The show sends antiques experts to accompany celebrities on a road trip around the UK searching for treasures and competing to make the most money at auction
In the programme two antiques experts compete against each other with a budget of £200 to buy antiques and collectibles, that are then sold at auction.
After each auction, the amount in each expert’s kitty after costs are deducted, becomes their budget for the next leg.
The winner is the expert who makes the greater profit over five legs.
The record for the largest profit on a single item is held by Charlie Ross, who in 2012 bought a chipped Staffordshire elephant clock for £8, which was sold at auction for £2,700.
