  1. I also would like to know why Thomas has changed his surname
    Not that it makes a difference to what he does or how we enjoy him but its a curiosity and we are generally nosy lol

      1. Why has Thomas Plant changed his name?

        Thomas Plant has changed his name to Thomas Forrester, which came as a surprise to many of his viewers. The leading theory for Thomas’s name change was that he married Jessica Forrester reputedly in 2018 and took her name. His spouse was previously listed as TV personality Angela Plant with whom he has twin daughters born 2009 according to the Oxford Mail article dated February 2010.The article at that time referred to Mr Plant, 35, having lived in Cowley, Berkshire with his wife, Angela, for four years and having 11-month-old twins.

        Along with his friend, Neil Shuttleworth, Thomas went in for a phased take over of Special Auction Services in 2006 becoming business partners Thomas is now Director and Auctioneer. Given that so many enquirers were after a concrete answer, Special Auction Services rather unhelpfully addressed the issue on December 14th, 2018.They tweeted: “Thomas has been Thomas Forrester for some time now so to avoid any further confusion he decided it was high time his details were updated. Of course, those of you who know him as Thomas Plant will always call him as such, for the avoidance of doubt he is in fact one and the same!”

        Jessica and Thomas Forrester:

        There has been no confirmation that the two are actually married, or even together. Jessica Forrester works for Special Auction Services as an auctioneer and auction manager. She also heads up the HR and staffing for the firm. Jessica has a master’s degree in arts Market Appraisal and is a Fellow of the National Association of Valuers and Auctioneers.

  2. Hello. Please please can someone tell all of us why Thomas has two surnames. Plant and Forrester.

    Someone must know the answer.

  3. I too am wondering why Thomas has suddenly changed his name to Forrester. He is well known as Plant, surely this will be a drawback for him.

  4. Me too. Anita Manning introduced Thomas Forrester and I said never heard of him and then it transpires that Thomas Forrester turns out to be Thomas Plant. Anita even named him Thomas Plant during her chat with the auctioneer! Has wee Thomas become a victim of actors guild naming rights or something.

  5. Can someone please explain to me why when I see Thomas on Bargain Hunt why he has two different surnames which are Forrester and Plant I’m really confused.

  6. Asking the same question as others on here…why has Thomas Plant changed his name to Thomas Forrester? No explanation, no nothing!

  7. Thomas Plant & Thomas Forrester of Bargain Hunt appear to look like twins – is there a connection please?

  8. Hello my name is Angela, and what your mother and I have in common are son’s both called Thomas Plant.
    So when ever I see and hear your name on TV I think of my son.
    A great name .
