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 them 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 an amazing lady!
First up is intrepid super salvager Sarah.
She's in Essex at the very lovely home of...Louie Spence.
Famed for his high kicks, backflips and boundless enthusiasm,
Louie first found success as a dancer in London's West End,
before he took centre stage in a docu-soap about his dance studio.
Sarah will have a right good rummage around his home to uncover two
unwanted items she can give a new lease of life to.
I love what she does and I'm quite crafty myself.
I don't think to her expertise,
but, you know, I do like making a cushion,
I like a bit of spray-paint.
I'm not afraid of colour.
I'll be interested to see what she thinks of some of my things
and maybe if she's got some ideas of other things I can do.
Hello, Sarah, darling.
-How are you?
-Really well. How are you?
Welcome to my home.
Louie's home is an extended 17th-century cottage,
full of original period features.
He and his husband have lived here for five years.
Louie's pirouettes are pinpoint and he also loves getting crafty with a
needle and thread,
so he's looking forward to showing off his handiwork to Sarah.
So, this is the sitting room.
Wow! What a great airy room for a property of this age.
Louie's not after your opinion on the airiness of his room.
Check out the cushions.
I made that cushion.
-I'm really impressed.
-And I made this one, as well, Miss Japan.
-I made that one.
So, do you enjoy doing that? Do you enjoy making everything?
You know what? I really do now.
I mean, it's something I've done
because of owning the house and always wanting a change.
I'm not doing it to sell, I'm doing it for myself.
So, yeah, the cushion may not be exactly square,
it made dip a bit in the middle, but it's only going to be there a week,
cos I'm going to change it to another colour.
It's inspiring stuff. You just have to have a go, don't you?
I'm with you there.
Louie and Sarah are kindred spirits
when it comes to DIY home furnishings.
But there's precious little junk hidden about
Louie's immaculate home.
Nothing for me in there.
Everyone has somewhere to chuck the bits, the bobs,
the odds and sods that no longer serve a purpose.
But where are Louie's?
Jack, and may I add, pot!
I'll have a closer look at this.
That looks cool. It's looking really neglected.
It's very interesting. Right, let's go and see where Louie is.
So, I did have a quick look in the shed.
-Something really interesting.
-It's looking a bit neglected.
Darling, I'll take that. A little bit heavy for you.
Oh! Those gym workouts, thank goodness.
Right, when I first moved in, I was going for the country feel.
-Before I found colour in the house,
this is how I thought it should have looked.
I think like everyone else, I had that feeling of,
if it's a country house, it should have those old kind of things.
I went off it very quickly and it's been here ever since.
It's good to go. Get rid of it.
-I would love to take that away.
-Loads of potential there,
-and maybe something I could give a little Louie love to.
Sarah's got her first item, this Victorian style sofa.
It's a very sweet little two-seater sofa.
It's reproduction. It's got great lines, lots of potential.
Not quite sure which direction to go down, but as it's reproduction,
I can go anywhere I like.
Sarah's got free rein to unleash her creativity upon it.
In Cambridgeshire, Jay is on his way
to the home of one-time ballet dancer
turned Royal Marine turned actor Cassidy Little.
When he's not playing a tiny guitar,
Cassidy also works to raise awareness
of soldiers' experiences after injury.
In 2011, Cassidy lost his right leg while serving in Afghanistan.
Since then, he's appeared on Strictly Come Dancing
and carried the Olympic torch for the 2012 London Olympics.
Jay will scour Cassidy's home to seek out two items
of tip-bound trash
that he can transform and sell on for a profit.
I'm really excited about Jay coming.
Actually, I'm a little bit nervous, too,
cos I have no idea what he's going to want to take out of here and,
to be honest with you, I have no idea whether I'm going to be even
able to let it go. I kind of hold
on to things because I'm worried that they're going to be
emotionally sensitive to me in the future,
so even the kind of rotting things around the corner
I will still kind of look at and go, "Yeah, but... Yeah, but..."
-How are you doing, man?
-You all right?
-Yeah, I'm good,
-buddy. Come on in.
-Come on in.
Cassidy shares his home with his wife, Laura.
They married in 2012,
and three years later, welcomed their first child.
Like a lot of couples with a young family,
their home has been filled with baby stuff.
Straight away I see it.
-That's got to be you, isn't it?
