A film crew with presenter and antiques dealer Roo Irvine visited Old Bridge Antiques Centre in Bideford, plus Collectability in Torrington and Adams Antiques in Barnstaple.

The series sees experts scouring the country looking for bargains which they take to auction and try to sell for a profit, with proceeds to Children in Need.

Susannah Wade at Old Bridge Antiques Centre said Roo arrived in a vintage Rolls Royce before walking around the shop and choosing various items that she wanted.

She said: "We talked about some of the antiques that historically had interest to her, she chose three items that she bought and will take them off to auction to hopefully make a profit.

"Roo and I both went to art college and we were comparing notes and talking about how she got into it.

"This is our 30th year of trading and they also said our prices were below the national average, but we deliberately do that so we get repeat visitors and a lot of trade visits.

"They certainly got three bargains and they should make profit on all of them."

Felicity Bright at Collectability in Torrington said the visiting crew had been great fun. She added: "Roo was very funny - and very glamourous!
