Rod Stewart's wife Penny Lancaster and Loose Women presenter Andrea McLean were filmed at Keys auctioneers and valuers in Aylsham in the summer.

They were joined for an episode of the series by experts Tim Medhurst and David Harper.

The programme will be broadcast on Wednesday, November 27 at 7pm.

The series sees celebrities joined by experts as they set off on a road trip searching for treasures and competing to make the most money at auction.

Penny, a Strictly Come Dancing star who is a keen antiques collector, found the time to pick up a present for her hubby during the filming, while Andrea was making her first foray into the world of antiques.

The pair bought their items in various locations in Essex before heading to Aylsham to try and make a profit at one of Keys' monthly antiques and interiors sales.

Tracey Rust-Andrews, associate director at Keys, said, "It was great fun hosting the programme, and it's always good to see regional auction houses getting national exposure. We are, of course, sworn to secrecy about how the two celebrities fared at the auction. People will have to watch the programme to find out."

During the 59-minute episode, Andrea also discovers the Second World War story of the Cockleshell Heroes and Penny gets some hands-on restraint training from Essex police.

Earlier this month, another episode in the series was aired featuring comedian Phill Jupitus and John Cooper Clarke searching for treasures in Norfolk to make the most money at auction.

They visited Cornucopia at the former Corn Hall in Harleston, and were helped by antiques dealer Stephanie Connell and auctioneer James Braxton.

That episode aired on November 19. It also featured a look at the Norwich School of 19th century artists with Phill having a watercolour lesson on the Norfolk Broads. And John got to the bottom of just why in some parts of Suffolk and Norfolk a little dancing doll might earn you a free pint of beer.
