Glasgow-based STV Productions has confirmed a bumper deal with Discovery for the licensing of 160 episodes of Antiques Road Trip and 60 of Celebrity Antiques Road Trip to air on free-to-air channel Really.
The Scottish independent production company hailed the deal for the popular show that follows the country’s top antiques experts as they battle it out in a search for items to auction off for profit, with all profits going to Children in Need.
Names including Jennifer Saunders, Charles Dance, Judy Murray and Chesney Hawkes have taken part in the celebrity edition.

STV Productions says it is one of the UK’s leading content businesses "with ambitious plans for domestic and international growth" and is led by David Mortimer. Its shows include four-part thriller The Victim for BBC One, starring Kelly Macdonald and John Hannah.
