Kinda depressing that he has to sell his old awards on eBay just to survive
Abz Love from 5ive is selling his Brit Award again because the original bidder pulled out after offering £1 million for the gong.
And it's a 'buy one, get one free' deal, as Abz is throwing in his MTV Europe Music Award too.
The listing on eBay reads: "The Brit that started it all! After selling for £1 million but the deal falling through, The Brit Award for Best Pop Act awarded to Abs from 5ive in 2000 is once again up for auction.
"The first Brit Award ever to be sold on eBay, the auction was announced on Channel 5's The Wright Stuff.
"This Brit hit headlines around the world and was trending in the UK in 2015 with news and media coverage."
The eBay listing continues: "BUY 1 GET 1 FREE!!"
"Included in the sale is a free MTV Europe Music Award presented to Abs in 1998 Italy. Although it has seen better days, it still has life in it.
Boyband Five, Sean Conlon, Abz Love, Ritchie Neville, Scott Robinson, J Brown
At the time of writing, the current highest bid is £2,550 – so only £997,450 short of £1 million.
Way back in 2015, when news broke that Abz was selling his Brit Award, Digital Spy chatted to the popstar-turned-farmer and found out that he was actually being quite sensible and pragmatic.
"I've put all my money into this smallholding I've just bought and I've had to sell my Rolex and my Louis Vuitton luggage and my diamond earrings and everything I had that I thought was valuable," Abz told Digital Spy.
"The Brit Award was just staring at me, man. I'm using it as a doorstop. I was like, 'Ah man, maybe somebody will appreciate it more than I do. Let me put it on eBay and see what happens'. And it's just gone nuts!"
He added: "That's my memory and that'll always be with me. Honestly, I really do need gardening tools right now. That's more valuable in my life right now, and just moving with the times, man.
"But if it does sell for £1 million or whatever, I might hire a butler or something to do some work for me – or his 'n' hers tractors! I just needed a bit of soil and some garden tools to start with!"
It comes after former S Club 7 singer Paul Cattermole put one of his Brit Awards up for auction on the site – with the winning bid coming in at a handsome £66,000.
In fact, the whole operation was such a success, he's now putting another one of the trophies up for sale, and it's currently going for pretty much exactly the same.
It's so sad they (including Paul) are selling their awards.
I found Paul's quote to BBC tragic, tbh. He said, "When I first got given it, I remember thinking 'Ooh one day I bet I end up selling that'."
Paul, honey, who even thinks like that? Then again he also said this: "[On a 'Superfan' buying it & him delivering it to them] Can you imagine if I was going to the person's house and on every wall was a picture of me?"
This isn't 1998 anymore Paul. No one has a picture of you on their wall anymore.
