MUSIC: Theme From Star Wars

0:00:020:00:04

Well, really, chaps.

0:00:130:00:15

There is a rather more civilised way of sorting this out.

0:00:150:00:18

Let's try Bargain Hunting.

0:00:180:00:21

Welcome from Ardingly Antiques Fair at the South of England Showground.

0:00:460:00:51

There's plenty to look forward to on today's programme.

0:00:510:00:54

It's a race against the clock for the Blues...

0:00:540:00:57

Wait for me.

0:00:570:01:00

..while the Reds use their charms to bring the prices down.

0:01:000:01:03

I feel I must take them away from you!

0:01:030:01:06

But how will their items perform over at the auction?

0:01:060:01:11

Bargain Hunt is pretty straight-laced.

0:01:110:01:14

It's the Reds versus the Blues -

0:01:140:01:17

a bit like good versus evil.

0:01:170:01:20

But it's not entirely purgatory,

0:01:200:01:22

because the teams will be helped by their saintly expert,

0:01:220:01:27

whose job it is to guide them towards three items for £300

0:01:270:01:33

and the team that maketh the most profit

0:01:330:01:36

will not necessarily benefit in heaven.

0:01:360:01:40

Today we've got the gorgeous girls versus the lovable lads.

0:01:460:01:50

-For the Reds, we've got Becky and Georgina, sisters.

-Hiya.

0:01:500:01:55

-Yes. Hello.

-And Bramwell and Stuart, best mates, for the Blues.

-Indeed.

0:01:550:01:59

"Indeed," he says. Good. Now, Becky, you're a dancer.

0:01:590:02:02

What are the highlights of your career so far?

0:02:020:02:05

I'd say, probably, I've danced with the English Youth Ballet

0:02:050:02:09

when I was younger, so that was a good experience.

0:02:090:02:11

And probably getting my teaching qualifications so I'm able to teach dance to children.

0:02:110:02:16

-Tap?

-Yep. Ballet. Modern.

-The whole thing.

0:02:160:02:19

-Yep.

-And when you're not teaching others, what do you get up to?

0:02:190:02:23

I've just finished a part-time acting course, which was really good.

0:02:230:02:26

-We got to perform a play in central London.

-Yes.

0:02:260:02:29

-So that was really good.

-Will we have any dramatics from you today on Bargain Hunt?

0:02:290:02:33

-I don't think so.

-Oh, I don't know. That would be nice.

0:02:330:02:38

And are you interested in antiques?

0:02:380:02:39

Oh, yeah. We both love antiques, don't we?

0:02:390:02:41

-Always loved them.

-We're hopefully looking for some nice silver or something.

0:02:410:02:45

-A nice piece of jewellery or something.

-Gosh.

0:02:450:02:47

They've got their eye in already.

0:02:470:02:49

How brilliant. Georgina, what do you do, darling?

0:02:490:02:51

I'm still at college, studying childcare, so love children, love working with them.

0:02:510:02:57

So about to finish that and hopefully be a nanny when I'm older.

0:02:570:03:00

-You've got a bit of a travel bug too, haven't you?

-I have. I love travelling.

0:03:000:03:03

I love finding new places, so going to Australia this year.

0:03:030:03:06

-Yeah.

-Saving up.

-Trying to save.

-You're going with your sister.

0:03:060:03:09

-Yeah.

-Oh, it's a duo.

0:03:090:03:10

You really are a tight team, aren't you? I think these boys had better watch out.

0:03:100:03:15

-Now, Bramwell.

-Hi.

0:03:150:03:17

-Are you a collector of anything in particular, Bramwell?

-Yeah.

0:03:170:03:20

I'm a great big fan of Star Wars. It's my love.

0:03:200:03:23

I've loved it all my life. I used to collect when I was younger.

0:03:230:03:27

And unfortunately, a few years back, I sold it all off

0:03:270:03:31

and now I'm trying to rekindle my youth

0:03:310:03:33

and I buy Star Wars vintage figures,

0:03:330:03:36

send them off, get them authenticated and try and make a bit of money.

0:03:360:03:40

Oh, do you? So there's money to be made out of this.

0:03:400:03:43

How does your wife cope with your growing collection, then, Bramwell?

0:03:430:03:47

Well, she doesn't really get much choice because of the passion for Star Wars that I have.

0:03:470:03:51

-We even had a Star Wars wedding.

-So you went as Star Wars characters, did you?

0:03:510:03:56

-Yeah. Myself, I went as Han Solo.

-Oh, yeah.

-Dashing as he is.

-Yeah.

0:03:560:04:01

-And my wife went as Princess Leia.

-Naturally.

0:04:010:04:04

And we had 50 guests at the registry office.

0:04:040:04:07

-Everybody in full Star Wars regalia.

-What, the whole lot?

0:04:070:04:11

Yeah, including Nanny Joyce and Tamzin's granddad and grandma -

0:04:110:04:15

they came, 91, 92, but still made a great effort.

0:04:150:04:18

-Oh, how brilliant.

-Fantastic.

-So, Stuart, you're musical too?

0:04:180:04:22

You could say that. Yeah.

0:04:220:04:25

Myself and a few friends, we started a boy band back in the sort of late '90s,

0:04:250:04:30

which started off as a bit of a joke

0:04:300:04:32

but we ended up progressing and touring up and down the country.

0:04:320:04:36

-What was your band called?

-It was Four Sure.

0:04:360:04:38

Four Sure. That's a very good name.

0:04:380:04:39

Not Sure now, really!

0:04:390:04:42

You're not sure that it was Four Sure, but you did it anyway.

0:04:420:04:45

We had a great time.

0:04:450:04:46

We were out there touring for about two, three years, by the time we got out of the studio.

0:04:460:04:51

Really? I understand you also organise great parties.

0:04:510:04:54

Last year, myself and Bramwell decided to celebrate our 32nd and 33rd birthdays

0:04:540:05:00

with a big kids' party for us all, all of our friends, at one of my bars

0:05:000:05:04

and it was our take on what we used to do as young children, shall we say,

0:05:040:05:10

so we had musical chairs, musical statues, Simon says,

0:05:100:05:12

dancing competitions and everything.

0:05:120:05:15

We don't want you to be too grown-up today,

0:05:150:05:17

cos the grown-up moment now is the £300 moment.

0:05:170:05:21

-Ready, girls?

-Yeah.

-Look at these expectant faces here.

0:05:210:05:24

£300 apiece. There you go, boys.

0:05:240:05:25

You know the rules, your experts await and off you go. And very, very, very good luck.

0:05:250:05:31

Well, I wonder which team the force will be with today.

0:05:310:05:35

So, our teams have just one hour to find three items here at Ardingly.

0:05:370:05:41

They'll then sell these on at auction in Chiswick with the aim of making a profit.

