Welcome to Cash In The Celebrity Attic
where we find treasures in the homes of the well-known
and help them sell them at auction for a good cause of their choice.
Today, I hope we're in for a bit of fun because we're meeting a comedian and all-round entertainer.
He's one of Britain's top touring comics
and he's even made the Queen laugh at his Royal Variety performances.
You may know him as a game show host or you've seen him in pantomime.
But you'll almost certainly remember him as the King of the Jungle with the rather squeaky voice.
Have you worked out who it is yet?
Today, I'm in Kent and I'm on my way to meet the very funny and talented Joe Pasquale.
'He's been performing on the stage and screen since the late 1980s.
'When Joe's not pulling faces in a variety show or appearing in West End productions,
'this funny man is hobnobbing with the rich and famous. And Joe's not only a king of comedy.
'He was crowned King of the Jungle on the hit reality series I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here.
'He's hosted The Price Is Right,
'so when it comes to knowing about retail value, I think we've found our man.
'With a career as diverse as one of his variety shows,
'I'm sure we'll find interesting items today and have a good laugh.
'Coming up on Cash In The Celebrity Attic, Joe's comedic charm has me tongue-tied over Elton John.'
-"All my love...Allan"?
-No, that says "Elton".
-Yes. Do you wear glasses normally?
-I should, shouldn't I?
'And forget a personal trainer. Joe has a better solution for keeping his figure fit.'
This is my muscle suit. In case I was ever lazy and didn't want to go down the gym, I just put this on.
'At auction, he plays the role of salesman.'
-Take it. Take it while it's hot...
-Yeah, well done.
'But will his sales technique win them over? Find out what happens when the hammer falls.'
'We've come to the peace and quiet of the Kent countryside for our rummage today.
'And I'm joined by our expert Jonty Hearnden who will spot the most valuable items for auction.'
-Jennie, how are you, darling?
-Jonty, how are you, sir?
-Good to see you.
-This is my sister Julie.
OK, how much money are we going to raise?
We want to raise £500. The stuff I'm putting in for the auction is a bit obscure.
I don't think you'll have a good idea on how to value a lot of this stuff cos I collect pants.
-I don't mean underwear. I mean strange stuff.
-It should be called Pants In The Attic this week.
-I have sold a pair of Queen Victoria's underpants.
-I've got my dad's stuff, but you don't want them.
-You've got a challenge, young man.
-I'll go off and see what I can find.
-You have set our man a challenge...
-Jonty, don't nick nothing! Sorry.
He's very well behaved. So this is your house?
This is a house I bought a few years ago as an investment. My tour manager lives here now.
I don't live far away, so we use this as a bit of a depot for all the props of the act.
Some of the stuff I'm putting into the auction today, so I use this as a bit of a warehouse.
-My tour manager is like the caretaker.
-Julie, you might find some quite nostalgic bits and pieces.
I think we're going to find more pants, rather than nostalgia, but yeah.
We want to raise £500. What charity is it for?
It's for the CPC, which is the Cerebral Palsy Centre here in Kent near Rochester.
It's a great little charity. It's a lovely centre not far from here
and it facilitates anybody in the area who suffers from cerebral palsy.
-OK, shall we look around the house?
-I think we should, yeah.
-Jonty's through there.
-Let's see if he's found anything.
'If this house stores as many props as Joe says it does, I can't wait to see what we're going to find.'
-Here he is!
-He's found something.
-What have you found?
-Have a look at this.
-He's found my good thing.
-Tell me more about this signed...
"Dear Bill, good luck with Sticky Fingers and have a successful evening. All my love...Allan"?
-No, that says "Elton", love.
-Yes. Do you wear glasses normally?
-I should, shouldn't I?
-That could have been his real name.
He probably changed his name to Elton after everybody called him Allan!
-When Bill Wyman opened Sticky Fingers... Remember he had that restaurant?
-Yeah, I do.
He invited me to the opening. I met him a couple of times. He was just a lovely bloke.
