Hansons will auction 12 lots at their Etwall site for Children in Need as the stars of Strictly Come Dancing try their hand as Bargain Hunt contestants.

The auction will be aired live online at 12.15pm on July 25, with the recorded footage being transmitted as part of the Autumn fundraiser.

The lots have been picked from a local fair by Strictly Come Dancing stars, including Erin Boag and Anton du Beke, and will also include the specially decorated Bargain Hunt blue and red fleeces coated in sequins that they wore, together with other Bargain Hunt signed souvenirs.

A spokesperson said: “We are excited to be welcoming stars of both shows to our antiques saleroom and amongst the usual theatre and drama of an auction, we look forward to dancing in the aisles – maybe a foxtrot, a quickstep, or even a soft shoe shuffle from auctioneer Charles Hanson himself!”

The charity lots will kick off a three day July Antiques and Collectors Auction which runs from July 25 to 27. People can also bid on charity lots via the special website.
