"My grandfather brought them home one day, to the horror of my grandmother and said 'look what I've got.'"

She added how the landlord was closing down the pub and offered the whiskey's to her granddad.

They had been in the attic ever since, which John said was "not great" as there had been some evaporation and so it would affect things "a bit".

But after discussing the history of Johnnie Walker, John started to discuss the value of each bottles going by the labels.

He said: "Really you're looking at about £1,000…."

As the guest nodded, he added: "For that one" and tapped the top of the bottle with the red label.

He then moved on to the rarer white label bottles and said: "These two, the levels are low, the labelling is better on one than it is on the other, you can see there it's got a bit of damage but it's got the nice white label.

"These ones would be about £7,000."

The guest puffed her cheeks and blew air out of her mouth in shock, but then John added: "Per bottle."

She covered her mouth in shock as the public stood around her all gasped in surprise at the twist.

As she giggled, she said: "Oh wow! That's unbelievable isn't it? They've been up in the loft in a box."