0:05:410:05:46

This is a tall order so they're going to need some professional help. Cue the experts.

0:05:460:05:51

The Reds are in the capable hands of Anita Manning.

0:05:510:05:55

And keeping the Blues for you is Catherine Southon.

0:05:550:06:00

-Come on.

-Go.

0:06:010:06:03

Let's go.

0:06:030:06:04

Have you got any nice wee kind of quirky silver pieces here?

0:06:060:06:10

We have. What about a christening mug?

0:06:100:06:13

-40 quid.

-That's quite sweet.

0:06:130:06:14

I mean, that's a possibility, girls, but not at 40 quid. Maybe 20 quid.

0:06:140:06:18

The thing is, because of the price of scrap, which is £8 an ounce, you'll find...

0:06:180:06:26

..that that's four ounces.

0:06:270:06:29

The scrap is £32.

0:06:290:06:32

OK. Could you do it for 20?

0:06:320:06:34

Listen, I can do it for 35 quid.

0:06:340:06:36

And if you can't get a profit on it, I'll buy it back off you for 32.

0:06:360:06:41

-He's got the patter, hasn't he?

-Honestly, it does scrap at £32.

0:06:410:06:48

OK.

0:06:480:06:49

So you're paying £3 over scrap.

0:06:490:06:52

But if it's getting sold at auction, we've got to think of buyers' premium and passing on stuff.

0:06:520:06:57

See these girls - these girls are wonderful girls

0:06:570:07:01

and they've come hundreds of miles to be the winners of Bargain Hunt.

0:07:010:07:05

Their beauty overwhelms me.

0:07:050:07:06

I feel I must take them away from you! Pleased to meet you.

0:07:060:07:11

Can you not do it for 25 quid?

0:07:110:07:13

-After all that...

-Oh, go on. Girls. Girls.

0:07:130:07:17

-You have to now. Come on.

-25. 25.

0:07:170:07:21

I tell you what... £30, you bought it and that's a good deal.

0:07:210:07:24

-TIM:

-That was impressive, girls. First stall, first item and all in ten minutes.

0:07:240:07:29

Look at that set.

0:07:290:07:31

The price is 115.

0:07:330:07:36

Got no chance of profit.

0:07:360:07:37

No. We're not going to make a profit on that.

0:07:370:07:40

-Where's the lady?

-Beautiful quality.

0:07:400:07:42

Gorgeous, that is.

0:07:420:07:43

-I could do 90 for it.

-90.

-Yeah.

0:07:430:07:47

We really need to get it for about £50 or £60 cos it's our last buy.

0:07:470:07:51

Cheeky, Bramwell! You've just started shopping.

0:07:510:07:55

Cost you NEARLY that? So you need to make some money for some tea.

0:07:550:07:59

-Not a lot.

-How about we start at 50 and you knock me up to £60?

0:07:590:08:03

You can have it for 75.

0:08:030:08:05

-75.

-Yeah.

0:08:050:08:07

That's my best price.

0:08:070:08:09

Let me get involved in this as well. Come on.

0:08:090:08:12

I'm just... My thinking of this at auction...

0:08:120:08:15

-It's £60.

-Yeah.

0:08:150:08:17

I'm on the fence at that money, mate, to be honest.

0:08:170:08:19

-It is a risk. I think it's a gamble.

-I think it's a definite saver.

0:08:190:08:23

-Thank you very much for your time. You've been wonderful.

-Thank you.

0:08:230:08:26

Not happy with the price, they move on, but they don't appear to have gone very far.

0:08:260:08:31

A lovely big piece of tortoiseshell there with no cracks, no damage.

0:08:310:08:36

That is lovely. Nice initials there.

0:08:360:08:38

-What can it actually be used for?

-Put your rings in there.

0:08:380:08:44

Jewellery box. Necklaces and stuff.

0:08:440:08:46

Yeah. I think, probably, it would have had a necklace in there once.

0:08:460:08:49

-Hallmarked on the hinges.

-Auction estimate?

-Auction estimate 100-150.

0:08:490:08:55

-220 is too high. Let's keep looking.

-OK.

0:08:550:08:58

Keep looking.

0:08:580:08:59

Mmm. There's plenty of looking going on, but not a lot of buying.

0:08:590:09:03

Keep an eye on the clock, guys. Before you know it, you'll have run out of time.

0:09:030:09:07

Now, we like to add a little twist to the programme, and it is called the bonus buy.

0:09:090:09:15

What happens is, after the shopping, any leftover lolly, or cash,

0:09:150:09:20

is given to the expert to go and find that secret bonus buy,

0:09:200:09:24

which is revealed to the teams at the auction

0:09:240:09:27

and they decide whether to take it or not.

0:09:270:09:29

If the expert's done a decent job, it'll bring a handsome profit, which will be added to the team's total.

0:09:290:09:35

If he's done a lousy job, well, it could just be a dead loss.

0:09:350:09:40

Our teams only have half an hour left.

0:09:400:09:43

Surely by now the Blues have bought their first item?

0:09:430:09:46

-What is it about you guys and spoons?

-Where are we going?

0:09:470:09:52

Oh, I like this.

0:09:540:09:56

Now, this...that's unusual. It's supposed to be one of those...curling stones.

0:09:560:10:01

That's fantastic.

0:10:010:10:03

-It's a little inkwell.

-Yeah.

0:10:030:10:05

I like that. What about this, Bram?

0:10:050:10:06

-Yeah. I like it. It's unusual.

-Isn't it?

0:10:060:10:09

But I can see that at £30-£40 maybe doing quite well.

0:10:090:10:13

He wants 35 for it. I mean, I wouldn't say it's fantastically made, but it's an unusual piece.

0:10:130:10:20

-How many of those do you see?

-Never.

0:10:200:10:22

-How many spoons do you see?

-I'm tired of seeing spoons.

0:10:220:10:25

With the spoons again! I love them.

0:10:250:10:27

-I need you to try and get it down to around... I'm thinking £15, £20.

-OK.

0:10:270:10:33

-Can you do that?

-I know a man that can make that happen.

0:10:330:10:35

-I know a man who can.

-Let's go.

-Get in there, Brammy.

0:10:350:10:39

With Bramwell left to negotiate, they get the price down to £18.

0:10:390:10:44

Right, guys, pick up the pace.

0:10:440:10:47

Take my word for it - 25 minutes to find two items isn't long.

0:10:470:10:51

What is it? Just a pendant?

0:10:510:10:53

It's a locket and you would have been able to put a photograph of your loved one in there.

0:10:530:11:01

It can be worn. It's not over-extravagant.

0:11:010:11:06

-It's quite simple but it has the lovely detail of seed pearls.

-Yeah.

0:11:060:11:11

-And I like seed pearls, but that's a personal thing.

-Yeah.

0:11:110:11:15

Can you tell me what you think?

0:11:150:11:16

I mean, it's really pretty.

