'This is the show that pitches TV's antiques experts against each other
'in an all-out battle for profit.'
I'm a double-your-money girl.
'And gives you an insider's view of the trade.'
You've got to be in it to win it.
'Each week, one pair of dealers will face a different daily challenge...'
We've got some work to do!
'..putting their own money and reputations on the line,
'as they see who can make the most money from buying and selling.'
Get in there!
'Today's challenge is a double whopper,
'the most daring contest our glorious gladiators have faced yet.'
The pressure's on to find something before everyone goes home.
'It's the Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is Showdown!
'It's safety harnesses at the ready!
'The demon deals will come thick and fast
'as our collectable cowboys are pushed to the edge of endurance.'
2,700 euros. I think we'll move on.
'They're locking horns at FOUR different antiques events
'to find awesome pieces to sell on for maximum profit.'
Swine! I could have got it for 120.
'Coming up, Phil is forced to take desperate measures.'
This is a first! Make money out of Phil Serrell.
'The Showdown induces serious indecision.'
Yeah, why not?
My gut feeling's telling me no.
We'll have it.
'And our boys face an emotional roller coaster at the auction.'
As time's gone by, every shred of confidence has been ripped from me.
'Have no doubt, this is a proper show-stopper,
'as our experts go head-to-head for the title every dealer desires -
'to become the Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is champion!'
'This is the mighty Showdown, where our two prize fighters compete
'for every expert's dream come true -
'complete victory and total superiority
'over their opponent.
'Our sparring Spartans are two renowned and revered dealers.
'It's the hard-hitting gavel-master from Worcester...'
I'll give you 50 quid for it.
'..versus Lancashire's luckiest and liveliest lad.'
This'll put me brain power back on.
'Make no mistake, this is a challenge like no other,
'one to test knowledge, stamina and contact books to the max.
'Time for our boys to find out exactly what's in store.'
"Paul and Phil, welcome to your biggest challenge yet, the Showdown.
"You must each buy eight items during your regular challenges.
"You have to buy two at each event.
"You can spend up to £1,000 of your own money."
OK! Just give it to the missus!
"You can each sell up to four items wherever you want."
"The remaining items will go into an auction.
"Your auction will be in Leicestershire in ten weeks from now,
"in direct competition with your opponent."
May the best man win!
"Choose your items wisely,
"because the winner will be the one who makes the most profit."
That rules us both out!
Good luck, matey. Let's get at it.
'Well, let's not hang about!
'Both our antiques giants have £1,000 of their own money to spend.
'That includes any restoration, repairs and buying fees.
'Our collectors will make their purchases in the usual hunting grounds -
'a car boot sale, a foreign antiques market,
'a UK antiques fair and an auction.'
'Each location brings its own challenges, but the aim remains the same -
'to pick out the pieces that can pack the most powerful profit,
'with the added twist of the Showdown auction.
'Strategy is needed every step of the way and, frankly, anything could happen!
'Our dealing duellists hit the ground running
'at the Ford Airfield in West Sussex.
'Both our boys have to dig out two items,
'but they'll need to duck and dive all the way.'
I've really got to buy things I think will do well in the auction.
What's that at the moment?
Well, Chinese things are hot to trot.
If I find that, that would be fantastic.
'The first item Phil pinpoints is, indeed, Chinese.
'He's either very good or he's one lucky Fox.'
-How much is that vase, please?
-That one? Er... 140.
It's Kang Xsi. Circa 1880.
We call it "Kang gee", I suppose.
I'd like to buy it, but I'd like to give you a lot less than that.
It's got a couple of hair cracks.
-Very... Not that they're going to worry about
on that rim there.
90 quid, I might be interested. I'm going to have a think about it.
'Foxy knows this is going nowhere.
'So he turns to tactics - buy two items to get a better deal.
'And he goes for a miniature ivory cricket bat.'
-100 quid the two.
-95, go on.
-You'll double up on the vase.
-You get that as an extra.
-95. Come on... You're a gentleman.
'There you go! The Fox is off and running!'
That's a negotiating tactic.
If you hang your hand out, sooner or later, someone's gonna want to shake it. You're a gentleman.
So we said 95...
'That's the way to do it. In one fell swoop,
'Phil buys both his car boot items.
