Viewers were creeped out after the latest 'Antiques Roadshow' episode in the U.K.


Good morning. I'm Rob Schmitz.

The latest "Antiques Roadshow" episode in the U.K. left some viewers unable to sleep after a couple of dummies came on - that is, ventriloquist dummies - really creepy ones. A woman showcased her dad's old dolls named Fred and William.


UNIDENTIFIED PERSON: Fred is actually wearing my dad's wig.


SCHMITZ: Their value - 100 pounds. One viewer responded on social media, put them in a box and burn them - don't care how much they're worth.
