Long-running ratings success Antiques Road Trip is back on the road as Britain’s favourite experts compete to make the most money at auction. The new series will air weekdays at 1630 on BBC One from Monday 6th January.

With a starting fund of £200 each, five pairs of rival antiquers go head-to-head to seek out hidden gems and make a profit at auction. Driving the length and breadth of the country in an array of classic cars, the competing experts visit local antique shops as well as historic and cultural sites to learn about the little-known stories behind some of the greatest events in British history.

Across the series, viewers will follow the ten experts in their quest to make the most profit, with tense auctions and peculiar finds keeping the viewers guessing who will come out on top.

John Redshaw, series producer at STV Productions, said: “Our much loved antiques experts are back on the road, searching high and low for weird and wonderful antiques. We hope that both fans and new viewers will tune in to this hugely popular show, which as always is full of laughs, friendly rivalries and lots of great characters.”

Antiques Road Trip – now in its 20th series – has been hugely popular with BBC audiences and celebrates its 500th episode during this series.  Antiques Road Trip is produced by STV Productions.
