My wife told Channel 4 bosses about the 'junk' in my garden shed – holding onto it all seriously paid off | The Sun

A FIND It, Fix It, Flog It guest proved that hoarding "junk" can pay off after discovering a small fortune in their home.

Hosts Henry Cole and Simon O'Brien travel across the UK to find unique items lost in people's homes to fix up for a profit.

Guest Bill Aldridge from Norfolk, who specialises in house clearances, appeared Channel 4 show, hoping to sell some items for a profit.

His wife spotted an advert on social media for the programme and told producers about the sheds and barns at the bottom of Bill's garden.

Last October, the presenters picked the four items from Bill's shed to take away and restore.

They took an old chicken trough, a motorcycle lamp and some metal chairs.

Bill said: "I've got loads of stuff in my shed because I do the clearances and they came and took a corner desk and refurbished it.

"They took an old chicken trough and turned it into a heater, a motorcycle lamp and turned it into a home lamp and some metal chairs which they powder coated and made them look amazing.

"It was a really nice day and great to have them down here having a look round."

A few weeks, Bill discovered that his items had sold for a profit of £540.

He added: "Normally you'd go up to the studio and they'd tell you how much you've made, but because of Covid they came to me.

"They filmed my reaction and I didn't think they'd make much, maybe £200, so when they said over £500, I couldn't believe it.

"I've got quite a bit of quirky stuff because I clear out pubs among other things, but I didn't expect those items to make all that."