That was a couple of years ago.
I was one of the poster boys for the Royal British Legion.
So, how did you lose your leg, then,
if you don't mind me asking? I'm all right to ask, am I?
Yeah, of course. Have you ever seen the film Jurassic Park?
-Yeah, dinosaurs, man.
You're having me on! That's not dinosaurs!
I lost my leg in 2011 on Herrick 14, which was a tour of Afghanistan.
Wow. So your leg got blown up?
Literally. Yeah, just flying through the air.
And then obviously the guys helped you, picked you up...
-..and put you into the ambulance?
I was a medic at the time, and I had trained a lot of guys in how to do
immediate life-saving drills and, luckily,
some of the guys that I'd taught first aid to saved my life.
Cassidy's tale is one of incredible bravery.
He's an inspirational man.
But today, Jay is here to rummage through his rubbish.
-This is where you've got it all hiding, eh?
I'm a little embarrassed about this, but this is our tip, so...
This is exactly what I'm looking for. This is my kind of space.
-Well, that's good, cos...
-There's no need to be embarrassed.
-This is perfect!
-Anyway, if you can find something in there, it's all yours.
That sounds like a good deal.
This is a trash treasure trove.
-That's a wooden high chair back there, isn't it?
-It is, yes.
Yes, the blue one.
-Yeah, the blue one.
-I can't let you have the blue one.
Well, that deal didn't last long!
I know it looks like rotting wood, and it is rotting wood,
but the truth is that every one of my nieces and nephews
and my daughter have sat in that chair.
And although none of the family want it, my wife doesn't want it and,
truth be told, I don't even want it,
I cannot let it go cos I'm just...
I feel like I'm ditching that connection, so I can't do it.
He did warn us he's a sentimentalist.
Obviously timber. Nice.
It's part of a sandbox and it was bought for my daughter by a friend
of the family. The truth is that my sister was horribly ill from eating
something in a sandbox when she was around my daughter's age,
so I will never, ever own a sandbox,
so it's literally going to sit here or I will burn it.
No, don't burn that. This is a lovely bit of pine.
I'm sure I can do something with this.
-You're a strange man.
-I am a strange man.
-Strange, strange man.
Jay has got his first item and he's as happy as a kid in a sandbox,
with his kid's sandbox.
You can never go wrong with a bit of wood, but
this one's going to be a bit of a challenge,
so I'm going to have to get my creative hat on -
not this one, me other one -
cos I don't know what I'm going to do with it just yet.
Let me have a think.
It could be a...kid's sandbox?
In Essex, Sarah's having a rummage
in the immaculate home of Louie Spence.
I don't know if you're the first
lady I've taken up to my bedroom, Sarah!
What a privilege!
She uncovered this two-seater sofa in the garden shed.
And, for the second item,
Louie thinks he's got just the thing for her in his bedroom.
What's in here, then? Come on.
OK. I've got a rug or two.
-Yeah, I mean, it's the same with my cushions.
-You've got a rug habit?
-I've got, like... Hold on.
So, got, like, all different types.
Happy days! This is just the sort of thing Sarah loves.
-So, are you using all of these? Are they all going back in...?
I mean, I don't...
I think some things, once they get put away,
and they get forgotten about, do you know what I mean?
-Are you going to circulate those?
I really don't think so.
I think I might actually be over them.
Well, they're definitely food for thought for me.
Maybe come back to that later, if that's all right.
-Let me help you fold them up.
-Shall I stay in or shall I come
-out of the closet?
Right, OK, fine. I just needed a bit of a push there.
Oh, don't worry about that, darling. We'll get someone else to do that.
Sarah's saying a polite "thanks, but no thanks"
to the right-up-her-street rugs.
That can only mean she's got her upcycler's eye on another item.
-What are you doing with that, then?
-Well, the thing is,
it's not normally here.
It's been put here for a reason, Sarah.
When I moved into the house, I bought it thinking
it would be a wonderful garden piece, not thinking about the dogs,
not thinking about my nieces and nephews when they come round.
If this was to fall...
-It's really heavy.
-On one of the children or the dogs...
It really is quite dangerous,
and to tell you the truth, I don't mind if you wheel this out.
That has got "make me into something amazing" written all over it.
-So, shall I just wheel it away now?
-You wheel it away. Like I say,
it's used to being pushed around everywhere.
