Britain’s best loved antiques experts will put their skills to the test as hit show Antiques Road Trip begins today at 1630 on BBC One.
 
Antiques Road Trip follows the country’s top experts as they battle it out in a search for quirky and valuable antiques to auction off for profit.
 
Travelling across the UK in a fleet of remarkable vintage cars, the experts stop at nothing to seek out those buried treasures and all are determined to make the most profit at auction.
 
Returning for the new series are top antique hunters Paul Laidlaw, Margie Cooper, Charlie Ross, Christina Trevanion, Thomas Plant, Anita Manning, James Braxton and Philip Serrell.
 
With a starting budget of only £200 each, the experts pair up on a picturesque journey through the English and Welsh countryside, visiting antiques shops and local areas of interest, and exploring the country’s rich historical and cultural heritage.
 
Andrew Robertson, executive producer at STV Productions, said: “Antiques Road Trip returns to BBC One screens with its winning combination of factors which make this series a real ratings success.  STV Productions has worked hard to deliver a further 20 episodes for loyal fans across the UK - viewers of the show are in for a real treat.”
 
This is the ninth series of Antiques Road Trip which has been hugely popular with BBC audiences, attracting audiences of up to 2.9 million viewers.
