Paul Cattermole’s S Club 7 BRIT Award back on eBay after sale falls through

I know many of you wept when you missed out on acquiring the 2000 Best Newcomer BRIT Award currently owned by S Club 7’s Paul Cattermole. You can dry your tears though, because he’s been stiffed on the payment, meaning it’s back up for sale on eBay again.

Cattermole recently told the NME that he’d put the trophy up for sale on the auction site in order to pay off some bills racked up after he’d sustained an injury during a performance of ‘The Rocky Horror Show’ last year.

The sale had raised over £66,000, which surprised Cattermole as much as anyone. He did express some concern that it had been sold to a fan who lives on the other side of the world, because he’d said that he would hand deliver it. But it turns out he may have misidentified who the buyer was anyway, because it doesn’t sound like they’re that much of a fan.

“Well, I am gutted that the winning bidder was total time waster”, he wrote on Twitter, announcing the new sale. “He just wanted to wreck my sale. Grab yourself a bargain! Everyone thinks it’s sold!”

Actually, second round bidding is already up to £61,400, so not that much of a bargain. Cattermole adds that he would prefer that “no time wasters” take part in the bidding this time around.

After the original sale, Cattermole put his other BRIT Award up for auction – the 2002 Best Single trophy – which sold for just under £66,000. No word yet if that sale’s also fallen through, but maybe keep your eye out. Maybe that could be your bargain.
