This is Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is,
the show that pitches TV's best-loved antiques experts
against each other in an all-out battle for profit...
I'm a double your money girl.
..and gives you the insider's view of the trade.
You've got to be in it to win it.
Each week, one pair of duelling dealers
will face a different daily challenge. Lovely!
We've got some work to do. Let's go!
Putting their own money and their hard-earned reputations on the line
as they see who can make the most money from buying and selling.
Get in there!
Today, sparkling antiques superman, Paul Hayes,
takes on the big, burly bargain bruiser, Philip Serrell,
in an epic clash of fox-like cunning,
and wholesome blue-eyed charm.
Can you see that?
It's just these trousers.
Coming up, Paul is hearing voices.
I can hear £8 coming over the airwaves, here.
Phil is hearing predictions.
You are going to win, Mr Serrell. Put your Money Where Your Mouth Is.
You are going to beat Paul Hayes.
And Paul does a deal that, quite literally,
steals the shirt from his back.
Just hope I haven't put you off your breakfast.
Fasten your seatbelts, this is Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is.
As the sun rises over a magnificent Blighty,
the county of Sussex is waking up,
with no idea what's about to hit it.
Wily Worcestershire warhorse,
Phil "The Fox" Serrell,
and lovable Lancashire legionnaire,
Paul "Mr Morecambe" Hayes,
are about to begin a buying battle so epic
that their names will become legend.
It's not what you spend. It's how much profit you make.
Which of these great gladiators will reign victorious?
To the winner, the spoils of war, adulation and worship.
To the loser, the never-ending torment of wondering where it all went wrong.
Not everything is plain sailing. I think we need some fresh jokes!
Today, the field of combat is the mighty car boot fair
in Ford, West Sussex,
a disused airfield, jam-packed with over 200 stallholders.
The challenge to our brave boys is to wade through the wares
and uncover the pieces that pack the biggest profit punch.
Did you see how he reeled me in, like fishing? Did you?
They've each got £250 of their own money to spend,
and whatever profit they make goes to their chosen charities.
Our tale begins while the nation still sleeps.
Paul Hayes and Philip Serrell,
it's time to Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is.
Where is he? Hello. How are you, mate?
Morning, Philip, how are you?
I didn't know they had one of these in the morning.
I know, what time is it? Is it night time or daytime?
It's dark out there.
Everything starts early in car boot sales.
-But are you raring to go, fighting fit?
-Like a coiled spring!
-Really? I can see that.
-Have you got a plan?
-I'm keeping my options open.
I'll buy anything that's not damaged. What about yourself?
-Daft and dangerous, mate.
-Is that just me?
All the best.
All the best to you, Phil. Good luck, mate.
Yes, out you go, boys, heads held high.
Make this a clash that will go down in history.
With the sun rising in the sky,
our fighter pilots are out on the car boot airstrip,
circling each other with sights set on target treasure.
This is a dogfight like no other, but who'll be flying high
and who will end up in a spin?
The man from Morecambe stands for all things bright eyed and bushy tailed.
He might be facing the frightening Mr Fox,
but it'll take more than that to put the dampeners on his optimism.
There is literally everything, from walking sticks, thimbles bits of jewellery, you know.
I'm bound to find something here and there's quite a lot of stalls to go at as well.
So I'm just going to take my time for five minutes and soak up the atmosphere.
Yes, don't waste any time though, Paul.
The Fox is prowling like a caged beast.
And his street smart strategy is sharp as a knife.
The plan with this, really, is just to whizz round as quick as you can,
get your bearings, eyeball a few stalls
and see what you can find, and then go back and have a real proper look.
But I think if you do a quick whizz like this,
it does give you a bit of a clue as to where to go later on.
Two very different personalities, two very different approaches.
But while Hayes is taking in his surroundings, Serrell swoops, on a cribbage board.
This is a nice little thing, isn't it?
A little crib board.
I think that's a bit of fun but it needs a real good polish.
I would think that dates to about 1880...or 1900.
And this has basically been used as a pub game.
-What's the best you can do on that?
Shall I ask you again?
-You can do.
-Go on, what's the best? The real best.
-Can you do any better than that?
