Today, we're in Oswestry for a special programme with some famous faces.
We've got the East End...
And there's a noisy West End team.
# Consider yourself our mate
# Consider yourself one of the family... #
And today, all profits are going to charity.
But how will the plot unfold down at the auction?
# Who will buy this wonderful morning?
# Such a sky you never did see! #
Yes, it's a star-studded edition of Bargain Hunt today.
We've got two teams of celebrities, one from the small screen,
the other from the West End.
There could be some drama!
For the Red team, the EastEnders. We have Perry Fenwick, who plays market trader Billy Mitchell.
-I don't want you going behind my back.
-Of course not.
And with him, Emma Barton, who played his screen wife Honey.
-Perry, Emma, hello.
-How lovely to see you!
-You're together now. You clearly get on pretty well.
-All right really, I suppose, in small doses.
-Perry, have you been to an antique fair?
-Yes, I've seen you at many.
-I live right near Alexandra Palace.
-I stalk you sometimes.
-That is a good fair.
-Very good, yeah.
What sort of things do you collect?
I like film and TV memorabilia, sports memorabilia.
-Big football fan.
-And I collect Dinky toys.
-Do you have a nice play at the weekends?
-I don't play with them.
It's just the ones I wanted when I was a kid.
-Do you go for anything like this, Em?
-No, I stay well clear of the Dinky toys.
But I do like any sort of memorabilia, a bit like Perry, films. I'm a massive Carry On fan.
-It's all connected with work then?
-It is a bit, but I do like furniture
and I've always wanted my own cash register. An old-fashioned one.
I have! I used to like playing shops.
He used to like playing cars.
-She's fond of a pound note.
That's where you'd put all your savings? In a cash register?
-What was it like working with Perry on EastEnders?
-We had a ball, didn't we?
We got on very well from the word go.
It shows, doesn't it, on film?
When there is a little bit of a bond between a couple.
I think so and we worked really hard at it, right from the word go.
Do you reckon you'll make a great team today?
-I think so.
-As long as he does exactly what he's told.
-Well, what's different?
-Exactly, what's new?
-Nothing at all.
-Anyway, welcome. Good luck.
-Thank you very much.
Now we move to the West End with Richard O'Brien and Jodie Prenger.
# I won't betray... #
Jodie Prenger shot to fame when she won the BBC's search for Nancy
and then went on to star in the role on stage.
# I've got to stay true
# Just... #
# Let's do the Time Warp again... #
And her partner today, Richard O'Brien, is famous worldwide
for writing and starring in the cult musical The Rocky Horror Show.
He later went on to front the popular Crystal Maze game show,
but will they seize a gem of a bargain today?
-Jodie, you don't just do musical theatre, do you?
-I don't, no, thank goodness!
I do acting on TV, you know, that stuff that real actors do,
on radio, like they do and you do and you do.
Do you know anything about antiques?
As a child, me and my mum and dad always used to go to antiques fairs.
Every year, we bought those massive encyclopaedias of antiques. But do I know anything about 'em? Not at all.
Richard, what's your style of preference?
I have a lot of ecclesiastical stuff around the house.
I like Parian Ware and I do like Arts and Crafts. That period appeals to me a lot.
You know a lot about it then?
Well, I'm of a certain age, Tim.
-It's not a question... You just pick it up as you go on, don't you?
-You do indeed.
It's nice to talk to you. You've got a slight twang to your voice.
-I've been called "plummy" before.
-I'm getting something Antipodean.
-A little Antipodean there, Tim?
-I am slightly, mate.
I was brought up in New Zealand. I'm a New Zealander. I'm a Kiwi.
-Well, I am.
I'm just thinking of the food.
The bird, no.
-The flightless bird? No.
How do you rate your chances against the Reds today?
We've got only 300 quid, we have to buy something at a price cheaper
than the retailer would have to pay for it at auction.
-It's a difficult one.
