CLOSE pals Stanley Johnson and Georgia ‘Toff’ Toffolo headed to Cumbria to compete in a battle of the sexes in Celebrity Antiques Road Trip.

In last night’s episode, Stanley, the dad of PM Boris Johnson, and Toff, who found fame in Made in Chelsea, competed to find profit making antiques in the county.

The Road Trip took in Windermere, Cartmel, Coniston, Low Newton, Grange, Kendal and Kirkby Lonsdale as the celebrities and experts went antiquing in a 1966 Jaguar MKII and an orange Triumph Stag 1974.

Guiding them were top auctioneers Paul Laidlaw and Izzie Balmer. And it was girls versus boys to see who will win the most at auction.

Stanley explained he was much like an antique in comparison to his, younger, more glamorous chum Toff, remarking “I’m pretty antique - I could be an exhibit myself, and be put up for auction.”

Stanley and Paul set off with high hopes of defeating the competition and when it comes to negotiating a fair price, Mr Johnson Senior used a familiar tactic to strike a deal.

While haggling a price with owner Leonard at Dale’s Antiques in Kirkby Lonsdale, Stanley exclaimed: “We have a budget.We don’t want to walk away with no deal. We need a deal... and we don’t need a referendum on this.”

They eventually settled on a fair price for a beautiful wooden gingerbread man mould.

Toff and Izzie’s taste differed somewhat on suitable items for auction, and after Toff’s purchase of a ‘daintee laydee’ teapot and a bell which has dropped a clanger and no longer tinkles, Toff picked up an unusual piece of jewellery, and turned on the charm to haggle the last of her budget away before heading to her first ever auction.