0:11:190:11:21

You're not going to see something like this anywhere.

0:11:210:11:23

I love the thought that you could put a picture in it.

0:11:230:11:26

I think that's really different.

0:11:260:11:27

-Yeah, cos you don't often see an open locket.

-No. I've never seen one.

0:11:270:11:31

-OK.

-I love lockets and that is a different locket.

-Yeah.

0:11:310:11:34

Yeah. OK, girls. This brooch here, how much is that one?

0:11:340:11:37

Actually, you can have that for a very good price cos I bought it very well.

0:11:370:11:41

I bought that this morning.

0:11:410:11:42

That can be 45. It's an oil painting.

0:11:420:11:47

It's Victorian.

0:11:470:11:48

Yes. It's very unusual.

0:11:480:11:50

What do you think about that one?

0:11:500:11:52

This is very different as well. An oil painting inside a brooch.

0:11:520:11:55

-I've never seen that before.

-No.

0:11:550:11:58

Obviously, the detail in that is amazing cos of how small it is.

0:11:580:12:02

-This is a little Victorian brooch.

-Lovely.

0:12:020:12:06

So it's a little earlier than that one.

0:12:060:12:11

So tell me, which one do you prefer?

0:12:110:12:14

-I'm more attracted to this one.

-I am, I think.

-You both like that.

0:12:140:12:17

-Yeah.

-I do. It's growing on me.

0:12:170:12:19

Growing or not, the girls said they wanted some jewellery and the pendant was theirs for £70.

0:12:210:12:26

So our Red team is sitting pretty with two items bagged and £200 left.

0:12:260:12:32

Now, I know what I'd spend MY money on.

0:12:320:12:35

This is an object made by rather a famous Victorian maker.

0:12:350:12:40

If we look on the back of this mount, you can see the initials SM.

0:12:400:12:44

SM stands for Sampson Mordan.

0:12:440:12:48

This object is a little bottle, a scent bottle, and it's got one or two unusual features.

0:12:480:12:55

The first thing is its colour.

0:12:550:12:57

This glass section is called cranberry glass

0:12:570:13:00

and it's a particularly sought-after colour when it comes to scent bottles.

0:13:000:13:05

If you look at the top, it's got a little button under the cover and if I press that...

0:13:050:13:11

oh, you can see it springs up.

0:13:110:13:13

There's no cork and you don't want to spill anything.

0:13:130:13:18

The secret is in Sampson Mordan's patented sprung cap.

0:13:180:13:23

See, it's got a sheet of glass inside and when I come to shut it,

0:13:230:13:28

the top sheet of glass closes extremely snugly against the glass

0:13:280:13:33

on the top of the scent bottle,

0:13:330:13:35

making it completely waterproof, which is extremely clever.

0:13:350:13:39

If you turn to the other end, there's a kind of boxlike structure.

0:13:390:13:43

It's got a hinged top.

0:13:430:13:46

If I hinge that open, it reveals a little pierced grill

0:13:460:13:50

and the well underneath was designed to take a little sponge.

0:13:500:13:54

That sponge would be soaked in vinegar

0:13:540:13:57

or a strong-smelling salt solution

0:13:570:14:00

and the whole thing is shut up like this.

0:14:000:14:02

And the idea of this box on the end of the perfume bottle was...seriously bad smell about,

0:14:020:14:08

open this up, stick the vinaigrette bit under your hooter and inhale

0:14:080:14:14

and that way, you'd inhale the smell on the sponge

0:14:140:14:18

rather than the terrible stink in the street.

0:14:180:14:21

Hmm! Good fun, hey?

0:14:210:14:24

And I found it for £280.

0:14:240:14:26

Is there a smell about?

0:14:260:14:28

I don't think so.

0:14:280:14:30

Let's see how those Blues are getting on.

0:14:320:14:35

With 20 minutes to go and a whopping £282 still to spend,

0:14:350:14:40

they should be buying rather than quibbling over a few pounds.

0:14:400:14:44

I love the handle of this magnifier.

0:14:440:14:46

That's all ivory. Isn't that lovely? Beautifully carved.

0:14:460:14:49

-Let's just have a look.

-And this is gilt?

0:14:490:14:52

Yeah. This is gilt metal.

0:14:520:14:54

-And this...different colour.

-I am a bit concerned. Yeah. Absolutely.

0:14:540:14:59

I don't think that those two are the same. It looks slightly made up.

0:14:590:15:04

Very high price.

0:15:040:15:06

-And your best?

-What's it marked at?

0:15:060:15:09

-55.

-75!

-That's a five, is it? 55.

0:15:090:15:13

Got your hands full today!

0:15:130:15:14

You've got to give it to him for trying!

0:15:140:15:17

-Come on. Best price. Best price.

-I'll give you a good deal on it.

-OK.

0:15:170:15:21

55. As you said, 55.

0:15:210:15:23

That's the price we were going to start at.

0:15:230:15:25

And you know I'm going to come up from about 35 to 40.

0:15:250:15:29

It is a nice thing.

0:15:290:15:30

-What auction price?

-I quite like that.

0:15:300:15:33

-I think that's quite nice quality.

-Yeah.

0:15:330:15:35

-But...

-We need to get the price down so we can sell at auction.

0:15:350:15:38

I like the sort of flowering head around.

0:15:380:15:40

He's not interested in the item. He doesn't care about anything.

0:15:400:15:43

All he wants to do is make a profit.

0:15:430:15:45

That might be the name of the game,

0:15:450:15:47

but Bramwell seems hell-bent on getting the biggest reductions possible.

0:15:470:15:52

With 15 minutes left on the clock and only one item bought,

0:15:520:15:56

the Blues have got some serious work to do.

0:15:560:15:59

Over in the Red camp, it looks like their work is almost done.

0:16:000:16:04

Well, it's all there. We have the teapot.

0:16:040:16:06

-Yeah.

-We have the sugar.

0:16:060:16:09

We have the cream and we have two little cups and saucers on a tray.

0:16:090:16:13

-Oh, it's lovely.

-It's really pretty.

0:16:130:16:15

-It is sweet.

-I think it is. The colours are good, too.

0:16:150:16:18

-Could we have a wee closer look at it?

-Yeah.

0:16:180:16:20

Now, we have these little scenes on here.

0:16:200:16:24

A young swain serenading his beautiful maiden.

0:16:240:16:29

But when we look at the back stamp here,

0:16:290:16:32

we see that it's made by Limoges, which was a good factory,

0:16:320:16:36

so we've got a wee bit of quality there, girls.

0:16:360:16:39

-That's good.

-A wee bit of quality.

0:16:390:16:41

Now, it's not early.

0:16:410:16:42

It's probably from the 1950s, '60s and it is a traditional thing,

0:16:420:16:48

-but that's not going to detract from its charm.

