Soap stars hit the town in antique hunt

By Lynsey Bradford, Town Reporter Friday 1st November 2013
In Barnsley: Soap stars Shaun Williamson and Vicky Entwistle.

Soap stars Vicky Entwistle and Shaun Williamson were in Barnsley to film part of television programme in which celebrities hunt for antiques.

 

Vicky, who played Janice Battersby in Coronation Street, and Shaun, best known for playing Barry Evans in EastEnders took part in the BBC 2 show Celebrity Antiques Road Trip.

 

The third series follows 20 pairs of celebrities as they set off on a whistle stop tour of the UK, determined to make the biggest profit from buying and selling antiques.

 

Vicky and Shaun, who visited Elsecar Heritage Centre, compete against each other in the episode, putting their wit and bargaining skills to the test as they set out to find hidden gems before taking them to auction. On hand to help each of them are two of the show's antiques experts.

 

Travelling in classic vintage cars, the teams are given a budget of £400 before starting their engines for a cross-country road trip.

 

Celebrity Antiques Road Trip has been a hit with viewers, attracting a peak audience of more than 2.5 million. It starts on Monday at 7pm, and the episode with Vicky and Shaun will air on November 18.