That's why on Bargain Hunt, when you make a profit, we jump up and down,
even if it's only a couple of quid!
-Cos it's an achievement.
This is your money moment. Here's your £300.
-£300 apiece. Look at that nice wodge!
You know the rules, your experts await and off you go!
And very, very good luck. We're going to have fun today!
Our thespian friends will need experts, so we've drafted in a couple of regulars.
We know that Thomas Plant always makes a drama out of antiques,
so Perry and Emma should feel right at home.
Hold on. Let me come between you.
# You bring your knees in tight
# But it's the pelvic thrust
# That really drives you insane... #
And fortunately, David Barby is much better at bargain hunting than dancing, as you can see!
-Where's my agent?
-So we're going to get right into it?
-Definitely. I do need a hat though.
-Have you got hat envy?
-I have got real hat envy.
-First port of call - hat shop.
-Hat shop, please.
Hat shop? This isn't the high street!
-Jodie, what are you going to look for?
-Something dramatic. It's got to be show biz. A few diamonds, pearls!
-What have I taken on?
-You'll find out soon enough, David!
-Look, it's them.
-Here comes trouble! Here comes trouble!
Well, I'd just like to say, jolly good luck, and I mean that most sincerely.
You're a fabulous actor!
-I'm slightly scared now. Come on.
-See you later.
- Best of British. - Watch you don't trip up!
That's the spirit...I think!
-Very GI Jane!
-The West End team are looking a bit threatening.
That's all right.
There you are, look at that!
-That's rather good.
-Am I in the team now?
-Am I in the team?
I don't think we'll be buying weapons or grenades. No, no, no!
-Where's the West End team?
You can't blow them out of the water yet. You've only just started.
I like that.
But talking of water...
-It's such an unusual piece.
-It is a lavatory bowl, isn't it?
-Yes, of course.
-This would have been...
-Could be used as a bidet?
A bidet would have a hole at the bottom to let the water out. This lets solids out.
You didn't have to be quite so specific, David.
What's so nice, if you look at it inside,
you can see how the print has been used.
This is the Warwick vase here.
-Could you not use that?
-You need a little trap at the bottom which opens up like that.
-Like an airline one.
-Like an airline one or one on the railway.
-It's not very practical.
-It was, but it's not now.
So it's a "no" to the redundant lavatory bowl. Glad to see the Blues are taking this seriously!
Unlike some I could mention.
PRESSES HOOTER, LAUGHTER
-That's a really good noise.
-Can I do it again?
-Do it again.
I don't know. They're like kids in a sweet shop, aren't they?
This is very Arts and Crafts. It's a shame there's no jug to go with it as well.
-I love these galleons all the way round.
-They are good. How much is it?
-I don't know.
-Shall we ask? Let's have an ask and see.
-Do you like it? Do you really like it? Would you buy that?
-I would not buy that, actually, personally.
It's a little bit too camp, David.
-That's the last thing I would want to be accused of!
-We can always come back to it.
-We can always have it as a safe option.
-Well, if it's...
-Come on, come on.
-Never mind, Mr Barby. There's no accounting for taste. Isn't that right, Thomas?
I quite like the toby jugs, actually.
-I just like toby jugs.
-Really? This is a revelation. Toby jugs?
You can get some really nice faces.
-And some really ugly ones.
-You can also get some hideous ones.
-You're not saying a word.
-I've never been a fan of the toby jug.
-You've got to look for big, bold and decorative.
-That's what we want.
Did Thomas just nimbly sidestep those jugs? I think he did!
The Blues, however, seem to have a bowl fixation.
-It's a spittoon.
-Very Arts and Crafts.
-175 quid is too rich...
-You can do it for 100?
-..for our blood.
-- 150. - 100.
If it's for charity, 130.
- That's me finished. - We'll give you a song.
That'll be 140 if you do that.
After all the trials and tribulations you've been through?
-I know. I feel crushed!
-Do you really need him?
Over a lavatory bowl, no!
