POPULAR BBC TV show Antiques Road Trip will be stopping off in Chester in the search for hidden treasures.
The TV programme, which sees top antique experts competing against each other as they travel in vintage cars across the most beautiful parts of Britain, trading and selling antiques from all over the country, will return to screens at the beginning of January.
The well-known antiques specialists Mark Stacey and Charlie Ross will drive across the UK, including to Chester and Frodsham, to search for antiques in a quest to make a profit and win the competition.
The original team of experts who include Anita Manning, David Marby and James Braxton will this time be joined by newcomers Jonathan Pratt, Charlie Ross, Kate Bliss and Thomas Plant, and all will work in pairs to find, trade and sell antiques across the UK, with the aim of increasing profits from a £200 starting budget. The overall winner will be crowned by antiques legend Tim Wonnacott at the end of the series.
Tim Wonnacott said: “The new episodes have grown into 45 fun packed minutes that allow tantalising glimpses of scenic Britain, drawing together antiques literally from across all the far corners of the nation. This show simply gets better and better.”
The six week long episode run will begin on BBC2 on 3 January at 5.15pm.
