Discussing his experience on the show, Davide said: “It was such a pleasure to be part of Celebrity Antiques Road Trip – from the nostalgic feeling of putting myself into an antique car, through to the fun side of buying and selling antiques.
“There was healthy competition between Ekin and I, and we had lots of fun as we supported each other through the experience. I learned a lot about antiques and how appearances can be deceiving; something may look like it could be worth a lot, but it may just be more sentimental value.”
Muslim Alim, BBC Commissioning Editor, said: “It’s great to have Celebrity Antiques Road Trip back on BBC Two this autumn with another exciting list of celebrity duos and a plethora of weird and wonderful items that will have you guessing till the last minute on their profit potential.”
Celebrity Antiques Road Trip begins on Tuesday 11 October at 7pm on BBC Two and iPlayer.