-I'll give you a tenner for it.
-OK. I'll leave him there for you.
Icy cool, the Fox threatens to walk.
And it works!
I'll tell you what, look. There it is.
I haven't got any change.
-It's going, it's going. It's going back to you.
-Go on, go on.
It's got to be a tenner, mate. Honestly. It's got to be a tenner.
-It's going to be on TV, this, isn't it?
-Go on, matey.
You're a gentleman. Thank you.
And I'm really, really pleased with that.
The thing that bothers me a little bit is, who am I going to sell this to?
I've just bought this. This is what you call impulse shopping.
Spontaneous, maybe, but Phil is flying.
Mr Morecambe is now trailing in the Serrell slipstream,
but our ace soon finds something to float his boat.
Here we are. Look at that.
"Titania. On her outward passage to load tea."
It's getting better. "At Shanghai in 1873.
"Running with a good south-westerly wind."
Do you know what? I think that's all right at £15.
I'm going to see what the dealer can do it for.
See if we can get a bit knocked off.
After a bit of Hayes haggling, the seller drops a fiver
and Paul pays just £10 for his painting.
I quite like this, actually.
I've discovered on the back some additional information.
We have a certificate of authenticity here.
It's been made to commemorate the 160th anniversary
of the British Sailors' Society.
There's great interest in this, I should think.
So, after a slow start, Paul's got the wind in his sails
and he's cruising at a rate of knots.
One thing I am looking forward to is finding something musical
and I've spotted something here.
No, it's not a guitar, it's not a piano.
Is it a French horn or a tuba? Answers on a postcard, please.
Hello. What exactly is it?
-I think it is a tenor horn.
-A tenor horn.
-A tenor horn.
Is that the price or is that the name of the item?
-It's a great maker though, isn't it?
-It is a Boosey and Hawkes.
They stopped trading about 20 years ago. They just do sheet music now.
It's got all its serial number
so you can trace the date by the serial number on them, evidently.
I can play two songs. I can play badly, or somewhere else.
Which one would you like?
-Just for you!
How much is that going to be?
PLAYS OFF KEY
Can be £30?
-How about 35?
£35 with the case.
-I think we'll shake on that. Shall we have that?
-Yes, why not?
While Mr Morecambe takes a moment to blow his own trumpet,
The Fox is pounding the aisles.
And it's not long before he's pawing at some garden furniture.
-These look interesting. There's no age to these, is there?
-They're just comfortable.
-You and I are older than these, aren't we?
-I think you are right.
-Are they all right, sounds in wind and limb?
You're quite happy to sit in one and relax.
I'd get in there and never get out again.
You'd need a block and tackle to get me out.
-How much are they?
-15 the pair.
-Take a tenner for the two?
-Yeah, go on.
Quick as a flash that's purchase number two.
The Fox seals the deal with no messing.
The thing about these is, there's no age to these at all.
But, you know, they say antiques are green
and this is the ultimate example of green stuff, really.
I've bought these and they're going to go on to somebody else.
MUSIC: Theme from The Dambusters
Oh, well done, Phil, top notch.
The sun is now up and both our profit rockets are flying high over this car boot airstrip.
But it's our happy Harrier who's tuning in to a corking collectable.
-Look at that, that's a good one, isn't it? May I pick this up?
Look at that, isn't that a retro-looking item.
It's Bakelite, 1960s. You haven't got the little bit of gold there?
Sorry, several people have asked that today.
-But it is working?
-It works extremely well.
-How much is that little fellow?
-Is that the price?
Can that be a fiver?
-One bid is worth a... Hang on.
-I can hear £8 coming over the airwaves here.
Is that all right? All right, OK.
I'll have that, thank you very much. I like that. And that for luck.
Hang on a minute, Paul's offered more than the lady asked for.
Maybe that radio's got dodgy reception.
That's lovely, thank you very much.
# I like it
# I like it
# I like the words you say
# And all the things you do... #
I love this item. It's just so retro looking.
It makes you smile looking at it. I think it's fantastic.
I could imagine this in a nice funky 1950s' style kitchen.
It's got this turquoise, or greeny blue, marine blue Bakelite finish
which isn't cracked or damaged in anyway.
