques Road Trip will air on BBC One at 4.30pm.
