Blog: ‘Quirky’ or just revolting?

Catherine Sleep | 16 July 2004

A half-eaten banana has been auctioned on Ebay for £1,650. Now this really is bananas.

Kate Garraway, a GMTV breakfast show presenter, ate half of the banana and then offered it for auction on Ebay, apparently inspired by a studio discussion on the occasionally eccentric items sold on the popular auction site.

An amazing 45 people bid for the rotten fruit, which will now go on display in the successful bidder’s office “to generate a bit more fun".

It’s madness, is it not? But hey, it’s for ‘charidee’, so that’s okay.