It doesn't take offence.
Once the momentum goes, darling...
Once you get going with the momentum, look...
And you can get it down... Go on.
-There you go.
-Well, I'll put it in the van.
Off you go. Put it in your bag, darling.
Put it in your handbag. No-one's going to know.
Well, this WHEELIE is my lucky day.
I love this wheel.
Heaps of age to it.
Lovely finish on it, great colour, and there's money in here.
I can just smell it.
Ugh! I'm not sure that's money!
Perhaps it's the dogs Louie mentioned earlier.
Louie, I have had the best day today.
I've really enjoyed it, and thank you for letting me see your home.
That's an absolute pleasure. I just hope you can work your magic
with some of the junk I've given you, so good luck and safe journey.
-I love the junk. I'll be back in touch.
I've had a really, really nice time today,
and I'm so pleased that Sarah's found things that she believes
she can do something with, which I'm sure she can.
So it's been a successful day and it was just nice to meet Sarah,
actually, and have a chat about soft furnishing.
Sarah's got two items that she thinks
she can give a new lease of life and earn a bob or two on -
the Victorian-style two-seater and the rusty old cart wheel.
Jay's search continues at the home of Cassidy Little,
Strictly Come Dancing People's Champion.
Do a little cha-cha-cha. There we go.
Be careful, man. I'm pretty good at the old dancing!
Cassidy was happy to see the back of this kid's sandpit.
Now, Jay is having a root around in his garden shed.
Oh, wow, cool!
That's a cooler that we still use.
I've got a drill over there that I still use.
There's a vacuum cleaner over there that I'd like to get rid of,
but what are you going to do with a vacuum cleaner?
You never know! I could do something with a vacuum cleaner.
That's right, he could!
He could tidy up his workshop - it's a mess in there!
Hold it. What about this, Cassidy? What about that?
That's... It's a wheelbarrow.
Yeah, but are you using it?
No, I'm not using it. It's flat. It's useless.
So, how long have you had this for?
It came with the house.
I'm looking for an excuse to buy a new one, so if you were to take
-this off my hands, I'd appreciate it.
-You could get a new one.
-Oh, hell yeah.
-I think I might have to take this, actually.
-Yeah, do it, man.
-I do like that.
If it's something you think you can use, then it's yours.
Yeah. So, are you sure I can have this?
Yeah, yeah. It's yours if you want it.
-Yeah, I want it.
-Well, then, dude, take it.
-Get it out of my yard.
-Well, that's in the bag. I'll have that one.
Jay's got his second item.
What on earth is he going to do with this?
Well, you might be wondering what I'm going to do with a rusty old
-Jay, you've read my mind!
You're just going to have to wait and see, aren't you?
That cheeky wink is fooling nobody.
He's got no idea, but I'm sure he'll get one.
-So, Cassidy, thank you for having me today.
-Dude, it's my pleasure.
I'm really looking forward to seeing what you do
-with the stuff you've grabbed.
-OK, well, once I've finished,
I'll bring it back and show you.
-That's a great idea.
-Go on, get out of my house.
I wasn't really sure what to expect when Jay rocked up because it feels
like I'm kind of parting with something that...
You know, I would be parting with things that I would miss or I would
regret parting with. But he's chosen things that I'm not connected to,
even remotely, and I'm really happy that he's taking away from my house.
Jay's picked two items that he thinks have the potential
to turn a profit -
the sandpit and the wheelbarrow.
With four items found, let the upcycling commence.
At Sarah's home in Sussex, she's in the workshop,
ready to begin work on the Victorian-style two-seater sofa.
I think it would be comfier sitting on a bag of spuds.
Well, at the moment, this bench looks a bit mean,
it looks austere and it looks really uncomfortable.
And we just don't give house room to things like this any more unless
they're antiques. So this, I think, needs to be made plump,
generous and slapped on with a big dose of colour and pattern.
So, we've got plumpification,
followed by some slap-ifying of colour and pattern.
This will be a challenge of gargantuan proportions.
Reupholstering this seat will test Sarah's skills to the max.
The sofa's webbing is slack.
Webbing should be uniformly taut
to provide a little bounce for comfort.
No-one likes a saggy seat.
Well, the webbing is still fit for purpose but it really needs
tightening up, so I'm just going to use my electric staple gun
to make it really taut. Then it should be good as new.