-Yeah. Definitely.

0:16:480:16:56

Tell me, what drew your eye to it first?

0:16:560:16:59

I wasn't sure what it was at first,

0:16:590:17:01

but obviously it's a toy thing, which I think makes it really sweet.

0:17:010:17:05

-Definitely.

-Like you said, it's got charm, hasn't it?

0:17:050:17:08

Are you in agreement with your sister?

0:17:080:17:11

Could the two of you sit and have a wee cup of tea?

0:17:110:17:13

-Shall we have a tea party?

-Yeah.

0:17:130:17:15

Whilst it's all smiles and jokes for the Reds,

0:17:150:17:18

it's tension and stress for the Blues.

0:17:180:17:21

With the pressure mounting, Bramwell makes a quick dash for the green enamel grooming set.

0:17:210:17:26

-Good price.

-Go. Go. Go.

0:17:260:17:28

Come on. Let's go and see if we can find something.

0:17:280:17:31

Let's go and have a wee cup of tea.

0:17:350:17:39

-I think we deserve it.

-Yes.

-Definitely.

0:17:390:17:42

Happy with the price at £15, the Reds are done and dusted.

0:17:420:17:47

But for the Blues, things are going from bad to worse.

0:17:470:17:50

-It's gone.

-You're joking.

0:17:500:17:52

And for more than we were going to pay.

0:17:520:17:54

Oh, no. I can't believe it.

0:17:540:17:55

If I didn't have bad luck, I'd have no luck at all.

0:17:550:17:58

What did she say?

0:17:580:17:59

She just said, "I sold it, and for more than you were offering."

0:17:590:18:02

-Oh, no.

-Quality item. I knew we should have got it.

0:18:020:18:04

I can't believe it.

0:18:040:18:06

It was quality but then... but, but, but...

0:18:060:18:09

It wasn't a complete set, so come on, it's not the end of the day.

0:18:090:18:12

-We've still got time.

-OK.

0:18:120:18:14

-Shall we go back in?

-Yeah.

-Look at the other things she had?

0:18:140:18:17

As the Reds stroll back, it's panic stations for the Blues.

0:18:170:18:21

Catherine has really got her work cut out.

0:18:210:18:24

There's just ten minutes remaining and still two items to buy.

0:18:240:18:27

It's kind of vintage. I like the motif on the front and it's hallmarked inside.

0:18:270:18:31

-It looks in quite good quality.

-Is that engraved in?

0:18:310:18:34

No. We've got some interlaced initials, which has actually been put on to the top of the box.

0:18:340:18:39

I've got the lady down to 160.

0:18:390:18:42

She said she's paid more than that at auction for them.

0:18:420:18:45

We're running out of time.

0:18:450:18:47

-We're running out of time. Do you like it?

-I like it. I'm in.

0:18:470:18:50

-How much did you say?

-160.

0:18:500:18:52

160. I can see it in auction at sort of 100-150.

0:18:520:18:56

-OK. We're in trouble, then.

-I think it's got character.

0:18:560:19:00

-Right. Come on. Let's decide.

-I'm still soul-destroyed. Let's go.

0:19:000:19:03

-Yeah?

-160.

0:19:030:19:05

-OK.

-Have another go at her, Brammy. See what you can get.

0:19:050:19:08

A little bit more. A little bit more.

0:19:080:19:10

Cor, that Bramwell isn't one to give up.

0:19:100:19:12

He always has to get the price down just a little bit more, and he did.

0:19:120:19:16

He made a massive saving of one whole pound!

0:19:160:19:20

Do I sense some tension in the air here?

0:19:200:19:25

-Oh, you do.

-We've had a slight malfunction on our buying.

0:19:250:19:28

So, how many pieces have you bought?

0:19:280:19:31

-Two.

-Two. Two?!

-And we had one slip through our fingers.

0:19:310:19:35

Oh, no. That's bad luck.

0:19:350:19:37

-Came to try and do the deal. £65.

-He's distraught.

0:19:370:19:40

-On the brush set.

-Yeah?

0:19:400:19:42

Came back...gone, for more money than we were going to pay.

0:19:420:19:45

There's a lesson to be learned. Anyway, you've got two items. That's great.

0:19:450:19:49

-I think we've actually bought the better piece.

-I'm mortified.

0:19:490:19:52

But you know what? You've got six minutes left.

0:19:520:19:54

-I know.

-You've only got six minutes.

0:19:540:19:56

-Can you help us?

-What are you doing here, hanging about?

0:19:560:19:59

You're our Obi-Wan. We need you.

0:19:590:20:01

You need me? You need HER.

0:20:010:20:03

-That's what. You need somebody.

-We need help!

0:20:030:20:05

-We need help.

-Then you'd better get on with it.

0:20:050:20:08

Time is just running away from the Blues.

0:20:080:20:11

Their frantic searching doesn't appear to have been successful

0:20:110:20:14

and now they've just one minute to buy their last item.

0:20:140:20:17

What are they going to do?

0:20:170:20:19

We're going to go back and get the thingy.

0:20:190:20:21

To me and you, that's the magnifying glass.

0:20:210:20:23

Five.

0:20:230:20:25

Four.

0:20:250:20:28

-Three.

-Come on!

0:20:280:20:29

-Two.

-I'm worried. I'm really worried.

0:20:290:20:32

-One.

-What have you done?

-We've bought it for £47.50.

0:20:320:20:35

-It's a gamble.

-Let me just check, Bramwell.

0:20:350:20:38

-It works.

-Definitely a bargain in there, Bramwell.

0:20:380:20:41

-That's it. Time's up.

-Well done, anyway.

0:20:410:20:45

-Well done, guys.

-I really think we need a cup of tea.

0:20:450:20:47

-Yeah. Let's go and get one.

-Or something a little bit stronger, maybe.

0:20:470:20:51

Phew. That was frantic.

0:20:510:20:52

Talk about cutting it fine.

0:20:520:20:54

Let's recap on what the Reds bought.

0:20:540:20:57

With the stallholder mesmerised, they managed to get a tenner off.

0:20:580:21:02

£30 paid.

0:21:020:21:04

The locket caught their eye and so did the price at £70.

0:21:040:21:08

The Limoges tea set was right up their street, at £15.

0:21:110:21:15

-So, girls, was that good or was it good?

-Yeah.

0:21:170:21:19

-Great.

-We had great fun, didn't we?

0:21:190:21:22

Well, there we go. I'm glad you did.

0:21:220:21:24

Now, which is your favourite piece, Becky?

0:21:240:21:27

-I think the locket with the pearls.

-What about you, Georgina?

0:21:270:21:33

I'd say the silver christening cup. It's different and hopefully it'll make the most profit.

0:21:330:21:38

Will that make the most profit?

0:21:380:21:39

-I really hope it does.

-I think so, as well.

0:21:390:21:42

You're going to go with your sister?

