Sir Jimmy Savile's gold suits, Cuban cigars and beloved Rolls-Royce will go on sale as the late DJ's belongings go up for auction.

Thousands of items of memorabilia owned by the broadcaster and Top of the Pops host will be sold to go towards his charitable trust.

His trademark tracksuits and jewellery, including a £12,000 gold and diamond encrusted Rolex watch, gold identity bracelet and rings, will all go under the hammer along with the first ever chair from his Jim'll Fix It TV show.

A tireless charity worker, Sir Jimmy is thought to have raised more than £40 million for good causes in his lifetime.

He died just before his 85th birthday last year and requested his belongings be sold for charity after his death.

His immaculate 2002 Rolls-Royce Corniche convertible, which has just 4,420 miles on the clock, carries a conservative sale estimate of £60,000 to £90,000.

The DJ nicknamed his beloved car The Beast, and it still bears his personal registration number, JS 247.

The entire auction is estimated to raise up to £300,000.

The auction will take place at the Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds.
