Minnie Driver, Vernon Kay & Emma Bunton take their tops off…for Comic Relief

and dozens of other Celebrities also put RND’05 t-shirts up for auction


“Change yourself for a day to help transform someone else’s life forever” – that’s the message from Comic Relief to support Red Nose Day ’05 : Big Hair and Beyond.

Celebrities have been getting into the makeover theme for Red Nose Day (11th March) by customising and personalising RND '05 t-shirts in their own unique style. Minnie Driver's t-shirt has a square neck and puffed sleeves while Jayne Middlemiss's t-shirt has a slashed neckline to create a one-shouldered top.

Now you have the opportunity to own their fabulous t-shirts and help support Comic Relief by bidding in an online auction.

Simply go to www.tkmaxx.com to see which celebrity t-shirts you can bid on.

Each t-shirt is in auction for ten days but don't be disappointed if you miss out first time - more t-shirts will be added throughout February. Look out for dozens of celebrity creations including those from The 411, Lady Isabella Hervey, Jodie Kidd and Ulrika Jonsson.
