If it was cleaned and repaired, it would still be junk

The Antiques Road-show, a popular BBC 1 prime time show that allows members of the public to bring in their dearest and most expensive possessions for authentication, evaluation and valuation is to show a one-off show.

The show came from Tatton Park in Cheshire, which was the most visited of the series, and has provided the show's makers with a unique opportunity.

"The hour long show normally displays the most interesting, most expensive, most extreme items brought into the show," said producer, Anne Teak. "However, we get thousands of people who come to the road show with rubbish, the same was true at Tatton, but more so. So we're going to have a special called the Tat At Tatton road show."

The show will show the endless array of teapots worth thirty pence, stamps worth less than their face value and pictures that are really prints worth less than the frame.

"We especially want to show people's faces when they hear the news that their treasured possessions are actually worth less than the petrol they spent to get to the road show," said Teak. "Some of the jaw dropping moments are incredible to see, whilst watching people flounce off makes for great television."

The show is going to start with one of the best flounces seen in television history, when a well-to-do woman from Alderly Edge has brought in a seventy-two piece dinner service only to be told it was Early Ikea, circa 1978, and worth approximately five pound.

"The look on her face is worth every penny," said Teak. "It's priceless."
