Bargain Hunt auctioneer rips into 'most awful item' ever seen on show in excruciating scenes | The Sun
A BARGAIN Hunt auctioneer ripped into the 'most awful item' ever seen on the show in excruciating scenes.
In an episode that aired on Sunday, presenter Charlie Ross and two teams headed to Nottingham racecourse to try and find items that would make money at auction.
Bargain Hunt's red and blue teams had one hour and £300 cash to buy three items to put under the hammer.
Each team had the help of an antiques expert, but it wasn't enough to stop Wendy and David on the red team buying one of the worst items ever seen on the show.
All the items were taken to Hansons Auctioneers in Etwall near Derby, with Charlie discussing each one before the auction with auctioneer Charles Hanson.
Charlie said: "Now the first offering from Wendy and David is.. this" before pointing to a 70s style stool at the far side of the table.

Both men grimaced and pulled faces before Charles said: "It's one of the most awful objects I've ever seen."
He added sarcastically: "It's got that beautiful foam-covered top."
Charlie replied: "You can't sell foam can you?"
Charles said: "No, we can't. We've got to be legal and safe. Of course the top is foam filled. We cannot sell the top with the base legally in the saleroom.

"So the top comes off and we sell the structure underneath which again is white and maybe late 1970s.
"But it's got style, Charlie and that is what will sell this decorative art today."
When it came to the auction time, Charles' prediction turned out to be right, as it sold for just £15, leaving the red team with a £5 loss having bought it for £20.
Bargain Hunt airs on BBC One and is available on BBC iPlayer.