You tell him, Jodie. That's cured that bowl fixation.
-Oh, gosh, I do like him!
-You like him?
-Has he got a growl?
-I doubt it.
-So this is... He's a Chiltern bear.
1920s-1940s, mohair, very good condition.
Velvet paws, stiffened cardboard-covered velvet feet.
-That's good, isn't it?
-He's quite sweet, isn't he?
We can do better than that, can't we?
What about... That's a good price.
A little bit more off would be lovely.
-And a little bit more?
-No, I'm sorry.
-His mohair is all...
-What if I give you 120?
You'll have me shot, you lot.
PERRY: Oh, go on!
-If my wife comes, I'm in trouble.
-Quick, let's do the deal. Let's do the deal.
-120 then, OK.
-Wonderful. Thank you very much.
-Thank you very much.
Well done, Em.
Wisely bought before his missus found out.
One down, Reds.
Meanwhile, Richard and David are having a tete-a-tete.
It's quite nice. Don't look so astonished. Some modern stuff is quite good.
-Yes, and your point is?
They're at it again. They've never stopped talking.
Come on, Blues. You're lagging behind.
Less squabbling, more buying!
-Oh, that little set!
-A little shaving set.
Is it a shaving set? It's chromed. It's a dressing table set.
-Is that a cut-throat as well?
-It will be a little penknife.
It says here...
-It's for your feet!
-What are corns?
-They're what you get on your feet.
-Yeah, you cut it off.
-What's that other thing next to it?
-That's for picking your ear.
Oh, lovely! It's getting better and better(!)
They were thorough, weren't they?
I just made that up. Hang on. Is it?
Oh, it's for your nail.
Do you want to go for it, Perry?
Excuse me... God, you didn't have to push me like that!
Take no notice of her!
You have a terrible time where you live, so we'll have to...
I need a bit of luck, to be honest with you.
-The very best price on it is £40.
-£40, very best.
-That's 15 off.
-£40 is your best price, yeah?
-Oh, £35 for you, but that's it.
Oooh, I need to consult with my expert, but thank you very much.
I like it, I like it.
But I'm more concerned about making as much money as we can
and I don't think we'll make much money on that.
-Let's move on.
-Thank you very much.
-Jodie, here, darling.
-Let's have a look.
-Have you got pierced ears?
-I have. Let's have a look.
They're for Pat Butcher. You'd better watch the other team don't pick them up!
-They're quite nice. How much are they?
-Are they silver?
-Yes, they are.
Do you want an eyeglass to look?
-What do you think?
-Put the other one on. You look lovely, actually.
-It's as though they were made for you.
-Do I look like Pat Butcher?
-Not Pat Butcher, no.
Oh, they're large, aren't they?
They are large. This is for Children in Need. Is there anything you can do for us on these?
Oh, you've got to have a bigger heart than that!
Shall we say a tenner?
-Do you like them? Richard?
-I'll do them for a tenner. How's that?
RICHARD: For £10, yes, a bargain.
-Yeah, they're different, aren't they?
Maybe... I'm worth it. Maybe I'm born with it. Toss, toss.
Work it, Jodie. Work it.
-I like those, don't you?
-I think they're rather nice.
-For a tenner?
-I think for £10, yes.
-OK, let's go with it.
-Let's do it.
-It's our first buy. I can't believe it!
-# Hallelujah! #
-Don't look so relieved.
Praise indeed! With half their shopping time gone, that's the Blues' first buy.
-This is a sailor's valentine. It's a love token.
It's a heart. The sailor would give this to his loved one before he departed at sea.
-You've got the little anchors there. This one is Victorian.
-It is sweet.
-It is lovely.
That doesn't really happen any more, does it?
-It's just an e-mail and text.
-Yeah, exactly. Twitter!
It's a proper antique and it's a thing for love. We could all do with a bit of love now and again.
-I love it.
-Shall we see how much we can get it for?
-Yeah, I reckon.
-It's a really nice thing. I like the story behind it.
