AN abandoned scrap book became the star of the show on Cash in the Attic after selling at auction for an astonishing £140.
Cheshire couple JoJo and Belle welcomed host Chris Kamara and appraiser Kayleigh Davies into their home for the latest episode of the Channel 5 revival.
As part of their plan to raise funds for a local food shelter, JoJo and Belle were delighted to welcome the team into their home to have a rummage around their possessions to see if anything was worth flogging.
After searching around, the four of them were stunned to come across what would go onto become a rather profitable find.
JoJo showed Kayleigh a scrap book she had discovered dumped in a skip.
The memory-filled book was organised carefully with captions and dates and JoJo admitted she could not bear to throw away someone’s precious memories.

JoJo said: “These meant something to someone and I just had to bring them home with. I have no idea who they are!”
Kayleigh inspected the photo album and admitted she believed it to be of 1950s origin and being to a middle class family from that time as a result of the locations and quality of the photographs.
The couple ended up taking the scrapbook to auction and were left stunned by how much it managed to raise.
Standing nervously alongside Chris and Kayleigh, Belle let out an audible gasp when the auctioneer began the bidding and the money kept on going up.

The show was recently revived by Channel 5 following 10 years off air, after previously being a BBC favourite.
At the time of announcing the new series, a Channel 5 source told The Sun: “Of course, Kammy brings his own charm to proceedings, but fans of the original show will find lots that they recognise in the new version.
“If it’s not broke, don’t fix it, so the reboot has simply been refreshed.”
Cash in the Attic airs at 6pm weekdays on Channel 5.
