Two experts from a popular television antiques programme visited a Swaffham business this week during filming for a forthcoming episode.

Charlie Ross, left, and James Brandon hunted for bargains at the Old School Antiques Emporium for the BBC series Antiques Road Trip on Wednesday.

Owner Melanie Shaw-Sutton, pictured above centre, said a surprise call from the show’s production team brought them to the emporium, which stands on the old Hamond’s grammar school site in the Market Place.

She said: “They were great fun. It was hysterical.”

The programme is set to be broadcast early next year. MLNF15AM05005
