Celebrity Antiques Road Trip 2019 is currently airing on BBC Two – here’s all you need to know.
The ninth series of Celebrity Antiques Road Trip airs on BBC Two from Monday 7 October at 7PM.
The series follows a great line-up of famous faces from stage, screen, comedy, music, sport and the media as they hunt for hidden gems in a bid to make the biggest profit buying and selling antiques.
In each episode, the two competing celebrities put their knowledge and bartering skills to the test, as they set out with £400 and a classic car to find antique bargains and make the biggest profit by selling them at auction, with all final profits donated to BBC’s Children in Need.
Helping the celebrities will be the show’s regular antiques experts, on hand to provide guidance about the world of antiques.

Of almost 200 items bought and sold, this series features the widest selection of antiques seen on Celebrity Antiques Road Trip with everything from Chinese silver sugar tongs to African soapstone sculptures, quality Scandinavian jewellery, vibrant German pottery, porcelain parrots and a wooden rocking horse.
During the series, a few celebrities let their hearts overrule their heads when picking the most valuable hidden gems to take to auction.
John Redshaw, Series Producer at programme makers STV Productions, said: “It’s always exciting to hit the road with a new set of celebrities, and this series is no exception.
« We have a brilliant line-up of competing stars going head to head on the antiques trail and I think viewers will love following their road trips as they track down weird and wonderful bargains in antique shops around the country.
“Some of the more profitable buys include a 200-year old love letter illustrated with watercolour images spotted by Robert Llewellyn which achieves a pretty penny at auction.
« The discovery of a Chinese Ming dynasty terracotta figure really bolsters Steve Brown’s profits and the prize for the most unlikely item goes to Gemma Oaten who buys a life-size donkey, which proves to be no one-trick pony as the profits gallop in.”
Celebrity Antiques Road Trip airs Mondays at 7PM on BBC Two.
