I've got something pretty unusual in here.
-I don't know if you're going to be able to do anything with it.
How do you make Celebrity Money For Nothing?
I've got a house full of rubbish!
Entrepreneurs Sarah Moore and Jay Blades are searching celebrities' houses...
-I don't even know how we got in here. Let's get out of here.
..to find tip-bound items to transform...
-I had no idea they were even here.
..by having a really good look around some celebrity homes.
This is unbelievable!
With the help of some of Britain's best designers and makers...
and celebrity faces, we're on a mission to turn celebrity trash...
..into hard cash.
But what will our celebrities think of the transformations?
You are joking.
And how much money has been made for their charities?
£307 here for you.
Oh, my gosh. You're amazing, lady.
To get things started, Sarah has travelled to Worcestershire in the West Midlands.
She's got a spring in her step and has high expectations
because she gets to search in this place.
Waiting to show Sarah round is singer,
actress and TV personality Toyah Wilcox.
Toyah's career in show business has spanned over 40 years.
She's had 13 top 40 singles,
released over 20 albums,
and has written two books.
Toyah currently tours with her band
and appears in a variety of television programmes.
She lives with her husband, Robert,
the guitarist in the band King Crimson,
and she can't wait for Sarah to transform some trash.
The thought that something is going to go on and have a new purpose
in life I think is really a rewarding thing to do
and I'm excited to see what happens.
Well, let's get started.
-Hello! Sarah, come on in.
-Nice to see you.
-Really good to see you.
This modernised Georgian town house is a fitting abode for pop royalty -
or actual royalty.
Decked out in luxurious furnishings,
Sarah is here to sort the wheat from the chaff.
But at first glance, there doesn't seem to be much chaff.
What a beautiful Georgian house. I wasn't quite sure what to expect,
maybe something a bit more rock and roll, but it's very traditional.
-Have you been here long?
but my mother first brought me here when I was three years old
and it was a tearoom called The Willow Tea Room,
so I've known this place all my life.
When it was for sale, my husband and I came to view it, just to be nosy,
and we bought it and we've never regretted it, it's lovely.
I'd love to have a little look around if that's all right?
-Yeah, come with me.
-Brilliant, thank you.
So, this is one of the lounges in the house.
Right. Is this your design, your taste? Is this your feeling?
This is my husband's taste and I've grown into it.
I'm very minimalist, very modern and very quirky.
Well, I think that's really generous.
You can always slip in a bit of orange Perspex when he's not
-looking, see how he takes it.
-Yeah, but he'd take it out, he'd bin it.
I tell you, I was not expecting this in the house of an '80s pop star.
Although I'm sure the shoulder pads and bum bags are around here somewhere.
Let's get searching.
Sarah's on the hunt for two items to take from Toyah which
have the potential to be transformed and sold on for a profit.
This might interest you up here.
And Toyah's got a few items in mind for Sarah,
hidden in the best rummage room in any house.
If this is where you put your junk, great junk.
Although it doesn't much look like my attic.
I mean, where are all the Christmas decorations and rusty rollerblades?
That's more like it.
I see these are all stacked up.
They're not the same era as the other stuff in the house, are they?
These are about 1930. They belonged to my Aunt Sheila,
and there was originally a dresser with these and we've already given
the dresser away, so we're not using these chairs.
Well, that's great cos they've got a strong look.
I don't think it's particularly in fashion at the moment.
It falls between retro and antique, and there's a tricky area there, but
they look like they are really well made and they're in good condition.
I mean, they've had a great life with me.
They've been loved, but they're not right for the house.
Brilliant. Well, that would be amazing.
If you're not using them, I will definitely try and do something with them.
Thanks, Toyah. Those will do nicely.
So, four chairs, out of fashion,
up in the attic and definitely up for grabs,
so I'm really pleased that Toyah has had enough of these.
Nice find, Sarah, but while you look for your second item,
there's another singer ready for a rummage.
Jay is on his way.
For his own celebrity search, Jay is in the busy south-west of London.
