The sale, which is being held at Savile Hall in Leeds, comes following the Top of the Pops star's dying wish for his lifetime of fundraising to continue after he departed. It is estimated that Savile raised over 40m ($62m) for charity during his glittering career. The auction's biggest draw will be undoubtedly be provided by the famous red chair which Savile sat in for his best known show, Jim'll Fix It. Estimated at 8,000-12,000, the chair is now in poor condition, with wearing and tears revealing its almost20 years in the spotlight. Representing Savile's renowned fondness for all that glitters is a gold and diamond encrusted Rolex watch, which is due to raise up to 12,000. Also starring is Savile's Rolls-Royce convertible - dubbed The Beast - which is estimated at 90,000, though fans may prefer his yellow BMW Isetta bubble car, which will auction at the bargain price of just 5,000-8,000. With his charity trustees eager for fans to own a piece of Sir Jimmy's legacy at an affordable price, several smaller lots have also been included in the auction. Collectors will be able to bid on a myriad of coloured string vests, which are aimingto bring80-150, while Savile's trademark cigars will sell for 30 each. Paul Fraser Collectibles has a stunning range of affordable celebrity memorabilia here.
