THE long-running Antiques Road Trip is back and in week two of the new series its experts will visit the Lake District.

With a starting fund of £200 each, four pairs of rival antiquers go head-to-head to seek out hidden gems and make a profit at auction. Driving the length and breadth of the country in an array of classic cars, the competing experts visit local antique shops as well as historic and cultural sites to learn about the little-known stories behind some of the greatest events in British history.

In week two (Tuesday January 9 to Monday January 15) Charles Hanson and Anita Manning kick off their scenic road trip in West Scotland, hunting out hidden gems in Glasgow and Hamilton before travelling to Fife, Scottish Borders, Dumfries, the Lake District, Edinburgh and North Shields. The new series is broadcast weekdays at 4.30pm on BBC One.