And waiting for him is pop music's own wonder woman, Sinitta.
Yay! You like that?
Sinitta was Simon Cowell's first recording artist,
rising to fame with songs So Macho and Toy Boy.
-Go and get it.
has acted as a mentor on The X Factor
and has appeared in a number of West End shows.
She lives with her children and dog Scarlet,
and I can't wait to see what she has to offer.
There's a couple of things that I really wouldn't mind him taking,
that actually I'd even like him to take,
and then there's a few things that I don't even want him to look at,
even think about taking!
Good luck, Jay.
And don't be pestering Sinitta for an autograph, you're here to work, remember?
But if you could get one for me?
-How are you?
-I'm very good.
-This is going to be fun.
This ultramodern apartment is something to behold.
Huge in its layout but minimalist in its design.
It even includes its own fully operational studio and recording space.
There's lots to get round,
but finding things to take away might be a challenge.
This is the living room.
-This is more like a house.
-This is a house in a room.
-It's a house in a room.
-So, how long have you been here then?
Just about a year and a half.
But it took a long time to kind of build and design.
That's actually going to be a living wall,
you know when you put grass and plants on the wall?
It was going to be a tree and I was advised that it probably wasn't a good idea to have trees...
-In the house.
-Because people think I'm crazy.
It's like, I'm going to have a waterfall and two trees
-and they thought, "What?"
-So, I can't take anything from here.
-So, I'm a little bit sad about that, but I totally understand.
What would you have taken if I had let you take something?
-Oh, my gosh, let's go.
Behave yourself, Jay, you're here for junk, remember?
Keep an eye on him, Scarlet, would you?
-The master bedroom.
-Oh, this is nice, isn't it?
-I noticed there's a wardrobe in there.
-This is the closet, yes.
-This is it.
-Well, this is my closet.
Have you worn all of these shoes at some point?
At some point, at least once.
-Have you got any more shoes anywhere else?
-Oh, you have?
I was hoping you wouldn't ask me, because I'm not going to lie.
I can't take anything from here, can I?
Oh, no, no. I don't even know how we got in here.
-Let's get out of here.
Pity. You'd look great in those, Jay.
Sinitta's home is lovely,
but the one thing she does not have is clutter.
Jay is really up against it to find two things to take away.
But luckily Sinitta's thought of something that's back in the bedroom.
This fan, because I have now got a fan on the ceiling in here,
I don't need a fan, so that could be something.
OK. So, how long have you had this?
I've had it for about four or five years.
It was my boyfriend's before and he gave it to me one crazy, hot summer
and we carted it from room to room with us because it was just so hot.
Kind of unplugged and making its way to the door.
OK, right! Well, that's one item.
Yeah, I'll have that one. Thank you.
-Brilliant. Shoes are safe.
-Yeah, your shoes are safe.
Safe for now.
Well, we do love a challenge and this is definitely one of those.
Going to have to get creative on this one.
You'll have to be very creative to make money out of that.
Good luck with the rest of the hunt.
Back in Worcestershire,
Sarah is still working hard to find a second item from Toyah Wilcox.
I mean, look at that on you.
Well, kind of hard.
She already has the set of four chairs squirreled away,
but before they get back to the search, Toyah's got something to show Sarah.
This is my first outfit on Top Of The Pops.
-So it's a tunic, basic tunic.
And that's probably one of my most famous outfits.
It's like being in a museum of pop in here, isn't it?
What year were you wearing that?
-This is 1981.
-And look at those shoulders.
Big shoulders, big hair, what were we thinking?
So, come and have a look up here, Sarah.
I knew we'd get to the '80s stuff eventually.
Could you use a headdress?
And Toyah has kept it all.
This was used on a video shoot.
I definitely know they're yours, look.
But enough of the trip down memory lane.
Try looking for something you can take away and transform.
So, Sarah, just put your hand in there and pull stuff out.
They're about 35 years old and they are typical things
that you used to get in furniture shops back then,
that people just hung in corners of the room.
