Daily Star’s Inside Hot TV newsletter sees Ed Gleave send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday

Antiques Roadshow guests dream of finding out their old family heirlooms or collectables are worth a fortune on the popular BBC show.

And it turns out it’s not just members of the public that like trying their luck.

Fiona Bruce, who has hosted the iconic programme for 13 years, appeared on The One Show last night (March 15) where she recalled bringing in her own doll collection to get valued for one episode.

Putting her head in her hands, she explained: “I brought along these dolls that my dad, who travelled a lot when I was a child, had brought back from every country he had visited.

“I loved these so the editor said ‘why don’t you bring them along?’

“So I got them out of the attic and unpacked them in front of Hilary Kay – it’s the first time I’d seen them in 20 or 30 years and I was cooing about them.”

But it turned out her precious dolls weren’t quite as valuable as she hoped.

“Hilary, bless her, was absolutely horrified at these totally valueless things,” Fiona continued.

“So I think maybe a tenner for one.”

Hosts Michael Ball and Alex Jones were left in hysterics at the fail.

It comes after a guest on Antiques Roadshow was left speechless after an Omega watch he bought for £4 was given a huge valuation.

And one expert on the show was left gobsmacked after someone brought in a rare golf computer which held a surprising value.

The One Show airs every weekday at 7pm on BBC One.
