'It's the nation's favourite antiques experts with £200 each,
'a classic car and a goal - to scour Britain for antiques.'
'The aim? To make the biggest profit at auction,
'but it's no mean feat.'
'There'll be worthy winners and valiant losers.'
'So will it be the high road to glory or the slow road to disaster?'
'This is the Antiques Road Trip!'
'It's the final leg of our Antiques Road Trip
'with experts David Barby and Margie Cooper
'in the 1979 Mercedes convertible.'
'They've had a jolly old jaunt,
'covering many miles, but it's all about to come to a head.'
So I think it's all to play for.
All to play for.
Now, I think your tactics should be to spend the lot.
Oh. And your tactics should be not to spend much.
It's all in the luck of the gods and which shop you go to.
'With a passion for antiques, David is the master of ceramics
'and the supremo of seduction.'
-Can I give you a kiss?
'Ha! He also knows if you want to get ahead, you need to get a hat.'
'And what's good for the goose is good for the gander.'
It must be for amateur theatricals!
'But who will be crowned the winner after the final auction?'
'During the road trip, Margie has increased her initial £200
'to an admirable £339.30.'
'David, on the other hand,
'has grown his pot of cash to an impressive £517.34.'
'The route for the week takes our intrepid travellers
'from Alnwick in Northumberland, down the Northeast coast
'and onto the final destination of Lincoln.'
'But today's trip begins in Heanor in Derbyshire.'
'Heanor is a small town
'in the Amber Valley and in 2006 it was awarded the special accolade
'of being the second most English place in the country.'
'So what's the plan, boys and girls?'
Over the last week, we've done it all - silver, ceramics, furniture,
we've done quirky... What do we do now?
'The first stop of the day is the local antiques centre.'
'With over 200 dealers here, there should be something for them both.'
I hate being in the same shop as you. I'm intimidated by David Barby.
I think I'll get there before you!
'No need to run, children!'
-Hello there. What an Aladdin's cave!
-Which way are you heading?
-I'll go that way.
-OK, I'll go this way.
-See you later.
-OK, good luck.
Oohhh. Oh, that's quite nice.
'With at least 180 cabinets to look through, this could take time,
'unless, of course, you know exactly what you're after.'
This is a nice little beaker and it's got three legs,
so if the table's uneven,
this is going to remain static cos it's on three ball legs.
'The Danish beaker is 18th century in style,
'but this is a 20th century copy
'by designer David Anderson - highly collectable.'
Nice piece of silver. £169 - that really is over the top.
-Dare I say, it's got to be under 100.
Well, I can see what I can do.
'As manager Jane phones the dealer,
'magpie David has spotted a Norwegian silver brooch.'
This is magnificent. This is early 20th century,
And it's not silver. We can't classify it as silver,
it's 830, not 925,
so it's white metal.
But I might just enquire the price on that.
When's he gonna go?
-I can hear his dulcet tones.
-'Wait your turn, Margie.'
-What's your best on that?
-25's going to be the best.
-You couldn't do it any lower?
-Not really. I'm struggling to go lower.
Because you're getting it down from 49, so...
And that would be at... £100.
These belong to the same people.
These belong to the same people, yeah.
You've already quoted me £20 on that.
20... I said 25!
-Oh, dear, you drive a hard bargain, don't you?
-So if we say £20 on that,
can you come down to 70 on that one?
So 90 for the two? Yes, go on, then.
OK. Thank you.
What have I done?!
'With so much to choose from,
'it was only a matter of time before Margie found silver of her own.'
Not had a chance to date it, only just come in, to be honest.
I mean, I can let you have it for 150, I think it's worth that.
Yeah, that'd have to be... I'd insult you.
You won't insult me, I've got a thick skin, I'm a dealer!
-I'd want to buy that at 95.
-I quite understand.
Has David bought something?
Yes. So maybe I SHOULD let you have it for that.
Have you been doing deals with him?
If you find anything, I will do a deal with you.
-Just found that.
-Yeah, I know.
-You can have it for 95 if you want.
-Oh, no, I don't want pity.