But if you could do anything with them, you're very welcome to have them.
I've got a few ideas of what we might be able to do with them, so if you're sure...
Absolutely, there's absolutely no way I'd ever use these again.
Lovely. Thank you.
They will do nicely.
The parasols are a real blast from the past,
because everybody had one of these.
I mean, there's loads of material to use here,
but they're going to be quite tricky to re-purpose.
I'm definitely going to give it a go.
-It's a pleasure.
I can't believe how lovely your house is and the things that I'm taking away,
-I'm going to work so hard to do my best with them.
-I'm so excited.
I know you're going to come up with something utterly unique,
-so thank you.
-Pleasure. It was a great day.
Utterly unique is just about right.
I'm very intrigued to see what Sarah's going to do with what she's taking away from my home.
I just find it wildly exciting that she's going to be unpredictable with things.
Just you wait, Toyah.
Sarah is taking away the set of four chairs and the parasols.
She's hoping to make big money from that lot,
so she'd better have some big ideas.
Back in London...
Is that from a video or something?
..Jay is currently admiring Sinitta's holiday snaps.
Keep your mind on the job, big man.
He already has her rickety fan to renovate.
Just one more item to go.
-You hold the baby.
-I'll be right back.
And it looks as if Sinitta's thought of something.
-There we go.
So, this beautiful thing...
Oh, that looks heavy. Hold on, I'll take that.
-You take Scarlet.
-This beautiful thing is a dish holder.
You put it inside drawers or something and it holds all your plates.
But my new cutlery and glass are too wide for it.
-It's a solid bit of timber.
-Yeah. It's lovely, right?
Yeah. This is perfect. So, how long have you had this then?
Oh, gosh, for years, it's gone from home to home.
-Finally it doesn't fit.
-I think I can do something with this.
As a matter of fact, I know I can do something with this.
-And I can definitely have it?
-You can definitely have it.
Can he have it? He can have it? She said you can have it.
Oh, thank you, both. Thank you.
Thanks, Scarlet. But what's the plan for that then, Jay?
It's a bit of a challenge.
Just had a little bit of an idea of what I could do with that.
I can hardly wait.
Sinitta, thank you for having me in your wonderful home.
-And for giving me those two items.
I'm going to hopefully get my creative juices working.
Amazing. I can't wait to see what you're going to do.
-Well, I'm going to bring it back and show you anyway.
-I can't wait. Good luck with it.
-OK, thank you.
Can't believe Jay took the fan,
but I'm really excited he took the plate holder,
because I think he can do something amazing with it.
Jay is taking away the wobbly fan and the dish rack.
It's been good fun rummaging around celebrities' houses,
but now it's time to get to work.
Our celebrities have given Sarah and Jay plenty to be getting on with,
and in West Sussex...
..Sarah is back home and about to start work
on Toyah's oriental-inspired parasols.
Now, Sarah, we don't want any bad luck with this project,
so whatever you do, don't open one of them indoors.
Oh, why does no-one ever listen to me?
Aren't they lovely parasols?
And don't worry, they're fine to go up inside, they're not umbrellas.
I've got six of these and they are decorative,
but I want to make them useful as well. I want to make them into lampshades.
They're quite tricky to work with though,
because they've got a really intricate structure,
but what I'd like to do is take a couple apart,
have a really good look at them and then make some proper plans.
Lampshades, that sounds all right.
That one's OK.
But if you just stuck them in six massive pina coladas, I'd buy them.
So, flatten this out a bit, make the structure of a lampshade.
Sarah begins to unpick the intricate bamboo structure holding the parasol shape.
Well, that's that done. Just got to cut these bits off.
Next, off comes the paper.
So eventually what we are left with is...
Don't really want to say.
Yeah, I'm thinking what you're thinking.
I'm in big trouble.
Yeah, well, I didn't want to say.
I'm going to get the wire out.
But all is not lost.
Sarah starts to join the inner spokes back together with steel
wire, which will hopefully give the parasol back its shape.