'The cricket bat was made before 1947,
'so it's legal to buy under the legislation governing ivory.
'Mr Serrell is sorted, but Mr Hayes is on his tail.
'He buys a set of commemorative copperware for £170
'and he's delighted!
'The collection has strong links to Britain's naval history.'
These came from the Foudroyant, which was Nelson's flagship.
It was wrecked in Blackpool in 1897.
It was copper-bottomed, that's where the term comes from.
They excavated it and made these tourism items.
Nelson's flagship. Wonderful!
Wrecked in Blackpool. We've all been there!
'Speak for yourself!
'The Blackpool link could prove handy when it comes to selling.
'First and foremost, there's another item to find.
'The price tag on a 1920s Indian table is £250.
'But when he spots evidence of restoration, Paul goes in low.'
How about 100 quid?
-120, it's yours.
-Do I want it for 120?
Stained up, your eyes squint. 110, we have a deal.
-Is that all right, mate?
'That's incredible! A discount of 55%.
'Mr Morecambe walks away a very happy man. Rightly so.'
I think Morecambe's that way.
'Well, with one round down,
'how are our battle-hardened boys getting on?
'Their budget is to be spent across the four Showdown locations.
'Phil, the Fox, Serrell has been modest with his money...
'..Paul, Mr Morecambe, Hayes is away and spending...
'That cash must be converted into euros for:
'Our skirmish takes place in Caen, in northern France.
'Never mind the language barrier, forget the unfamiliar currency,
'our warriors are focused on finding two items
'for their Showdown stockpile.
'Once again, the Fox makes an early show of cunning.
'He is first to strike - on a metamorphic table.'
"Metamorphic" because it converts from one thing to another.
This is a centre table that turns into a buffet.
How old is it?
It's about 1860, 1870...
'That's a bit of luck, to find a British stallholder.
'No fumbling with the French.
'One short metamorphosis later,
'and the buffet becomes a table.'
You've got a slight problem where the veneer's flaking off,
which is a sort of a problem.
-What's the price of this in euros?
-It's 375 euros.
See, I'd like to try and buy that for about 200 euros.
No. I can't do 200.
My best and final deal, right, is 240 euros.
-OK. It's a deal. 240.
-You're an angel, my love.
'Worked out in sterling, the table cost:
'Across the room, Mr Morecambe is umming and ah-ing
'about a Chinese cloisonne vase.
'It's marked up at 30 euros.'
Why not? It must be a 50 quid lump in the sale. Shall we have it?
I used to be indecisive. Now, I'm not so sure.
My gut feeling's telling me no. I'm going to waste your time here.
Let's have a think for a minute. Follow your instincts.
'Paul has a little think, but just a moment later...'
Go on! We'll have it!
Let's have a go! Put your money where your mouth is!
'This lad's exhausting to watch.
'When the trader drops the price to 25 euros, that seals the deal.
'It works out at:'
Everything I'm looking at here is 1,000 euros, 500 euros.
All of a sudden, this is 25 euros.
It seems a bit of a bargain, really.
'That's one item each, but Foxy's picked up the scent of a potential second purchase.
'It's a pair of boots!'
-Monsieur. Do you speak any English, sir?
'No luck with the language.
'Will the Fox be stung by the French?'
-What is his best price?
-Vous voulez les acheter?
-Oui. Le meilleur prix?
-Cinquante. Super boots.
Super boots! Hark at this!
-Oui. 50. C'est bon.
-Cor blimey? Whose side are you on?
-I'm going to have those for cheek!
-Even cheekier, I'm English.
'Excusez-moi? What did he say?'
Even cheekier, I'm English. Thank you very much indeed, sir.
-You're a rat!
I wish my French was as good as your English.
'Oh, Foxy! Hoodwinked!
'The boots cost our wounded soldier:
'Paul has dug up a pair of 19th century bronze candelabra.
'The price, 350 euros.
'He pulls out the paper and plunges in with a Hayes haggle.'
The gentleman's offering them for 280 euros.
Which is about £260.
The bronze, the ormolu, the Rococo - they're fantastic!
Can I say 260?
Merci beaucoup, monsieur.
'This Showdown is a bartering bonanza.
