THIS could be your chance to be on TV and make lots of money, as an antiques show comes to a very stately home near you.

BBC Two daytime show FlogIt!, presented by Paul Martin, will be filmed at Ashridge House from 9.30am to 4pm on Friday, August 31, its producers have now announced.

Anna Brown, the venue’s hospitality director, said: “Ashridge has a magical and colourful past that dates back over 700 years.

“Ashridge House, as it stands today, is a grade I listed 19th century neo-gothic mansion set within one of England’s most beautiful and historically significant gardens.

“We look forward to providing an inspiring backdrop for Flog It! fans as Paul Martin and the team unearth treasures on the valuation day.”

People are invited to bring up to three antiques and collectables to Ashridge House during the FlogIt! event for a free valuation.

After that, the owner and a team of experts will decide if any should be offered up for sale at an auction a few weeks later.

This will be held before FlogIt! cameras at Tring Market Auctions in Brook Street on Friday, September 28.

In past episodes of the show, items have been sold for up to £44,000 at this stage.

Series producer Heidi Ellert said: “Paul Martin and the entire Flog It! team are really looking forward to bringing the show to Hertfordshire.

“Ashridge House and the beautiful grounds are a stunning location.

“Ashridge will provide the perfect setting for our valuation day event.

“We all hope you will join us for a free valuation – if you’ve ever wondered how much your boot sale bargains or clutter in the loft might be worth, now is your chance to find out.”
