A TV antiques show will be heading to Somerset next week - finding some unusual experiences alongside some vintage treasures.

From Monday (September 23) to Friday next week, antiques experts Arusha ‘Roo’ Irvine and Angus Ashworth will kick off a new episode of Antiques Road Trip in a stately, yet elderly, Rolls Royce - heading to Northern Ireland, Wales and the West Country, including Somerset, in search of interesting artefacts.

During their trip, the pair hunt out hidden gems to compete to make the most money at auction.

But as well as visiting local antique shops they also visit historic and cultural sites.

In Somerset, Roo comes face to face with Exmoor’s equine inhabitants, while Angus heads to Plymouth to discover the turbulent history of gin, before having a go as a Master Distiller.

The journey ends back in Somerset, for the final auction, in Clevedon.

John Redshaw, series producer at STV Productions, said: “Our much loved antiques experts are back on the road for the 19th series, 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 airs at 4.30pm, Monday to Friday, on BBC1.
