    Another batch of 10,000 was then released which also sold out within minutes.

    The sales have raised about £140,000 for Dame Deborah’s Bowelbabe Fund for Cancer Research UK – with total donations soaring past £6.4million.

    The 40-year-old, who is receiving end-of-life care for stage four bowel cancer, told The Sun: ‘I can’t believe how quickly it sold out. I am blown away yet again. The charity T-shirt is just a sneak peek but I am so proud.’

    Dame Deborah, whose memoir topped Amazon’s bestsellers chart this week, said her clothing collection will also include the dress she wore when Prince William presented her damehood.