But, by law, I have to check the wiring
and I noticed there is only two wires on this. There's no earth.
I have a choice of getting it up to the UK standard to sell it as a radio
or sell it as an ornament.
What do you think? Hang on, it's coming in loud and clear now.
Really, find out later.
# ..Being here with you... #
As our bright-eyed boy zooms up, up and away,
it seems he's been bitten by the Bakelite bug.
This brings it all back. I'm showing my age now, look at that.
Hey, can you see that? That's fantastic, isn't it?
Talk about retro.
I haven't tried that one. This I've tried.
I really liked that hairdryer, as well, actually,
but it's the thought of having to get it checked for electrical work
and it just adds more expense, really.
With Paul wondering and pondering
and Phil stalking the aisles like a buying behemoth,
let's catch up on the figures.
Both our flying aces took to the skies with £250
of their own money to spend.
The Fox is being careful with his cash,
targeting two items for just £20,
leaving him a whopping £230 still burning a hole in his pocket.
Paul has been letting rip with both barrels
picking up three purchases for £53
and leaving £197 still to spend.
As we hit the second chapter in this tale of derring-do,
it's time for our profit pilots to dig a bit deeper.
They need to step up and stride out.
Eyes peeled for those rare gems that will best boost
their precious profit pots.
Paul is determined not to be outfoxed.
He's got the measure of that Philip Serrell.
You haven't seen a gentleman about this big called Philip?
-Look out for him, look out for him,
he looks like a nice guy but he's a very shrewd businessman.
He's buying all the bargains, aren't you, Phil. I know.
Paul Hayes, he's younger than me.
He's good-looking. He's talented.
He's a really nice bloke.
Fantastic, you like people like that, don't you?
Don't get bitter, Foxy, get buying
because the Morecambe Maestro has dug up a medical marvel.
There's some very interesting items here.
This gentleman has some old anatomical illustrations
from an original book. The gentleman said there's over 100 of them
but they're £15 an illustration and it's a bit more than our budget.
-There's a human body.
-There's an education here, Phil.
This bit here, you don't want to know what that bit does there.
-They're interesting, aren't they? Don't you think?
-No, I don't think.
-Those are awful.
-Do you know what, there's a good market for this type of thing.
This is medicine as they understood it in the 1830s.
Foxy is flummoxed and it's not just Paul's anatomical prints
that are interfering with his equilibrium.
The one thing that you don't want to see in an autograph book is this.
That ceases to become an autograph book and it's just a book.
No matter how hard he tries, Phil is struggling to spend his money
but Paul's having no such problems.
He's just made his fourth purchase of the day - a ship's log for £20.
Do you know what, I found a really interesting item from Liverpool.
It's almost my neck of the woods.
This is a log book from the Cunard Steamship Company.
The ship is called the Phrygia.
What I like about this is it has the day-to-day running
of what it was like on board this Cunard ship.
It looks like it set sail from Liverpool.
"The lights well, the vents well, the moorings and gangways clear."
What a great thing to have. You don't come across one of those every day.
A captain's log, there we go, it's intergalactic.
MUSIC: Star Trek Theme Tune
There he is, ladies and gentlemen,
boldly going where no man has gone before.
And The Fox isn't far behind.
He's just closed a deal on his third item for £25.
I've just bought this and I'm really, really pleased with it.
Erm, it's a trunk.
Sometimes they had interiors fitted with hangers and that type of thing.
But it would date from around about, I would guess, 1900ish,
somewhere around there. What I love about this are two things.
One are these wooden slats on the top and, look at this,
it's got some original travelling labels on each end.
It's better to travel in expectation than arrive in disappointment, isn't it?
Like the profit predator that he is, Phil's straight off in search of more items,
but the irrepressible Mr Morecambe can't resist a little diversion.
Now then, Philip, a fresh joke for you.
Two television aerials meet on a roof and fall in love
and they decide to get married.
The wedding was a bit of a wash-out, but the reception... Oh-oh!
Oh, better stick to the job in hand, Paul.
At least one of our heavyweights is taking this battle seriously
and our stealthy Fox is now level pegging with the Joker in our pack.
