Sir Rod, 73, who was knighted in 2016, is famous for such hits as Maggie May, Sailing and Do Ya Think I’m Sexy?

The singer, who has a house in Sheering, near Harlow, auctioned off 38 items at Sworders’ Fine Art in Stansted Mountfitchet, Essex.

A pair of Victorian leather armchairs were the most popular items, with the hammer coming down at £7,600.

The auction had originally been expected to raise up to £40,000.
