Sir Rod Stewart, 75, joined forces with Chris Evans, 54, to help raise money for the NHS amid the coronavirus pandemic. Today, the singer caught up with the host to discuss the items he gave up for the auction.
Rod, thanks so much, I really appreciate it
At first, Rod began by telling listeners that he and his wife Penny Lancaster rummaged around the house to find items of worth to sell.
He then informed fans that a Celtic shirt he put in the auction was the only one signed by him.
Rod also kindly put his Cartier watch up for sale, which he bought in the early stages of his marriage to Penny.
Giving background about his watch, the singer added: ”I think I told you I bought that when I met Penny back in the day when I was on holiday in the south of France.

“It’s a beauty, it’s a men’s watch, it’s a summer watch, it’s white. And everybody has seen it because I wear it so much on stage.”
“Rod, thanks so much, I really appreciate it,” Chris replied.
The Maggie May hitmaker added: “I’ve got lots of other stuff if you want it,” which prompted a stunned Chris to reply: “Woah!”
The host then informed Rod that his watch was currently at a bidding of £6,000.
Chris and his team set up the auction to sell unwanted items to help NHS frontline workers amid the pandemic.
The presenter put forward items such as an Olympic torch from the London Games in 2012 and the front wing of the late James Hunt’s car.
Chris had previously told listeners he and his family had rediscovered the items in their garage.
At the time, he said: “Today we start our family Evans garage sale for the NHS.