There were loads of people there. I met Spike Milligan. I've been a fan of Spike's since I was a kid.
And loads of his rock'n'roll mates had sent a load of gear to him to auction off.
I think it was a cancer research charity he was doing it for.
I'm a big fan of Allan, but he's more commonly known as Elton.
-So I bought this. I was just a huge fan of Elton John's.
-You've got two legends there.
-Yeah, it just says, "To Bill, good luck with Sticky Fingers."
I've had it on the wall for ages,
then my tour manager said, "I like Elton," so I let him have it up here.
It's a great thing to put into the auction sale. Elton John is such a big name.
Selling rock and pop memorabilia is a great thing to invest in,
simply because there are many areas in the market that are going up, rather than going down.
The estimate at a general sale
would be between £100 and £200, but if you've got big collectors there,
-then the price goes up even more.
-So that's a good thing?
It will be useful money for your charity.
It's a bit of a personal loss for me because I love Allan.
-I think you're so horrible!
-Let's go and find something else. I'll get this one right.
-You can't mistake some of the stuff out here.
-'We all make the odd mistake!
'Everyone knows Elton isn't his real name. I hope that's not him on the phone!
'Joe's getting down to business, but what's Julie found for us?'
Jonty, these were given by the charity - a painting and a book. Can you tell me about the painting?
Hold the book. Who have we got here?
-Alwyn Crawshaw. That's good. Have you heard of him?
-I'm afraid not.
-What we're looking at here is a print of his work, rather than an original watercolour.
Have a look across the surface here.
When it comes to watercolours, there are slightly different layers and slightly different tones.
If that was an original watercolour, you would see the tone changing colour when you moved it around.
But that is quite flat. And he's signed it just in the corner there.
-There are two signatures there.
One on the print, but he's signed the frame, the mount, rather than the actual picture itself.
He's actually a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, so he's a very big player.
He's a living artist, rather than an artist that has been and gone.
But he's highly regarded in the business and his art does sell at auction.
-Can I have a look at the book?
He was actually born in Yorkshire, but he studied at the Hastings School of Art,
which is from one end of the country to the other.
We can put these two items in the auction sale together
because we have the book and the signed, mounted print here.
There's a big price difference between original art and something that's a print like this,
but worth putting into the auction sale nonetheless. We're looking at £30 to £50.
-Thank you, charity.
-Yes, well done.
'There's no time to waste as we've hardly started yet.
'On top of the cupboard, I come across three board games from the hit show The Price Is Right.
'There's Joe's famous face on the box
'and his predecessors on the show, Leslie Crowther and Bruce Forsyth.
'Jonty estimates these retro games will go for £10 to £20,
'but if we've got any fans of The Price Is Right at the auction,
'I'm sure they'll pay a bit more.
'In the garage, I find exactly what Joe was talking about earlier - his theatrical props.
'I wonder where Polly fits into his life?
'And Julie's hot on the trail as well, but it's Joe who spots the next find -
'a picture that reality TV fans are sure to recognise.'
I have something here which you may be interested in,
particularly you, Jennie, because you've done it as well.
This is from when I done the jungle which was six years ago. That's when you done it as well?
-I did it in January. You did it in November?
This was a cartoon commissioned by my uncle. He got an artist to do it for me when I came out.
He's got all the people I did it with - Paul Burrell... You must have had some dinners with Paul Burrell.
-Just one or two.
-Cos at the time, his popularity was down. He brought his profile right up with that show.
It's got everybody in it - the emus that I made friends with.
Janet Street-Porter. That's Sheila Ferguson who I ended up having a bath with in the jungle.
-You've put Janet in a cauldron.
-Yeah. No, I didn't do it.
-Everybody picked on her a bit, but I loved her. I was petrified of her at first...
Strong lady. Really nice though. First three days, I was petrified of her.
I said to her, "Janet, you scare me. Can you pull it back a little bit?"
