BBC viewers couldn't believe their eyes when they tuned into Antiques Roadshow on Sunday night – because it looked like Bradley Walsh had made a 'cameo appearance' on the famous collectibles show.

During Sunday night's episode of the BBC One antiques show, which originally aired in October 2019, stunning host Fiona Bruce introduced viewers to Morden Hall Park in London.

However, to some eagle-eyed viewers it appeared that TV legend Fiona was soon to be joined by another famous presenter – the cheeky-chappy host of The Chase, Bradley Walsh.

It was only halfway through the episode of Sunday night's show when art expert and broadcaster Philip Mould reared his head to share his nuggets of wisdom on a late-18th century painting.

However, some excited fans at home spotted what they thought was an uncanny resemblance between art buff Philip and gameshow titan Bradley, and rushed to Twitter to point out the likeness between the two.

One fan wrote: "Bradley Walsh is good with Antiques too #antiquesroadshow.", whilst attaching a snap of Philip looking at the art piece.

A second agreed, and quipped that he must be a distant relative of Bradley's.

They quipped: "It's his long lost posh uncle.."

Philip was stunned by the beautiful painting, which depicted a picturesque farmyard scene of a stone cottage next to some cows, all beneath a large rainbow.

The owners revealed that they had passed down the art piece through various family members, and that they hoped that the work was American in origin as it captured an "American spirit".

However, Philip was conviced that it was an English painting, describing it as "a beautiful piece of English social history" and pricing it at between £10,000 to £15,000 in value.

However, some fans were baffled at the owner's decision to keep it on the wall – when he declared: "it's staying on the wall anyway".

One viewer reckoned he was lying, and tweeted: "'It's staying on the wall. It's worth 15 grand. Don't lie to me: You're kidding no-one pal."

A second agreed, suggesting that they'd soon sell it up to buy a car, adding: "Out that door and swanky new car on the drive…"
