What happens in Millionaire Hoarders and our episode guide

Epsiode 1 of Millionaire Hoarders
First up in Millionaire Hoarders, antiques dealer Clive and collector Ronnie visit a castle in Scotland filled to the brim with antiques, books and manuscripts. And there’s astonishment from Ronnie when he unearths what appears to be a John Constable painting that could be worth between £1m and £2m. Meanwhile, fashion expert Paula looks through an incredible vintage clothes collection in an East London studio flat. 
In 2011 Adity and Simon Craufurd gave up their corporate careers to take over Craufurdland Castle, which has been in Simon’s family for 800 years. But as the building costs £100,000 a year to run, the couple must raise funds to secure its future.  "You take it on as generation 28 and you don’t want generation 28 to be the one that lost it," admits Simon.
The Craufurds have called in Ronnie and Clive, two experts. There’s huge excitement when Ronnie spots what appears to be a genuine painting by John Constable behind a TV in the guest wing. But the painting must be authenticated. If genuine it could sell for £2m. 
The experts also unearth an epitaph written by Scottish poet Robert Burns and a guest book signed by Charles Dickens, while in London, fashion expert Paula rifles through an incredible collection of vintage clothes, to raise funds for owner Pat to move to Tokyo. In the meantime, Adity and Simon face an anxious wait… "The potential that the painting could bring is not life-changing just for us,’ says Simon. "It’s a legacy that will go on for generations."
