Abz Love, formerly of UK boyband sensation 5ive, is selling his BRIT Award on eBay in order to buy some soil. Yes, that is a real sentence. 

Taking to eBay, he asks fans to "take advantage of my poverty" so that he can purchase "topsoil and maybe some garden tools".

With no reserve, the starting price for the trophy for BRIT Awards 2000 Best Pop Newcomer does have some damage. "Has been dropped and knocked a few times and is currently being used as a door stop," reads the description, but on the plus side it "has been held by Jason Statham although I can not prove this."

What are you waiting for? Go buy a piece of pop history. 

Abz has developed quite the greenfinger, since appearing on BBC2's Abz On The Farm - where he moved smallholding in Wales, to adopt a cheaper, more rural lifestyle away from the constant glamour and insanity that he must have been experiencing in London. 

  • Britney Spears' farts: Perhaps one of the weirdest and most disgusting pieces that has ever been up for sale on eBay, a seller opened a bidding war for tupperware box preserving Britney's noxious gases. In the end it sold for $2,700

  • Elvis' hair: The iconic rock and roll legend has had clippings of his hair sold numerous times to bizarre fans, most recently by hairdresser Homer Gilleland who sold the parts of Elvis he'd preserved for $4,160.

  • John Lennon's tooth: This rather odd piece of Beatles memorabilia was bought by the even stranger Dr. Michael Zuk for $23,000 with the intention of cloning Lennon before 2040.

  • Justin Timberlake's half eaten french toast: After NSync appeared on Z1000 in 2000, the station auctioned the item along with the fork and maple syrup that accompanied the now mouldy piece of partially chewed toast, it sold for $1,025 to a 19-year-old N Sync fan. Tasty.

  • William Shatner's kidney stone: If you ever wanted a little piece of captain Kirk to yourself then your dreams have come true as this arther painful memoir, removed by his doctor for being to big sold for $25,000.

  • Britney Spears' hair: After her breakdown an enterprising individual got their hands on the lost locks attempting to sell them on eBay who promptly shut down the bidding war due to its apparent policy of not selling human body parts.

  • Michael Jackson's underwear: With a reserve of $1,000,000 (sounds reasonable) these possibly stolen briefs belonging to Michael Jackson would complete the decor of a collectors home, that is if he is brave enough to stick them on his mantelpiece.

  • Lady Gaga's fake nail: This discarded piece of Gaga sold for $12,000 after being picked up by an enterprising member of the Aviva stadium in Dublin where a date of the Born This Way tour took place.

  • Suge Knight's underwear: This piece of unwashed clothing worn by gangster hip-hop mogul Suge Knight, went up for auction following the liquidation of Death Row records. They sold for $1, dropped from an asking price of $5.

  • MK's unwashed towel: Horrendous damp sweat rags are a must have for the kind of psycho whose shopping list includes any of the items on this list. At the moment the auction stands at 8,299 quid with four days to go.