She went, "I'll never lose my temper with you. I'll lose my temper with Paul Burrell. I can't stand him."
She gave me a kiss and after that, we got on really well. Is that worth anything to anybody?
-I could sign it. There are a lot of people that are into the show.
-It would probably make sense to sign it on the back.
-Not on the glass?
It would rub off on the glass, but if you got it permanently on the back, that would be really good.
Whoever bought it, you could personally sign it. That would add to the value. Who was the artist?
I have no idea. My uncle got it commissioned on the south coast.
It's been very cleverly done. You've got all the characters, even Ant and Dec.
-Looking incredibly bald! They won't like that.
-A lot of high foreheads there.
It's still a very successful show. I think around 100 celebrities have now gone into the jungle.
So let's talk values. Let's think about a cold, stark auction room.
Without you there, we're looking at £50 to £80,
but with you there, it should be worth a lot more.
-It's terribly generous of you to give it away. It's quite special.
-Yeah, but it's a good cause.
-And I don't really look like that any more.
-No, you don't.
-You look gorgeous.
-You're just saying that. But yeah, I think it's cool. It's good.
'It's a generous gift, but will it attract some good bids?'
10 I'm bid. Looking for 12? 12.
14. 16. 18. 20.
-'Find out how much our jungle picture makes when the hammer falls.'
-If you're all done...?
'As we continue our rummage with comedian Joe Pasquale, Jonty finds a plush armchair.
'It's a modern reproduction modelled on a 19th century design and it belonged to Joe's late mother.
'Jonty gives it a price tag of £30 to £40.
'While he keeps up the good work, I steal Joe away to find out if he's a natural-born talent.'
-It's nice to have a little sit down.
-It is, yeah, rather than looking at all my pants.
-I think we've found some very nice things so far.
-Do you think so?
I want to know about how it all started for you, this life as a comedian.
-Were you funny at school?
-No, I was one of these insipid little kids up the back.
They called me Second-Hand Joe because my mum was into antiques.
Sadly, I lost my mum ten years ago. She went for a wander and never came back(!) She's been gone ten years.
She loved antiques. She loved rubbish. She loved second-hand stuff.
There was four of us - me, I've got two sisters and a younger brother.
And she used to drag us round all these jumble sales and it was full of old women everywhere.
And she'd hold a jumper up to me like this in front of all... And that'd be my school clothes.
At school, I was called Second-Hand Joe.
Because everything, you know... I got new shoes, but they weren't shoes. There was no heel on 'em.
No, I was a complete div at school. I didn't do a lot.
I wanted to be a geologist when I was younger, but I got run over when I was 13 and missed a year's schooling.
There's only one place you can go if you haven't got no exams and that was to work for the government.
I was a civil servant for a year - Department of Transport and Environment, Dangerous Goods Branch.
Then I got a job at Smithfield Meat Market, Ford's at Dagenham, spot-welding on Mark IV Cortinas,
a margarine factory, then I got a job at a holiday camp calling bingo and refereeing wrestling,
then I never looked back.
So that was the first inkling of you wanting to be an entertainer?
Yeah. I wanted to be a geologist. When that went out the window, I thought I'd be an actor.
I didn't want to work! I thought, "I can't do these jobs till I'm 65."
So you're a veteran of Royal Variety shows and really a household name,
but I think you moved into a different stratosphere with I'm A Celebrity.
Yeah. Out there, you don't think anyone's watching it or they must think you're a complete spanner.
When I came out, the diverse work I got offered...
I did The Price Is Right. We did 176 episodes of The Price Is Right in about three weeks.
We did four shows a day. I'm not very good at maths! Then I did a couple of movies, a lot of voiceover work.
-You've done some serious acting.
-I did Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead.
I did The Producers last year, a Ray Cooney farce,
all sorts of bits and pieces you wouldn't expect to be offered.
-And pantomime which you've done for very many years.
-Yeah, I've done it for 25 years now.
-You do a very wide spectrum of work.