Phil has just racked up purchase number four.
It's a little stainless steel candlestick.
Probably late '60s, early '70s.
It's designed by a man called Stuart Devlin.
If that was a piece of silver, that'd be 150 to £200.
He's really, really collectible at the moment.
Well, that's if it was silver, it's not.
It's cost me £3.
I'm just hoping that his stainless stuff is almost as collectible as his silver.
Time will tell.
Well, while Phil is hitting his stride, Paul's hitting a road block.
-My gosh, you look much younger.
-Oh, thank you very much.
-It's just these trousers.
It's a fan after some of his expertise.
I've got something, I don't know what it is.
It could be for putting your scarves over the top, maybe.
-Are you sure about that?
-You'd hang your coat on there
and you'd put something over the top..
-I've got something interesting?
-You've got lots of lovely things.
-Sorry to bother you about this.
-Not at all.
-I thought I'd use the opportunity.
-You do right.
-It's nice to have met you.
With Paul doing his best to help his lady in need,
Phil takes the opportunity to push on.
Not once has he used his strategy of going for the daft and dangerous,
but that could all be about to change.
Would you like me to tell you your fortune?
You have to find items to sell, put your money where your mouth is.
You are going to beat Paul Hayes.
-How much is that, my love?
-To you, I've got it up for 18
but you can have it for ten!
-I'll give you a fiver for it.
-Don't be mean, Mr Serrell.
You've always been my favourite.
How about eight?
I can't do change, honestly. Change is no good.
Well, just give me a tenner then.
I tell you what, £7.50.
-I thought you didn't have no change?
-I haven't, but you have.
-Come on, then, £7.50.
-Go on, my love.
Thank you, you're an angel.
Cross the lady's palm with silver, Phil, and then tell us what you've got.
It sort of looks like a Victorian glass dump and they can be quite collectible
either as paperweights, or people use them as doorstops.
Is that Victorian? No, it's Elizabethan.
Unfortunately the second and not the first.
Hey-ho, £7.50, somebody's got to like it.
What a turnaround, the Worcester Warrior moves ahead
and our Lamb from Lancashire is suddenly on the back foot,
not that you'd notice.
Yes, here we go.
# Oh, I've got the put your money blues
# Oh, oh, oh... #
That sounds awful, doesn't it?
No, I don't think I'm going to use it.
I think the keys are all wrong on that one, mate.
# It's the final count down.#
Oh, do come along, Paul. Focus!
It's now getting late in the day and the stallholders are starting to pack up.
The race is on to find those last crucial items.
# ..The final count down #
The Fox is first to strike with what could be a nice little URN-er.
-Is this yours, my love?
-I bet you haven't got room for that in the car, have you?
What's the best you can do on that?
-Tenner and I'll take it now.
She's a hard lady, isn't she?
-Take a tenner, darling.
Go on, take a tenner.
Why should I take a tenner, what's special about him?
-Nothing, but I only got a tenner.
-You're an angel, thank you.
So Mr Morecambe's not the only one who can turn on a bit of charm, eh, Foxy?
I'm really pleased about that. Because...
A lot of these were used to bring olives over to this country.
I just think that's a really cool thing. I love it.
It's quite a worrying time now. I'm running out of options here.
Not only can I not find anything to buy to make a profit,
I just can't find anything to buy! Everyone's gone home!
As Paul hits turbulence, he starts retracing his steps
and, just in time, finds himself back at the anatomical prints.
He does a deal and gets four for £40.
# ..The final count down... #
I've saved the best till last.
This is a fantastic set of illustrations.
I'd love to have bought all of them.
Hopefully I can find a doctor, or someone in the medical profession that likes them.
It's the end of the day now and I know just how he feels!
So this car boot sale has been a war to light up the skies
but now all deals are done and dusted, let's see who spent what.
Both our daredevil dealers started the day with £250
of their own money to spend.
Phil "The Fox" Serrell had a slow start
but rocketed away in the later stages,
bagging six items for just £65.50.
Paul "Mr Morecambe" Hayes started well
but stumbled as he approached the finishing line.
He's notched up five purchases for £113.
Now it's all about who makes the most profit.
-Which is your best buy?
