Bargain Hunt viewers branded scenes on the BBC One show 'scandalous' after an item was controversially disqualified.The hit show took two teams out to Exeter's Westpoint Arena in an episode which aired in March.

Host Natasha Raskin Sharp introduced the red and blue teams, who were tasked with finding an item which matched a specific criteria.The blue team was made up of mother and son duo Ann and James, who had to find a maritime object, while the red team consisted friends Lisa and Helen, who had to find an agricultural item.

The blue team purchased a menu holder form a shipping liner for a staggering £70. Elsewhere, the reds found a mole spade, setting them back by £18.

The reds, as well as their expert Phillip Serrell, believed the spade was made for digging out moles, which would have fitted their chosen category perfectly.