-Yeah, that's what it's all about.
As you get older, you just want to try new things.
The last thing I want to do is get stuck in a rut.
-You really are a fascinating guy and there's a lot more to you than meets the eye.
-There's a lot more, yes.
-But we've got to get on with our rummage.
-Yes, find some more pants. Let's go.
'We're going to need to find more than just pants if we've any hope of raising his £500.
'Julie's been busy unwrapping a few more donated items from the charity.
'We'll happily take along this 20th century porcelain jug.
'Although it doesn't have a potter's mark, Jonty is sure
'his estimate of £30 to £50 will drum up some interest.
'Back in the garage, I have a close encounter with an alien,
'but the tables have turned as I'm abducting him for auction.
'And with good reason because this guy appeared in the blockbuster film The X-Files.
'He may be a prop, but we think he deserves a better home than Joe's garage.
'Someone might make a new friend of him if we ask for £40 to £60.
'And we might need some extra-terrestrial help as we're still a way off our target.
'Joe's found another item in need of closer inspection.'
Jonty, I have a lovely "vayse" or a vase. Depends how posh you want to be! It's donated from the charity.
-I don't know nothing about it. There's a lion on the front.
-Tell us about that.
Do you like it? What's your honest opinion?
It's the sort of thing my mum bought from a jumble sale when I was a kid.
I'm not saying that's good or bad or indifferent, but she'd get it and my dad would put his fags out in it.
-So it's a glorified ashtray as far as you're concerned?
-My dad would look at it that way, yeah.
We've got two lions - one on this side and one on the reverse as well.
-Above, we've got a knight's helmet.
-So it's English if there's a lion and a knight's helmet?
It has that English feel to it.
If we turn it upside down, we've got "Shelley, made in England".
It says "made in England". I was right. I didn't even look at that.
-I knew it. I'm a genius.
Underneath here, it says "Walter Slater".
Walter Slater was one of the chief designers from Shelley in the Edwardian period.
If you look at that, it has that sense of being about 100 years old, it has that Edwardian feel to it.
There's a great thing and a bad thing about this vase.
-I know what the bad thing is.
-Yes, I'll come to that, but let's talk about positives.
If you've got signed pots by Walter Slater, in good condition, they're worth a lot of money.
-So tell me the bad.
-The bad thing is it's been repaired on the bottom.
-I thought there was a big crack there.
But the problem with vases, particularly ceramic vases,
if they are damaged in this way, the price has really tumbled and fallen, as far as we're concerned.
But this has been damaged and damaged rather badly,
so it completely wipes any real, big value out of it, but it's still worth putting into the auction sale.
-I think maybe £50 to £100.
Anything we can get for it is great because they've donated it to us for the charity.
-It's a shame that it has been damaged, but life goes on.
'Damaged or not, £50 to £100
'is still a great addition to our haul.
'There's no question that Joe's a great entertainer, but what is he like as a brother?
'Julie joins us both.'
So, Joe, do you play this old Joanna?
I don't. The piano was already here in the place.
My tour manager plinks at it when he's feeling a little bit sad.
-I thought you'd be musical.
-No, not at all.
-These are some of your comics?
-My comics, yeah, Dracula Lives. Look how much it was - 8 pence!
I think that's from about 1973, something like that.
-Does that take you back to your childhood together?
-Yes, it does. I'm a bit older than Joseph.
-"Joseph", do you hear that?
-Where's this from - Joseph?
My mum always called him Joseph. We had a lot of Joes in the family,
-so to differentiate between old Joe, young Joe and baby Joe, Joseph was Joseph.
-My dad's Joe.
I had an Uncle Joe, my son's Joe and there's me, so there was four of us.
-In the family, you're always Joseph?
-Aw! That puts a whole new perspective on it.
-If I was naughty...
-It's like his proper name.
-Was he naughty?
-He wasn't really. He was quite good and quiet.
-I know I was.
-She was a nasty piece of work.
