The GoGoGorillas! were sold off for auction on Thursday night and now we want to know what animal sculpture should follow them on to the streets of Norwich.

About 500 people packed into the Forum in Norwich for the auction, all eager to see how much money the celebrity apes would make for children's charity Break – which organised GoGoGorillas! with Wild in Art – and the Born Free Foundation.

Norfolk TV presenter and Break patron Jake Humphrey was the host for the evening, and he joked that next he would like to see a trail of 65 16ft statues of Stephen Fry in Norwich or have Alan Partridges on the steps of City Hall.
