Antiques Roadshow: Fiona Bruce gobsmacked by a BRICK ‘Oh my goodness’

The 53-year-old TV presenter was left gobsmacked by the “humble brick” – but why?

Host Fiona was entranced by the solid block as it was from Pudding Lane and had survived the Great Fire of London in 1666.

Fiona gushed: “When you film an Antiques Roadshow in a capital city, you hope that something will be brought along that will tell you about London… and my goodness this does. Even if it is just a brick!”

The holder of the item explained: “Yes, the brick came from Thomas Farriner’s baker’s shop in Pudding Lane where the Great Fire of London broke out in 1666.”

Amazed, Fiona asked: “This could be the only brick that survived from the shop, surely?

“I was talking to our expert about this, there was a bit of a thing that went around the Roadshow when we knew this brick was coming in. We can’t value it really!

“How can you put a value on that? I mean this humble little object tells of a remarkable time in history. I’m rather thrilled to see it.”

Viewers instantly took to social media, with one tweeting: “Oh great. The one thing on #antiquesroadshow that I’ve got one of and they can’t value it. Tsch. Bl**dy brick market.”

“Guy on #AntiquesRoadshow has rocked up and presented Fiona Bruce with….a brick. Not a word of a lie,” posted another.

A third added: “#antiquesroadshow a brick… this is edge-of-seat stuff…”
