HUNDREDS are expected at the filming of Antiques Roadshow in Durham Cathedral today.

The popular BBC Sunday night show, presented by newsreader Fiona Bruce, will hope to uncover a host of undiscovered gems recovered from attics and garages.

As many as 2,000 visitors are expected to bring along their household treasures and curiosities to be inspected by the programme's team of experts.

The North-East holds a special place in Antiques Roadshow history, the record valuation of £1m having been set by a maquette model of the Angel of the North during a previous visit to Gateshead.