-Yeah, I do.
Cue Thomas Plant haggling sign language!
-You can do a little bit better. No shifting?
-It was 85.
-Oh, I see.
-We've got it down to 70.
-It's pretty much all together.
-I think if you were over 100 years old...
-Well, he's not far off!
That's the second comment.
You just cheer up, don't you, basically, to give me a dig?
Anyway, shall we...?
-Shall we get it?
-I think we should get it.
-You like that, yeah?
No shilly-shallying there. Decisive action!
That's what we like. Are you listening, Blues?
-It's got a registration, whatever that means. What does that mean?
-It's clean brass, isn't it?
-That's beautiful, fantastic. Where did you say the registration mark is?
It's on the back somewhere.
It's pretty. I could imagine that on my dressing table.
Filled with make-up, mascara and a few false eyelashes!
You've got a liner missing. There should be a liner in there to take the ink. It's not there.
-But it does look beautiful, that glass, doesn't it?
-Yeah, it does.
-What's the very best price on this?
-The very best price would be 55.
-55? That's your very best price?
-Oh, you can do better than that.
-You've got kind eyes. You've got kind eyes.
-Let's have a look.
50. I've taken another five off down to 50.
Let's have a look what you paid for it and we'll put another pound on top of that.
It is very elegant.
-The main problem is it hasn't got the liner. I think we need to come back on this.
Come on. Time is of the essence.
You said it, Jodie. 20 minutes left, Blues, and two items still to buy.
Perry's found something perfect for the Queen Vic. Is this a bargain?
-I've spotted something.
-What is it?
-"Mitchell's Special Scotch Whisky."
-Is it the correct spelling?
-Yes, it is.
-That's bizarre, isn't it?
"Property of the Mitchell Brothers Limited." Grant and Phil!
-That's a shame, isn't it?
-Oh, what a shame! You haven't got a smaller one?
-Do you like that?
-Yeah, I do. I think it's quite...
-Why do you like that?
I could see a lovely few pots of herbs in the kitchen.
It's one of those things, ugly-beautiful.
It's green, isn't it? I think that's what's putting me off.
-Do you not like green?
-No, it's the same as the other bowl you were picking up.
-I'm going to have problems. I really am going to have problems. Let's move on.
-That stool there?
-It's a coronation stool.
-Oh, is it?
-If you turn it over, it'll have "ER" or "G".
-It keeps with the theme, doesn't it?
-There isn't a theme!
-A sailor's valentine, a teddy bear...
-And a coronation stool!
-Coronation stool, £45. I mean, that's what they make.
-They make £40 to £60.
-So we're not going to do too much on it.
But if you are a royalist, that is what you must have. Think about it.
-There's still quite a lot we haven't seen.
-I think there's lots you haven't seen.
-Carry on looking?
-Let's carry on.
-Thanks, mate. We might pop back.
OK, but you haven't got long, Reds. That goes for you too, Blues.
-Oh, a purse.
-A purse for the ladies.
-That's very nice.
-Pretty, isn't it?
That is a collector's item. It's not to be functional. It's not to be used.
I love the overall design, the rococo scrollwork.
-It's got leather inside.
-It's in excellent condition. It's hardly been used.
-How much is it?
-We have a price of 145.
It was made in London in 1905.
And I can do a best of...110?
-Shall I get the violin out?
-Go on, play the violin.
HUMS SAD TUNE
Oh, my... LAUGHTER
-You can do better than that.
Well, I'll be happy to reduce the price down to 95.
OK, that's very nice, but may we have a look at that before we make a decision?
-What is it?
-It's a measuring pencil.
It's fully retractable. It has a lead pencil in the end.
-And you can measure with it as well. It goes up to 12 inches.
What other uses are there for it?
-I'm not joining in...
-I was going to say, "Don't rise to it!"
-I'm not joining in with this.
And the date and price of that?
The date is 1897.
- OK. - It's American-made.
-That "ah" was...
