Masterpiece With Alan Titchmarsh
 
Hosted by renowned gardener and ITV Daytime favourite Alan Titchmarsh, Masterpiece With Alan Titchmarsh is a unique new game show taking place in some of the most stunning stately homes across Britain.  
 
The brand new series, which was the brainchild of Alan himself, sees teams comprised of antique and history fans go head to head in a series of challenges. From valuing antiques to deciphering the age of a collectible, the contestants must use their amateur antique skills to secure their position in the ‘Masterpiece Gallery’.
 
Once they enter the ‘Masterpiece Gallery’, each team must work out which of the three objects on display is the true ‘Masterpiece’, an item so exquisite or rare that it is worth £10,000 or more and add it to their collection.
 
The team that has successfully collected the most ‘Masterpieces’ wins a one thousand pound prize. 
 
Host Alan said: “This is the first time I have come up with an idea for a game show so I’m really chuffed and excited. It plays to everyone's curiosity as to the value of all kinds of collectibles and beautiful things, from classic cars to film memorabilia, posters and toys to works of art and antiques. And the series is filmed in some of our finest stately homes, so the scenery is pretty handsome, too. It's been great fun to make and I think it's fun to watch as well, with the viewers playing along to see if they can spot the Masterpieces, which are not always as obvious as they might seem.”
 
In the first episode, Alan heads to the beautiful Firle Place in East Sussex where the first round of eager contestants go head to head in a battle of the collectibles. But will their love of antiques be enough to take home the cash prize?