I had to drag him everywhere with me. "Julie, take Joseph with you."
Did you ever think he would be a very famous and successful entertainer and comedian?
-What do you mean, "no"? It's written in the stars, love.
It might have been in the stars, but it was in the bottom of the bucket when he was a kid.
-Had anyone in the family done anything like that?
-Dad was a bit of a singer.
-Mainly in the bath!
In the bath, but years ago, I think Dad had an audition for The Carroll Levis Discovery Show.
He actually did the show. He did the show on the radio.
It was like the predecessor to Hughie Green's Opportunity Knocks.
He went on it. He didn't win. Some dog playing the spoons won!
But the story goes that they wanted him to sing in a monastery garden.
My great-gran said he couldn't sing on a Sunday, so he never did any more than that.
-Great-Gran knows best!
Within the family, has it been a bit of a revelation that Joseph is so very talented?
-No-one is going to agree to me being very talented.
-No, we're all proud of him. He's done very well.
-"He's done very well."
-The boy's done good!
Tell me a bit more about the charity. Are you very involved with the cerebral palsy charity?
-Yeah, it goes back to the jungle a little bit. I did the jungle for them.
To keep that place open a year costs a quarter of a million quid.
And all the money that is raised at that place is done in-house from all these people that work for nothing.
-Do you go down there sometimes?
-I go down whenever I can. It's a nice place to go and visit.
So we're going to get that £500, I hope. We're doing well so far.
-Yeah, my pants are going to be... My specialist pants.
Let's go and find some more, eh?
'Seeing Joe and Julie together is like seeing two peas in a pod.
'Speaking of double acts, Jonty wonders if Sooty might sweep up!
'Joe's definitely on a mission. I love his enthusiasm, but can't he see what's right in front of him?
'Another piece belonging to Mum,
'this modern chaise longue might fetch £40-£60.
'We've definitely found a wonderful variety of items, which should help on sale day,
'but trust Joe to leave the best to last.'
OK, now Jonty...
I would like to know your opinion, right?
-Please don't snort!
That's a very basic animal sound I don't want to hear with this on.
Jonty... She's going "Snort!" in my ear!
-How much will we get for this?
-This could be the peak of your career to value this.
This is my muscle suit. In case I was ever lazy and didn't want to go down the gym.
But my little belly comes out the bottom. Stroke it gently.
Don't slap it, stroke it.
I want to feel your muscles.
-I don't want to touch you. I might get an electric shock.
-I had this made for panto.
I haven't worn it for a few years. When I stopped smoking, I put on a few stone,
but it fits me again now. I used it in Peter Pan.
I was Mr Smee. This is what I came out in to fight the Captain.
-Did it get a good laugh?
-It did. Especially with my belly hanging out.
-Put it away!
I'm a lot of bloke. What do you think, then?
I have to say after 30 years in antiques
-that I'm now at the pinnacle.
I totally agree.
-There's nowhere else to go but down.
-Let's put it in the auction sale
and the way to get the maximum effect is for you to wear it.
-Oh, yeah. I would just go in my pants
-with a g-string on.
-Imagine me, a g-string and this.
I bet you'd be the first one to put your hand up, Jonty.
-So you're going to go up there, sell it for us...
-In a g-string.
-Yeah. In a g-string.
-In a thong.
-Let's put £20-£30 on it.
-Is that all?
You'll get more for it.
-He's deflated now.
-You'll get more.
-What do you think, Joe?
-I want a oner for this, if I'm onstage in a thong.
-That's your challenge.
-Right. You help push them.
-We'll all help.
-For the moment.
-That's the end of the day. You don't have to rummage.
-We're going to call it quits now.
-I reckon if we add that
to what we've got... You wanted £500, didn't you, for cerebral palsy?
I'm not sure we're going to get it. Jonty's not quite sure we're going to get to £500,
-We're not there yet.
-He's undervalued this for a start.
He has totally undervalued it. He might know about vases, but not about muscular suits.