-I must admit, it's the log book.
Look at that, isn't that fantastic? It's from the Cunard Steamship Company 1962-1963.
That's a log of where the ship went.
Where the ship was going and where the ship is now.
You're on the coast, as well, aren't you?
There should be somebody who would be interested
I tell you, the other thing I love is the radio.
-Can you imagine all those wonderful broadcasts that you had in the '50s and '60s.
-This is the BBC...
-I think they're fantastic.
-I used to talk proper then.
You look like you're going on holiday you've got two deck chairs,
a cabin trunk and a cribbage board.
You're set for the Mediterranean.
They're not old but the best profit is going to be in these two chairs.
I'm really pleased with me trunk. You probably think that's just a trunk, don't you?
Er, believe it or not, Philip, that is just a trunk.
-It's going to be a coffee table.
-It looks like a trunk to me.
Are you all right?
It might even be a three-piece suite by the time I've finished with it.
I was going to ask you, what does a Greek EARN?
-Get out, buy me a drink, get out of here.
-It's a joke.
-I know, I know, I know.
-What does a Greek...
Hold onto your hats, this is where the game really hots up.
Our boys must now sell their items, travelling the length and breadth of this great land of ours,
with one goal in mind - making the biggest, fattest profit they possible can.
In mighty Malvern, The Fox is in his lair,
going through his purchases.
This was a star lot for me, a bit of Stuart Devlin.
I paid £3 for that. Hopefully, that'll produce me a ten-fold profit.
The glass dump, that was £7.50.
There's got to be a profit in that.
This triangular crib board, unusual to have them triangular.
That was £10.
I'll try and find somebody who's into their pub games to buy that.
Then we've got my trunk, I paid £25 for it
and I can either turn it into a cool, funky table,
or, if someone comes along and offers me enough money, I'll just sell it as it is.
Phil must also find new homes for the pair of chairs and the urn.
At home in lovely Lancashire, Mr Morecambe is taking stock.
We've got this fantastic picture here of the Titania,
a bit of naval history. That was £10, what a bargain.
A brass instrument, a tenor horn, it was a bit more than a tenner.
I've enjoyed polishing that, it looks great. There's a good chance I'll get a profit.
Then, of course, we have these anatomical prints!
These date from 1836.
A bit of a Sherlock Holmes moment there for me, I think.
It's a bit of a mixed bag, but that's me all over.
I haven't spent a fortune and I think there's a bit of profit in these.
Paul also has the challenge of selling the ship's log
and the 1960s' valve radio.
Two magnificent collections of collectibles
and two of the best antiques experts around.
Now all they need is plenty of punters providing pots of profit,
but none of that comes without serious leg work
and it doesn't matter how many meetings they arrange,
until they've shaken on it and the money's changed hands,
no deal is truly sealed.
It's Mr Morecambe who leaps into action first.
Like a particularly cheery-looking, profit-seeking missile,
he's headed for Lancaster University
armed with the anatomical prints he bought for £40.
# Your neck bone connected from chest bone
# Your neck bone connected from your shoulder bone... #
He's arranged to meet Dr Taylor and Professor Ockleford,
experts in anatomy, who instantly recognise the significance
of the prints in the development of medical understanding.
They look textbook like.
They look as though they could be a very early textbook.
So being 1836, does that have any relevance for you?
Was this like a golden age of medicine?
The history of the science of academic physiology in the UK
probably dates to about this period.
Prior to that, in 1832 the Anatomy Act was established.
People used to use human bodies to teach for dissection.
So these sort of textbooks had to come around,
otherwise you were cutting up bodies all the time.
Jones Quain famously produced a set of lithographs,
which, I guess, it's possible this could be one of.
So he would have brought it, so he made it accessible
-for more people to learn more about it.
People like him were real pioneers.
If these are 1836, nearly 200 years ago and we're still doing the same thing with textbooks.
They're a fantastic set.
If I was to ask you £80 for them.
-We've had a prior discussion with a senior colleague..
..who's going to bankroll this exercise.
Oh, they're £1,000 each then. LAUGHTER
-Would £60 be a good offer?
-60 would be a good offer.
-Is that where you see them?
