A CLYDEBANK shop is to feature on a new series of the BBC’s Antiques Road Trip for the fourth time.

The celebrity version of the show sees antiques experts accompany celebrities on a road trip around the UK searching for treasures and competing to make the most money at auction.

Vintage store Kean On Antiques, in Fleming Court, welcomed a camera crew, antique expert Irita Marriott and celebrity guest AJ Pritchard recently.

The broadcast will mark the fourth time the shop has featured on the show.

Ryan Kean, who has always had a passion for antiques, opened the Clydebank shop four years ago and runs it with his partner Leonie Doyle.

Describing the crew’s latest visit, Leonie told the Post: “Once you are on their list, you tend to get a call from producers if they are in the area.

“This will be the fourth time we have appeared on the show. We’ve done two of the regular Antiques Road Trip shows and two of the celebrity versions.

“The other celebrity one we did was with Judy Murray, which was great and she was lovely.

“This time the guest star was AJ Pritchard from Strictly and again he was really nice.

“It’s a great experience for the shop and it’s good that they are helping to put Clydebank on the map.

“Sometimes they will film small bits about the shipyards, or say something about Singer, and it highlights the local history.”

When the episode is broadcast, Irita and AJ will find themselves competing against Stephanie Connell and AJ’s brother Curtis Pritchard of Love Island and Hollyoaks fame.

Leonie added: “They bought various items and we are hopeful this will help them win at auction, but we can’t say what they are until it is broadcast.

“It’s really good advertising for the business and every time the programme is shown we get a boost.

“You get mic’d up, they have a chat with you beforehand, they have a look around and then there are around three different cameras they use to film.

“This time, because of Covid, they used GoPro cameras for filming because the space is quite tight in some parts so social distancing was difficult.

“The crew make you feel very comfortable and my business partner, Ryan, really enjoys doing it now.”
