37-year-old Eileen De Bont, from St Asaph, Denbighshire, is putting her name up on eBay as a Children in Need stunt. The winning bidder gets to choose her name, so if David Beckham wants a bit of positive PR, he could put in a massive bid and have the poor lady renamed to VICTORIA IS LOVELY for the next year.

The kind-hearted MILF told The Telegraph “It’s all very silly but I’m deadly serious about changing it. I’ll even call myself Scunthorpe Travelodge if it’s the winning bid, so watch out Paris Hilton.”

If you look at the auction itself, you’ll see that only half of the final sale value is going to Children in Need – and the auction’s already up to £1000. So Eileen’s already at least £500 up and will probably get to be on the telly next to Terry Wogan. The lucky cow.