0:21:420:21:44

I think so. Fingers crossed on that one.

0:21:440:21:45

You spent £115. Not a lot.

0:21:450:21:48

I'd like to have £185 of leftover lolly to Anita.

0:21:480:21:51

-So what was it like, Anita, operating with the young ones?

-We had a wonderful time.

0:21:510:21:56

We had a marvellous girlie day shopping and generally having a good old time to ourselves.

0:21:560:22:04

Well, that was lovely. So what are you going to do with all that money, then?

0:22:040:22:07

Well, I've got my eye on a little piece of bling which I think might

0:22:070:22:12

-bring an even bigger smile on the girls' faces.

-If that's possible.

0:22:120:22:18

Anyway, Anita, you're just a great big kid yourself, so off you go and good luck.

0:22:180:22:23

Let's remind ourselves what the Blues bought.

0:22:230:22:26

After half an hour of knocking stallholders down,

0:22:260:22:30

the Blues finally managed to agree on a price

0:22:300:22:33

and bought their first item, for £18.

0:22:330:22:36

After much deliberation, Catherine and Stuart overruled Bramwell

0:22:370:22:41

and bought the tortoiseshell case for £159.

0:22:410:22:45

Even with seconds to go, Bramwell was determined

0:22:460:22:49

to get the magnifying glass a little bit cheaper.

0:22:490:22:51

He ran out of time, though, and had to settle with paying £47.50.

0:22:510:22:56

Cor, what a scramble it is with you lot!

0:22:580:23:00

-We went pretty close to the wire.

-Half a second to go!

0:23:000:23:04

-This is ridiculous.

-We don't mess around.

0:23:040:23:06

You had a good time, that's the main thing.

0:23:060:23:08

So, Bram, which is your favourite piece?

0:23:080:23:10

I like the quirky granite inkwell.

0:23:100:23:12

Do you? That's your favourite. What about you, Stuart?

0:23:120:23:14

I like the tortoiseshell jewellery box. I thought it was the classiest item.

0:23:140:23:19

-So that's your favourite?

-Yeah.

-Which piece will bring the biggest profit, do you think?

0:23:190:23:23

-I think the...

-Tortoiseshell.

0:23:230:23:25

-It's going to fly out.

-The tortoiseshell?

-Yeah.

0:23:250:23:27

You're agreed on the tortoiseshell for your prediction of most profit.

0:23:270:23:32

OK. Fine. You spent £224.50 which is a magnificent effort, I have to say.

0:23:320:23:38

Oddball number but I'll have £75.50's worth of leftover lolly

0:23:380:23:41

-for Catherine to find a bonus buy.

-Thank you.

0:23:410:23:44

Are you still with us? Cos you must be exhausted after all that.

0:23:440:23:47

Well, these two are exhausting.

0:23:470:23:50

We've had a lot of fun, but I am really tired.

0:23:500:23:52

-Are you strong enough to find something?

-I don't think so, but I'll give it a go.

0:23:520:23:56

-Dig deep.

-Wish me luck.

-I will. Good luck, Catherine.

0:23:560:23:58

For me, I'm heading off somewhere fit for a king...or a queen.

0:23:580:24:03

Leeds Castle, here, is nowhere near Leeds.

0:24:150:24:19

It's actually quite close to Maidstone. And it was built in 1119.

0:24:190:24:25

Over the years, successive kings gave this bijou country pad to their respective queens

0:24:250:24:33

and it became known as the Lady's castle.

0:24:330:24:37

How appropriate, therefore, that the last owner just happened to be a Lady.

0:24:370:24:43

Look out.

0:24:430:24:45

GEESE HONK

0:24:450:24:47

Lady Bailey was a wealthy Anglo-American heiress who liked to party.

0:24:470:24:53

Looking for a swish country retreat to hold her weekend soirees, she stumbled across Leeds Castle,

0:24:530:25:00

fell in love with it and bought it, in 1926, for the then princely sum of £180,000.

0:25:000:25:09

She both gutted and rebuilt parts of the castle

0:25:090:25:13

with a view to creating spaces where she could practise the consummate art of hospitality.

0:25:130:25:20

She took tiny little servants' rooms and created them into gracious reception spaces.

0:25:200:25:26

She took large bedrooms and carved them up to create bathrooms in which her guests could luxuriously wallow.

0:25:260:25:35

Ha! And what a place to wallow.

0:25:370:25:40

We've got terribly blase these days about luxury bathrooms

0:25:400:25:45

but I tell you, in the 1920s, if you actually had a bathroom,

0:25:450:25:49

it was a considerable achievement

0:25:490:25:51

and the number of people who would've had a bathroom like this,

0:25:510:25:55

entirely lined with solid slabs of Russian striated onyx,

0:25:550:26:02

this lovely brown and cream stripey stone that goes all round this space,

0:26:020:26:08

the fact that you've got a semi-sunken bath with matching stone lip and surround,

0:26:080:26:15

and instead of having to scrabble around for the plughole,

0:26:150:26:18

this bath has got the waste fitting attached to a lever

0:26:180:26:22

which would open the waste and out would go the water.

0:26:220:26:27

And if you wanted to have your barnet sorted out, by the hairdresser or your personal maid,

0:26:270:26:33

she'd reach into this recess and get the old shower fitting out.

0:26:330:26:39

This would rinse her Ladyship's hair while she's bending over the wash hand basin.

0:26:390:26:45

You've got the mixer tap here, all in glorious chromium plate.

0:26:450:26:50

And having had your hair done, you come over to the castle window and look out.

0:26:500:26:56

How many bathrooms sit on a magnificent lake like that?

0:26:570:27:02

Not many, eh?

0:27:020:27:05

Right next door to the bathroom, we've got the ultimate feminine place

0:27:050:27:09

but stylistically, this room looks as if it's been transplanted from 18th-century France.

0:27:090:27:16

So what's the purpose of this space?

0:27:160:27:19

Why were all these high-quality French fittings fitted up here?

0:27:190:27:23

Well, these glazed doors do look rather like library bookcase doors, don't they?

0:27:230:27:28

Containing books? Oh, no.

0:27:280:27:31

Not a library for books, but a library for clothes and shoes.

0:27:310:27:37

Imelda Marcos, eat your heart out, because Lady Bailey was collecting shoes years before you.

0:27:370:27:46

Time now, I think, to put our best foot forward and shuffle off to the auction.

0:27:460:27:51

We've come to Chiswick Auctions in West London today.

0:28:040:28:07

It's a joy to be with our auctioneer, William Rice.

0:28:070:28:10

-Welcome, Tim.

-Thank you.

0:28:100:28:12

The teams, then, Becky and Georgina, the Reds,

0:28:120:28:14

first up, they've got this little christening mug,

0:28:140:28:17

which I think is suffering from what I call the Brillo Pad school of cleaning.