-That wasn't a good sound.
-That wasn't a good "ah".
But it is extremely collectable and quite rare.
If we bought the two, what special consideration would you give?
120 for the pencil.
-I think they're both delightful. What does that total add up to?
-That total is 210.
-210. And we've spent a tenner.
-We've got our three pieces.
-Can we say 2? It sounds nicer.
2 sounds better. We'll say 2. There we go.
-Oh, my goodness!
Actually, can I give you a hug?
Oh, yes. With that, the Blues have it wrapped up.
What about a song?
# Consider yourself our mate
# Consider yourself one of the family... #
A rousing tune and applause. How appropriate!
-That is brilliant. I think it's time for cocktails.
-I think it is too.
So with minutes left, the Blues have all three items
and the Reds have decided to go for the coronation stool.
-Who's going to negotiate on the stool? Perry, are you going to do it?
-Yeah. Let's go.
-Hey, guys, how are we doing? You've got two items?
-Yes, we have.
-You're running out of time. You know that?
-It certainly is. Go for it!
-Is the Red team still at it?
-They must be. I can't see them anywhere.
-Maybe they're in the huts.
They're not really decision-makers, obviously.
Your coronation stool, right?
We've got a couple of minutes left to blow one more item.
£30 is my best price.
-30 quid. 25?
-Got my hat.
Make it 28.
-Deal. Thank you very much.
-Yay! Well done, Perry!
-Well done, Perry. That was really good.
-I'll have a sit down.
-Yeah. Thank you very much.
-Let's go and have a cup of tea.
-That would be really nice. Thanks.
We nearly saw the credits start to roll, but our EastEnders got there in the nick of time.
Let's review their three buys.
MUSIC: EastEnders theme
Their first purchase was old Ted here for £120.
They felt warm and fuzzy over the sweetheart pincushion for 70.
And a bit of cockney charm got the coronation stool for £28.
-last minute! We left it to the last, but we're quietly confident.
-You spent how much all told?
-Two hundred and...eighteen.
-218. I'd like, please, £82 of leftover lolly.
-Let's see what we've got.
-You're an absolute honey.
Anyway, there we go, look. There's your 82. Stop snatching!
-Any idea what you'll spend it on?
Well, on that happy note, you'd better go and find your bonus buy.
Relax, have a cup of tea, guys. Meanwhile, why don't we check out what the Blue team bought, eh?
# Let's do the Time Warp again! #
A pair of striking 1950s earrings got the West Enders under way.
A glamorous silver purse with rococo design was snapped up for £90...
along with a more practical silver extending ruler with pencil for 110.
-So, Jodie, what did you spend?
-Well, we spent today £210.
-Please may I have £90 of leftover lolly?
-You can count it!
-No, I trust you!
It goes straight across to our man. What will you spend it on? Ceramics?
Something fun, something exciting, theatrical, frivolous.
-There's a nice wedding dress in there.
-It doesn't fit. I tried.
-I hope I make a decision quicker than you did!
-Have these two been like this all day?
And it's not over yet, Jodie! It's time to hotfoot it over to Nantwich in Cheshire,
to Peter Wilson's Fine Art Auctioneers. Let's find out Robert Stone's verdict on our lots.
25 anywhere now? At £20, then.
-Well, how exciting is this?
-Are you feeling confident?
-We'll give it everything we can.
-Absolutely. Lovely to be with you.
-You're very kind.
First up for Perry and Emma is this wee teddy bear. How do you rate that?
These are very interesting. When you hand somebody a teddy bear, they go for the ear
to see if there's a stud for Steiff teddy bears. This hasn't got one. This is a Chiltern's teddy bear.
-An English-made teddy bear.
-You'll have to pull the stops out. £120 Emma paid for this.
Anyway, next is the heart-shaped valentine.
The valentine, yeah. I've seen quite a few.
This one looks a little bit tired.
-So how much?
-Not good enough. You'll get bashed on this.
