Not strictly Tesla related but...... transferring cherished plates

I currently have a private plate on my car however I have now won the one that I had been after for a while as it came up on a DVLA auction.
I have received the retention certificate and had the plates made up, normally it would be a case of just assigning the new plate to the car but I already have a private plate on it so if I do that won't I just lose the current cherished plate?
My thought is that I will have to pay the £80 to remove the current plate, wait for the new V5 to arrive and then assign the new cherished plate, is that correct?
If so then it seems a little long winded but I can't see any other way of doing it if I want to keep the rights to both plates.

Anyone know any different?

That is what I thought, well the original cherished plate was cheap so rather than pay the £80 to keep it and then eventually maybe get around £100-£150 for it I just put the new one on and gave up the rights to the other.
