Soap star Gary Lucy has some of Madonna’s old rugs stored in his father’s garage after accidentally buying them at auction.

The Hollyoaks actor called the carpets his “biggest waste of money” and admitted he had been trying to bid for Paul Weller’s guitar, but got confused between lots.

He told The Sun: “The biggest waste of money I ever spent was on Madonna’s rugs – I bought them at a charity auction.

“I thought I was buying Paul Weller’s signed guitar.

“I came back into the room just as they mentioned that as the next lot, so I eagerly put my hand up but it wasn’t for the guitar – now I’ve got Madonna’s rugs rolled up in my dad’s garage.”

Lucy is returning to his Hollyoaks role as Luke Morgan after 15 years away from the village, but said that he was still terrible at learning lines.

He said: “My Hollyoaks cast members would say my most annoying habit is forgetting my lines.

“I’ve got a memory like a sieve.

“If there are any script amendments and I’ve learned it one way, then good luck trying to get me to learn it another way.”