0:28:170:28:21

I mean, it's quite badly polished off, isn't it?

0:28:210:28:23

It isn't terribly well polished and it's a bit plain.

0:28:230:28:26

Sometimes they sort of have rib decoration round them

0:28:260:28:30

or just something to give it a bit of extra oomph.

0:28:300:28:32

It's silver and silver price is good at the moment.

0:28:320:28:35

Quite. And they only paid £30. What's your estimate on it?

0:28:350:28:39

I think we've put 40-60 on it, actually, so I'd be astounded if they didn't make a small profit on it.

0:28:390:28:44

Brilliant. OK. Well, that would be very nice to kick off with.

0:28:440:28:47

Next is the pendant locket.

0:28:470:28:49

Nine-carat gold hallmark. Real seed pearls.

0:28:490:28:53

I think it's quite sweet.

0:28:530:28:54

It's in good condition too, which is important.

0:28:540:28:57

-It's ready for something to go inside.

-Ready to go.

-Absolutely.

0:28:570:29:00

-How much, then, do you think?

-50 plus.

-50 plus. £70 was paid.

0:29:000:29:04

Gold and pearls together.

0:29:040:29:05

-What more could you want?

-Well, quite. What more could a girl want?

0:29:050:29:09

What about the little Limoges miniature set?

0:29:090:29:13

Well, it's not everybody's taste, it has to be said, but it's complete and that's pretty important.

0:29:130:29:19

Yes.

0:29:190:29:21

-So how much, then, do you think?

-Well, again, I think £50-£80.

0:29:210:29:24

Do you? £15 is all they paid for that.

0:29:240:29:27

Good. Well, we've done very well with some Limoges recently.

0:29:270:29:30

-Good.

-Maybe that will fly away.

-Well, that's marvellous.

0:29:300:29:33

-Potentially, there's a bit of profit...

-Should be.

0:29:330:29:36

..in all of these items, which is good.

0:29:360:29:38

But you never know, things can go wrong, so let's go and have a look at the bonus buy.

0:29:380:29:44

You girls, you spent £115, you sisters, right?

0:29:440:29:47

-Yeah.

-You gave Anita, therefore, £185.

0:29:470:29:50

Has she blown the lot on this wee thing?

0:29:500:29:53

I certainly haven't blown the lot.

0:29:530:29:55

I found this little wee object absolutely irresistible.

0:29:550:30:00

Aww!

0:30:000:30:02

The girls love jewellery and I was looking for a big bit of bling.

0:30:020:30:05

Do you like frogs, though?

0:30:050:30:08

-I like sparkly ones.

-Sparkly frogs, do you?

0:30:080:30:11

-How much was it?

-I paid £15.

-15?

-That's good. Yeah.

0:30:110:30:16

Look how they bucked up, the girls, on that.

0:30:160:30:19

I was expecting a bit more, so I think that's good.

0:30:190:30:22

-So, Georgina, what do you think?

-Yeah. I like it. It's sweet.

0:30:220:30:25

-It's different. You don't really see a brooch like that.

-No.

0:30:250:30:27

-I've never seen one like that!

-You don't have to decide now.

0:30:270:30:30

You'll decide after the sale of the first three items.

0:30:300:30:33

But for the viewers at home, let's find out what the auctioneer thinks about Anita's green brooch.

0:30:330:30:39

-So, William, something completely different.

-Certainly is.

0:30:390:30:42

I think it's rather fun.

0:30:420:30:44

It isn't gold, obviously, and there's nothing precious about it metal-wise,

0:30:440:30:48

but it's enamel and sort of little tiny chips of what look like diamonds.

0:30:480:30:53

How much, do you think?

0:30:530:30:56

-Well, I think with a following wind, £20, £30.

-OK. Fine. Well, Anita paid £15 and she's very canny.

0:30:560:31:02

-She should turn a profit on that.

-I think so.

0:31:020:31:04

Good. That's it for the Reds. Now for the Blues, Bramwell and Stuart.

0:31:040:31:08

Their first item is the little inkwell.

0:31:080:31:10

Not a very capacious inkwell.

0:31:100:31:12

It's got the tiniest little space for ink but, yeah, inkwell it certainly is.

0:31:120:31:16

Transfer decorated and it is what it is, really.

0:31:160:31:20

Yes. How much, though, do you think?

0:31:200:31:22

Well, I think I'd put about £30, £40 on it.

0:31:220:31:25

Well, that's brilliant. £18 paid.

0:31:250:31:26

That's not so bad. Excellent.

0:31:260:31:28

Next is the little tortoiseshell necklace box.

0:31:280:31:33

I think that's a very nice thing. It's in good condition.

0:31:330:31:37

Its silver-gilt hinges are hallmarked so we can date it.

0:31:370:31:40

It's got nice initials slap bang in the middle,

0:31:400:31:43

though I challenge anybody to work out what they actually are.

0:31:430:31:47

-It's a very complicated monogram, isn't it?

-It is.

-Yeah.

0:31:470:31:49

But it's just a really attractive box and tortoiseshell is always desirable,

0:31:490:31:53

-especially if it's in good condition.

-What do you think it's worth?

0:31:530:31:56

I think £200.

0:31:560:31:58

Do you? Well, £159 was paid with some trepidation. Let's hope it does well.

0:31:580:32:04

And lastly in their purchases, is this little magnifying glass.

0:32:040:32:08

Now, do you think that handle's ivory or what?

0:32:080:32:10

I don't think it is. No. I'm not quite sure what it is, actually, but ivory it isn't.

0:32:100:32:15

Sometimes they make them out of old knives or old bits of cutlery. I don't think this one has been.

0:32:150:32:20

I think it's always been a magnifying glass.

0:32:200:32:23

Well, they paid another pretty keen price for this. £47.50 was paid for that magnifying glass.

0:32:230:32:29

It ought to sell, I think,

0:32:290:32:31

with a sort of estimate around the £30 mark.

0:32:310:32:33

Round the £30 mark. Right.

0:32:330:32:35

-25-40.

-So they may not do quite so well on that.

0:32:350:32:37

I don't think anybody will go crazy about it.

0:32:370:32:39

No. Crazy. Good.

0:32:390:32:42

Well, just in case, let's go and have a look at the bonus buy.

0:32:420:32:45

Well, boys, you spent £224.50, which is great.

0:32:450:32:49

You gave Catherine £75.50. What did she spend it on?

0:32:490:32:53

-Are you ready for this, guys?

-No.

0:32:530:32:55

Here we are.

0:32:550:32:57

Look at these little beauties.

0:32:570:32:59

They're miniature Toby jugs.

0:32:590:33:02

-Really?

-A Mr and a Mrs.

0:33:020:33:04

-Which one am I?

-You're the Mrs.

0:33:040:33:07

-Of course.

-Definitely.

