Celebrity Antiques Road Trip is the series that sees two celebrities travelling around the UK in vintage cars, competing in the search for hidden treasures with the aid of antiques experts to make the most money at auction. In an EastEnders special, the celebrities come to Tunbridge Wells to see what bargains they can find!
Narrated by Bargain Hunt’s Tim Wonnacot, EastEnders favourites Rudolph Walker (Patrick Trueman) and ex-EastEnder Pam St Clement (Pat Evans) visit The Pantiles in Tunbridge Wells to go head to head. Assisted by Charles Hanson and James Braxton, they must choose and purchase antiques on a budget of £400, then sell them at auction. The celebrity with the greatest profit wins and profits are donated to charity.
The Pantiles is a privately owned, period shopping centre in Tunbridge Wells, a popular town in West Kent. Surrounded by the High Weald, a designated ‘Area of Outstanding Beauty’, the town is famous for the Chalybeate Spring, making it the only Spa in Kent. Previous productions that have filmed in Tunbridge Wells include Morrison’s adverts, How to Look Good Naked (2009) and In The Best Possible Taste With Grayson Perry (2012).
