Last night’s Bucket trail auction saw all 70 Oor Wullie statues go off to new homes.
Prices for the unique sculptures which were dotted around Dundee ranged from £6,500 to tens of thousands of pounds.
The Oor Original Sculpture, which was placed at the City Quay, went for the highest fee.
Garreth Wood, son of oil tycoon Sir Ian Wood, paid a jaw-dropping £50,000 for the cheeky wee scamp.
Bids started off at £10,000 before quickly rising. It looked set to go for £45,000 before a last-second bid by Mr Wood.
That figure couldn’t be matched and it was sold to rapturous applause from the audience.
The loudest cheer of the evening was saved for the end. The audience rose to its feet when it was announced that an incredible £883,000 was raised.
Watch the moment below and the dramatic Oor Original bid at the top of the page.