'But while they haggle
'over the silver box, Jane has something else up her sleeve.'
-This is... That's very, very pretty, this one.
-That one... That one can be 45 to you.
It's a lidded jar, maybe one of a pair.
Made by Carlton Ware.
Wiltshaw and Robinson. W&R, Wiltshaw and Robinson from Stoke-on-Trent.
Did David see this? No. Or has he seen it?
That, you said was...
'What about that silver box, Margie? It was £150, but for you - 95.'
It's 1922, the hallmark tells me, which is there.
And it's, uh,
tortoiseshell lid with silver, uh, inlay.
Silver and tortoiseshell were made for each other.
'Now it's illegal to sell pieces containing tortoiseshell after 1947,
'but this box dates from 1922.'
So, Jane, can I have both or don't you want to do that?
No, you can have that for... for... 95.
-You're very kind!
THEY LAUGH I feel awful now.
'For a silver box at £95
'and a Carlton Ware vase for £45?'
'The job's a good 'un!'
'With two purchases each, they're back on the road.'
'David is driving Margie to Newstead Abbey in Nottinghamshire,
'former home of the original bad boy of poetry, Lord Byron.'
'The Abbey was founded in 1163,
'but after the dissolution of the monasteries in the 16th century,
'it was secured by the Barons Byron and is best known as the home
'of the romantic poet Lord George Byron.'
'Margie is meeting with Penny Beniston to find out more.'
This is our grand salon.
Oh, another beautiful room. There he is.
-Lovely portrait of him, isn't it? Very handsome.
-Painted by Thomas Phillips.
-And how old was he?
It was painted in 1813,
-Oh, his prime.
He was like a pop star, wasn't he?
Yes. He was, uh, a very, erm... big celebrity.
-And had he started writing then?
-Yes, he started at a very young age.
-Very young age.
-All that wonderful talent.
He was starting to get his work published, starting to get known.
'Born in 1788, Byron's literary reputation was often overshadowed
'by his shocking aristocratic excesses.'
When Byron came here aged 21,
he... dug the cloisters,
looking for treasure.
Didn't find any, but found some skulls,
so, Byron being Byron,
decided to send it to a local silversmith
and have it mounted to make it into a drinking vessel.
-Very disrespectful, wasn't it?
'Byron's rebellious temperament was often a mark of his poems -
'among them Don Juan and Childe Harold's Pilgrimage.'
This is the iconic room. This is Byron's study.
-Where all his inspiration came from.
Did he ever write down WHAT inspired him to write?
He wrote a lot about how Newstead Abbey had inspired him
and his loves of his life inspired him,
his mother inspired him,
his dog - he was inspired by everything.
'It was Byron's sexual exploits that he's best remembered for.'
'One lover, married Lady Caroline Lamb, described him as "mad, bad
'"and dangerous to know".'
Oh, my word. Did I ever think that I would go into Byron's bedroom?
This is Byron's bed.
-Gosh. He was known as a great Lothario, wasn't he?
He was young when he died, he was only 36,
but in that time, he'd had well over 200 lovers.
When did he write his poetry?!
He was inspired by everything that he did here,
so he must've stayed up very late at night.
So if these walls could speak...
Oh, yes. I wonder what they'd say.
Might learn a thing or two!
'Leaving behind a trail of broken hearts,
'Byron fled Britain in 1816 and died fighting for Greek independence.'
'His heart was buried in Greece, his body was buried
'near Newstead Abbey, making him a part of England evermore.'
'Leaving Margie in Byron's bedroom,
'the other man in her life, David Barby,
'has travelled 30 miles east to Newark.'
'Situated on the River Trent,
'the town's skyline is dominated by the remains of Newark Castle,
'but as magnificent as it is,
'David isn't here for sightseeing.'
'It's the last shop of the day and time is short.'
I like that.
-'What is it, David?'
-They've labelled it a peat bucket.
It's nice and heavy.
It's got some age to it.
I like the brass banding on it.
I'm going to ask how much this can be. I rather like this.
'It's £48. I wonder if David can work his magic.'
