Antiques Roadshow viewers 'traumatised' by 'terrifying' toy rabbit – but the owner has the last laugh

ANTIQUES Roadshow viewers were left "traumatised" after a "terrifying" cuddly rabbit appeared on the show.

The red and white soft toy, from the 20s or 30s, was one of the lots on Sunday night's instalment of the beloved BBC show.


Seen wearing a pair of pink shorts and a bright blue bow around its neck, the stuffed bunny was called Oswald the Lucky Rabbit and was designed by Disney.

The owner was told that it was "really rare" to find an Oswald in such a good condition these days.

And she was stunned when she was told it was worth a tidy £2,000.

"Wow, I wasn't expecting that," she said in surprise, before adding: "I am so pleased I brought him. I can't believe how much he is worth."
