S Club 7’s Paul Cattermole intended to sell his Brit Award trophy for £650.
But with three days to go, the bidding has reached a hundred times the starting amount.
Somebody has bid a whopping £66,000 for the Brit Award Paul received in 2000 for Best Newcomer.
Paul, 40, previously flogged S Club 7 memorabilia including the parka he wore in the Never Had A Dream Come True video and a Russian hat worn by Paul in the special S Club Go Wild.
However, he was never expecting the bids for his Brit award to skyrocket from £650 to £66,000 in a matter of days.
Paul listed the statuette on 5 January, but the first bid totalling £2,200 wasn’t received until 10 January. By the 11th, the bidding war had escalated to £6,000 – but 127 bids later, it’s closing in on £70k.
The Don’t Stop Movin’ singer updated his eBay to share his amazement at the offers – and, kindly, he’s agreed to waive the £5 postage fee.
He wrote: ‘I didn’t expect it too skyrocket like this . I am watching every bid very closely and the vast majority of people have huge feedback. Some in the thousands. If there are some silly bids at the end on Monday I will be deleting them and/or coming strait down the line to the next bidder. So you can bid with full confidence.
‘Plus, this does change the travel distance for the meet and greet and make it much larger. Postage can now be ignored. I will cover the full cost of postage with the most secure carrier. Ask me for details.’
Paul had previously promised a meet and greet for the winning bidder, if they wanted it.
The Brit is described as 13.25 inches in height, with Paul writing: ‘It hasn’t been professionally polished, there are smudges that won’t come out without a pro polish. There are signs of age. Where the arms meet the shoulders at the back, and where the neck and chest blend into the top of the dress. An indentation on the inside of the helmet. That is a casting bubble and has always been there.’h3">

Cattermole left S Club 7 in 2002, forcing them to continue on as a six-piece until they disbanded the following year.
Paul reunited with S Club in 2014, going on tour in 2015.
He and Hannah Spearitt rekindled their romantic relationship the same year after ending their five-year relationship in 2006, but the pair split in November 2015.
