Film crews have been recording Salvage Hunters at an antiques store at Stonham Barns — with the episode due to air next year.

Presenters Drew Pritchard and John Tee visited Aspal Antiques earlier in November for the Quest TV series.

Aspal Antiques, which is managed by husband and wife duo Alan Knight and Henrietta Lewis, was approached by producers about recording an episode last year.

They said the presenters and production team were "really nice and approachable" and hoped the episode would result in a boost in trade when it broadcasts next year.

Mr Knight said: "They approached us in between the lockdowns when we were setting up the shop here.
