AN antiques shop will star in a new episode of Antiques Road Trip.

South Street Antiques in Bridport was invited to feature in an episode of the programme, which was filmed on Thursday, September 28 and will be aired next year.

Expert auctioneer, Charlie Ross, visited the shop, arriving in an Alfa Romeo Spider, and was joined by a film crew of three people.

This is the second time South Street Antiques will star in the programme, having featured in an episode almost two years ago.

Frances Moseley, the owner of South Street Antiques, said she is thrilled that her shop will be on TV.

She said: “They were very nice. Charlie Ross joked with us and said we are old hands at this now.

“Charlie bought three items from the shop but we won't spoil it for you by telling you what they were. 

“They all said how beautiful the area is and some of the crew hadn’t been to Bridport before so they visited West Bay."

Frances explained how the programme got in touch with her son about the new episode. 

She added: “I think they looked us up on the internet and we were on the route of shops they are visiting in the area.

“We didn’t really have expectations - they just rang my son and spoke to him, it is always a good experience for them and for us.

“I told them we are a small shop but they said they like all sorts of antiques shops on the programme.”

Frances and her son Bill have been running the shop on South Street for more than eight years, and Frances explained Antiques Road Trip has attracted more visitors to her shop.

She added: “It does really help bring people to the shop. We have had people ask us where Broadchurch was filmed and we have had people say that they saw us on Antiques Road Trip and that they wanted to come and see the shop. It helps bring people into the area.”
