From the sublime to the ridiculous - take a look at Jeanne Little's televisual curated collection of merchandise commemorating the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer.

As well as the obligatory tea towels and crockery there's waving Charles and Di cut-outs, coat hangers and a special commemorative Rubik's Cube!

Jeanne Little was a regular guest on The Mike Walsh Show. She first appeared on the show in 1974 to plug her ailing dressmaking business. She was such a hit that they asked her back again and again and a star was born.

Her unique voice, over-the-top personality, false eyelashes and eccentric fashion sense endeared her to Australian audiences. She won a Gold Logie in 1977 for her work on The Mike Walsh Show.

She went on to star in stage and television shows such as panel show Beauty and the Beast on the Ten Network, but retired from television in the mid-2000s.
