Fiona Bruce and the team visit Port Sunlight in Wirral for another busy day of valuations. For amongst the treasures under scrutiny include a portrait of Shakespeare discovered beneath another painting, a model of Buckingham Palace made from thousands of matchsticks, and one of the most exciting pieces of jewellery seen on the show.

But it is a small piece of plastic that gets the best reaction.
