Norfolk's best antique hunting spots will be broadcast to millions on Friday afternoon, when an episode of a BBC show filmed in the county airs.

Antique Road Trips visited Norfolk in October, where the crew ran a professional eye over antique finds at locations including Norwich Fleamarket and Market Cross Antiques, based in Wymondham.

In the show, experts Anita Manning and Paul Laidlaw go head to head to see who can make the most money.

Melissa Meehan, shop assistant at Market Cross Antiques, said: 'It was really exciting. They just phoned us up out of the blue and asked whether we'd like to be featured.

'They came and filmed in October and visited different locations around Norfolk.

'It was great for the shop as we had only been open just over a year at that time, and also great for Wymondham.'

The bargain hunting duo also visited the Norwich Fleamarket for its final outing at the dramatic 14th century St Andrew's Hall, in the city centre.

In November, the Fleamarket, the city's oldest and biggest antiques fair, relocated to the Old Fire Station in Bethel Street.

This year, the market celebrates its 40th anniversary.

Friday's episode will see the presenters begin in Norwich, before heading for a nail-biting final auction in Stamford, in Lincolnshire.

The show will air on BBC One at 4.30pm on Friday, January 30.
