Celebs and their hoarding habits – board games, bugs, knives and model trains

Christopher Biggins has confessed to having such a mammoth collection of glasses he had special drawers built to house them.

The panto favourite and I’m A Celebrity winner, 72, claims at one point he had almost 500 pairs.

But he will be relieved to know he’s not the only celebrity collector with a habit for hoarding as Daily Star discovers.

Quentin Tarantino: The Hollywood director loves pop culture and has a hankering for board games.

His favourites include Dawn of the Dead and Universe, which he branded “the closest they ever came to an official 2001: A Space Odyssey game”.

Tarantino organises his games by genre and once said he would like to play Platoon with Oliver Stone, who directed the famous Vietnam war movie.

Claudia Schiffer: The German supermodel is a huge fan of creepy crawlies and has so many insects in her home collection it’s been branded a minibeast museum.

She is particularly into spiders, and has beetles and butterflies framed on her walls and a hefty collection of encyclopaedias on insects.

In her living room there’s even a huge piece of art, made from insect bodies – which must surely be off-putting when watching the telly.