-Yes, I think so.
Do you know what, I will accept your £60.
-Shall we shake on that?
-Yes, thank you.
Professor, thank you so much. Doctor, thank you very much.
What are we shaking with, what's that technically called?
-That's the hand.
Excellent! What a cracking start from the beaming boy wonder.
The four anatomical prints provide a full-bodied profit of £20.
Sorry to keep you waiting, Philip. Philip?
Don't you worry about our Philip, he's still full of life.
He's a stone's throw from Worcester Cathedral,
visiting Gabrielle, who runs an antiques' shop.
He's hoping she's going to take a shine to his glass dump.
-That's a dump, isn't it?
-It looks like a dump, yes.
It's a glass dump, and a dump's like when a piece of glass is made,
it was the waste on the end, is that right?
-It was the waste at the end of the day, I think.
They were very often bottle factories
and rather than put the glass back into the kilns, or whatever,
they would use it to make these doorstops and things.
Gabrielle takes the piece off Phil's hands for £12.50,
giving him a profit of £5.
The wily one hot foots it back to Fox HQ,
as he's expecting a visitor.
He's arranged to show his contact, Clive, the Devlin candlestick holder which he purchased for £3.
-It's an iconic bit of design.
-It's going to be a classic in the future.
It's going to be a classic price in the future, hopefully.
What are you looking for that?
I'd like to get as close to 60 quid as I can, really.
-I've got to stop you because there's that traditional
sharp intake of breath that the antiques trade give you.
It's just parting with money.
Really, realistically, I was looking around 40.
-Hang on, let's see if I've learnt anything.
-DEEP BREATH IN
-I will tell you, I bought it for three quid.
-OK, hang on a minute.
-DEEP BREATH IN
Yeah! I think it's worth 55 quid.
I could do 50 on it for you.
I'll let you have it for 53 quid, there you are.
-That's fine with me.
-I'll shake you by the hand.
Phil sells the candlestick
for an incredible 16 times what he bought it for
and makes a red hot profit of £50.
1, 2, 3...
Back in Morecambe, Paul's hoping to make waves with his 1960s' radio.
The Put Your Money rules state that electrical items must be
PAC tested to make sure they are safe for sale.
And Paul is showing the radio to local electrician Barry.
So that is sending power to the machine?
That is sending 500 volts down the two wires
and it's showing that it's a pass.
The test costs £3 and now our rule-abiding boy can take the radio
into town to see Amanda,
who runs a shop selling vintage clothing and accessories.
I thought what you need in here is a bit of background music
and what a better thing to have. Do you like it?
Yes, I like the colour. I'm a sucker for things like this.
-There you go.
-You can't beat the crackle, can you?
-I love it!
-It's like vinyl.
-Is it the sort of thing you like?
Yes, as a prop in the shop, really.
Well, that's great news,
but what our Paul doesn't realise is that Amanda is a bit of a fan.
-If I was to ask you £25 for the item?
-On one condition.
I'll give you 25 if you will model a pair of trunks for me.
-A pair of trunks? What sort of shop is this?
OK, well, we'll shake on that then, I'm up for anything.
-Thank you very much.
-Changing room's through there.
Here we come, here comes the 1960s.
Oh, the trials our antiques Superman has to endure.
Come on, Paul, don't be shy. Think of the money.
Dear me, dear me. Calm down, ladies, calm down.
Do you need any help, Paul?
Oh, somebody's keen. Come on, Mr H,
put the lady out of her misery.
-Here you are. Who's for a swim?

They are a bit chafing.
Well, you've got to hand it to the lad.
What he won't do for money.
And after the cost of the PAC test, the radio signals a profit of £14.
So there you are, one satisfied customer.
I really did lose my shirt on that deal.
There is a bit of profit there. I'm up for a laugh.
Just hope I haven't put you off your breakfast. Taxi!
Breakfast, lunch and dinner, Paul.
So, was the near nudity worth it?
Let's see how the sales are stacking up.
Paul "Mr Morecombe" Hayes has so far sold two of his items.
He may have lost his dignity, but he has racked up a profit of £34.
Phil "The Fox" Serrell has also made two sales
but he's kept his clothes on.
