Cilla's eBay scheme
09:30 02 August 2006
'Coronation Street' layabout Les Battersby will be left devastated after his wife Cilla sells his beloved Status Quo record collection on eBay.
The flame-haired battleaxe, played by actress Wendi Peters, becomes addicted to the internet auction site and hatches a plan to sell off some of her family's belongings to raise some much needed cash.
At first, Les is happy to go along with Cilla's plans until he discovers the top lot is his Quo albums.
The British band famously appeared in the ITV soap and performed at the couple's farcical wedding.
Despite begging her not to flog his LPs, Les' cruel spouse tells him to stop his whinging and let go.
Cilla also decides, without consulting her husband, that she wants to sell the family's best china dinner set.
When the taxi driver, played by actor Bruce Jones, protests he is again told to shut up.
Cilla tells him: "What are we saving it for Les? You expecting the Queen to come to tea? We're going to make a bomb you and me."
As well as flogging her family's belongings, the budding internet entrepreneur also decides to buy up as much "junk" as she can find and sell it on eBay described as "vintage" goods.
