AJ Odudu stunned when man tried to sell human skeleton on The Greatest Auction
AJ Odudu was shocked when a man brought a human skeleton on 'The Greatest Auction'.
The 35-year-old presenter couldn't believe the unusual lot being flogged on the Channel 4 show as the man looked to cash in on real bones.
She told the Daily Star newspaper's Hot TV column: "This amazing guy brought in human bones... like a skeleton.
"His parents were medical professionals and they had these bones to help educate them on the human body.
"He's grown up with what he calls Mr Bones. When I saw it lying on this table in front of us ready to be sold, I was sure it wouldn't sell."
AJ admitted the "emotional" connection he had with the bones was incredible to see.
She added: "It was amazing to see how emotional he was about partying with something that to most people would seem like quite a strange object to form an attachment to.
"But for him there are so many beautiful stories that he shared with his late mother, his children and why of course he was coming to sell it."
Other items up for sale on the new show include some of Marilyn Monroe's hair, a Banksy artwork and even a pinball machine previously owned by Sir Elton John.
AJ explained: "People will literally find the most incredible things whilst doing a renovation, often under the floorboards!
"And then they find out these items are worth a lot of money."
Meanwhile, AJ has another exciting role lined up after recently being announced as the new host of ITV's upcoming 'Big Brother' revival alongside Will Best.
She said in a statement: "I’m so excited to finally be able to say that, yes: I’m hosting 'Big Brother'! I couldn't be happier.
"Following in the footsteps of some of my favourite broadcasting legends to front such an iconic show is an absolute honour - and to do it alongside my amazing friend Will is the icing on the cake.”
