Responsive image

Sporting giants Henry Cooper and Geoff Capes vie to be champ when they meet each other in an auction saleroom for Bargain Hunt Famous Finds. Henry, accompanied by his eldest son, Henry Jnr, takes on the might of Geoff and his partner, Kashi. They sell items bought at an antique centre in upmarket Chelsea. The two teams are guided along the way by antiques experts James Lewis and James Braxton. Among the items Geoff and Kashi select are an unusual pill or patch box and the Henrys pick out a rare flask with a telescopic silver lid which converts into a drinking cup. During the shopping Presenter Tim Wonnacott takes time out to talk to Henry Cooper about some boxing memorabilia. Henry has brought along the first trophy he ever won, when he was just nine years old. Champion shot putter, Geoff Capes, twice winner of the World's Strongest Man title, has a surprising interest - he collects porcelain birds. Capes is President of the British Budgerigar Society and is shown a Royal Worcester budgerigar made by one of the top bird designers, Fred Gertner. At the auction both teams find plenty to smile about, but who proves to be the ultimate bargain hunting champion?