If you see one going in my eye, will you tell me?
These types of parasols, or oil-papered umbrellas,
originate from China where they are a traditional wedding present.
They are said to ward off evil spirits, with the round shapes
symbolising a happy and complete life.
But Sarah is far from happy.
They're just not coming together.
They really don't work as lampshades.
I'm really trying to force them into something.
But just putting it down here, it's a real moment of inspiration,
because these would make fantastic sunburst mirrors.
That's it, I'm going to U-turn, I'm going to stop making lighting
and I'm going to make fantastic sunburst mirrors.
What a relief.
Sunburst mirrors. Now that is a U-turn.
This is a much better idea.
Sunburst is a design pattern consisting of rays or beams
radiating out from a central disc.
I love a bit of sunburst.
And the last time they were fashionable was about after the war,
and that lovely uplifting, beautiful shape was on all the walls,
so there's nothing new going on here.
Sarah has ordered her new mirrors
and other materials and spent £27.46.
I hope she is right about this U-turn,
because it might just lead to a dead-end.
Over in East Sussex,
things are good to go for another Toyah transformation.
Sarah has sent the four dated brown chairs to our very own
woodworking wonder hunk Norman Wilkinson.
What Norman doesn't know about wood ain't worth knowing.
He uses his 25 years of experience to create handmade,
one-of-a-kind furniture that will last a lifetime.
Every morning before I go to work, I've done it for the last however long,
paper and a coffee and I can get going.
That's what I do. I'm self-taught, never been to college,
never took woodwork at school. It's worked for me
for all these years, so, yeah, really happy with it.
Norman certainly knows his onions,
but hasn't yet started on these old things.
Norman, hi, it's Sarah.
The boss is on the dog and bone to find out what new ideas
Norman can bring to these old chairs.
We could take them to the sandblasters and get them sandblasted.
That sounds amazing.
Norman's got a few tricks up his sleeve, so let's hear it.
Going to throw the seats away,
and we are going to take them to have them sandblasted so it gives it
a completely different look and feel
and hopefully it'll work really well.
It's an old-fashioned spruce up.
Norman will replace the seats and backs,
and the wood will be sandblasted down to its natural grain.
What could be simpler?
Well, we'll wait and see.
To start, Norman removes the seats and backs so he can send one of the
chairs to the sandblasters as a test, to see what it looks like.
Well, why don't you tell us, Norman?
Sandblasting, it's, um...
They use, um, well, sand, to be perfectly honest.
Fascinating. Tell me more.
The idea is that they clean it up,
but don't go too hard into it so it brings out the grain.
With the test chair sent off,
Norman moves on to making the brand-new seat bases,
and for this he is using old dusty floorboards?
The floorboards, I mean, we're not just going to chuck them on and
everything. I mean, we'll strip them and then we'll polish them.
It will give it a really, really nice finish.
Nothing screams luxury like the feeling you're sitting on the floor.
Depending on their condition, old floorboards are actually ideal
for reusing in furniture as they are traditionally made from hardwoods
such as elm or oak.
There's our floorboards that we've cut.
Obviously once we've stripped them and then we've stained them
and then polish them, they will look really, really lovely.
Well, we'll have to take your word for that, Norman.
In the meantime, Norman's test chair is back from the sandblasters,
so how's it looking?
It's a lot, lot lighter.
We're going to run with it now cos it is lighter.
So, yeah, we're rocking and rolling.
It does look lighter, yes,
but it also looks like 100 cats have been scratching at it.
Norman and Sarah agreed on a budget of £400
to transform all four chairs.
Norman better make them gorgeous soon, because
scratchy wood and dusty floorboards don't sound very saleable.
With Sarah's items starting to take shape, in Wolverhampton, Jay's
hoping that he can rack up a profit with Sinitta's old crockery stand.
He did say he had something in mind for it.
So let's hear it.
I do love a challenge and Sinitta has definitely handed me one here.
I'm going to turn it into a music light box.
This is what's going to give me the light - the LEDs.
