I made a bid for an upgrade from Economy to premium Economy of £50 per seat and have been charged over £300 additional per seat for outbound and I am wondering whether its my error or theirs

I may be wrong but I think I remember £300 being the minimum you could bid for the upgrades - it was a year ago so I may be remembering it wrong but there was a slide bar to decide the amount of money but I'm sure there was a minimum bid

£300+ seems a reasonable amount for an upgrade to PE. £50 is a ridiculously low amount.

Whether or not you consider it too low in any auction a bid is a bid ........Ebay is a good example and also any Auctioneer would confirm this point