'Paul gets the candelabra for:
'Top marks for both our boys in their French homework.
'The foreign market was an expensive round...
'..Back in Blighty, our cheeky chancers' next epic encounter
'is at the Lincolnshire Showground.
'With 3,000 stalls, our boys need to move fast to find their items.
'But with the wind howling through the market, conditions are rough.
'This time, it's Paul who's first out of the traps.
'Like a prize-winning whippet, he buys a pair of 19th-century watercolours for £55.'
These are unusual. It looks like the artist has gone into the field
and captured the scene in pen.
When he's gone home, he's made this wonderful watercolour effect.
What I need to do is try and find out who Stanley Herdman was.
If he turns out to be a recognised artist, we've cracked it.
'Ooh, looks promising, Mr Morecambe.
'Foxy is wasting no time, either.
'He's found a periscope used in the First World War.'
They were in their trench and wanted to see what was going on.
Instead of poking your head up you'd push this up above the trenches
and you could see what was going on.
You think of all that enormous life that was lost in that war.
You just wonder who would have held this
and whether he made it home or not.
'Inside the marquee, Phil tries his old trick -
'offer on two items for a discount.
'He pairs it up with a Chinese style display cabinet.
'They're each marked up at £80.'
-£110, the two.
-120 and I'll do a deal.
You're a gentleman. You always look after me.
Thank you very much indeed. £120 the two. That's £60 each.
-This is a first!
-Make money out of Phil Serrell.
-That's really harsh, that is!
'Some call him "skinflint", others "master haggler".
'The deal comes in the nick of time. The winds are picking up.
'Paul could have left things too late.'
A lot of stallholders have gone home. I can't blame them.
I've seen one whole stall almost disappear into the abyss.
'With the wind in his sails, our boy comes alongside
'a model of the famous tea clipper, the Cutty Sark.'
-The workmanship in that!
-Someone with plenty of time on their hands.
'The man wants £150.'
-Couldn't be a oner?
-It can be 120.
-You saw that coming!
-I knew it was coming!
I know that it's a really bad day,
but I'm trying to buy things as cheap as possible.
110 for it?
-You're a gentleman.
-You're a gentleman, too.
'So, all deals done!
'Even though the Cutty Sark is weighing Paul down,
'our boys have bagged the booty.
'But how are they doing with their finances?
'They both started out with £1,000 of their own money.
'It was a fairly cheap round for Phil, the Fox...
'..But Paul, Mr Morecambe, Hayes is charging ahead...
'..We come to the last of our four rounds,
'the awe-inspiring auction.
'The deep delving happens at the Jubilee Auction Rooms at Pewsey in Wiltshire.
'Phil is an auctioneer by trade, so he's very familiar with the psychology of the saleroom.
'Our bargain-busters start by viewing.
'The Fox finds Winston Churchill's take on World War II.
'The six volumes are in a large lot made up of dozens of books.'
I can buy a big job lot like this at one auction,
and hopefully, I can break it down into one lot, two lots, three lots,
and put that into another auction, then you've got a bit of gain.
So that could well help me.
'As Mr Morecambe continues searching for those final hidden gems,
'the auction gets under way, and the Fox is ready to pounce.'
There's a mirror coming up. It's very much shabby chic.
It's a 19th-century gilt Victorian painted frame.
Someone's put a new mirror in it.
It's quite a nice frame, actually. £30 for it? 20?
Reflect on it, chaps! Ten?
'The stealthy Fox bides his time. With no other interest, he seizes the moment.'
-I'll bid you a fiver, sir.
-No, sir. It doesn't work like that.
-You can have a sticky bun and £10.
-Go on, then.
At £10. At £10. I'll take 12 now...
-At £10, then. I'm selling at ten...
'The Fox revels in that cheeky auction room banter.
'Including the commission, the mirror cost him:'
-We'll sort out sticky buns later, Philip.
-I'll hold you to that, mate.
'Next, it's the eclectic mix of books.
'Phil's standing by, ready to pounce.'
At £115, bid's on my left at 115...
'That's Phil's final Showdown item done,
'and probably in need of dusting.
'Auction fees mean that the 60 books cost him:'
That's what I really bought it for - Look and Learn Spanish!
