The UK version of ANTIQUES ROADSHOW returns as presenter Fiona Bruce and the team are back on the trail of the nation’s hidden treasures, visiting more of Britain’s most sumptuous and unusual locations.

Season 36 also introduces a new play-along feature – The Rogues Gallery, where viewers get the chance to see whether they can spot a fake among real treasures.

In this episode, Fiona Bruce and the team set up for a busy day at Exeter Cathedral in in Devon, England.

Objects under inspection include a table reputed to have been used by Bonnie Prince Charlie; a silver cup found when re-thatching the roof of a cottage; artwork painted by Edward VII as a child; and a pair of the rarest Delft plates ever featured on the show.

Two porcelain "Persian bottles" made in 1643 are valued by John Axford.