Sarah will be padding out and upholstering the backrest,
but before doing that, she wants to modify the seat's outline.
I'm going to cut these bits off the top.
A bit of cosmetic surgery to make the shape a little sleeker.
I hope it doesn't affect the joints, though.
I hate power tools.
Come on, now, Sarah, what's to worry about?
You accidentally saw through a joint and the whole thing falls apart?
It could be worse!
No going back now, then.
Do you know, I found this genuinely frightening.
The key to a smooth cut with a jigsaw
is maintaining a firm grip with a steady pace.
With the knobbly bits cut off,
are we on the road to a sleek and stylish new look?
I hope my design works,
cos I've completely ruined it now if it doesn't.
Oh, Sarah, don't be so down.
Perk yourself up!
This looks like fun, doesn't it?
That's more like it.
Sarah's preparing to add the foam cushioning to the backrest.
This project is a nightmare, do you know that?
It's a nightmare. Oh, dear.
Oh, I see - that's smiling on the outside,
crying tears of upcycling despair on the inside.
Sarah has spent £89 on materials.
For her, that's a hefty outlay.
Here's hoping it's money well spent.
It's a lovely day for a paddle in the Sussex village of Hellingly,
home to Norman Wilkinson, master craftsman for all things wood.
Just the fella, then, for the rusty old metal wheel.
Norman has 25 years of experience handcrafting one-of-a-kind furniture
pieces that will last a lifetime.
Never been to college, never took woodwork at school.
So over the years, I've just taught myself.
I started making a few pieces and it just took off,
so it's the best thing I ever did.
So, yeah, happy-pappy person.
You're not looking so happy now, Norman.
Sarah's on the phone to discuss ideas.
I thought we could make it into a table using the wheel as the top and
maybe some reclaimed wood for the surface?
Norman likes the table idea, but has a suggestion of his own for the
surface - glass.
We would have to have a glass one made, a glass one cut with a hole,
and toughened, but it will look super-cool cos then you could
look down at the wheel and the column.
Sounds great, but getting glass made to order is expensive.
Yeah, well... No. Yes and no.
The whole project, all singing and dancing,
I reckon it's going to cost you about 575.
Well, all right, then. For that price, it's a deal.
Be good and I'll speak to you soon, yeah?
So, they've agreed on a cartwheel table with a glass top.
This is either going to go swimmingly well or we're going to
have serious problems with it.
Fingers crossed it works out all right.
Hm. He didn't mention any of that on the phone to Sarah.
Norman is using reclaimed ceiling joists
to make the base of the table.
He's ensured that all the old nails are removed,
as they damage the spinning teeth of his table saw.
And, wise man that he is,
Norman is wearing safety glasses to protect his eyes.
To support the iron wheel and glass table top,
Norman needs wider timber for his base.
So he's gluing the cut joists together to form a larger piece.
When we glue it up, if there's bumps and ridges in it,
it doesn't matter because we will be sanding it,
and sanding it nice and flat.
When the glue has dried, the bond will be as strong as fresh timber,
and Norman can then cut this large piece down to size.
It's better to have too much than not enough.
I think the same about biscuits.
Excellent. That's that one done.
It's time to get to work on this wagon wheel.
Norman wants to keep the well-worn and aged look of the iron
and the faded blues and reds of its paintwork,
so he's using a fine sandpaper to remove any loose flakes of rust.
That is looking beautiful.
I'm just going to put some wax on it and see...
..see how it looks, and then see...
If we're happy with it, then we can do the rest of the wheel.
Norman's using a clear wood wax to bring up the lustre
and add a little shine.
Look at that lovely red and the ageing,
where the wheel has obviously run on the rim.
It's all looking good at the moment, but there's a long road ahead for
Norman's still got a hefty chunk of change to spend on toughened glass
within his budget of £575.
It's a radical revamping extravaganza for Sarah and Norman.
Now we are in Jay's stomping ground, Wolverhampton.
The man himself is taking the kid's sandpit to his workshop.
I've got this sandpit - I know, minus the sand -
from Cassidy and basically what I'm intending to make with this is a
mirror - mirror with storage and place where you can hang
all your bits and bobs.
Not just one mirror with storage for bits and bobs -
Jay's measured up the sandpit and he thinks there's enough timber
to make three.