And this is what's going to give me the music,
this is a Bluetooth speaker.
To make the box itself, Jay is first cutting the plate rack into three.
One down, two more to go.
The lights and speaker Jay is installing are readily available
consumer units that don't require any additional wiring.
Just plug 'em in and party.
Yes! Now, that is perfect. I thought it would fit, anyway.
But the colour is not good for showing off light,
so I'm going to give this an overall coat of paint,
probably going to spray it black.
Jay's using a water-based paint and is spraying the plate rack
in a well-ventilated area.
Compared with traditional solvent-based paints,
water-based paints are not only safer to use for humans,
but are better for the environment too.
So now I've got it all sprayed up,
all I've got to do is put everything back together again.
Jay is racing through this one.
I wonder what music will be played through a dish rack music box!
Rack and roll?
That's all I've got.
Jay's attaching a custom top he made from scrap wood to two sides of the box,
leaving the back off for now so he can fit in all his goodies.
So far, Jay's spent £44.98 on all the bits and bobs for the light box.
He'll no doubt make it look smart,
but it will all be for nothing if it doesn't sound good too.
For the next stop in our junk journey, we're in Manchester.
Jay has sent Sinitta's failing fan to the man who can - Mark Haig.
Bright spark Mark uses his decades of engineering experience
to create one-of-a-kind sculptures from second-hand materials.
Although his true passion is robots.
The thing I love about robots,
I've just always been a fan of science fiction,
and all those B-movies when I was a kid.
It just took me to a different place.
There's always a challenge, every sculpture that I build has got
a different challenge to it.
So taking something that is broken and then making it into
something that's desirable, that works for me.
You like a challenge, Mark?
Well, you've got one!
Hi, Mark, how are you doing?
Jay's on the phone to find out what kind of robot Mark has in mind.
Japanese fighting Ninja robot?
I can't see it being a robot, I'm afraid.
Oh, I was looking forward to that.
Any other ideas, then?
Have you seen those kind of steampunk lights?
Imagine, like, having a pole and then making sort of a kebab
out of lots of interesting bits as it rises up.
Are you with me?
But if Jay's on board, kebab light it is!
All right. Bye-bye now, bye.
It's going to be kind of a steampunk-themed light.
Some interesting things to come down the base.
What, like onions, peppers?
Hopefully it will be an interesting and nice piece.
This is making me hungry! When do we stop for lunch?
Let's get started.
Mark begins to strip the fan of any plastic, so he's left with
just the metal bits that he can incorporate back into his light.
One thing that's nice about what I'm working on here
is that it's got standard screws.
Some manufacturers actually make them so they're extremely
difficult to get into and actually repair.
So I'm happy that this is more or less dismantled now.
And I said to Jay that I was going to do this sort of kebab thing with the base.
So let's have a rummage.
Let's call him a collector of junk.
He can't pass a skip or car-boot sale without picking something up
he might one day find a use for.
Yeah, happy with that.
Most of his finds feel at home around the artistic subculture of steampunk.
It's got some weight to it, so I might not need a base.
Steampunk is inspired by 19th century industrial machinery
which is incorporated into art, clothing, furniture...
So, if you imagine you've got this sort of steampunk-type thing
going on with these different elements.
And then, piece de resistance,
is somehow that is going to go on the front there,
then that is the kind of structure I was talking about.
Of course. A kebab windmill.
Just what everybody needs!
This looks like it could take a while.
Let's leave him to it.
Mark and Jay have agreed on a budget of £200 for the light.
He'd better produce something nice soon because at the moment,
it's less steampunk and more steam junk.
Back in West Sussex...
..Sarah is hammering in the last bits and bobs
of her new sunburst mirrors.
But was changing her mind halfway through the right decision?
Well, there's no turning back now!
Well, that's the mirror on.
Stuck really fast.
Looks quite good. A few finishing touches.
Quite good? That's the spirit.
Before, Toyah's parasols were hidden away in the dark.
..they have been lit up as a set of shimmering sunburst mirrors.
