ANTIQUES Roadshow viewers have blasted a "rude" expert after he brutally ripped into a guest's "terrible" item. BBC One fans were not impressed when antiques specialist Robert Tilney offered a very meagre valuation.

One guest brought an old axe to be valued as the show visited Dundee on Sunday's episode. The owner was hoping the prized possession would be worth a few quid, but instead was immediately shut down by the expert.

The guest explained the origin's behind the ship's axe, revealing that it was brought over from New Jersey. He told Robert: "My grandfather collected various antique tools." The guest explained that precious item belonged to a French oil tanker -identified by the name carved onto the handle.
