The pair will be watching the items they have bought go under the hammer from 11am.

Antiques experts Natasha Raskin and Catherine Southon are accompanying the celebrities on a road trip searching for treasures and competing to make the most money at auction with the profits going to charity.

A Peacocks spokesman said: “The salesroom has been a buzz with anticipation as we look forward to welcoming all bidders to the auction.”