-Oh, dear, OK.
-What about the coronation stool?
-Well, what happened was... It was quite interesting.
When you attended the Queen's coronation, you got something to sit on, a stool or a chair.
The idea was that after the coronation you were actually allowed to buy the piece of furniture.
So, strangely, there are quite a few of these rolling about the market.
-What's your estimate of value?
-Well, that is a relief.
-They only paid £28.
They'll be into money on that! Thank goodness!
But otherwise, with the bear and the valentine not hitting the spot, they'll need their bonus buy.
Let's go and have a look at it.
Now, Perry and Emma, this is your leftover lolly moment. Thomas, you had £82.
-What did you spend it on?
-Well, this is a little thing for Emma
because you had a bit of envy while we were walking round.
-If you'd like to take it out...
There's something else in there as well, but they were thrown in for free. This is it.
I bought the early 20th century large-size hat box. You don't see them this big.
The hat was in there with the ladies' gloves. Now I spent a measly sum of £55.
-I think that was quite a good buy with a bit of profit in it.
Well, 1900s, 1920s.
-I can tell Perry really likes this(!)
-No, I'm just intrigued. I thought it was a dustbin!
-Emma, what do you think about it?
-It's an interesting word, "interesting".
-I do like it. I'm into luggage.
-So I'm quite keen on it, actually. Well done, Tom.
Hold that thought! Meanwhile, for the audience at home, let's find out what the auctioneer thinks.
-Now, Robert, for something completely different. Let's have a look inside.
-Oh, my word.
-We've got a hat.
-And a pair of gloves.
-And you've got this tin box.
-Has the hat got anything to do with the tin box, period-wise?
-Not at all.
-Have the gloves got anything to do with the box?
-So we've got one rusty, brown-painted hat box.
Which is, I suppose, Edwardian or Victorian. Then this dandruff-y thing and the pair of gloves!
-It wouldn't have been my choice, but people do use these as bread bins, incredibly.
-Yeah, I've seen them used.
-If I tell you Thomas paid £55 for the three-in-one combo,
-what do you think about that?
-We put an optimistic £30-£40 on it so we're trying our hearts out.
-We need all the luck we can get.
-You can't ask for more than that.
I'll open this up, you chuck the contents back in. We'll jettison this. No, we won't.
-We'll put it on view.
Anyway, that's it for the Reds. Now for the Blues,
Jodie and Richard, who have gone exclusively down the silver line. First up are those clips.
-I suppose they're Scandinavian.
-I actually think they're quite fashionable.
-Yeah, Jodie found those.
-She's done well, hasn't she?
-Clever old her.
She's also been strong on the purse. I can't see a hallmark. Can you?
No, and it's such a pity because it's really nice quality. This is what we call repousse work.
It's just a delightful thing.
Look all over it, I may have done, but I can't see a hallmark anywhere.
And for that reason, sadly, we can't call it silver in the catalogue.
-What's your estimate?
-You never know.
-Could get lucky.
-I can see it making its £90.
Somebody will take a punt with it. And the last piece of silver
is this sterling stamped piece of American silver,
-the lovely extending novelty ruler pencil.
-Again, I think this is a really good, sporting lot.
-I like it.
-How much do you like it?
-Not enough you likey!
-How much have they paid?
-Well, I've been in the job a long time
-and I can't say I've ever seen one before, so maybe they've got something.
-Hope springs eternal!
In case it goes awfully wrong, let's look at the bonus buy.
Jodie is said to be stuck in traffic, so you're on your own, Richard! Are you up for this?
-I'll try to muddle on through.
-She will be here for the auction, but we must get this out of the way.
-So leftover lolly...
-You spent a magnificent £210 between you.
And you gave £90 of leftover lolly to the chief man, David Barby. What did you spend it on?
Two objects, both related.
This is an aneroid barometer from the 1950s, 1960s.
-"Lovely day for a Guinness."
You, Richard, I saw you shopping and you were buying jugs with various stout labels.
