An episode of a popular antiques show which was filmed in Braintree will be dancing onto screens next week.

Back in June the cast and crew of the BBC’s Celebrity Antiques Road Trip visited Bocking Arts Theatre with Diversity dancer Perri Kiely.

Meanwhile, roughly 19 miles away, filming for the same show was taking place at Mountfitchet Castle, in Stansted, where fellow Diversity dancer Jordan Banjo was also getting to grips with bartering for some antiques.

The series returns to BBC Two on Monday with the episode filmed in Braintree set to air on Wednesday.

For their episode the dancing duo, who won Britain’s Got Talent with their troop, travelled round in an MG BGT and an Alfa Romeo to discover an ancient Chinese leisure activity on a river in Cambridgeshire and get to play the jester in Essex.

It culminates with them reaching an auction in Greenwich.

James Braxton was the expert at the Braintree centre, in Bocking End, with Paul Scannell on hand to offer advice to Jordan Banjo in Stansted.

John Redshaw, series producer at STV Productions, said: “It’s always exciting to hit the road with a new set of celebrities, and this series is no exception.

“We have a brilliant line-up of competing stars going head-to-head on the antiques trail and I think viewers will love following their road trips as they track down weird and wonderful bargains in antique shops around the country.

“Jordan Banjo definitely wins the prize for the most unusual buy - a pair of mismatched Edwardian glass eyes.”

It was the second time the antiques centre had been visited by the show and Tom Bosher, who runs the centre, said he enjoyed taking part in the filming.

While on the visit to the centre Mr Braxton and Mr Kiely decided to purchase a 1950s Bakelite radio.

Speaking to the Times in June Mr Bosher said: “They were here filming for about three hours which is remarkable considering they probably show about ten minutes of each place they visit.

“But the level of detail they go into in terms of how they shoot it and all the angles they use was amazing to see.”

The episode will be shown on BBC Two at 7pm on Wednesday, November 7.
