Celebrity Antiques Road Trip

Jennifer Saunders and Patricia Potter

Series 6 - Episode 1 Jennifer Saunders and Patricia Potter



A sort of celebrity version of Bargain Hunt, this is a charming way to learn a bit about antiques while armchair-tootling around the countryside in the company of some well-known people.

Jennifer Saunders (along with her dog Olive) and Doctors’ Patricia Potter are very competitive, but get positively giddy buying children’s chairs, a pair of bronze turkeys and a boot scraper, among other things, before putting them up for auction to see who will get the biggest profit.

The fun is in trying to guess what each item will go for, and Tim Wonnacott’s arch narration is hilarious. Charles Dance and Geraldine James try their luck tomorrow.


Actresses Jennifer Saunders and Patricia Potter take to the road with experts Philip Serrell and Mark Stacey. They travel through Berkshire, Hampshire and Oxfordshire on a hunt for items to sell at an auction in Greenwich, south London.