He's already had three pieces of mirrored glass cut to his exact
-I'll just have to have a look,
cos I don't think I've got enough timber, actually.
Oops. Perhaps those measurements weren't so exact after all.
So, Jay, what's the best thing to do?
The best thing to do is take it all apart
and then see if I've got enough.
Jay wants to give his mirror a stylish new colour scheme
with a distressed finish.
Simply painting over the top is a no-no.
The key to a long-lasting professional paint job is prep.
Jay is sanding the timber to remove the current colours,
which will open up the grain,
allowing his colour choice to seep deep into the timber,
giving a vivid finish.
Even though the wood's been outside, it's not in bad condition, actually,
so I'm quite happy about that.
We're happy about that,
but are we happy we've got enough wood for the three frames, Jay?
Jay? Oh, he's doing his sums.
I can see the cogs are turning slowly - very slowly.
Don't worry. I'm just working it out.
I've not lost the plot.
I'm not sure you had it to begin with, to be honest, Jay.
I don't think I've got enough.
When unsure, it's best to remember the age-old adage of the master
craftsman - measure twice, cut once.
Or we could just carry on regardless and hope for the best.
Jay's cutting the timber down to what he thinks is the right size for
three frames, and if it's not, then, well, I don't know.
I've got more cut now, and I was correct.
I don't have enough for three.
I only have enough for two,
but two is better than one, and one is better than none.
Yeah, great. Wait, how many are we making?
He's bamboozled me with his positive attitude.
Ugh. Jay has spent £19 on his mirrors.
I can't wait to see them, no matter how many we're getting.
Margate, the day-trippers' kiss-me-quick Mecca,
is now the retro hotspot for all things vintage.
It's home to upcycler extraordinaire Rupert Blanchard,
one of the most imaginative artisans working in Britain today,
which is why Jay has chosen him to work on his worn-out wheelbarrow.
Rupert's got skills to pay the bills.
He's a master of his craft with a flair for the unexpected,
but his designs are no flights of fancy.
They are functional and in high demand.
I try to develop my own style so my personality comes through
in my work.
I'm most proud of a piece when I've got a piece of furniture back in
someone's home that they wouldn't even give space in their shed for.
I just... Yeah, I want to make the unloved loved again.
I'm super excited to hear Rupert's ideas for this.
I just... I just don't know what to do with it.
Uh, Rupert, that's not helpful.
Don't worry, Rupert, my old mate.
Jay'll have an idea, I'm sure. PHONE RINGS
-All right, Rupert, how are you doing, mate?
-Are you all right?
-No, Jay, he's not. He's flummoxed.
The idea that I had was basically put some water in it
-and turn it into a pond.
-A garden pond?
But I know you've got a better idea.
-The light bulb moment hasn't just happened, so...
You're the only brain that I believe in Britain that will
be able to handle such an item.
Oh, blimey, Jay...
I'll try to make you a couple of really great sculptural items,
but something with function, and I reckon if you just trust me,
you leave me with £200, I will return you things to be proud of.
Jay's agreed to Rupert's suggestion,
but the pressure's on to have that light bulb moment he mentioned.
I've really got to...got to think hard about this one,
pull something out of the bag and turn this from essentially
scrap metal to something that Jay...
Jay can sell, Jay can find a new home for.
This is the oddest one yet.
Rupert may not have an upcycling idea,
but he does have a plan of attack...
..which is to attack the wheelbarrow with his angle grinder.
I find when I'm not quite sure what to do with an item that I've been
given, I like to learn how it was put together,
and the only way you do that is by taking it apart.
Hopefully, by then, I would have had that light bulb moment and hopefully
that's going to happen this time.
Why did I agree to do this?
Oh, Rupert, fret not a single strand of your lustrous hair.
I've had a bit of an idea now.
-It's a bit unusual.
It's a bit abstract.
I'm... I'm going to...
I'm going to see you in a bit. I'm going to go.
Here you are.
Hold on a second, where are you off to, my friend?
Now, that I do not like the look of.
Rupert, I've changed my mind -
I would start fretting your whole head of hair when Jay sees this.
Rupert, you'd better have a plan, and it'd better be a good one.
Rupert agreed to a fee of £200 for two items that Jay would be proud to
I think he'd be embarrassed to take that to the skip at the moment.
