For this programme, due to be screened in the autumn, antiques expert and TV presenter David Harper joined forces with local choir Cor Meibion Colwyn to perform a rousing version of “Bread of Heaven”.

David said: ‘We’re having an incredible time filming in Wales. Over the weekend we joined the fantastic Cor Colwyn for a lovely little singalong. Also, a big shout-out to the RNLI in the background there who do such an amazing job each and every day.’

A RNLI spokesperson added: ‘this was a great opportunity to both support our friends Cor Meibion Colwyn and to show the wider public what a great new boathouse we have here in Llandudno.’
