Personal items belonging to actress Farrah Fawcett are set to go under the hammer. The Heritage Auctions sale, to be held in Dallas, Texas on Friday (06Dec13), features items from Fawcett's private and professional life which were passed down to her nephew, Gregory Walls, following the actress' death from cancer in 2009. Among the lots, which are expected to fetch tens of thousands of dollars collectively, are the star's 1980 passport and 2009 driver's licence, as well as the red swimsuit she wore in Esquire Magazine in 1995, and a number of scripts. The most highly valued items in the collection are a People's Choice Award won by the Charlie's Angels star in 1977, which has already attracted Internet bids of more than $5,000 (£3,333), and a custom-made director's chair emblazoned with Fawcett's initials that is valued at around $6,000 (£4,000). A spokesperson for the auction house says, "Though Farrah Fawcett will forever be associated with the 1970s and that famous, famous hair 'do of hers, she remains a beloved, respected instantly recognisable Hollywood star just as much today." Online bidding closes on Thursday (05Dec13) ahead of the live sale in Dallas on Friday (06Dec13).