0:33:070:33:09

Does that work about right?

0:33:090:33:10

Let's have a closer look at these.

0:33:100:33:13

-Oh, yeah.

-Mine's got lipstick on there.

0:33:130:33:16

-Royal Worcester.

-I like them.

0:33:160:33:19

I paid £40 for them and I think we should make a bit of profit on these

0:33:190:33:25

cos the book price is about £50, £60 each.

0:33:250:33:27

I don't personally like them, but we might make a profit.

0:33:270:33:29

They're going to make money. That's the main thing.

0:33:290:33:32

That's the main thing. Absolutely.

0:33:320:33:33

-Nice jugs(!)

-They're nice.

0:33:330:33:35

On that note, I think we'll move on quickly

0:33:350:33:38

and find out what the auctioneer thinks about Catherine's little bits of pottery.

0:33:380:33:43

There you go. You can have Mrs.

0:33:430:33:45

What do you make of these little Worcester jokers?

0:33:450:33:47

I was worried about them at the beginning because I don't think they're terribly good quality

0:33:470:33:52

and Worcester is, after all, known for fundamentally really good things.

0:33:520:33:56

I know what you mean, because the underglaze transferred mark

0:33:560:34:01

is underneath a particularly odd-looking milky glaze.

0:34:010:34:06

It just doesn't hang together terribly well and with the poor painting on top,

0:34:060:34:10

it does make me slightly doubt them.

0:34:100:34:12

I think you're right to be suspicious.

0:34:120:34:15

But having said that, what are they worth?

0:34:150:34:17

-£40.

-Right.

-Something like that.

-Catherine paid £40.

0:34:170:34:20

So anything more than 40 will show them a profit.

0:34:200:34:24

-That's if they go with the bonus buy and nothing is certain in life.

-No.

0:34:240:34:28

Anyway, we'll find out in the auction.

0:34:280:34:32

-OK, girls, how are you feeling?

-Good. Excited.

-Are you?

-Yeah.

0:34:400:34:43

-Quite nerve-racking, isn't it?

-Yeah.

-A bit.

0:34:430:34:46

Anyway, first lot up is the christening cup and here it comes.

0:34:460:34:49

Lot 92A. A little christening mug there. What's it worth? £30 for it.

0:34:490:34:53

£20 for a christening mug. 20.

0:34:530:34:55

22. 24. 26. 28. 30.

0:34:550:34:59

-32. 34.

-Yes!

0:34:590:35:01

40. 45. Do you want 45?

0:35:010:35:02

£45 nearer to me.

0:35:020:35:04

-At 45. It's £45 for the silver.

-50.

0:35:040:35:08

-45 it is, then.

-Well, done, girls. £45.

0:35:080:35:11

You are plus £15.

0:35:110:35:13

Straight out. Yeah.

0:35:130:35:14

Good start.

0:35:140:35:16

So, your locket, Anita.

0:35:160:35:18

Is it going to be so sweet on this?

0:35:180:35:23

Lot 93A is a nine-carat gold pendant locket.

0:35:230:35:25

Must be £30 of gold there. £20 to start me, then.

0:35:250:35:28

Surely, for the little gold locket, for 20. Dear, oh, dear.

0:35:280:35:33

£10, then. At 12.

0:35:330:35:36

14.

0:35:360:35:38

16. 18.

0:35:380:35:40

£18. In the distance at £18. That's all I'm bid, at 18.

0:35:400:35:43

20, fresh bidding.

0:35:430:35:46

22. 24.

0:35:460:35:48

26. 28. £28 to the lady. At 28.

0:35:480:35:51

Anybody else want to come in, at £28?

0:35:510:35:55

At 30, just in time. £30 to the gentleman, now. At £30.

0:35:550:35:59

Selling it for 30.

0:35:590:36:00

Bad luck, Anita. £30.

0:36:000:36:02

-That is so cheap.

-Minus £40.

0:36:020:36:04

-Which means, overall, you are minus £25.

-We'll make it up.

0:36:040:36:09

-Now, Limoges.

-Ooh, we could.

0:36:090:36:11

Cross everything. All right?

0:36:110:36:14

Everybody hold hands. Hold hands.

0:36:140:36:18

Lot 94A is the Limoges tea set. Where shall we start this? £20.

0:36:180:36:21

-20 for the tea set.

-Come on.

-£10 I'm bid.

0:36:210:36:26

At 10. 12. 14.

0:36:260:36:30

20. Selling, then, for £20 only.

0:36:300:36:33

At £20, that tea set.

0:36:330:36:35

-£20 it is, then.

-Bad luck, darling.

0:36:350:36:37

-£20 is still a £5 profit.

-Yeah.

0:36:370:36:40

But the estimate wasn't particularly accurate, was it?

0:36:400:36:43

-No. They got our hopes up.

-You are overall, darlings, I'm afraid, minus £20. OK?

-OK.

0:36:430:36:48

You're minus £20 which is not bad.

0:36:480:36:50

It could be a winning score. Are you going with the bonus buy?

0:36:500:36:52

-Going to go with the froggies?

-We are.

-Yeah.

0:36:520:36:55

-Risk £15?

-Yeah. Might as well.

0:36:550:36:57

-Yeah. Go on.

-Yeah. We're going to do it.

0:36:570:37:00

You're going with the bonus buy and here it comes.

0:37:000:37:03

Lot 97A is the amusing yellow metal and green enamel brooch

0:37:030:37:08

in the form of four frogs.

0:37:080:37:10

Start me for £10 for the little brooch, then.

0:37:100:37:13

10, I'm bid.

0:37:130:37:16

Anybody else? At 10. 12.

0:37:160:37:18

They're appearing everywhere. At 12. 14. 16. 18. 20. 22.

0:37:180:37:23

24. 26. 28.

0:37:230:37:26

30. 32.

0:37:260:37:28

£32, there. 34, anybody else?

0:37:280:37:30

£32 in the bed. 34, there.

0:37:300:37:33

£34, fresh bidder.

0:37:330:37:35

At £34. Anybody else? The hammer's coming down.

0:37:350:37:38

34 it is, then. 34.

0:37:380:37:41

-Yes! Yes!

-£34!

0:37:410:37:47

£34 is plus £19.

0:37:470:37:49

-You're still minus £1.

-Oh, no!

0:37:490:37:52

The big thing now is not to reveal your big losses to the Blues.

0:37:520:37:56

-We won't. We won't.

-50p each.

0:37:560:37:58

Keep really quiet about that.

0:37:580:38:00

-We don't want them to know.

-No.

0:38:000:38:01

-But good fun, eh?

-Yeah.

-Loved it.

0:38:010:38:04

Now, Stu, Stu, Bram, Bram, do you know how the Red Reds got on?

0:38:090:38:14

-They did little eyes.

-Looked a bit smug.

0:38:140:38:16

A bit smug when they went past you?

