About 15,000 items are valued at each show by Roadshow experts from which around 60 are filmed for inclusion in the two shows made at each location.

Antiques Roadshow is one of the BBC’s most popular factual programmes and around six million people regularly watch on Sunday evenings.

Some of the most fascinating finds to come to light over the years include wristwatch owned by Lawrence of Arabia, which went on to sell for £34,000, a chest eventually proven to have belonged to Queen Anne and a leather jacket worn by John F Kennedy and valued at up to £300,000.

Many objects featured on the Roadshow have been found in strange places such as diamond jewels found sewn into an upholstered chair and two important painting discovered by the new owners of a house in their loft.

The Antiques Roadshow returns to Salisbury Cathedral for the first time since 1990 to film within the grounds.

Entry to the show is free, everyone is welcome, and no tickets or pre-registration is required.

Visitors can turn up on the day and share their stories about the special items they take.

Email shareyourstory@bbc.co.uk with your name, address, telephone number, a description of the item and how you come to own it and a photo.
