Kylie competition hots up as Bolton’s bid is beaten

Michael Bolton’s £4,500 bid to win front row tickets to a Kylie concert has been knocked off the top spot just a day before the auction closes.

The £10,000 bid from The Money Group’s managing director Tony Murtagh came in just one day before the competition is due to close, and is more than double the edeus chief executive’s offer.

The tickets to see the Australian sing perform at Wembley arena on Friday January 5 are being auctioned off to the highest bidder by Solent Mortgage Services in association with Mortgage Strategy on behalf of the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children.

The bidding began at £1,500 two weeks ago on November 13, but was topped a week later with the £4,500 bid from Bolton.

But with the latest bid knocking Bolton off the top spot, and with just a day to go before bidding ends, it remains to be seen whether he will retaliate or another lucky mortgage personality will snap up the chance to dance the night away just meters away from the pert-bottomed star.

Ian Balfour, sales and marketing director at SMS, says: “Can you afford to miss this once in a lifetime opportunity?”
