Antiques Roadshow's Fiona Bruce red-faced as co-star shows off her 'sugar nips' in cheeky game

ANTIQUES Roadshow's Fiona Bruce was left flustered after being presented with "sugar nips" and had fans in hysterics.

Viewers saw Fiona play a game of "Basic, Better, Best" during Sunday's episode, where they took a trip to the National Botanic Garden of Wales.

The presenter was shown three items and had to decide which of the three antiques held the most value.

She was shown a set of "sugar nips" – special tongs for handling sugar cubes.

Co-host Lisa Lloyd explained: "These are sugar nips, again they’re bench wood. And these are really interesting actually.

“They’re carved from one piece of wood, and then they’re bent using steam, they use steam to bend them, and then there’s a post in the centre obviously, which makes them into little sugar nips.


Fiona interrupted: "Or little sugar tongs".

Lisa added: "These are unique to North Wales. You don’t find those in South Wales.”

Surprisingly, the sugar nips were the lowest value product as Lisa said: "They look incredible I know, but you can buy these for £80-£120.”

Meanwhile, the most expensive was a wooden carved spoon with intricate folk details.

But fans couldn't resist laughing at the phrase sugar nips as one viewer said: "Fiona censoring 'sugar nips' to sugar tongs."

A second wrote: "Never thought I would hear the words 'Sugar Nips' on #antiquesroadshow @BBC_ARoadshow but it’s made my day."

Another joked: "Sugar nips? That’s what I call the Mrs."

Antiques Roadshow airs Sundays at 7.15pm on BBC One.
