A Devon auctioneer is to reappear on TV screens in the latest series of BBC2 show Antiques Road Trip.

Mark Hales, of SJ Hales Auctioneers in Bovey Tracey, toured Wales and Ireland for new episodes of the popular series.

The antiques expert joined fellow presenter Thomas Plant as the pair attempted to uncover collectable items and sell them for a profit at auction rooms. Mr Hales said: "It is a competition between the two of us to make as much money as we can.

"We travelled all around Wales and Ireland valuing things – it was great fun."

The pair have previously unearthed a treasure trove of fascinating, if not always saleable, items. The show will air later this month.
