Updated 05 December 2001, 14.56
Lord of the Rings
Two exclusive tickets for the world premiere of the long-awaited Lord Of The Rings film have been sold for over 4,000.

The tickets were put up for auction on the website eBay by New Line cinema who produced the film.

Fierce

A spokeswoman for eBay told CBBC Newsround Online it's the first time tickets for a film premiere have been auctioned on the site.

Fact File
Most expensive sales
4.3million: Private jet
103,000: Lady Thatcher's handbag
5,000: Ronan Keating's leather trousers
2,500: S Club 7's stage jacket
1,550: Four signed Harry Potter books
1,020: Cliff Richard's shirt (not washed after one of his tours!)

Not even Harry Potter premiere tickets were available, although there have been lots of prop items from the films and first editions of the books up for sale.

Fierce competition produced 59 bids with the price starting at 70p. But the highest bidder offered a massive 4,286!

The package included two tickets to the world premiere in London on 10 December, plus passes to the premiere party to mingle with the stars.