I can tell you that you wanted £500 and based on the lowest estimates we reckon you'll make £400,
-which is still very respectable.
-That's very good. Plus we've got the extra for this.
-Prove us wrong.
-Oh, don't worry.
'Joe's well suited for auction now
'and with some terrific items to boot.
'The Walter Slater vase, which could earn a tidy £50-£100.
'And the King of the Jungle caricature. At £50-£80,
'this reality TV memorabilia should lure the bidders.
'And, finally, the signed Elton John album. It's priced at £100-£200,
'but let's hope the Rocket Man can go even higher.
'Find out how much these and Joe's other items raise on auction day.
'Still to come:
'Joe can't help but try out a few laughs on the crowd.'
He was a very good painter. He done my kitchen.
'But then he has to show off his six-pack to get the ladies going.'
Do we have £32? £32?
Yeah, you know you want it, love. Yeah, £32.
'Will Joe's gags bring in the cash? Find out when the hammer falls.'
We had a brilliant time with Joe Pasquale. He had us in stitches.
But we did do a bit of work and today we've brought everything to Boningtons in Essex.
Remember, Joe wants to make £500 for his chosen charity,
so let's hope the bidders are in good humour and ready to buy when his items go under the hammer.
'Today's auction house specialises in fine art, antiques and all sorts of other collectables,
'so how will Joe's alien fit in with this discerning crowd?'
-Hello, you two.
-"Mirror, mirror, on the wall..."
Yeah, it reminds me of me in a rough state after a heavy night.
He is on the cover of the catalogue. That's really good news, actually.
Ordinarily, I would put no value on this at all, but as a prop from The X Files, £50-£60.
I have heard there's interest in it.
-That's very good news.
-I hope there's interest in the others!
-The muscle suit...
-We've got some weird and wacky items from Joe.
-Only to be expected.
-You've got to do really well for Joe and his charity.
-Excellent. Let's go and see them.
'While we wish good luck to our cosmic friend,
'Joe's among the crowd and seems to have chest envy.'
-Jonty, how are you, son?
-Saying farewell to your muscles?
-I am. I feel like Lovejoy.
I feel like Ian McShane in Lovejoy.
-There is some interest in your alien.
-He always attracts interest.
-Which item will you miss the most?
-The Price Is Right games. We used to sit down every Saturday night
and play The Price Is Right when we was on medication.
-Are you going to make him behave?
The auction's about to start so if you lead us out, Julie, we'll go and get a spot.
'As the auction gets underway, we start with the Price Is Right board games for £10-£20.'
Are you feeling strong?
-It's your games. Are you going to be sad?
-What will we do now? We'll have to play Kerplunk.
-That was a good game, actually.
-Buckaroo is my favourite.
Remember that? You put things on his back and he'd buck.
-We'd better get on with the auction.
-This is going to go.
-10 quid we want.
Start me at £10 for the three. 10 I'm bid. Looking for 12.
12. 14. 16. 18. 20.
26. 28. 30.
32? 30 is the bid here. Is there any advance on 30?
I'll sell at £30, then.
'Well, we had no trouble selling above Jonty's top estimate
'which might mean good news for the next item.'
-I'm intrigued as to how this will do. Your alien. There has been interest.
-Do we know who from?
-Somebody from outer space.
-Ho ho ho.
It was in the X Files film and there's a certificate saying that.
-It's a little bit of history. Worth 40 quid of anybody's money.
-Here we go.
And bids on commission start with me. I've got to come in on commission at 45.
With me at £50 on the book. I'm looking for 60 in the room. 60 I've got.
Is there 70 anywhere? 60 at the back.
It's good already.
I'll sell it at £60 if you're all done.
That's all right.
Perhaps our little friend pulled the Jedi mind trick on that bidder. We just earned another top sale.
Joe, it's your casting couch next.
It belonged to my mum, this did.
-She used to keep the dolls on it.
-Chaise longue, innit?
-What's that mean?
