£5500 for plastic celery stick

A piece of fake celery from the Dr Who set has been sold at online auction for £5500, as part of Children In Need. The celery stick was worn by the fifth Dr Who (played by Peter Davison) who clipped it to his lapel. Bidding began on Ebay at 99p but was bought by Australian Dimity Teffer, 21, for £5500.

The Dr Who fan says: ‘I couldn’t let an opportunity like that get away from me and it’s for a great cause. I got into Doctor Who in 2005 and I’ve been hooked. Peter Davison is my favourite.’

Yes, what a great opportunity. Imagine all the things you can do with that plastic celery stick. Actually, don’t…

At least the money went to charity. Well done, Dimity.
