RACHEL Riley clashed with an Antiques Road Trip expert over a ‘hideous’ item – insisting ‘my one-year-old could do better’.

The Countdown star appeared on the BBC Two programme with husband Pasha Kovalev, teaming up with expert David Harper to try and find the most profitable antiques.

The pair headed to the Shoulder of Mutton antique shop in Aldgate and found a number of items.

David particularly liked a horse brooch priced at £20, telling Rachel: “I found something you are going to adore.”

Holding up the tiny item to show her, Rachel joked: “Where is it?”

David asked: “Don’t you love that? It’s a horse.”

But Rachel – who gave birth to the couple’s second child last week – replied: “It’s not shiny, David.”

As he placed his face in his hands, she added: “Look at that. I mean my one-year-old could do better than that.”


Despite her criticism, David continued to try and persuade Rachel to think differently about the item, but she told him: “It looks really ill. Look at that horse, it’s a sickly horse.”

David was still persistent and begged her to buy it, which she eventually did, begrudgingly.

When it came to auction, Pasha’s expert Paul Martin asked about the brooch and Rachel replied: “It’s hideous. It’s horrible.”

David got the last laugh though, as the horse brooch ended up selling for £85, making the pair a nice profit.

But when asked if she now liked the brooch, Rachel stubbornly replied: “No, Not going to miss it but I like the money.”
