Paul will be fronting a brand new show on the network called Antiques Showdown where contestants will take part in games as Paul goes head to head with dealers across the country.
Speaking about his new show, he told The Sun: "I was very privileged and honoured to be asked by Channel 5 to front an exciting new antiques programme for them. It's very exciting.
"We have a valuation day in a historic building somewhere around the UK. We try to vary it up and go to different regions, which is quite exciting and nice.
"It's kind of armchair travel for the viewers at home. There's some highs and lows in every show, so it's good, because there's a twist."
He also explained that the production will travel to a stately home as well as other locations such as a museum, town hall and a civic centre.
Members of the public will be able to attend these locations in order to get free evaluations on their attic hidden items.
If they are satisfied with the quote given they could then choose to sell the item to the team, who could either choose to accept or reject the object.
Other segments of the show will see the host battle an expert in the week leading up to the auction.
The daytime presenter has had plenty of experience in hosting other antique shows for the BBC which include the popular show Make Me A Dealer which made its premiere in 2018.
