Episode 3 of 8

Series exploring the weird and wonderful world of Britain's collectors. The team meet a man who has filled seven flats with his CD collection and spends £150 a day on them.

In this episode, Jasmine and Mark meet a man who is crazy for teddy bears. Teddies are a huge part of Jena's life and are like members of the family, and he does not care what anyone thinks about it! He has hundreds of bears, from Steiff antiques to custom-made ones. However, he lives with his mum, who doesn't even like them! Jena has spent a fortune over the years, but he has now had to make the agonising decision to sell some of them as he is relocating to Hong Kong.

Next, Mark visits retired professional drummer Alan, who has spent 30 years collecting vintage drums from all over the world, and they are crammed everywhere in his one-bedroom flat. It's an amazing collection, but they are all hidden away, unable to be played. He's realised that he can't keep them for ever, so Mark encourages him to start playing them again before he sells them off.

Finally, Jasmine meets a man who had gone to extreme lengths to house his vast collection of CDs. Roy has not only filled his flat, but has bought six adjacent flats and filled them too. Jasmine visits this maze of CDs to try and find out what drives him to collect in this extreme way. Spending £150 a day on CDs, he has four people help curate his collection - but neither he nor they have any idea why he does it!
