Antiques Roadshow viewers taken aback by Bradley Walsh’s ‘posh’ lookalike

Viewers of Antiques Roadshow were shocked on Sunday night by the uncanny resemblance of art expert Philip Mould to The Chase’s Bradley Walsh

BBC viewers were in for a huge surprise on Sunday night’s episode of Antiques Roadshow when they thought Bradley Walsh had made a cameo appearance.

Many viewers had to do a double take during the show when The Chase host’s doppelgänger took centre stage.

The episode, which originally aired in October 2019, saw host Fiona Bruce introduce viewers to Morden Hall Park in London.

But it was the lookalike who gained the most attention ahead of the venue or the items on show.

Around the halfway mark of the episode, art expert and broadcaster Philip Mould made his appearance to offer some advice and words of wisdom regarding a late-18th century painting.

A number of excited fans took to Twitter to express their thoughts on the uncanny resemblance between the expert and the gameshow presenter.

One wrote: “Bradley Walsh is good with Antiques too #antiquesroadshow.”, while attaching a snap of Philip looking at the art piece.

Another jokingly agreed and said that it appeared to be a distant relative of the funny man. They wrote: “It’s his long lost posh uncle.”

Philip, who was brought on to discuss a painting of a picturesque farmyard scene of a stone cottage next to some cows underneath a large rainbow, was stunned by the beauty of the piece.

He gushed: “It’s very affecting, it’s like one of those brilliantly done book illustrations.”









The owners of the painting told how it had been passed down via family members throughout the years and said they were hopeful that the work was an American painting as they felt it captured an “American spirit”.

However, the lookalike expert said he was almost certain it was actually an English painting and described it as “a beautiful piece of English social history”.

He put an estimated price tag of between £10,000 to £15,000 on the item.

The valuation failed to tempt its owners into parting ways with it, though. They told the expert: “It’s staying on the wall anyway.”

Again, fans took to Twitter to voice their opinion, with some viewers failing to believe that it won’t be sold on.

“It’s staying on the wall. It’s worth 15 grand. Don’t lie to me: You’re kidding no-one pal,” wrote one user.

Another was under the same impression and penned: “Out that door and swanky new car on the drive…”