Last we saw of Sarah,
her skills were being tested to the max with her redesign
of the Victorian-style sofa.
Well, I'm nearly done, and it has been a labour of love.
I'm really pleased with it.
I think it would be fair to say there'd be nobody fighting
over this in a battle for the comfy seat.
But Sarah's plumpified it to perfection.
The austere-looking old sofa now has a super-soft seat
with a vintage floral fabric, giving it an inviting, homely look.
Sarah painted the remaining woodwork in a soft shade of green to
complement the botanical design of the material.
This transformation tested Sarah's skills in woodwork and upholstery to
the limit. But I think she's done an amazing job.
In the beginning, it wasn't loved.
It just didn't have commercial appeal.
Now I'm hoping it's soft, it's generous and it's beautiful.
So I'm going to take some pictures of it, share it around,
and hopefully find it a lovely new home.
In Sussex, Sarah is on her way to see Norman's cartwheel table,
and he's cock-a-hoop with it.
Beautiful. With what we were given, I think it's turned out really well,
and, yeah, I am really pleased with it, and I hope Sarah will be
as well, but, yeah, it's one of my favourites so, yeah, happy days.
Will Sarah be turning cartwheels when she sees what's happened to her
Yee-haw! HE COUGHS
Sorry about that. I was overcome
with the magnificent country stylings of this table.
Norman had toughened safety glass cut to size for the table top.
He added a rubber trim to allow it to sit perfectly on the wheel.
The glass and wheel are a hefty weight,
but Norman has constructed a secure and steady base,
which he has given a distressed finish to match the wear and tear
of the cartwheel,
and he's bolted it all together with this chunky piece of
ironmongery. Norman's tickled pink with his handiwork,
but what about the boss?
Oh, look at that!
Hey, how are you?
-Hiya. Yeah, great. And you?
-You've nailed it.
-Do you like it?
-It's really good.
I really didn't know what I was going to be picking up,
cos it was very heavy to use.
Once we... Obviously, once we got the wheel,
we had to start thinking about the weight, the weight of the glass,
and we had to get it supported so it wouldn't topple or anything,
so we've tested it all.
But we've got a whopping great big nut and bolt that goes all the way
through, so it clamps it and holds it all together.
And then we came up with the base.
But we came up with the base with the angles going up
cos it obviously supports it, but...
And we did it in a nice cream colour cos I think it
complements the blue and the red, so it all, sort of, ties in.
So a fair bit of work in that, then, wasn't there?
-Yeah, but once we...
-Are you pleased with it?
I think it's fantastic, to be honest.
I just... It's... It's one of my favourites.
I think this bit here that you've done to expose that
and make that stick out, you've honoured that wheel,
-because you can see it all.
And there are a lot of things that could have been done with it,
like cutting it up, but that is looking good.
Norman's done a bang-on job, bang-on his budget of £575.
Happy days all the way round.
Great project to do, loved doing it, fantastic.
Norman thinks it's fantastic, and in complete agreement is Maria,
owner of a furniture shop in Kent.
There is something really lovely about aged metal
that has a really nice contemporary feel to it.
Now Sarah's in Essex to show Louie what became of his junk,
and she's got a pocket full of profit for his chosen charity.
I'm really looking forward to seeing what Sarah's done with the junk that
I gave her, really. It was things that I didn't use,
so I want to see what her creative mind has come up with, along with
her fabulous friends.
-Hiya. How are you doing?
-Good. How are you?
I said I'd be back. I've got things to show you.
Oh, fantastic. I'm really excited.
Well, it's looking fantastic in here.
It looks like you've changed stuff again.
Oh, it's just a bit more colour and a few new cushions.
You know me, I can't help myself.
But I'm very excited to see what you've been doing, so...
The first thing is that cartwheel.
I actually took it to somebody called Norman
who normally specialises in woodwork,
but he will turn his hand to anything,
and this is what he's done with it.
-Here it is.
I love it. Oh, that is stunning.
He's put a glass top on it.
It is absolutely beautiful.
-So, do you like it?
Well, it's actually sold to a shop.
-Oh, right, OK.
-And after all our costs,
I managed to make £120 on it.
-Well, that's good.
-Yeah, so there's...
There's some profit from that.
And then that left the little two-seater bench...
-So I worked on that...
-And did some upholstery on it, so your bench now looks like...
Oh, it's beautiful.
