Antiques Road Trip star David Harper reveals star guest nearly got them arrested on show

David Harper, 52, has been on Antiques Road Trip since it first began on the BBC back in 2012.

And the antiques expert has been involved in plenty of drama along the way, particularly involving celebrities.

David, who will be sharing more stories during his theatre tour, Unexpected Tales Tour, explained when he was with a star on the programme, the famous person almost got them both arrested.

Speaking about special guests on the show, he said in an interview with “I met one very famous celebrity who almost got me arrested.”

Luckily he kept his underpants on

Spilling all on the memorable tale, he explained: “We were filming and he had just been awarded rear of the year, which if you know who this character is, this got him very excited.”

Not divulging anymore details about the mysterious person in question, David continued: “So he couldn’t stop talking about it and then he started showing his rear.

“Luckily he kept his underpants on which were very skimpy and a bit shocking!”

David went on: “He was showing his rear so much, things developed and we almost got arrested!

“The police got involved, public complaints were involved and indecent exposure was involved.”

David said everything was sorted out in the end and admitted he “doesn’t mind” when things go badly wrong, as he added: “I just make a mental note and think that will be a good story.”

When asked who his favourite celebrity has been, he said it would be “difficult” to choose.

But the star admitted there are some that are certainly “challenging”.

“Some are a bit demanding,” he said. “Often more challenging for the crew, they’re surprised there isn’t a two hour lunch break etc…”

David will be spilling more and potentially identifying celebrities during his Unexpected Tales Tour.

Revealing what it will entail, he said: “It will include stories behind the camera and stories I shouldn’t be telling anyone!

“So I hope no-one from the BBC is there!”

David admitted he came to the decision to share his anecdotes on tour after being asked to deliver many speeches.

“Ever since I’ve been on TV for the past 15 years, I’ve been asked to give talks,” he said.

“I’ve been doing them for a long time and a friend of mine said why don’t you think about doing a theatre show!”

As well as his role on Antiques Road Trip, David also appears on Bargain Hunt, which airs on BBC One.

Antiques Road Trip airs today on BBC Two at 5.15pm.