'Across the saleroom, Mr Morecambe has everything to play for.
'As the auctioneers swap over, he's planning a punt
'on an oil painting by an unlisted artist.'
It's quite competently done. Late 19th century, nicely presented.
If it's £40 or £50, why not? It's a bargain.
50 to start me.
40, I have.
40, I have. 40, I have. 40, I have.
55. 58. 60. 60, I'm out.
£60. Sounds like that's the last bid he's got. I think I've got this.
I'm selling, then, at £60...
£60 plus a bit of commission. I bought myself a seascape.
'The commission takes the cost of the canvas up to:
'Even though Paul can't immediately find out about the artist
The sign of a good painting is if the artist can capture light.
The light coming through the clouds here,
that's really difficult to produce.
'And it's a case of painting by numbers for Mr Morecambe.
'His second and final lot is two Chinese pictures for:'
I love these Chinese paintings that are done on rice paper.
They date from the 19th century. These show tea merchants.
Tea was extremely popular and a very valuable commodity to China.
They could do quite well.
'So our boys have run the gauntlet of buying
'and are armed with eight items.
'Which warrior has the winning way?
'Our duelling duo both started out with £1,000 of their own money.
'Phil, the Fox, played steady with his readies...
'..Paul, Mr Morecambe, Hayes forked out a lot more...
'..Will that result in greater profit for Paul?
'Or has Philip bought more wisely? Only time will tell.'
What's been your favourite items?
I love my buffet. It's English and I bought it in France.
The Chinese vase, I'm going to whack into auction.
-It might be speculative.
-I do love the periscope.
-What's YOUR best bit?
-The best bit has to be those candlesticks.
They remind me of a French chateau, the whole Louis XV style.
-Is there anything that bothers you?
-Probably the cloisonne vase.
I'm not sure how old it is. It could be early 20th century, actually.
-May the best man win.
-And you, Philip.
-Can I buy you a cup of tea?
-You certainly can.
'So, the big question - which of our brutal Bravehearts IS the best man?
'This is no ordinary bargain battle.
'It's antiques armageddon!
'Not only do our demon dealers have to find buys for their items,
'the Showdown sell-off has a tricky little twist - the auction.
'They put half their items under the hammer and stand back and watch,
'as they rake in the readies or lose everything they've worked for.
'The only way to avoid total and unrelenting humiliation
'is to plan the ultimate strategy to ensure the cash comes rolling in.
'In Lancashire, Mr Morecambe has picked which items he fancies selling himself.'
At the antiques fair, I got this model of the Cutty Sark.
At the car boot sale, I think one of my favourite buys, actually,
this fantastic Indian table.
This was in poor condition. I've restored it.
I have a piece of glass on order, which I'm picking up any minute. It will finish off that table great.
The copperware, which came from HMS Foudroyant,
I'm definitely going to be able to sell those somewhere.
These Chinese tea-drinking scenes, which, again, are very unusual.
'So his auction armoury now contains the cloisonne vase,
'the pair of candelabra, the oil seascape
'and his watercolours.
'The Fox is, himself, an auctioneer, so he has an instant advantage.
'Which of his purchases are heading to the saleroom?'
I'm really pleased with my Showdown items.
These shelves and the periscope, I bought in England.
The shelves, I'm going to try and sell privately.
The periscope I'll put into auction.
At the foreign market, I bought this buffet, which folds into a table
and the boots, and those are going into auction.
I bought the cricket bat, which I'm going to sell privately.
And the Chinese vase - that's a real auction lot. Fingers crossed.
'Phil must also find buyers for the mirror and all those books.
'The plans are in place.
'Let's get selling - and be warned,
'this is NOT for the faint-hearted.
'Mr Morecambe is first off the blocks.
'He's been working on his Indian table, re-staining it,
'tightening the legs and paying for a new glass top from his kitty.
'It hasn't come cheap.
'The table now stands at almost £188.
'He's brought it to an Indian restaurant in Lancaster to meet owner Naim.'
-Three, two, one...
-Go for it.
-Do you like that?
That is beautiful!
-Isn't that amazing?
-It does go with the decor.
-It absolutely does.
I know you have some screens and these pillars.