And he's in the lead. His profit pot currently holds £55.
Buoyed by his early success,
The Fox is determined to press the advantage.
He takes his urn to a business in rural Worcestershire
that specialises in, amongst other things, garden pots.
The urn earns big money. A hefty profit of £40.
And he sells his garden chairs to Mark,
an old mate, for £50, making another comfortable profit of £40.
But Paul's not fazed by Phil's fantastic form.
Our northern boy has a bit of brass
and he knows exactly what to do with it.
PLAYS OUT OF TUNE
Do you know what, this is actually really, really good fun,
but as you can tell, I can't play it particularly well.
So I've brought it along to Morecambe Brass Band to see
if they can use one of these for one of their starting out pupils.
Paul has arranged to meet Bernard and Geoff from the band
but can he hit the right notes?
-I can see the dents.
-It adds to its character, you know.
It's quite a rough band it came from, you know what it's like.
Looking round the room here, all these are silver-coloured.
They are brass, but these are silver-plated.
And this one is lacquered.
What would it cost to buy a new tenor horn, a good quality up and running one?
Top model tenor horns are about 3,000 or £4,000 to buy.
Is the tenor horn about to belt out a profit?
First, Geoff wants to hear it in action.
PLAYS A SCALE
There we are!
If I was to ask £60 for it,
would I be blowing my own trumpet or would I be talking out of the band?
-We'd be looking at £50, I would say, maximum.
-Can we shake on £50 then?
-I think so.
-Well, we'll do that.
That's lovely, thank you very much, Bernard and Geoff.
Yes, good work, Paul.
The horn brings in a profit to the tune of £15.
Excuse me, Andy. Thank you very much. OK.
MUSIC: "Bring Me Sunshine"
Now, our maestro is renowned for his love of music
and there's no other tune that says more about our Mr Morecambe.
That's put a smile on his face.
Paul skips away into the night
to plan the rest of his antiques attack.
Now, The Fox is never happier than under the cover of darkness.
He can prowl about seeking out his unsuspecting victims
and it looks like grub's up.
I've got my crib board and I really need to find somebody
who's just a bit more than proficient in pub games to sell it to.
I'm in Stoke and I'm here to see one of the city's most famous sons.
Now. Pool, darts, crib. That should give you a bit of a clue.
Tonight, in this unsuspecting Stoke pub,
we are about to see one of the most brutal clashes in TV history.
Phil The Fox Serrell goes head-to-head with a world champion.
Darts player extraordinaire, Phil The Power Taylor.
-Phil Taylor, how are you?
-15 times world darts champion.
-Great, absolutely great.
-With the first prize that you won...
-Was it 500 quid?
Yes, and they paid me in £50 notes and I had a row with the fella
because I thought he was trying to rob me.
I'd never seen a 50. A £50 note, you're kidding.
We never got £50 a week. So, yeah, that was my first one.
As a demon darts player, he knows his pub games
but will Phil The Power feel the love for Phil The Fox?
I was hoping that I might be able to sell you this.
Yeah, yeah, depends on the price.
-Well, I was hoping I might get 50 quid for it.
-Or close to it.
-All right. I tell you what I'll do,
I'll play you the highest score out of six darts.
If you win, I'll give you 50 quid.
-If I win, it's 40.
-No pressure here! Come on, here we go.
Ladies and gentlemen, in one corner, the defender,
with over 150 professional titles to his name,
including a record 15 World Championships,
It's Phil The Power Taylor.
In the other corner,
the challenger, with absolutely no experience whatsoever,
and he hasn't even got any tattoos, it is Phil The Powerless Serrell.
-Stand back, son, give me room.
The Mighty Fox is first up to the oche.
Three darts down and The Fox is on 33. Step up, The Power.
-This is unprecedented. Phil The Power Taylor scores just 30.
Our little fox cub is in the lead. Could he actually take down a world champion? Last three darts.
Oh, that's none. That's not so good.
That's one. That's 34.
Oh, not looking so rosy.
Phil Taylor needs just ten points to take this monumental match.
-And one throw is all it takes.
After six arrows each, its 39 points to The Fox
but The Power takes it with 70.
