Series 2 Summary
From memorabilia to taxidermy and art to antiques, more members of the public visit the Four Rooms to sell their prized possessions, hoping to walk away with a fortune.
But to do so, they have to work out when to sell and when to see the next dealer, because once they leave a room the offer is off the table for good.
Feisty new buyer Celia Sawyer joins original dealers Jeffrey Salmon, Andrew Lamberty and Gordon Watson for the second series.
Can the chair on which JK Rowling wrote Harry Potter, the original music score for Psycho, artwork by Marlon Brando, Francis Bacon's paint brushes or an antique dildo make their owners rich?
Can a dress worn by Amy Winehouse, a bottle of champagne signed by the Ashes-winning cricket team, a waxwork autopsy, a slice of the Queen and Prince Phillip's wedding cake, or Kate Middleton's car make their owners a life-changing sum of money?
Can tiles featured on the Beatles' Abbey Road album cover, original artwork from Reservoir Dogs, Ku Klux Klan costumes or Richard Burton's fur coat earn their owners life-changing money?
The dealers get a chance to bid for Katie Price and Peter Andre's wedding carriage, paintings by the Kray twins, Dracula author Bram Stoker's desk and artwork by Damien Hirst.
Can Napoleon's death mask, a pair of woolly mammoth tusks, a giant Polaroid by Bob Carlos Clarke or a 1920s chandelier earn their owners life-changing sums of money?
This episode features a wallet made from the skin of the hand of notorious Edinburgh bodysnatcher William Burke; and a 19th-century Nepalese witchdoctor's outfit complete with spirit catcher and ritual dagger, given directly to the seller by a Shaman family.
Plus a graduation artwork by young British artist Jake Chapman, which the seller bought in the 1980s for just £50; and a giant elephant-bird egg - 180 times larger than a hen's egg, it was laid by the biggest bird that ever lived.
The dealers bid for six original dresses made by the late Alexander McQueen, including a design piece for Sarah Jessica Parker; a bespoke gold Rolex watch made for the Sultan of Oman containing 300 diamonds and 27 rubies; a boxing glove worn by Muhammad Ali; and a shocking artwork depicting the gates of Auschwitz, which the artist claims is made partly from the gold teeth of Holocaust victims.
This episode features Winston Churchill's gold dentures, which were designed to preserve the lisp made famous by his rousing speeches during the Second World War; a chastity belt that the seller believes dates back to the 16th century; an enormous modern rocking library; prison artwork by Britain's most notorious prisoner Charles Bronson, being sold by one of his pen pals; three 19th-century Viennese erotic bronzes; and artwork made from US dollar bills by celebrity tattooist Scott Campbell.
