Savile's treasure trove to be auctioned
A trove of treasures belonging to late TV star Sir Jimmy Savile is set to go under the hammer at auction.
The presenter's cars, jewellery, cigars, furniture and vintage cars will all be up for grabs, with profits benefiting the Jimmy Savile Charitable Trust.
Savile's Rolls-Royce Corniche - the last one produced in Britain - is expected to fetch as much as £200,000, while his restored BMW Isetta could top £10,000 at the auction, planned for June.
Auctioneer Gary Don says, "This could all fetch a small fortune. Sir Jimmy has got some fantastic and unique pieces of gold. He had some incredible belongings."
The TV host, famed for his wish-granting series Jim'll Fix It, passed away at the age of 84 in October, and left the majority of his £4.3 million fortune to charity.
