Further details

Joe Lycett, the comedian, author of humorous complaint letters, and the performer of an Edinburgh Fringe show called That's the Way A-ha A-ha Joe Lycett, offers a half-folded towel. This is because he watched videos of a woman named Maria folding towels and this gives him "brain tingles".

Tom Shakespeare, a sociologist at the University of East Anglia who worked for five years at the World Health Organisation, and a man who once used the word "antidisestablishmentarianism" correctly on Question Time, provides a rolling armchair, a type of wheelchair belonging to Georges Couthon, a French lawyer and revolutionary. It is to show how wheelchairs have progressed.

Konnie Huq, the longest-running female presenter on Blue Peter, and world record holder for among other things starring in the world's fastest panto and the world's fastest duvet change, gives the Museum a Blue Peter badge. She is the only presenter not to have a gold badge because she lost one, and eBay stops people from selling them on.