There's a lovely space.
We could use it as a wall hanging, but you've put a lot of hours in.
Should I chop the legs off, take the glass off? We can minus the price.
All that hard work?
Or we could keep it like this and make it as a... Yeah, yeah.
-Let's see what we can do.
-If I was to ask you £250...
-That's what it's cost me.
-I have to give you a bit more.
Why don't I say 230?
I'm delighted for you to have it. Let's do the deal on that.
'He's off to a sprint.
'The table brings him a solid starting profit of:
'But Phil's just stepped up to the crease
'with the ivory cricket bat he bought for £15.
'He's in Worcester at the County Cricket Club,
'to meet Damian and Brett, the son and grandson of the late great
'Worcestershire and England all-rounder Basil D'Oliveira.
'They both followed in his footsteps at county level.
'This family knows a thing or two about cricket.'
-What would a bat cost you today?
-You would not get a lot of change out of 250 quid.
-You might today!
-"You might today?"
If we're lucky!
I've heard that two bat companies
-are bringing out the first £1,000 bat.
-A £1,000 bat?
Let me say to you, I can do this for less than £1,000.
I'd like to get 50 quid for that. What do you reckon?
I'd give you 25, Phil.
-Do you know...?
-I love that clinical cold...
You've got to do better than that. Try a bit harder.
-Is that your best?
-Go on, then.
-We'll declare and have tea, now.
'Yes, Brett takes the wicket but Phil takes his first profit of:
'Whilst he's in Worcester,
'the Fox takes his Chinese style cabinet to an antiques dealer
'who's new in town.
'Rene buys the shelves for £80...
'..Our boys are pretty much level pegging, but in a game as fast as this, that won't last.
'Mr Morecambe shows his mettle
'with with the copperware from Nelson's HMS Foudroyant.
'He's selling the four pieces separately.
'His first stop is Blackpool, where the ship was broken up.
'He meets John at the football club,
'which is home to part of the ship already.'
This is from our old boardroom.
-This came from the ship itself.
Just think, this dates from the early part of the 18th century.
Nelson could have been sat at his desk with this panel behind him.
Apparently, the Foudroyant is where he met Lady Hamilton.
I thought wouldn't it be wonderful to have some of the copperware?
It's all engraved.
It says, "Nelson's flagship, the Foudroyant".
Then it says quite clearly
it was launched in Plymouth in 1798,
but then got wrecked in Blackpool in 1897.
If I asked £80 for that, does that fit in with your budget?
It's a bit extreme for us!
I think I'll offer you 60.
60 quid? You couldn't make it £70?
-I'd love you to have it.
-Go on, then. Go with 70.
'Paul also finds new homes for the copper jardiniere, the tankard
'and the candle holder.
'He sells all four pieces for a combined total of £252.50.
'Sinking a handsome profit of:
'That puts Paul out in front, but Phil shows no sign of shrinking away.
'He's brought the books, which he bought at auction for £132,
'to lawyer David, in the hope that the subject matter appeals to him.'
They cover a number of my special interests.
The desert, the travel,
and a couple of interesting books about Asia and South Pacific.
So, struck a few chords here, my friend.
I was going to try and get as close to, sort of,
£230, £240 as I could.
I can understand that. You've got a collection of 60 books,
covering around a series of topics, many of them very interesting.
How about 200 as a nice round figure?
-Can we do business on that?
-We can. You're a gentleman.
'Phil storms back into the game.
'The books make a profit of:
'And Phil also makes quick work of his other auction purchase,
'the gilt-framed mirror.
'He sells it for £22, making a tidy profit of:
'But Mr Morecambe keeps on pushing for the big prize.
'He takes his Cutty Sark to a model shop in Lancaster.
'He sells it to Andy for £130,
'and sails off with a profit of:
'Whilst he's in Lancaster, Paul heads to a tea merchant
'to try and sell his Chinese tea paintings.
'The shop has been trading in the city for 175 years
'and already has a collection of tea-related memorabilia.
'Paul meets current owner, Ian.'
These are Chinese silk paintings from the 19th century.
They depict tea merchants, very similar to yourself.
From the style of clothing and of the picture themselves,
I'd put these in the Ming dynasty so you're looking at the 17th century.
