Million Pound Pawn
Sarah Beeny’s Little Home, Huge Plans
You need to really feel sorry for our expensive previous Phil Collins. For no apparent motive, whereas his contemporaries have matured into nationwide treasures, he’s change into a little bit of a joke.
It doesn’t matter that his first solo hit, In The Air Tonight, is arguably the best single of the 1980s.
And nobody remembers that he flew from London to Philadelphia to play at Reside Assist twice, or that he gained an Oscar for his final massive hit, You’ll Be In My Coronary heart.
Queen opened the present at Buckingham Palace final Saturday. Elton, Macca, Cliff, Rod, Mick and the remainder are all knights. But one way or the other, Phil Collins is only a punchline. What has he finished so incorrect?
When supplier Dan, from Sheffield, was supplied a gold watch on the market on Million Pound Pawn (ITV), he joked that it had been devalued by Phil’s signature on the leather-based strap. ‘I don’t know if I would like Phil Collins on my wrist,’ he complained
It’s true that You Can’t Hurry Love is an annoyingly jaunty quantity, however absolutely, as rock ’n’ roll crimes go, it’s not as dangerous as David Bowie’s Nazi salute.
When supplier Dan, from Sheffield, was supplied a gold watch on the market on Million Pound Pawn (ITV), he joked that it had been devalued by Phil’s signature on the leather-based strap. ‘I don’t know if I would like Phil Collins on my wrist,’ he complained.
Perhaps Phil can take consolation from the truth that Dan has no style and is pleased with it.
That’s how he makes his dwelling. ‘I’m a educated magpie,’ he stated, ‘and I’m searching for shiny issues.’ In Marbella, he had taken to a yellow 1961 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II, purchased as a rust bucket for ten grand by a automobile specialist, who chopped the roof off and turned it right into a gleaming convertible.
Dan discovered a collector who was prepared to pay £290,000. That’s ridiculous.
Not way back, a clapped-out Curler was good for nothing however being dumped right into a swimming pool at a rock star occasion.
Not that Phil Collins ever indulged in such wild excesses. Perhaps that was his massive mistake.
Just like the gold watch and the limo, this present was all flash and no substance. We met Adam, a 28-year-old male mannequin who was reluctantly pawning his Rolex Daytona, a gift from his dad and mom.
Adam claimed he needed the cash to place a deposit on a home. I think the producers simply needed Adam and his cheekbones in entrance of the digital camera, and he was pleased to oblige.
A caption on the finish of the programme revealed that he had not purchased the home…and he’d obtained his watch again.
Each merchandise pawned on display had a really seen price ticket. This ring was value £534, that gold chain was £3,270. It have to be what pawn stars name ‘the money shot’.
Property developer Sarah Beeny was intent on discovering the value of each dwelling conversion on her Little Home, Huge Plans (C4).
In Cheadle within the North-West, the price of an extension to a half-timbered 1930s semi was £200,000. The consequence was far more area, however the exterior appeared like two transport containers — one black, one white — had been bolted to the brickwork.
Architect Damion Burrows in contrast it to a modernist artwork gallery. I’d say it appeared extra like badly stacked Lego, however maybe that’s the identical factor. I guess the neighbours are thrilled.

Sarah was busy in Wiltshire, providing recommendation on an extension to some who didn’t intend to take heed to a phrase she stated.
She was particularly eager they need to have a fitted carpet. This, she stated, would encourage Sam and Leah’s 4 teenage youngsters to take a seat on the ground.
The look Leah gave her stated fairly plainly: ‘You’re mad.’ Or, as Phil would say: There Should Be Some Misunderstanding.
Maternity ward of the evening: All the mums-to-be, mysteriously pregnant on The Midwich Cuckoos (Sky Max), went into labour and gave start on the identical day. Fairly helpful there was a hospital with dozens of empty beds, actually. Should be why property costs in that city are so excessive.
