Well – the countdown to the big day has finally arrived, folks.

THIS SUNDAY (June 23) the nation’s favourite antiques programme is headed to the V&A design museum and Slessor Gardens.

Thousands are expected to show up from Tayside and beyond, eager for their collectables to be inspected and valued by Fiona Bruce and the Antiques Roadshow team.

The programme regularly pulls in around 6 million viewers.

Each venue they visit gets around 15,000 items brought in to be valued, with 50 being filmed for use in the show.

The last time the team visited Dundee was in 2008 – the standout item being a 19th century clock, which was valued at an incredible £10,000.

Philip Long, Director of V&A Dundee, said:

It’s been more than 10 years since the Antiques Roadshow last came to Dundee and we’re delighted the BBC has chosen V&A Dundee as a host this year… We’re really looking forward to welcoming thousands of people to the museum and nearby Slessor Gardens for what’s going to be a fantastic day. Dundee, and Scotland as a whole, has an extraordinary heritage and I can’t wait to see what family treasures are uncovered here.