If I was to ask you £70 for them,
are we in the right region?
-Would they be something you'd like?
I'd like to have them for the story-telling value.
-Shall we shake on that?
-Shall we haggle first?
-It's up to you.
-No, that's fine.
-Is that all right?
-Thank you for thinking of me.
'A little "tease" there from Ian, but the pictures are just his cuppa,
'and Paul makes a profit of:
'At the halfway stage of this tricky trading tournament,
'how are our warring warriors getting on?
'Phil, the Fox, has sold four of his items and made a profit of:
'Paul, Mr Morecambe, Hayes has also got rid of four purchases,
'but he's ahead in the profit stakes.
'But this is where the wheeler-dealing ends.
'Everything else must be sold at the Showdown auction,
'where our boys have absolutely no control over what happens.
'To increase the tension, there's no reserve prices.
'They're at the saleroom in Market Harborough in Leicestershire.
'Our collectables kings check out each other's lots.'
That marine that Paul's bought
is quite interesting, but he has taken a risk.
Cos he's bought that and that pair of watercolours.
If there's anything that's been hit in the art market,
it's that type of work from the 19th century.
I must admit, I think Phil did really well spotting this table.
I didn't realise it was metamorphic. It's been well presented here.
For £200, I think that's a bargain.
Paul's Chinese pot, he didn't pay much for it. I don't see how he can lose.
But I'm probably older than that!
Remember these wonderful candelabra?
I had a chat to the auctioneer. He's had three people interested.
Might just give me the edge over Mr Philip Serrell. I think these are the star lot of the entire auction.
I really love that trench periscope.
It's not what it is, it's what it stands for. It's so poignant.
I don't know what it'll make, but I hope it'll pop up above the trenches and see a few bidders.
This is the item that could surprise us.
This Chinese market at the moment has gone mad.
Is it 19th century? Is it 18th century? Is it Ming, Qing?
Is it ker-ching? Who knows?
'Well, let's find out.
'The vase is the first of Phil's lots to go under the hammer.
'But our own resident auctioneer is starting to feel the nerves.'
I'm getting really quite nervous. I'm getting that dry mouth feel.
I know, but it's a buzz, isn't it?
'Phil spent £80 on the vase.'
-£30 opening bid.
-I'm bid at 30. 35. 40.
-There we go.
£40 bid now. £40. Five in the room. At 45.
50, new bidder.
Your turn this time, at £50.
-It's creeping up.
It's got to creep a bit more!
-No, it's all right, mate.
You're both out in the room? Selling at £60...
-That's a loss of roughly 30 quid, isn't it?
-No. It's more, isn't it?
'Sadly, Paul's right.
'With all the costs included, Phil's loss hits:'
I don't claim to be an expert in Chinese ceramics and I just proved that to all watching!
'Let's hope Mr Morecambe doesn't go the same way with his first item,
'the cloisonne vase he paid nearly £23 for.'
-What's it going to make?
-I reckon it'll make £45.
-£50, I'm opening at.
-There you are! 50 quid!
-No, he hasn't got it yet.
-£50. I'm five. 60.
-Oh, here we go!
-£60, I'm bid.
-You're flying away!
-Well done, you!
-Away, then, at £85...
-Well done, you!
'The cloisonne does the business! After the fees, that's a profit of:'
-I'm delighted with that.
-That's a top result.
'So far, nothing has panned out the way our experts predicted.
'It's an unsettling feeling.'
Very dry feeling in the back of my mouth.
'Lovely(!) Foxy does make some money with his next lot, but only just.'
I'm selling at 80...
'The First World War periscope makes a teeny tiny profit of:'
-It's my boots next.
-I've never handled anything like this before...
Pleased to hear it.
'Phil bought his booties in France for a little over £45.'
-A lot of interest in these.
-Oh, a lot of interest.
-20. Five. 30.
-£30, I'm bid now. £30.
-I think I'm going to get £55.
Five. 50. Five. 60.
-That's a little bit of profit.
-70, I'm bid. Internet.
Internet's coming in. 75.
To the internet at £75...
'The boots give Phil a much-needed leg-up. They make a profit of:'
-A massive relief, let me tell you!