So I padded all of the seats, so it's comfortable...
That would look beautiful back in my hallway.
Can I have it back, please, as it is now?
Unfortunately, you can't. I put it on to social media,
put some pictures up, and I've sold it at a profit, so,
with the money from the cartwheel and a £486 profit from the bench...
-I've got 6...
£486 profit from the bench?
I've got £606 here for your charity.
That's incredible! Oh, thank you very much.
The charity's going to really love this.
-Right, you're going to have to leave now,
cos people are going to be worried about me having women in my house.
-Right, thanks for coming, Sarah.
I've got to get rid of Sarah out of my house now,
cos people are starting to talk in the village.
I've got women visiting and giving me money - not a good look.
The amount of money, I mean, you know, that's fantastic.
It's going to Crohn's and Colitis,
so the charity which this will be going to,
I'm sure they will be very pleased with it, to help with their research
or whatever else they want to do with it,
so thank you very much for whoever bought it,
and thanks very much for Sarah.
Sarah sold the table for £695.
Minus Norman's costs, Sarah was left
with a profit of £120.
Sarah sold the sofa
to a private buyer for 575 quid.
Take away her spend, that gave her
a profit of £486.
Added together, Louie has £606 to
donate to Crohn's and Colitis UK.
In his Wolverhampton workshop,
Jay is doing what Jay loves best -
looking at himself in the mirror.
Man, that's good. I do like that.
Just to be clear, he's talking about the mirror. Possibly.
This sandpit was heading for the scrapheap.
Now Jay has given it a new lease of life as a pair of stylish-looking
mirrors. He chose a neutral white finish with a distressed look to add
And no Jay makeover is complete without a little pop of colour,
so he's gone for a pink wall mount.
They're looking good.
Now, I do love these.
The simple ideas are normally the ones that work the best
and they look the most striking, and on this,
you couldn't have gone more basic than this.
You've just got a frame with some string and they look beautiful.
And what better place for them than a beauty salon?
NAF in Glasgow.
Tammy is a big fan of Jay's work.
I absolutely love this.
We are always looking for something unique and different
to put on the walls in the salon,
and it just fits in so perfectly with everything we've got.
Oh, look, I've got the same sign up in my living room.
In Margate, it's the moment of truth for Rupert.
What on earth has he made for Jay?
I'm really happy with the outcome of this one.
I'm not sure Jay will be, cos I know he likes really bright stuff,
and they're not bright
and they're fairly unusual, so, yeah, I don't know.
This wheelbarrow had Rupert flummoxed.
He was in need of what he called a light bulb moment.
Well, he got one.
In fact, he got two.
Rupert has created lamps from that rusty hunk of junk.
Rather than try to hide the rust, he's brought it to the fore,
glazing the scrunched and crunched metal to bring out the dark browns
It's got what I'm calling scrap yard chic to it.
The bases and light rods were made from salvaged steel and brass,
and welded to the chunks of wheelbarrow.
Rupert was aiming to create a sculptural piece of work.
It's a little bit arty, a little bit industrial,
but what will Jay make of it?
Rupert. Oh, wow, look at that.
-That's good, man. I like that.
-Thank you, Jay. You're welcome.
That's my wheelbarrow, isn't it?
Yeah, it is.
It was. I mean, as you can see, in the end,
I made a pair of lamps with it.
-I wasn't sure what I was going to do for you, but there you go.
So, how did you do... You're not that strong, are you?
You didn't crush it with your bare hands?
I did have some help from an incredibly powerful
and, yeah, it was a fun process.
Hold on, oh, whoa, whoa, whoa, slow down a minute.
You took this, you know, where they crush the cars?
-Is that what you're saying?
-You took it to one of those?
-Yeah. Yeah, it was a lot of fun.
Oh, what? I like them.
I like them both a lot.
And now I like them even more, because I know you've crushed them.
No, that's... That's brilliant.
-So the next thing I want to ask is budget.
I've gone slightly over budget.
I know you left me with 200.
Yeah, you've gone a fiver over budget?
-I've gone a little more over budget.
-I've gone to 260.
-Which, in the end, things just added up and, yeah.
So it's 260 for both of them?
-For the pair.
-I can manage that.
-No, that's cool.
-260, so that's 130 each.
Cool. I'm happy with that.
And I get the lampshades? They're mine, yeah?
