Antiques Roadshow fans shocked as ITV quiz host makes surprise appearance – but all is not what it seems

ANTIQUES Roadshow fans were left shocked after an ITV quiz host made a surprise appearance – but all is not what it seems.

Sunday's episode of the BBC show was a repeat from 2019 and was filmed at Morden Hall Park in London.

An array of experts were on hand to value items brought in by members of the public, including a brooch valued at £20,000.

However, midway through the show, some viewers thought they saw The Chase host Bradley Walsh holding court.

They were mistaken though, as it was actually antiques expert Philip Mould.

Taking to Twitter, one viewer wrote: "Bradley Walsh is good with Antiques too #antiquesroadshow."

A second agreed and joked: "It's his long lost posh uncle."

Philip was tasked with valuing a painting of a farmyard scene, and he was enthralled by it.

He said: "It's very affecting, it's like one of those brilliantly done book illustrations."

The owners revealed how it had been passed down through the generations and they thought it was an American painting as it captured an "American spirit."

However, Philip was quick to tell them it was actually "a beautiful piece of English social history".

He then valued it between £10,000-15,000 and the owners said: "It's staying on the wall anyway."

Antiques Roadshow airs on Sundays on BBC One and is available on BBC iPlayer.