-A long lounger.
Oh, is that what it is?
-We want £40-£60.
-She'd be happy with that.
£40 for the chaise longue?
I'm bid. Looking for 5.
40 I'm bid. Looking for 5. 5. 50.
5. 60. 5.
70. 5. 80?
75's the bid. Is there £80 anywhere for the chaise longue?
I shall sell at £75, then. All done?
-I can't believe that.
-That was a good sale.
£15 over the top estimate. Will we fare as well
with the next piece of furniture?
-Tell me about this chair.
-It was my mum's. My dad gave it to me as he's downsized now.
He asked if I wanted it. So I've had it in my garage for the last few years.
I didn't want to give it away, but it'll go to a good cause now.
Bids on the book start with me at 35, 45, 50. £50 with me on commission.
I'm looking for 5 in the room. 5. I've got 60. 5 in the room.
Is there 70 anywhere? 70. 5.
80. 5. Yes, I've got 85.
90? 85 is the bid, to my left.
I'm selling it now at 85.
-Yeah, well done.
'That was a sentimental piece for Joe to part with.
'Up next is the watercolour print and book valued at £30-£50.'
This is the Alwyn Crawshaw print and the book.
-This came from the charity?
-Because it's a print, we won't get a vast amount for it,
-but I put £30-£50 on it so let's hope we get lots.
Let's get it up! Give them a chance! Eh, Joe?
Yeah, get it up. It's signed by Mr Cranshaw. He was a very good painter.
He done my kitchen. LAUGHTER
It is signed by Mr Cranshaw, Joe. You're right. Start me at £30.
At 30. Who wants it?
30 I'm bid. Looking for 5.
30 I'm bid. Looking for 5. All done at 30.
Yeah! Well done. Thank you very much.
'It looks as if Joe's sweet talking did the trick.
'All the money we raise today will help people with cerebral palsy.
'I wonder if Joe has any idea how much we've made so far.'
OK, that's the halfway point.
-I think we've done better than I anticipated. Have you added it up?
-How much is it?
£500 you wanted. At this halfway stage, you have got £280!
-Very good. Everything's sold.
-I think we'll get a break now.
-There's a few pieces I liked. Can I go now?
-You may indeed.

Look what I found.
I have no idea what this is or anything about it on the professional level,
other than a couple of things. It reminds me of when I was a kid.
I was 5 or 6 and went to see Peter Pan with my nan, starring Wendy Craig.
That drew me to it at first, but I do a bit of painting myself
so I'm always interested in composition.
Here there's a couple of double basses. When you look at it, it looks like
part of the decor there, but it's a double bass. So nothing was happening on the stage
when this was being drawn, but the most intriguing part
is this lady here. There's somebody else and they've got their elbow there.
They've got their back to the viewer. I find her the most intriguing part of this picture.
'Someone in the crowd likes it just as much as Joe and it's sold for £60.
'Time to get back to business.
'Joe's determined to flex those muscles.'
Thank you. This is the special piece from the Joe Pasquale collection.
I'll give you a little background.
First of all, I'll let you know the price range I was looking for.
This is very special to me.
I don't need it any more as I have bulked up anyway.
I was looking for about four grand, but Jonty has said that I should start at about 20 quid.
So we'll start the bidding at £20. Who'll give me £20 for this lovely Maximus Aurelius body suit?
£20. We're looking for £20. Yes, that lady over there!
Well done. 20 quid. You'll look good in this. I bet you're begging for me now.
Do we go in fives? £25 for the body suit?
25 there, Joe.
Oh, there's a foxy bloke! Well done, sir.
He's a lot of bloke. OK. Do we have £27?
That lady, would you like £27? Oh, you foxy mama! She's begging for me now.
Do we have £30? £30!
Do we have £32? £32? I don't want to force you. You know you want it, love.
Do we have 35 in the corner? Don't let me force you. Yes!
Are you...? Yeah! £36!
Will you go up 50p? £36.50?
