Roadshow's record find of PS1m plus.

Byline: MARK JEFFERIES Showbiz Editor

THE Antiques Roadshow has found an item worth more than PS1million - the most valuable in the BBC One show's 38-year-history.

The Mirror understands it could be unveiled as the FA Cup. Teams currently play for the fifth version of the trophy.

A model of the Angel of the North was the show's biggest find when it was valued at PS1million in 2008.

The latest item, described by producers as "a world famous piece owned by a sporting institution", was discovered during filming in Harrogate, North Yorks, on Wednesday. The episode will be screened next April.

Gabby Logan, who presents coverage of FA Cup football on the BBC, tweeted earlier this week: "Sneaky trip to Harrogate for the Antiques Roadshow."
