Viewers of Antiques Roadshow will be able to test their valuation skills with a new interactive game.

Fans will be able to estimate the value of objects before the BBC One show's expert gives their verdict on air.

The game will be launched on computers, tablets, mobiles and the red button for the next series in September.

The BBC's Victoria Jaye said the show was "tapping into existing audience behaviour - viewers have been shouting at their TV screens for years".

Ms Jaye, who is head of IPTV and TV online content, added: "It's a great example of how we can renew our audience's enjoyment of watching a much-cherished BBC programme."

Viewers will also be able to use an "ask the nation" function to see what others are guessing and at the end of each episode get a final score to compare with other players.
