By Ed McConnell

Kent beauty Kelly Brook will appear in the latest series of a hit antiques show.

The former glamour model, 38, who was born in Chatham, will face actress and TV presenter Denise van Outen, who lived in Biddenden, near Ashford, on Celebrity Antiques Road Trip.

The pair will visit Margate, Ramsgate, Faversham, Maidstone and Ashford, finishing at an auction in Battle, East Sussex.

The show will air on the BBC 2 at 7pm on Monday.

Before the auction keen golfer Denise has a chance to show off her skills as she learns about the history of mini-golf in Margate and Kelly visits the maze at Leeds Castle.

Other guests on the show will include Peter Andre, Sue Johnston and Bananarama.

In each episode, the two competing celebrities put their knowledge and bartering skills to the test as they set out in classic vintage cars to find antique bargains, before selling them at auction.

On hand to help are the show’s regular antiques experts Charles Hanson and Tim Medhurst, each paired with a celebrity, to provide guidance on the world of antiques.

The last series was watched by 15.6 million people across the UK.

"There is even a bit of scandal in this series with an accusation of foul play when an antique is damaged at auction by the opposing team...” - John Redshaw, series producer

Series producer at STV Productions, which makes the show, John Redshaw said: “It’s always exciting to hit the road with a new set of celebrities, and this series is no exception.

"We have a brilliant line-up of competing stars going head-to-head on the antiques trail and I think viewers will love following their road trips as they track down weird and wonderful bargains in antique shops around the country.

“Some of the more interesting items found during the series include a vintage vaulting horse uncovered by Joe Pasquale, emblazoned with the name of its former owner - HMP Broadmoor.

"Denise van Outen made an unlikely purchase of a plough, whereas Claire Sweeney pinned her hopes on a toy tank.

"And Jordan Banjo definitely wins the prize for the most unusual buy - a pair of mismatched Edwardian glass eyes.

"There is even a bit of scandal in this series with an accusation of foul play when an antique is damaged at auction by the opposing team.”
