The moment came as the BBC One show took a trip to Scotland for its latest episode.

Fiona Bruce and her trusty team of experts were at Brodie Castle in Morayshire as they oversaw a slew of items all ranging in value.

However, there was one treasured find that stood out clearly among the rest.

Speaking to jewellery expert Susan Rumfitt, the guest showed off a brooch that had "been passed down" through her family to her and confessed that it was something she only ever wore in the evenings.

Instantly taken by the item, Susan confessed that it dated all the way back to the 1930s as she told the lady: ‘It’s got a sense of theatre about it, sort of plays away on its own with its beautiful diamonds. It’s magnetic."
