Chris de Burgh's wine collection has been given an antiques valuation of up to £200,000, it has been revealed.

The items are made up of 84 magnums and 320 bottles of the alcohol, mainly red wine from his private cellar.

And the Lady in Red singer revealed it is not the first time he has considered putting the items under the hammer as he as he told Harpers he first thought about it five years ago.

De Burgh added: "Looking at the economics of the wine trade and how the business of selling wine fluctuates, I decided now was the right time."

What's more, the A Spaceman Came Travelling crooner pointed out he has tried each wine that he is selling, one way or another so is fully aware on what he is letting go.

He started his collection in the 1980s but the items will go under the hammer at Christie's in London on March 24th.
