Soap Stars Visit Barnsley For BBC2 Show

Monday November 11 2013




TWO soap stars were in Barnsley to film part of television programme in which celebrities hunt for antiques.

Vicky Entwistle, who played feisty Janice Battersby in Coronation Street, and Shaun Williamson, best known for playing hapless Barry Evans in Eastenders took part in BBC2's 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.

Wendy Rattray, creative director for STV Productions which produces the show, said: "We have some brilliant celebrities lined up to hit the antiques trail in the new series, which promises more fun, banter and friendly rivalry from our competing stars."

The episode with Vicky and Shaun will air on November 18.
