However, when it came to a Great Exhibition pipe, the Antiques Road Trip expert did not have all the luck in the world on his side.
The pipe was bought by Tim for £15 and Irita told him he couldn’t “really lose” as it was a great item for auction.
“It’s in a nice condition so I can’t possibly lose,” the expert said as his co-star added: “It’s good it has a name on it.”
Though, when not many bids came in, the auctioneer was ready to cut it off at £15 and Irita declared: “Stop, we don’t like short and sweet.”
Breaking even with the pipe, Tim told his co-star: “Got to look at the positives here,” to which she added: “You deserve so much more than that.”
Antiques Road Trip airs weekdays at 4:30pm on BBC One.
