Gerry Watkins, founder of the Big Yellow Bus Project, a charity which helps rough sleepers in Cirencester, revealed that the car is up for sale in the area. 

He said: “It’s a low mileage car and in very tidy condition and it’s only a bit dusty.

“It comes with all the paperwork proving that it was in both tv shows and is still sought-after for tv work.”

The Ford is valued between £10,000 to £15,000.

The owner will also be donating some money from the sale of the vehicle to Gerry’s Big Yellow Bus Project charity.
