Bargain Hunt fleece is up on eBay for £499 and people are laughing at irony

A Bargain Hunt fleece is being sold on eBay – but ironically not for a bargain price.

The hit BBC daytime show saw teams of two battle it out to find the best bargains to flog and make a profit on.

But the ‘bargain’ merch is most likely an item they would want to stay well clear of.

Currently, a “used” Bargain Hunt fleece is being flogged on eBay for a whopping £499.00.

Adding to the expense, to get your hands on the very British relic you will have to pay an extra £9.99 postage fee.

A screenshot of the listed product was posted to Twitter account @nocontextbrits.

They sarcastically captioned the post: “Ironically that’s not a bargain.”

The red fleece can be seen hanging upon a door frame along with the recognisable Bargain Hunt logo.

If bought now, you could get your hands on the fleece in time for this weekend.

Nothing screams warmth like a red Bargain Hunt jacket after all!

Since being posted, the tweet has now racked up over 1,000 likes.

Stunned at the hefty price tag, many people fled to the comments to have their say on the non-bargain, Bargain Hunt jacket.

One person joked: “As it's Bargain Hunt you can just offer them £25.”

Another user added: “Ironically that's a lot more than what the contestants usually make combined.”

While a third person said: “It's not a bargain and I don't suppose there will be much of a hunt either.”

Even the Mini Cheddars Twitter account had their say.

They jested: “In fact, you could say 'they're trying to fleece you'! OK, we'll be quiet.”

We wonder how much the blue team fleece would cost!