Sarah spray-painted the bamboo glimmering metallic colours
which shine like the sun itself.
All finished off with empty bullet cartridges Sarah sourced from
a local shooting range, placed on the tips of the beams.
Sarah's a smart cookie for spotting the sunshine in those umbrellas.
What a transformation.
That was one fiddly project.
But it's unusual, it's striking, and I hope it's something
that people are going to want to have in their homes.
And I've got four made, so that's fantastic.
Well, let's get them sold.
Sarah fired off pictures of the mirrors to every nook and cranny of the internet.
And...she sold them!
To a vintage homewares shop in Southwold.
And owner Andy couldn't wait to hang them on the wall.
Great addition to our retro room.
This is an unusual piece, a one-off. It'll fly out.
I'm glad you're happy, Andy.
They really are cool.
But how much profit did they make?
That's our first sale in the bag.
Sarah's in East Sussex to check on Norman
and Toyah's four brown chairs.
When we left him, Norman was about to start.
Sorry, am I boring you, Norman?
I think it might have been a late night.
It went wrong in places,
but we've rectified it and I think the end result has worked well,
so let's just wait and see what the boss thinks.
Ah, there's been problems. Come to think of it,
I don't remember him saying he was going to paint them white.
Well, I'm here in Sussex to see my woodworking wonder man, Norman.
He's got Toyah's chairs, £100 each to spend on them.
I hope he's done something fabulous!
Before Norman got to work on them, Toyah's chairs
were dark, dated and firmly stuck in the past.
..they're light, bright, and bursting with character.
Norman's brand-new floorboard seats and backrests have
scrubbed up beautifully, turning these chairs from old and bleak
into country cottage chic.
The sandblasting has really brought out the natural grain of the wood,
which contrasts nicely with the smooth, polished seat bases.
And as for the last minute white paint job,
I'll let Norman tell you.
-Are they the same ones?
No, no, different set.
-What do you think of them then?
-They've come up well, haven't they?
Yes, they have come up well.
We had a little disaster along the way.
Why, what happened, what happened?
We sealed them to try and keep them light,
and when we sealed them, we turned them a bit orange.
-So... Orange, yeah.
-We don't like orange, we don't like orange.
It should have stayed clear and it didn't, so we ended up liming them
but I think it actually works really well.
The lime is really bringing out all of that texture that you've brought up in the oak.
Yes, it's been in the sandblaster, so it's got a lovely texture and feel to it.
Are they comfortable? Have you sat on them?
-They sit perfectly.
-Have you sat on them?
-Of course I have.
-Go on, then, take a pew.
-You take one, I'll take one.
It looks like they have passed the comfy bum test.
Now down to business.
Norman had a budget of £100 per chair for this project.
But how did he get on?
Talk me through the money, how did you get on?
We came in on budget, but we're actually going to do them £10 less each.
-90 quid each?
-90 quid each, yeah.
-90 quid each, you are a little
-cupcake, thank you, they are lovely, thank you.
I'm happy. I mean, yes, they didn't quite go as we wanted,
we had a bit more work on them than we thought, but I'm glad
Sarah's pleased, I'm pleased, so we are all a winner.
Well, the woodworking wonder man has swooped in and saved yet more furniture.
He's overachieved and he's under budget.
Can't get better than that!
So excited was Sarah about selling those chairs
that she skipped all the way home.
Seriously, she should have just taken the car.
But as soon as the pictures of the chairs were shared online, they were snapped up...
..by a vintage home furnishings shop in Kent,
and owner Maria couldn't be happier.
They look even better than they did in the photograph, I love them.
I love the carving and I love what the limed effect has done to them.
Sarah's tallied up her sales and is back in Worcestershire
to show Toyah what's been made and hand over the profit.
I'm so excited to see Sarah again,
I can't wait to see what she's done with the items I gave her.
The craftsmen she chooses are always fantastic, so I'm hoping
to see something very contemporary and very bright.
Just wait until you see those mirrors.
-Hello, come on in.
