Anyone for Freddie Mercury's travel Scrabble?

Thousands of items from Freddie Mercury's personal collection are set to be up for auction next month.

Before that though, they're all on display at a huge exhibit in London, should you like to see them before they're sold off at extortionate prices!

The collection features his flamboyant costumes, a moustache comb, cat ceramics, and the piano he wrote 'We Are The Champions' on.

All of these items had been left to Freddie Mercury's close friend Mary Austin when he passed, and now she is deciding to share them with the public.

Part of the money raised will go to two Aids charities.

If you're in London over the next few weeks you can check out the exhibition at Sotheby's, with 15 galleries devoted to showcasing different aspects of Freddie Mercury's life.

The exhibition runs until the 5th of September 2023, which would have been Freddie's 77th birthday.

Tune in to World Wide Reb, weekday mornings at 8.10am on 98FM's Big Breakfast for all the latest entertainment news 🎬
