FAKE or Fortune viewers have all had the same complaint about a 'too rich for their own good' family.
Tuesdays episode of the BBC series saw Fiona Bruce and art expert Philip Mould visit a lady called Henrietta Sitwell at her home in London.
Henrietta had inherited a sketch purported to be by one of the world's most famous artists – Amedeo Modigliani.
The sketch had been in her family for generations but recently, a leading auction house cast doubt on its authenticity.
This was a big deal for Henrietta and her family because if it was authentic, it could fetch up to £100,000.
However, Modigliani's work is one of the most faked in the art world, with a forgery making just a few hundred pounds.

As Fiona, Philip and their team of experts got to work on establishing if the drawing was an original or not, some viewers at home took issue with the types of people the programme featured.
Taking to Twitter, one wrote: "Bloody love #fakeorfortune, but it’s never anything belonging to someone living in a two up-two down in Runcorn, is it?"
Another added: "WHY does this lady call her grandfather ‘sir’ 😭 too rich for their own good #fakeorfortune."
A third tweeted: "I still think they should have kept #BritainsLostMasterpieces and dumped #FakeOrFortune.