'The dealer isn't on site, so manager Janet makes a call.'
'But with the shop about to close, negotiating time is limited.'
'Over to you, Janet.'
Well, we managed to get 40 on this.
-I'm sorry, that's all we could get.
-Oh, dear, this is terrible.
-'What, spending money?'
..two. Thank you.
'Cheer up, David. It's not that bad.'
'Let's hope the peat bucket doesn't PAIL into insignificance
'when it hits the auction, eh? Night-night, David.'
'It's a brand-new day and as our experts head onto the open road,
'David is worried that Margie is gaining ground.'
You're poised to beat me.
-You're like a praying mantis, you're there...
-..on my heels!
I knew you'd be a formidable opponent.
'So far, David has spent £130 on three lots -
'a Norwegian brooch, a Danish silver beaker and a peat bucket -
'which leaves him £387.34 to splash.'
'Margie, meanwhile, has spent £140 on two items -
'a Carlton Ware vase with lid and a silver and tortoiseshell box -
'leaving her with £199.30 for the day ahead.'
'With David in the driving seat,
'our happy campers head north to their next destination in Worksop.'
-Ah, last drop-off.
-I feel very emotional about this.
-Very, very emotional.
-It certainly does.
-All the very best.
-And to you.
-OK, enjoy it.
-See you later.
-If I can have a quick look round?
-By all means.
'Now & Then, as the name suggests,
'is a mixture of old and new.'
Hmm. Sort of, retro 1960s dressing table.
I like the price.
And Meredew is quite a well-known maker.
And, sort of,... veneer. Let's just have a look.
Dave, can I have a word, please?
Can we do a good deal on that?
I can do that for 15 for you.
-Ohh... That's ridiculous.
-It is. Giveaway.
Put it there. SHE LAUGHS
'Oh, groovy, Barby.'
'From retro to Retford - David has driven on to Empire Antiques,
'his final shop of the day.'
Dealer looks busy at the moment,
so I'm going to start perambulating around here.
'Good idea! A bit of perabulating will always
'get you somewhere.'
What is interesting about this selection
is that it is all contained
in a pine cabinet-maker's box.
I would put the box at £40-50.
The planes -
and there's 40 of them - I'd put at round about a fiver each.
this could go between
£200 and £250,
if not more.
-You own this place?
Oh, well done. Don't call me "sir"! It's David!
-I'm looking at this box of tools.
-Erm, I see you've got £180 on it...
-What's your best...
You've hit the nail on the head!
No, what's the very best you can do on that?
What about 140?
-Would you consider coming down a little lower?
-Make me an offer.
I'd like to see it round about 100.
-What about 120?
-Split the difference at 110.
-And that's how you do business!
I'll continue on my perambulations. I need one more other item.
-If you need me, you know where I am.
-Thank you very much.
'A little more perambulating
'and magpie David is drawn to the silver once more.'
What's the best price on these?
I can't really go any lower than 30 on them, I'm afraid.
So these would be, what,... about 1960?
Yeah. They're fairly modern.
-They're still photograph frames.
-Yeah, they're still pretty.
You know, I never buy anything modern.
But they're not modern, they're vintage. THEY LAUGH
-And they're a pair, aren't they?
HE LAUGHS Did I jump the gun, then?
I'm not going to get you down on those!
Well, that's my two objects.
So that's 110 for the box
and, uh, £30 for these, so £140.
Right. I'm so delighted I've bought from you.
'Shopping complete, David drives onto Gainsborough
'where he plans to let the train take the strain.'
-"Bing-bong! Will passenger David Barby please go to platform one
"to meet Richard Wood. Bing-bong!"
Wow, wow, wow! This reminds me of my youth.
I had a train set when I was quite young.
I don't think mine was as grand as that, probably a bit larger.
Well, the models that would be available in your youth,
manufactured by Hornby and Bassett-Lowke,
were crude replicas of the real thing,
whereas these are scale models of the real thing.
Right, so I had the crude version.
I'm sorry about that!
In fact, at the time,
-my father played with it more than I did!
-That's often the case.