-It's really good to see you again.
So the set of chairs, I took them to a guy called Norman.
So he had a good look at them and he actually sandblasted them
-and gave them a bit of a new look.
-I can't wait to see!
I've got some pictures here to show you.
Do you know, I wouldn't in a million years have thought of
doing anything like that. I think they're fantastic.
-I'd have them here.
-They've actually sold for a profit.
-So there's £125.
-Oh, well done!
Next, the parasols.
There was one that wasn't in great condition, so I stripped it down
and when I came to look at it,
it suddenly reminded me of a sunburst mirror.
So I took them and I made them into these.
They now look like that.
That is just...
Those are absolutely brilliant, Sarah, they're brilliant.
They have sold, in fact,
and gone off to a shop so there is profit from those.
They managed to make £157.54 on those, so I have got the total here.
There is £282.54 there for you.
That is so brilliant.
And thank you so much for saving them from the tip.
Have you got a charity in mind?
Yes, my Aunt Sheila's hospice was the Shakespeare Hospice
in Stratford-upon-Avon and that's where this is going.
And thank you on her behalf.
It's an absolute pleasure, thank you so much.
You're going to get more off me,
I'm going to go around the house and give you everything!
Don't joke, Toyah, she'll clear you out.
I'm so impressed, and I really like what's happened.
It's given everything a new lease of life and it's given it more time,
which means a young couple will own something and it will be around
for another 100 years. That's lovely.
Sarah sold the chairs for £485.
Taking off Norman's labour and materials left a profit of £125.
Sarah's mirrors all sold for a total of £185.
And, after her material costs were taken off,
it left her a profit of £157.54.
Altogether, Toyah has £282.54 to donate to the Shakespeare Hospice,
which cared for her aunt.
Well done, Sarah. And back in Wolverhampton,
has Jay managed to turn Sinitta's old dish rack
into an all-singing all-dancing music light box?
I hope so, because I'm in the mood for a boogie.
Now, here's the big test, the box is all together,
the lights and speaker, are they going to work? Wish me luck.
Jay's worked hard to make the old dish rack functional again,
but has he succeeded? It's time to face the music.
Yes, he has!
Jay's disco box looks the business, with his remote-controlled
LED lights flashing out from the sleek black base.
The music box is portable, so the party can follow you wherever you go.
Just not on the bus, please.
It certainly looks the part, but how does it sound?
Now, for the speaker, here we go.
Sounding good, Jay.
Come on, show us some moves.
Oh, he's mesmerised by the lights.
Although, they are quite hypnotic...
Snap out of it!
Time to get selling.
Jay's uploading pics onto social media to try and drum up
some interest, and drum it up he did.
Jay's light box was bought by Microtek Repair Solutions in Wolverhampton.
And manager Aaron thinks it's quite... What's the word?
I think it's quite snazzy - the flashing lights, you can put it on
in a dark room and listen to some music and chill out, wind down.
Whatever floats your boat, Aaron.
Jay managed to sell it, but how much profit has been made?
In Manchester, Jay is all boogied out from finishing the music box,
and what do you do after you've been dancing?
Get a kebab.
Mark is putting the finishing touches to Sinitta's steampunk kebab light.
Jay is hoping it looks proper tasty.
Interesting project, difficult project.
Lots of techniques that I'd not used before, really.
But I'm hoping that he likes what I've come up with.
I'm here in Manchester to see Mark, and hopefully he's risen
to that challenge on what to do with that fan.
I know I couldn't do it, so let's go take a look.
Transforming that rickety old plastic fan was never going to be a breeze.
But now, fanfare, please...
It's a big and bright magic lamp.
Mark has built up his kebab base
with everything from plant pots to an old ashtray, which has
come together to create a truly unique piece of steampunk lighting.
Topped off with Edison light bulbs, it's been PAT tested
and complies with all UK electrical safety standards.
It's a bold design, all right,
but will Jay be blown away with the transformation?
Oh, come on! Mark, look at that.
-How are we doing?
