There’s going to be a cross over of worlds when EastEnders and Antiques Roadshow join forces in 2017.
To celebrate the 40th series of Antiques Roadshow on the BBC, the show will set up camp in Walford as it heads to the EastEnders set.
A special will air from outside the Queen Vic pub in Albert Square on the BBC Studios in Elstree.
Guests will be asked to bring objects from the world of film, music, theatre and TV to be appraised by the experts. The new series, celebrating the anniversary will mark four decades since Antique Roadshow’s very first series.
Speaking of 2017’s plans, show host Fiona Bruce said: ‘Where does the time go? Meeting fantastic people, hearing their stories, going to fabulous locations and, best of all unearthing hidden treasures clearly makes the time fly.
‘I hope as many people as possible come along to see us in 2017 at one of our fascinating venues, it’s a great, free day out, you can see behind the scenes of one of your favourite shows, and who knows?