'The Gainsborough Model Railway Society was established in 1946
'by a group of like-minded enthusiasts.'
'Within four years, their collection had grown so large,
'they found a new home in this former school.'
If I'm a member of the public, where do you start this tour?
The first thing we do is walk down past King's Cross.
The buildings, signal box and all of this here
is modelled on the real King's Cross.
-This is absolutely magical.
Absolutely magical. You've got no idea,
until you get to this level, the people...
The hours and hours of work it took to create it, it's tremendous.
-How long did it take?
-This was done over about ten years.
Looking through here, you get some idea of the perspective.
And the passengers,
this is brilliant.
Is there something of a child still in you?
-That you love playing with these?
-I think there must be.
And what a wonderful form of relaxation.
Well, it doesn't get you into so much trouble as other hobbies!
'And what a hobby. This collection recreates
'the line from King's Cross to Leeds
'using a mile and a half of track and 160 trains.'
'All the locos are hand-made and take 200-300 hours to produce.'
'It's a Boy's Own dream!'
-Now, then, David.
Would you like to have a go at operating one of the trains?
-Do I have a controller's hat?
-Definitely. I think it's there.
-Is it really?
-Yes. THEY LAUGH
Right, Mick. Please stand by me.
-I will do that.
-So I don't press the wrong buttons
or throw the wrong switches - I think that's the expression!
Right. Now, what happens?
That's your bell to King's Cross,
-that's your controller from King's Cross.
That's off. That's on.
-That's full speed.
It's leaving King's Cross.
'Not sure if that's Thomas the Tank Engine,
'but I just spotted the Fat Controller. Sorry, David.'
Ohhh! There we are!
What a sight - look at that!
'Boys and their toys, eh?'
'Look at him.'
-Where's it going to come through?
-Through the tunnel over there.
Top or bottom?
-Whoa! There we are.
-Don't forget the controller.
Now switch it off.
The only thing that was missing -
my father used to put the end of his cigarette into the funnel!
So it would smoke as it went round!
Mick, you've given me great pleasure. All of you, thank you.
'Whilst David was train spotting,
'Margie has made tracks of her own to Market Rasen.'
Well, wish me luck.
'Her final port of call is Wold Antiques.'
-DOOR BELL JANGLES
-How do you do?
-I'll just shoot round.
-I'm here to help.
-Thank you. Lovely shop.
These are nice, aren't they?
Surveyor's tape. Measuring tape.
Extremely good condition.
£34. That's cheap, isn't it?
It's nice. Very nice.
-They do sell well.
-Yeah, I'm sure.
-I'm going to look upstairs if that's all right.
'Come on, Margie. Tick-tock.'
Here we go. Oooh...
'These mirrors date from around 1890.'
'Oriental in style, they feature carved dragons
'with ivory eyes.'
I like those. Yeah.
Lynn? Have you got a minute?
Yes, no problem.
I rather like these two mirrors,
being a pair, being Oriental.
-How much are they?
Well, the best I can do
-125. That's absolute...
-It is, I'm afraid.
'That's a big purchase by Margie's standards and a bit of a gamble.'
That's one, two, three,
four, five, six.
You were very helpful.
'And she's not done yet.'
Lynn, shall I go for something else?
You should go for the measure.
-Yeah. £20, please.
-There you go.
'So, with the shopping over, it's time to show and tell.'
Margie, this is the last reveal.
And as a gentleman,
I think ladies should go first.
-Are you ready?
How very, very brave.
I'm just going to stand and look at this... dressing table.
-Who's it by?
-A company called Meredew.
Is it 1956? '58?
-I think '60s.
I imagine, because it's brave, you paid very little. I think about £20.
'It's a bargain.'
What could you get for £15?
A Meredew dressing table!
-I'm quite pleased with it.
-I think it's very nice.
-How pretty is that?
-Is it Carlton?
-Yeah. Early Carlton.
Ooh, that's lovely.
-I love that. I think it'll make 60 at the auction.
-Is that all?
It's rubbed on the top and a crack on the bottom, but it's very nice!
-You cheeky monkey.
-It's very nice. I like that.
