This episode was the first to air with coronavirus safety measures in place as the experts and guests were seen standing two meters apart from one another.
Explaining the changes to the show, host Fiona Bruce, 56 said: “Rather than have 5,000 people turn up, we have asked people to write in about the articles they’ve got, then gone through that list.
“We generally film about 70 objects and get two programmes out of that.
“We invite people to come along and they bring their families or the people they bubble with, so in one sense there will still be a crowd,” she told Radio Times.
Antiques Roadshow continues Sunday at 8pm on BBC One.
