Great story! A couple from Lanarkshire have found a massive £5,000 worth of diamond jewelry stuffed inside an old chair they bought for £5 at auction years ago.

Well, actually the husband found them first after deciding to reupholster the chair which had been left rotting in the attic for 6 years. But instead of calling his wife and telling her about his amazing find he kept the stash a secret and bestowed the pieces as presents on celebratory occasions- call me a cynic, but doesnt this just mean he got out of spending money on gifts?! ;)

The whole bundle was eventually valued on Antiques Roadshow for £5,000.
