"Sadly there wasn't enough time to jump on the wheel. Looking forward to another week of traveling around the country. Where would you like to see us next?" After a number of Will's followers asked when the show would be airing on TV, the presenter responded: "Hopefully next summer."

Will's post certainly got fans excited about watching the series, which will see him and Antiques Road Trip star Christina Trevanion travel up and down the country looking for precious items in need of a spruce up before they are sold or auctioned.
