“Today’s the day! You’re going to be bored of me by the end of it with this then @bbcholbycity. Sorry! Had so much fun on @antiqueroadtrip getting to spend quality time with my dear friend #BobBarrett.

“Love that man to pieces, but don't think that stopped me wanting to beat him!!! It's BBC 2 at 7pm (there's a countdown reminder in my stories if you think you might forget!) and make sure to come back and let me know what you think after it!”

Previously, Rosie also shared a little video of her and Bob on the show, where she revealed that she’d be driving a 1965 Porcshe.

“I only stalled like twice, so it’s fine,” she joked.

Rosie hasn't of course revealed whether she or Bob made the most money with their antique buying and selling.

Meanwhile, in tonight’s Holby City Serena Campbell joins a protest when her nephew Jason (Jules Robertson) is sacked from his job as a hospital porter – and she ends up getting arrested and thrown in the cells for the night!