And my third choice has to be this lovely, lovely silver piece.
-Yeah, that's lovely.
With inlay decoration. Oh, that's beautiful.
-Yeah. Those two, I love.
And I paid...?
-You can't buy that for 60.
-How much did you pay for it?
'I'm not sure David would've paid that.'
-Right, it's my turn now.
-Yes, your turn.
-Oh, dear, oh, dear.
-Is that a tool box?
Oh, my goodness. You've done well there.
Do you think so?
-Well, whatever you've paid. How much?
-Have a guess.
No. No, I didn't.
-No, I didn't.
Go on, tell me.
I paid 110.
I think you have done amazingly.
Right, what's the next thing?
-Tell me about that.
-Well, I think this is stunning.
-Isn't it sweet?
-How much did you pay?
-Er, that's probably one of my expensive buys.
-Have a guess.
-No, I'm not. I'm too fed up to guess!
I paid... £20.
And which shop was that?
The shop we went in together!
-That is well found.
-I love that.
-I wanted that for myself.
-And are these silver?
-They're a pair.
-Are they marked up?
-..just like a damn inquisition!
-I'm a bit grumpy, to be honest.
-There - you breathed on them!
I'm trying hard to be a good sport!
And I'm finding it a bit difficult!
-You've done well.
-No glass on that one.
-Again, that was an expensive buy.
-Oh, don't start. Go on.
£30, the two.
-Well done! Give me your hand, my friend.
'They spied the buys, but who will win the final prize?'
My favourite item of Margie's
would be the silver box with the tortoiseshell inlay. I like that.
I'd buy it myself. Wouldn't pay £90 though!
'It was £95, David. Pay attention. What about you, Margie?'
The tool box. You know, they usually empty them out or leave a couple in.
He's got 40 in there!
They're worth, 10, 15, £20 each.
But it couldn't happen to a nicer person
than David Barby. But I'm still a bit miffed!
'There's just one last stop
'as our experts head for the final auction in Lincoln.'
'St Mary's Cathedral was reputedly the tallest building in the world
'until 1549. The town's other accolade -
'it's the finishing line for this road trip. Ha!'
Margie, I... I feel sad, almost bordering on tears.
You know, it's the end of an affair.
THEY LAUGH Shhh!
It is like that, isn't it?
-Don't tell everybody!
-You've been such a part of my life!
And you in mine.
-It's been fabulous. I
-know so much about you - those intimate moments.
'Ahem. Moving swiftly on. Today, our experts
'are going head to head at Unique Auctions.'
'Let's see what auctioneer Terry Woodcock thinks of their buys.'
I think the one that will surprise me today is going to be
the retro dressing table.
That could do £20, it could do £120.
It's one of those unknown quantities.
But it is very, very clean.
And the tool box. The box on its own
has a good value, but you've got the tools inside too. It's a nice set.
It'll be a good day.
'David began today's road trip with £517.34
'and has spent £270 on five lots,
'leaving him with a cash stash of £247.34.'
'Margie started out with £339.30
'and has also bought five lots, costing £300,
'leaving her with a reserve of £39.30.'
'First up, it's Margie's 1930's surveyor's tape.'
'But will it measure up?'
Who'll start me at £20? £10, then?
£10 I've got.
At 10, I'll take 12 now. At £12, at £12. At £14.
At 16, seated.
At 16. No? At 16. I'll take 17 if it'll help.
17, back in at £17.
He's trying hard.
-At £17. 17 it is.
-HE BANGS GAVEL
-That's a ripping start(!)
-Hasn't done the trick, has it, Margie?
'The measuring tape falls short for Margie with a loss of £3.'
Shouldn't've bought it!
'David's first item is the peat bucket with brass bands.'
Start somewhere sensible. £30?
Start it with me at £10 only. 10. I'm now looking for 12. At 12.
14, 16, 18, 20,
22, 24, 26, 28...
-Oh, heaven's sake!
-THEY ALL LAUGH
Another one. 32.
At £32. I'm looking now for 34.
Have you all done? Selling at 32.
Oh, I'm sorry, love.
