The skin-tight trousers and jacket worn by Olivia Newton-John in the finale of Grease are to go under the hammer.

In the scene, Newton-John's character Sandy dances to You're The One That I Want at a funfair with Danny Zuko, played by John Travolta.

The couple are finally back together following the classic will they/won't they storyline.

The jacket and trousers – which the actress had to be sewn into – are among more than 200 costumes, gowns, accessories and personal items owned and used by her to be auctioned for the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness and Research Centre.

Newton-John, 70, revealed earlier this year that she had been diagnosed with cancer for the third time.

The items are expected to fetch between $100,000 and $200,000 (£79,000 and £158,000).

From the film Xanadu, there will be some custom-made cream thigh-high suede western boots.
