The comedian, reality TV star, presenter, model and pop star bargain with punters in a bid to sell their unwanted items to raise cash for charity.

Episode one follows I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here star Joe Pasquale who can be seen mid-episode buying two of his own DVDs from another seller.

Channel 4 originally commissioned 20 half-hour episodes of Star Boot Sale.