'Oh, love, I'm sorry too. There's a hole in your bucket, dear David!'
It's only £8 loss.
-How much was yours? 3?
'Don't tell me it's going to be another battle of the losses.'
'Brace yourself. Margie's charming Carlton Ware vase and lid next.'
Start it straight in at 30.
-What are we on at the moment?
-It's your lot. Telephone bid on it.
-'Keep up, Margie.'
-45. 50 on commission. At £50.
55 has put me out. 55 it is.
60 on the phone. 65.
65 against you. Yes.
70 on the phone. 75.
-80 on the phone.
< 90... 95.
-100 straight in.
-100 it is.
-I'm looking for 105.
-Looking for... 105.
105. 110 I'm looking for.
This is unbelievable. Oh, my God, what's happening?
You've bought the right thing.
Out. 120 in the room. At £120.
At 120 I've got on my left. At 120.
120 it is. HE BANGS GAVEL
'Cor, it was a slow burn, but the vase puts Margie in the lead
'with a healthy profit indeed.'
-Are you upset?
-Of course I'm not! I'm delighted for you.
Bless you, you're such a good sport.
'Can David fight back with a pair of silver picture frames?'
To save time, I'm going straight in at £80.
-It should make twice that.
£80 with me. At £80.
At 80. There's £40 each.
At £40. 85.
-and 10, 120, 130...
-Oh, my gosh.
-Oh, my goodness.
-They're worth more than that.
At 150 I've got it.
Back in, 155, and it puts me out at 155.
-Why tell me that?
I think you've been lucky.
GAVEL BANGS That is ridiculous. 155 for two modern frames?!
-Thank you, Margie.
'The master has done it again and turned a £30 spend
'into a £125 profit. Wow.'
Well, you've really rushed ahead now.
We've still got your silver box to come up.
'And here it is. Can the silver and tortoiseshell box
'put Margie back in contention?'
One of the nicest examples I've seen for a long time
and I think I'll save time, like 367,
and go straight in at £50.
At £50. I'm now looking for 55.
At £50 I've got. At £50. Come on, now. Got a long way to go.
-55, the lady. £60 with me. 65.
£70 with me. At £70, still on commission.
75 has put my commissions out.
At 75. At 75, I'm now looking for 80. 80, fresh bid.
At £80 at the back, she shakes her head. £80.
It is yours at 80, yes. £80, have you all done?
-80 it is.
-I think it should've gone for more.
Should've gone for about 120.
'Slow off the mark,
'the tortoiseshell box proves unfashionable here.'
Oh, flip, flip, flip. I'm going off silver, you know.
'Next up for David, it's the Norwegian brooch,
'but will it A-FJORD him a big profit?'
I've got two, three commissions on it
and I can go straight in at £20.
-At 20, I'm looking for 25.
-There you go.
-..30, 35, 40,
45, 50, 55, 60...
-Yeah, yeah, yeah.
-It's worth more than that.
-Come on, come on.
-95 behind you.
-Make it 100.
-Right on the back wall.
-This is superb.
-100, back in.
100, he shakes his head. 100 I've got.
-That is still cheap.
100 I've got. At £100, have you all done?
HE BANGS GAVEL Streaking ahead. Buy a pen with the profit.
'Another remarkable mark-up for the master. Give the man a medal!'
-That was good.
'Enter the dragon... mirrors.'
'They're Margie's most expensive buy. Oh, crumbs.'
£45 on the lowest commission. I'm now looking for 50.
At 45 I've got. At 45, have you all finished?
-Oh, for... Oh, you're joking.
55, 60, 65,
80 I'm out. At £80. At £80, it's in the room.
£80. Have you all done?
-HE BANGS GAVEL
-11 has bought them.
Don't worry, more to come.
'Oh, lordy. Not a wise buy, Margie.'
That is such a shame. £40 for each of those. Darn it.
'Will David's next item give cause for celebration?'
'The Danish silver beaker.'
Lovely piece. And I've got several commissions.
I'm going straight in at 50 and I want 60.
80, 85 with me.
No, he shakes his head. £85. That's not even scrap.
