A man is so sick of his mother-in-law he is selling her on eBay.

Steve Owen, 42, published a photo of 50-year-old Caroline Allen under "Collectables And Weird Stuff" on the internet auction site – describing her as "used".

He has invited bids starting at just £1 reports The Sun.

He posted the ad on the site after Caroline quit her home of 27 years in America and bought a house round the corner from him and common-law wife Tracey, 35, in Alvaston, Derby.

Steve said: "I’m deadly serious. She comes to the house every day trying to change me and make me tidy.

"I just hope someone will take her off my hands. She’s single and not bad looking."

Caroline hit back: "He’s lazy and I won’t stop nagging him until he changes – that’s my job. But he could have made the starting bid £100. I look better in the flesh."
