The prospect of Earl Grey and sandwiches with the disgraced peer, currently serving four years for perjury, sparked a bidding war at a charity auction last week between Emin and Drake, who came out victor with £4,500.
But Drake took pity on Emin, who won the Turner prize for her "dirty bed", and invited her along as well. Emin's own charity lot - a day with Tracey Emin - beat the Archer total and raised £5,000.
The auction was organised by Lighthouse, the London branch of the Terrence Higgins Trust. Samantha Reddin of Lighthouse said: "Our auction committee always try to put together interesting money-can't-buy lots, and this is certainly out of the ordinary."