-I'm all right, fella, how are you?
-I'm very good now!
Look at this, man, you've done it again, haven't you?
These are all found objects that I've found.
-I tried to use as much of the fan as possible.
-It's cool, mate, it's cool.
There is the blades of the fan.
-There's some of the mechanism back there.
-And this is the base of the fan.
-You've definitely done me proud,
it is just amazing.
-I'm just amazed by it all.
I think it's safe to say Jay is a big fan of the fan.
But what about the budget?
-We said 200 on the phone.
-Yes, we did, sir.
-We did, but I forgot about the price of the bulbs.
-The price of the bulbs, oh, they're free, aren't they?
They are about six quid a bulb.
-All right, so we're talking about £224?
-Thank you, sir.
I think it's a really nice piece and I hope somebody likes it
and I hope they buy it.
Mark has definitely smashed it.
He's given me a steampunk lamp.
It just looks beautiful.
Now all I've got to do is sell it.
I know it's not going to be hard.
It was full steam ahead to get the light sold.
Jay knew there was a fan of steampunk out there
just itching for a big, brassy light, and...
Great, I found a buyer.
..he found them.
The Steam Barber Shop in Truro, Cornwall, loved the light,
and owner Dan couldn't be happier.
It suits the theme of our shop, it's industrial, it's steampunk.
The bulbs look awesome and it makes the shop come to life.
With the profits from the light box and the lamp added up,
Jay is back in south-west London to show Sinitta the transformations,
and hand over some cash.
I think I've given him quite challenging things to work with,
and it's either going to be amazing or a disaster, right?
No pressure there, Jay.
Yay! How are you?
-How are you doing?
-Really good, thanks.
-I can't wait.
So do you remember the two items I got from you, then?
Yes, you had my funny fan, rickety old fan.
-That's right, the fan.
-And then my plate tray.
-So would you like to see what I've done with them then?
-I can't wait. Yes.
Here is what used to be your plate rack.
Now it's turned into a music light box.
-Inside you've got lights and also inside there you've got
a Bluetooth speaker which allows you to play music.
-That's going to look amazing in my room!
-You can't have this one!
This one's been sold.
I am glad to tell you we've made £70.02 profit on this one.
-And then your fan, do you want to see your fan?
-Yes, well, not really!
-Well, what used to be your fan.
Yes. Wow, but what is that now?
-It is a light.
-It's a lamp.
So there are the propellers at the back as well.
I love it, will you make me another if I buy another horrible fan?
I'll speak to Mark and see if he can make you another one!
It's so clever, it's stunning.
In total you'll be glad to know that we've made £190 for the two items.
-So here is your 190.
-Thank you so much.
-And I'm not going to forget your 2p.
-And the 2p.
-What are you going to do with it?
I'm going to give it to the Diana Awards.
The Diana Awards basically equip and reward kids who are doing
great things in their communities,
so this is going to be very much appreciated.
That's a good cause as well.
You take care now.
Good job, Jay.
I mean, who would have thought that two things that you were
basically going to just throw away could raise so much?
Jay sold his light box for £115
and, taking off materials, it left a profit of £70.02.
Mark's fan light sold for an impressive £345.
Minus his labour and material costs, it left a profit of £120.
Together, Sinitta has a profit of £190.02
to donate to her chosen children's charity.
Sarah and Jay saved four bits of celebrity junk.
And with the help of some of the country's best
and brightest designers, they've all been given a new start
and a chance to be loved again.
We loved saving Toyah and Sinitta's trash.
And turning it into saleable items and making money for nothing.
For two very worthy causes.
Sarah Moore and Jay Blades search the homes of 1980s pop stars Sinitta and Toyah Willcox in the hope of uncovering four pieces of junk to transform and sell on for a profit. Woodworking wizard Norman Wilkinson is tasked with taking on Toyah's tired chairs, while robot-mad Mark Haig gives Sinitta's broken fan a steampunk-inspired makeover. But will Sarah and Jay find new homes for their revamped items?