I'm at £36. 50p?
£36 to the foxy lady. A big round of applause! There's one other bid!
What do you want? 40 quid? Yeah.
You're on, son! 40 quid. Do you want it? It's up to you.
41! ..Sorry, love. You nearly got shot of it, then.
£41 to the foxy lady. A big round of applause. Thank you. Well done.
Well done, everyone. Thank you. I'm going, cos I'm lactating.
-He sold it, did he?
'So he's not only good at getting a laugh,
'he got a brilliant sale, too.
'Our next lot was commissioned after Joe stole the show in I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.'
I wonder how this will do. Your King of the Jungle picture,
which I love. Lots of memories for us, but not for anyone else here.
I think there will be some interest. That was six years ago.
It's worth something to somebody.
-Julie, feeling good about it?
-Yes, there's lots of Joe Pasquale fans that'll...
(I'll have the money later.)
40 I'm bid. Looking for 5.
60, sir? I shall sell it at 55.
Take it while it's hot! Yeah, well done, sir.
'It took a bit of time to warm up, but we got there in the end.'
-OK, this is the lovely vase that was given by the charity.
-It's got quite a bit of damage.
-It's all chipped and cracked.
-I've still put £50 to maybe even £100 on it, so let's see what happens.
-As long as it goes.
Absolutely. Here it comes.
Start me at £40.
30 I'm bid. Is there 2 anywhere? I am bid £30.
I'm looking for 2. I shall sell at £30.
No advance at 30? It's got to go at 30.
-He let it go.
-Let it go.
'A bit of a disappointment there, but perhaps it was the damage
'that made the difference.
'The sale of our brown jug brought another £30.'
-We liked that.
'But we're still a way off the £500 target,
'so everything rests on our final lot. Will Elton do it for us?'
-Do you think it'll go?
If you like Elton John, it'll go. If not, no one will want it.
-See any Elton John fans?
-To be honest, no, I don't! Des O'Connor fans. That's about it.
-You're so rude. There might be commission bids. We'd like £100.
-It's got to be worth that.
-If they don't sell it here, they can sell it somewhere else.
Start me at £80. Is there 60 anywhere?
60 I'm bid. £60 I'm bid.
Is there 5? 5? 60 I'm bid.
It's a good thing. 5. 70. 5.
80. 5. 90.
5. 100? I shall sell it at £95 to our own Jonty lookalike.
I'm selling at 95. Are you all done at 95, then?
-Yeah! Well done, sir. 95 quid, that's good.
'It could have been better, but not a bad note to end on. So how much have we raised?'
-That's the end of the day.
-It was a lot better than I thought.
-These people have been great.
-I was a bit worried and I think Jonty was
-whether we could get anywhere near your target.
-Cos all my stuff is pants!
-You said it!
But you did very well and some of the furniture was good.
-You did brilliantly with the muscle man.
-They know a bit of class.
-£500 you were looking for.
Put it there, son.
-Well done, love. Brilliant.
-It'll mean a lot to the charity.
-Yes. I really enjoyed it.
I think the charity are going to be over the moon with that.
Considering I was selling a load of old BLEEP, it was great!
'Janice Dennis is the Chair of the Smiley Steps Centre in Kent.'
Cerebral palsy is a cerebral haemorrhage and it can happen at birth or even after birth.
It affects their ability, physical ability and mental ability.
They all have different severities of cerebral palsy, so some do some things and others do others.
Some are using walking frames. All different severities.
'The money Joe raised will buy toys and learning tools for the children.
'One person who has seen the difference first hand is Louise Taylor,
'who has come here with her son Joshua for the past two years.'
When Joshua came he was 17 months and he couldn't even sit up.
All he could do was lay on the floor and roll to play.
Within one month, they had him sitting up, which changed his whole perspective on the world.
He's now taking independent steps to walk around the room. The centre has been fantastic for us.
We were all chuffed for Joe. What a nice guy and a great result for him and his charity.
