LEONARDO DI CAPRIO is so bankable a fake bug he's touched is worth money to fans.
The TITANIC hunk plucked a fake caterpillar from a leaf and ate it in a scene from smash hit island movie THE BEACH - and is expected to fetch at least £300.
A plastic water bottle used by the star in the same film will also go under the hammer in London next month (DEC00). (NFA/WNTST/PDD)