I did buy a jug with a beer label, yeah. I did.
So I went a little bit further and bought, on their original card, all the Guinness buttons.
-So there we have the buttons.
Gentlemen would take these off and put them onto their waistcoat.
-What we need to know, David, is what you spent.
-For the lot? For the two?
-It's quite good. I'm quite confident on the buttons alone for that.
For the audience at home, let's find out what the auctioneer thinks about David's collection of Guinness.
-Well, Robert, the barometer is set fair.
-It is. "A lovely day for a Guinness." They did great stuff,
-promoting their products.
-And then we've got these buttons.
I've just had a thought. These would make terrific cufflinks.
-They're rather nice. Really unusual.
-What's your estimate?
-£50 paid by the Barby.
-Might get away with it.
-He's taking a punt.
-Or a drink.
We'll find out in a minute. Thank you, Robert.
230. 240? 230 it's at.
At 230. 230. The bid's there at £230.
-Perry, Emma, feeling nervous?
It's a dodgy old business. We have a lovely full saleroom.
Let's hope we get some decent results, but you never really know.
-It can go either way.
-Yeah. Yeah. We didn't sleep last night.
We're delighted to have our celebrities with us today! Give them a round of applause.
We've got Perry and Emma, who you might know better as Billy and Honey.
Look - they're here! APPLAUSE

Overall, you are minus £78, which might still be a winning score!
-You never know.
MUSIC: EastEnders theme
Thankfully, Jodie has arrived and is ready for the auction.
Surely they can beat the EastEnders' score?
-Now, Richard and Jodie, do you know how the Reds got on?
-No, I don't. Are you going to tell us?
-It's a secret.
It will affect whether you go with your bonus buy or not.
-Anyway, the first lot is the clip-on earrings.
-Here we are!
# Who will buy this wonderful morning? #
That's it now! Buy them! Thank you.
Thank you very much, Jodie!
And, of course, we've got Richard O'Brien just hiding there. A most modest man.
He wrote the Rocky Horror Show.

Marvellous. Absolute pleasure. I did the Time Warp!
He did! He put his hip out!
-With the Zimmer frame!
So, off we go.

So, overall, you are plus £75.
What are you going to do about the Guinness stuff? Are you going to risk your £75 by going with it?
Are you going to stick? Or do you twist and risk £50?
-I think we stick with the profit.
-Don't you think so?
-I can't pass comment.
-You're not allowed to say.
-It's a tough one.
Right. We're not going with the bonus buy. We'll sell it anyway.

-This is a secret.
-# Let's do the Time Warp again! #
Well, thank you, generous bidders of Nantwich, for a great day with our celebrities.
Well, well, what fun we've had today! Hasn't this been fun?
-Have you teams been talking about the score? You haven't? Fine.
So I have to reveal, sadly, that there is a chasm lying between our teams today.
-The runners-up are...
Which is acutely bad luck for you guys, I have to say. You have all my sympathy.
-That saleroom was not kind to you today.
-No! It was not.
-But I hope you had a nice time.
-A great time.
-And we loved having the EastEnders on.
I can't tell you how much fun it's been. Thank you very much.
But the victors today with £75...!
-Thank you kindly.
-It could have been more with the bonus buy as suggested by your hero, David Barby,
but nevertheless the decision was made and you are £75 up and that is brilliant.
I have to thank our teams particularly for joining us today
for this particularly special programme.
Thank you so much. In fact,
why don't you all join us again soon for some more bargain-hunting! Yes?

Some famous faces go bargain hunting in a special edition of the antiques challenge. The West End is pitted against the East End, because scouring the stalls with Thomas Plant are EastEnders actor Perry Fenwick, aka Billy Mitchell, and Emma Barton, who played his on-screen wife Honey. And David Barby teams up with Richard O'Brien, writer and star of The Rocky Horror Show, and Jodie Prenger, winner of talent competition I'd Do Anything.