100. And 10.
I've got 110 on commission, I'm now looking for 115.
At 110, have you all done?
115, the lady. 120.
135, fresh bid.
136. I've got the gentleman there at 136.
137 I've got there, then. At 137.
At 137. It's better than money in the bank, but he's got it.
-HE BANGS GAVEL
-137 it is.
I thought that'd run on. And the frames, which aren't worth so much -
-it's funny, isn't it?
-It's a puzzle, isn't it?
'A £67 profit is nothing to be puzzled about.'
You've only made one loss today.
'A bit of retro now - Margie's vintage dressing table.'
'Will it MAKE-UP the difference between her and David?'
Who'll start me at £100? Who'll start me at £50, then?
Come on, surely. £30 I'll take to get me started. 20 I've got.
At 20. I'll take 25. 25, the lady.
30, 35, 40...
No? At £40.
-At 40. 45, thank you.
-That's enough, Margie.
-HE BANGS GAVEL
-I've over doubled my money!
'It was a gamble, but it furnishes Margie with a nice profit.'
-That makes more profit
than my lovely circular tortoiseshell and silver box.
'David's final item is the cabinet-maker's box.'
I've got several commissions on this.
-I'll start it at the lowest - £60.
I'm looking for 65. 65.
-Oh, here he goes again.
..5, 90. At £90 with me. At £90.
And 5. 110.
125 will put me out.
125. At £125.
-All done? You sure?
-HE BANGS GAVEL
You should be relieved. Are you relieved? Come on.
'David's tool box SHAVES a small profit,
'wiped out on the commission,
'but has he secured the final victory of the trip?'
'Margie started with £339.30
'and after auction costs, she's made a small loss of £15.46,
'giving her a final total of £323.84.'
'Poor old love.'
'David started out with £517.34
'and made a profit of £180.18,
'increasing his final earnings to £697.52,
'with all profits going to Children In Need.'
'So David not only wins this leg, but the entire trip.'
'Double bubble. Well done.'
-There we go.
-Margie, the last sale.
-Can I just say one thing?
-The last hug.
-Thank you very much.
-The joy of this trip has been being with you.
-I've enjoyed it too.
-And you're the worthy victor.
-I think we acquitted ourselves
-exceedingly well, don't you?
-Yeah, but you've been brilliant.
-Right, one last drive.
-Yep, one last drive.
Into the sunset.
Ahhh. Are you ready? Here we go.
'As their road trip ends, we say au revoir, Margie,
'and bid a fond farewell to the master.'
'Thank you for so many happy memories. Night-night, David.'
MUSIC: "Don't Stop Me Now" by Queen
# Don't stop me cos I'm havin' a good time, havin' a good time
# I'm a shooting star, leaping through the sky like a tiger
# Defying the laws of gravity...
Drive on, Barby, drive on.
# ..Like Lady Godiva
# I'm gonna go, go, go, there's no stopping me
# I'm burning through the sky, yeah
# 200 degrees, that's why they call me Mr Fahrenheit
# I'm travelling at the speed of light
# I wanna make a supersonic woman of you
# Don't stop me, don't stop me, don't stop me, hey, hey, hey
# Don't stop me, don't stop me, ooh, ooh, ooh
# I like it, don't stop me, don't stop me, have a good time, good time
# Don't stop me, don't stop me...
What's the best on that?
-Shall we shop as a couple?
-I'd rather not. We're not married.
Is that your VERY best?
What do you mean? Is that "your very best"?
Why don't we celebrate?
# ..Burning through the sky, yeah
# 200 degrees, that's why they call me Mr Fahrenheit
# Travelling at the speed of light
# I wanna make a supersonic man outta you
# Don't stop me now
# I'm havin' such a good time, I'm havin' a ball...
-Are you a shopholic?
Don't say it! Oh, don't!
# I don't wanna stop at all... #
I've enjoyed this trip so unbelievably.
It's been a lovely experience
and such a happy team, it's like a family.
I don't feel as though I've been in a competition.
It's been good, it's been good. One of the best experiences I've had.