0:38:160:38:18

Don't like little eyes. Very unnerving.

0:38:180:38:20

Is that what it is? Yeah.

0:38:200:38:22

Anyway, first up, then, is the curling stone paperweight inkwell and here it comes. Och, aye!

0:38:220:38:27

Lot 112A

0:38:270:38:30

is an amusing pottery inkwell in the form of a curling stone.

0:38:300:38:34

£20 to start me. £20 for it, surely.

0:38:340:38:36

£10 for it, somebody.

0:38:360:38:38

10. 10 all over the place. £10 there, sir.

0:38:380:38:41

12.

0:38:410:38:42

14. 16. £18, fresh bidding.

0:38:420:38:46

20. At £20, then.

0:38:460:38:48

I'm going to sell it for £20.

0:38:480:38:50

-Well, done, Catherine. £2 profit, Catherine.

-That's mean, isn't it?

0:38:500:38:54

-A pound each.

-A profit is a profit.

0:38:540:38:56

Thank you. Now, next is going to be this necklace case.

0:38:560:39:00

-All eyes on you.

-We're all very nervous.

0:39:000:39:02

-Tim looks worried.

-Dude.

-It's a dude?

0:39:020:39:05

113A is the tortoiseshell box.

0:39:050:39:08

Start me for 100.

0:39:080:39:10

£80 for the lot. 80 I'm bid. There, £80.

0:39:100:39:13

85. 90. 95. 100. 110, fresh bidding.

0:39:130:39:17

120. 130.

0:39:170:39:20

140. 150.

0:39:200:39:22

-Go on!

-160.

0:39:220:39:24

160, there. At £160. At 160.

0:39:240:39:26

Anybody else? 160 is the bid, then. 160.

0:39:260:39:30

Yes. Well, done.

0:39:300:39:32

You've made a profit of £1.

0:39:320:39:34

-Told you it'd fly.

-Super. Well, done.

0:39:340:39:37

Good lads. Good lads.

0:39:370:39:39

OK. So, here comes the magnifying glass.

0:39:410:39:44

114A is a little magnifying glass.

0:39:440:39:48

114A.

0:39:480:39:50

Again, I've got some interest in this.

0:39:500:39:52

I'm already bid £20. With me at £20. For the little magnifying glass. £20.

0:39:520:39:56

22. 24. 26. 28.

0:39:560:39:59

30. 32.

0:39:590:40:01

34. 36. Still with me at £36.

0:40:010:40:03

Fresh bidding, 38.

0:40:030:40:05

40. 45. 50.

0:40:050:40:08

55. 60. Still with me at £60.

0:40:080:40:11

Anybody else want to come in?

0:40:110:40:13

At £60, it's on a left bid of £60.

0:40:130:40:15

65.

0:40:150:40:17

70. I'm afraid it's still with me at £70. That's £70 the bid.

0:40:170:40:20

£70 is the bid, then. At 70.

0:40:200:40:23

That's good. 70! That is something else, isn't it?

0:40:230:40:27

-I do not understand that.

-That's plus £22.50, right?

0:40:270:40:31

Which means, overall, you are plus £25.50.

0:40:310:40:35

What are you going to do about this bonus buy? You're £25.50 up. Right.

0:40:350:40:40

You can park it or you can risk it.

0:40:400:40:42

£40 you're putting at risk.

0:40:420:40:46

Toby jugs.

0:40:460:40:48

-Are you with it or not?

-Yes. Yes.

0:40:480:40:50

We're going with the bonus buy.

0:40:500:40:52

-Link arms. Link arms.

-Link arms.

-£20 to start me.

0:40:520:40:55

Anybody? 20, I'm bid.

0:40:550:40:57

Straight in at £20. And two I'll take. At £20. 22.

0:40:570:41:00

24. 26. 28. 30. 32. 34.

0:41:000:41:05

36. 38.

0:41:050:41:08

40. 45.

0:41:080:41:11

45 with the lady. 50 now.

0:41:110:41:13

£50 with the gentleman.

0:41:130:41:14

At £50. Anybody else want to come in?

0:41:140:41:16

50. That's £50 with the gentleman in the distance. At £50.

0:41:160:41:20

I'm selling them, then. £50 they go.

0:41:200:41:22

-50.

-£50 plus £10. Easy, isn't it?

0:41:220:41:24

-Well, done.

-You are... Whoops!

0:41:240:41:26

..plus £35.50, overall. Right?

0:41:280:41:32

That is...remarkable.

0:41:320:41:35

Bargain Hunting at its best.

0:41:350:41:37

-£35.50. Yes?

-Yes.

0:41:370:41:38

-Don't tell the Reds a thing.

-I won't. I've got to calm down.

0:41:380:41:42

Well, what an exciting programme we've had today, haven't we?

-So have we Blues and Reds been communicating at all? No?

-No.

0:41:500:41:53

No conversation so you really don't know where you're up to.

0:41:530:41:56

-No.

-And you're standing on the edge, longing to know who the runner-up is and who the winners are.

0:41:560:42:02

-Yes?

-Yes.

0:42:020:42:04

Well, I have to tell you that sadly, the runners-up today are the Reds.

0:42:040:42:10

Tricked!

0:42:130:42:14

-You girls, we had such fun, didn't we?

-We did.

0:42:140:42:16

I mean, you were well and truly down the plughole and then clawed it back with your froggy brooch.

0:42:160:42:22

I'm afraid your overall score is only minus £1. I mean, how tough is that?

0:42:220:42:28

-To get to the breaking even, at least. But it was great fun, girls, wasn't it?

-Yes. It was.

0:42:280:42:33

And you've been a great team. But the victors, today - the Blues.

0:42:330:42:37

Profit on every single lot.

0:42:370:42:39

That's an achievement, a considerable achievement.

0:42:390:42:42

You went with the bonus buy. You got a tenner off the bonus buy too, so congratulations.

0:42:420:42:46

-It's down to our expert.

-And £35.50 is what you're going to walk off with.

0:42:460:42:53

-There's your £35. There's your 50.

-You get that.

0:42:530:42:56

Which is great. And quite a handful for you to handle, Catherine.

0:42:560:43:00

-What can I say?

-You have been fantastic. You have been fantastic.

0:43:000:43:03

-Worth it. Definitely worth it.

-You've made a profit on every single lot.

0:43:030:43:07

-Anyway, great show. Join us soon for some more Bargain Hunting. Yes?

-Yes!

Expert Catherine Southon certainly needs her running shoes to keep up with the Blue team, who are obsessed with just one thing - the price. They have her dashing all over Ardingly antiques fair in a bid to buy their three items before they run out of time, but will they? Sisters make up the Red team. They are decisive and have a good old shop with expert Anita Manning. Meanwhile, Tim Wonnacott visits Leeds Castle in Maidstone.
