Jesse will meet Jonathan Humbert, from JP Humbert Auctioneers near Towcester and Tanks A Lot in Northamptonshire where he will try to buy a tank.

The show, British Treasure, American Gold, will start on Quest at 8pm on October 19.

A spokesman for the show said: "This all-new series is a vibrant and original take on the world of antiques and trading. Jesse McClure, self-dubbed ‘Resale King’ heads to the UK complete with his 1978 black Pontiac Firebird (named Lily) to travel the length and breadth of the country searching for antiques and collectibles.

"He visits stately homes, collectors’ markets and even car boot sales on the hunt for typically British curios and valuable artefacts to send back to his family’s antique business in Los Angeles/

"From bone china vases to Elton John’s gold-plated sink, vintage one-armed bandits to armoured military vehicles, ‘British Treasure, American Gold’ focuses on the unique and unexpected side of British history, shining an American spotlight on the country’s eclectic past," he said.

"Jesse will put $100k of his family’s hard-earned cash on the line as he hits the streets in search of the biggest and boldest bargains Britain has to offer before shipping them back to the US in an effort to turn a profit in the family’s LA antique store," he added.

Quest is available on Sky 144, Virgin 172, Freeview & YouView 37.
