The Maggie May singer, who was knighted at Buckingham Palace in October 2016, is selling property locally in Essex and, in need of a good old fashioned sort out, approached the Sworders Fine Art Auctioneers in Stansted Mountfitchet with his collection of antique and decorative furnishings.

Rod and his wife Penny Lancaster have been trying to sell their former home in Essex – complete with full-size football pitch, swimming pool, tennis courts and boating lake – for two years. They have shaved £1.5m off the asking price to £5m, but have no takers yet.

With estimates in the collection ranging from £60-£3,000, fans of the artist, who releases his 30th studio album “Blood Red Roses” on the 28 September, could now be in with a chance to own their very own piece of rock star memorabilia.

The collection of over 60 lots includes a pair of gilt bronze-mounted side tables, estimated at £2,000-3,000, a teak lounge armchair, with a cane back and a faux leopard print cushion, estimated at £250-£350, a pair of late 19th century pier mirrors, estimated at £2,000-£3,000 and a set of four gilt bronze two-branch wall lights, estimated at £800-£1,200.