'Yes, the Fox shouldn't worry yet. He may only have one item left,
'but it's a goodie - the metamorphic table.
'First, it's Paul's star lot,
'the ormolu candelabra he bought for £236.'
If these are right and the interest is there, they could do 400, 500.
If it isn't, they could do four or five quid!
-Good-looking pair of candelabra!
-Good-looking pair - me and you.
30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90,
'The bidding stalls, but then the auctioneer looks at his screen to see the internet bids.'
110, 120, 130. 140, 150.
Come on! It's well out, yet.
-200, new bidder.
-That's what's helped!
Well done, matey. Well done.
-He's breaking my arm here!
My bids are out. At 360, we're with the telephone. You're out.
No-one else in the room, then, and selling at £360...
I'm really pleased for you, but just one thing. You've broken my arm.
BOTH LAUGH Let me prise me fingers off you!
Is there a bit of flesh left?
'Paul's judgment was right.
'Once the costs are counted, the candelabra lights up his life
'with a profit of:'
-The telephone bidder would have carried on.
-I've never been so excited to earn 50 quid.
-My arm knows!
'Paul is onto a winner with his next item.'
To the internet at 140...
'The marine oil painting makes £140,
'earning Mr Morecambe a profit of:
'There's more of Paul's pictures to come.
'The two watercolours are his next lot. They cost him £55.'
£40, I'm bid for the pair. 45. 50.
-Five, 60. Five, 70.
-70. Five. 80.
-I'm so relieved to get 80 quid.
-You've done really well.
-I'm going to shake you by the hand.
'And the watercolours paint another beautiful picture for Mr Morecambe.
'A profit of:'
I'm so pleased to be on the Paul Hayes Show.
-Thank you so much(!)
-Keep trying, mate.
-You've only been at it 30 years!
-I'll start the car.
'No, come back, Foxy. There's still your metamorphic table.
'It could change the entire course of events.
'Phil paid just over £218.
'With selling fees, the table needs to make £275 just to break even.'
I don't want to do this!
-When I bought this, I was convinced it was £300 to £500.
As time's gone by, every shred of confidence has been ripped from me!
-£200, do I see? 150, I'm bid.
-150, we're in.
160. 170. 180.
-180. £180, I'm bid.
-That really is for nothing.
-That is for nothing, isn't it?
-Absolutely for nothing.
'A world of frustration for Mr Fox!
'The table makes an enormous loss.'
On a different day, you'd have got your money.
I'm just going to let his tyres down.
Nothing like a sore loser, is there?
'The sun has set on a stonking Showdown,
'and what a rip-roaring romp through the rarities it's been!
'Both our bad boys started with...
'..Including the costs of renovating his Indian table...
'..All the money that Paul and Phil have made will be going to charity.
'Without further ado, it's time to find out who is today's
'Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is champion!'
-Good morning, Philip.
-How are you?
-Welcome to my country estate.
-What a great place.
-So, how'd it go for you?
Talking of fantastic! That auction for me was a real winner!
I made a profit on every item I put into the sale.
-Well, I didn't!
-I noticed that!
My metamorphic table metamorphed into a thundering great loss!
My concern is how many numbers I've got either side of the decimal place.
-Now you know how it feels!
-One, two, three...!
Look at that! ..DON'T look at that!
That, in the trade, is what they call a thundering great victory.
'Mm, the Fox well and truly trounced by the blue-eyed golden boy.
'But our experts have been building their profit stash all week.
'So, let's find out how much they've made in total.'
-Shall we see how we panned out?
-Three, two, one... Go!
-Look at that!
-We know who the real winner is!
I tell you one thing, having seen you perform at the auction,
I'm having you as my art consultant. Come and look at this painting...
'An overall win for the Fox, and that money will go to Phil and Paul's chosen charities.'
The Worcestershire Acute Hospital's NHS Trust charitable fund is my chosen charity.
I've chosen it in memory of Jo Lamb, a school friend of my daughter's
who recently lost her fight against cancer.
My chosen charity is close to my heart.
It's the Galloway's Society for the Blind.
'It's been a week of no-holds barred combat.
'Our experts really put their money where their mouths are
'and showed they can make a profit buying and selling antiques
'when their own money is on the line.'