The darts may have done him, but the crib board still sells for £40,
which is a powerful profit for our Phil of £30.
Not many people take money off Phil The Power Taylor, let me tell you.
Yes, The Fox has stolen a very healthy lead.
If our Paul is to claw even a draw, he really needs to make some money.
And Paul's hoping to do just that with the print of the Titania.
He's come all the way to Southampton,
the home of the British Sailors' Society
who issued the print in 1978.
He's meeting David, the society's principal chaplain.
Would this be something you would be interested in for your offices here?
There's a place on the wall. It would look fantastic.
We do have some space on the walls, as you can see,
but we have no space on the wall over here,
because we have one already!
Well, you can't SEA FARER than that.
It could do with a clean
and you might have a better chance of selling it!
Well, that may have made him seasick but whilst he's in Southampton,
our boy visits Peter who sells ocean memorabilia.
He snaps up the ocean logbook for £30,
giving Paul a vitally important profit of £10.
So, as our Lancashire lad goes back to square one with the ship print,
all he can do is hope is that wily Mr Fox has a tough time
selling his final item, the trunk.
And he's taking a punt.
This piece of glass will just fit on there like that.
And I just think that's a really cool little coffee table.
Isn't that a great thing?
Yes, you might want to dust the glass there, Foxy.
Phil bought the trunk for £25 and has spent the same again
fitting the table top.
He takes it to see Lee
who buys and sells antique furniture in Upton-upon-Severn.
I like your way of thinking.
Because, as a trunk, I wouldn't probably be interested in it,
but now I can see what you've done...
I was hoping to get close to 150 quid for it. Oh, look at that wince.
-I think to leave myself a bit of room, Phil, 75 quid.
I think I'm stuffed on that, Mr Lee.
Oh, that hurts.
Will Lee up the offer or will Phil storm out in disgust?
Find out in just a moment.
Paul eventually manages to trade in the troublesome Titania print.
He sells it to a sailor in Morecambe and doubles his money,
making a welcome profit of £10.
And that's the last shot in this monumental car-boot battle.
Our duelling dealers dug deep and gave it masses of muscle.
They each had £250 of their own money to spend.
The Fox bought six items and,
including the trunk renovation, spent £90.50 pence.
Mr Morecambe bought only five items and, including the electrical test,
he spent a total of £116.
But now it's all about profit.
All of the money that Phil and Paul have made
from today's challenge will be going to a charity of their choice.
So, it's time to find out who is
today's Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is champion.
-Philip, how are you?
-I'm really well, Paul, you?
-Did you enjoy your car boot?
-I did, it was a real learning curve for me.
Tell me, which was your best bit?
-I must admit, I enjoyed conducting a brass band.
With that tenor horn. What about yourself?
Well, I bought my cribbage board and I sold it to Phil Taylor.
I have to tell you, I don't think anybody else knows this,
-but I missed the board with one dart. How did you get on?
-Shall we find out?
Yes, go on then three, two, one, go!
-Look at that.
We've both made some money, haven't we?
Yes, we've both made a few quid.
But there is a rumour going round about me.
I heard, you in your underpants.
It was a pair of vintage trunks.
Oh, a runaway win for Mr Serrell.
So, what did happen with the trunk turned coffee-table?
Did Lee come up from £75?
-Maximum, then again it would be a gamble on my part, £100.
I think your 100 quid's fair and I'm going to take that.
-You're a gentleman, thank you.
And there you have it, a solid profit of £50.
I must admit I really enjoyed the car boot sale.
I made a good bit of profit. Not quite as much as Phil, but I met some very interesting people
and got to wear a vintage pair of swimming trunks.
What I do know about this programme is you need a bit of luck
and I think I had a real bit of luck walking into that piece of Devlin.
But you know, for me, the real highlight was playing darts with Phil The Power Taylor.
And I think I had him really worried.
I think he was worried that I was going to hit him with one of them.
Yes, everyone's afraid of the Big Bad Fox
but our pair of warriors now need to recharge themselves
because there is another epic challenge waiting around the corner.
Tomorrow, Paul gets another chance to win big when our bargain busters
take on the French at a massive market in Normandy.
