Dame Deborah James says she has been ‘blown away’ after her charity T-shirt sells out online within hours of its launch

Dame Deborah James has said she was ‘blown away’ after her charity T-shirt line sold out within hours of being launched.

The cancer campaigner, known as Bowel Babe, announced she was releasing the tops emblazoned with the motto ‘Rebellious Hope’ on Thursday as part of a new clothing range.

But fans snapped up the first 10,000 T-shirts – created with fashion brand In The Style – within one hour. 

The cancer campaigner, known as Bowel Babe, announced she was releasing the tops emblazoned with the motto ‘Rebellious Hope’ on Thursday as part of a new clothing range 

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.’