Yeah, that's part of the deal.
-You've got a deal, then, sir.
-Excellent, thank you.
-Thank you. Cheers for that, Rupert.
Oh, that was... That was pretty good.
I think Jay was happy with that. So if Jay's happy, I'm happy.
And another happy chappie is Tom.
Jay sold him both lamps.
He's giving them pride of place in his bar -
the Hermitage Road in Hertfordshire.
They are very cool, very original, very different.
That's what we're about here, so, yeah, great pieces.
Now Jay's on his way to Cassidy's home to tell him what became of his
hunks of junk.
Jay and I really hit it off, so I look forward to having a little bit more banter with him,
and actually I kind of look forward to seeing what he's managed to do
with the junk that he's taken from my back yard.
-How are we doing? Are you all right?
-I'm great, man.
-Come in. Welcome back.
-Come on in.
OK, I'm not going to keep you in suspense any longer.
-I took on the sandpit, and this is what I turned it into.
-It's a sandpit...
-Oh, wow, that's actually really nice!
-I don't mean to sound so surprised.
-You do sound a bit surprised.
Well, wait, you did take a sandpit out of my back yard, right?
It's... That would actually go really well in my bathroom.
That's exactly what I made it for.
Yeah, it's gorgeous. And it's got a shabby-chic look to it.
-Yeah, it's gorgeous.
Well, you'll be pleased to know that I've sold this as well.
-Oh, you've already sold it?
-This one's already sold,
and I make £36 profit on this.
-After all my costs and everything,
paying for the mirrors and what have you.
-Well, that's brilliant.
-And then for your wheelbarrow,
I took it to a guy called Rupert,
and what he does with stuff is quite amazing,
and he turned your wheelbarrow into two lamps.
That doesn't... That doesn't count.
That doesn't count. It looks like he's just put it in a car crusher
and it just went... I mean, it's gorgeous. It's creative.
Very gorgeous. I just... To be honest, I'm surprised.
-I'm surprised because if you were to tell me that he was going to
make a lamp out of a wheelbarrow, I would say, "OK, he'd take that bit
"and that bit and cut that, put a bulb on that, a shade on there."
I wouldn't expect him to bend the entire wheelbarrow into
-the shape of a square.
-I entirely agree with you.
And we've sold this as well.
-I've got an £85 profit we've made on that.
-So, in total, I have for you £121...
-..for your charity.
-That is awesome.
So, who is it going to? What charity is that going to?
I've chosen the Royal British Legion.
I chose them because they...
Since coming out of my coma, and since really kind of
starting to get a grip...to grips with what my body is capable and not
capable of doing, they've kind of been with me
the whole step of the way.
You know, that right there, they'll be grateful for that,
so this is good. You've done a good thing.
-No, you've done a good thing, sir.
-They'll be happy about this.
-No, thank you.
-Any time. Come on over.
-Come and take my junk any day.
-I will do!
The stuff Jay did with the old sandbox, that stuff's gorgeous.
I mean, that's... That's the kind of stuff you could...
You could go into any modern furniture shop to buy that,
and so I'm a little impressed by that.
And a little bit, erm...
A little envious, cos if I'd known I could have done that myself,
then we'd have two lovely shelves with mirrors hanging
in our living room or bathroom right now.
Jay sold the mirrors for £55.
Minus his costs, he was left with a profit of 36 quid.
The lamps sold for £345.
Take away Rupert's spend,
that gave Jay a profit of £85.
Added together, Cassidy has £121 to
donate to the Royal British Legion.
Sarah and Jay have rejuvenated four pieces of celebrity junk.
Once-cherished items that were ready to be chucked have been given a new
lease of life.
Hidden gems have been discovered and transformed,
to take pride of place in new homes.
Well, with the help of the brilliant Norman and Rupert...
We've crushed a profit
out of four items that were destined for the tip.
And handed over some Money For Nothing
to two great charities.
Sarah and Jay visit the homes of dancer Louie Spence and former Royal Marine and People's Strictly Come Dancing winner Cassidy Little. Sarah saves a cart wheel and a bench, while Jay rescues an old wheelbarrow and a sandpit. To transform these old items, Sarah and Jay enlist the help of carpenter extraordinaire Norman Wilkinson and designer-maker Rupert Blanchard. But will the transformations be all singing and dancing?
