DAME Deborah James has revealed her next fund raising venture to help find a cure for cancer.
Since being moved to palliative care last month – the Sun writer has raised millions for charitable causes.
The Bowelbabe fund has reached £6.7million – with another £1.1million set to be added on top of that with gift aid donations.
Money from the fund will go towards helping Cancer Research UK, the Royal Marsden and Bowel Cancer UK – in order to support research into 'giving more Deborah's more time'.
Alongside the fund, Deborah has also released a fashion collection with In The Style, alongside her now iconic Rebellious Hope t-shirts.
Posting on Instagram today, she shared plans as to how the team were planning on getting to £1million from the sales of the tops.

She said: "Anyone interested in a 'men's' or whoever wants to wear it version – navy and white – very limited edition.
"Last colour offering I promise! I just want to get to £1million."
Debs then went on to ask her followers what sort of fit people would like and gave options such as over-sized, regular or slim and more stretched.
Posting on Instagram last night, the campaigner thanked everyone for sharing pictures of them wearing the t-shirts.

The mum-of-two, who has incurable bowel cancer, last week said she is taking life “day-by-day” and at a much slower pace.
She is still tirelessly campaigning and virtually cheered those on who are taking part in the Race for Life.
Over the weekend, Debs got dressed up with her husband Sebastien Bowen to watch La bohème at the venue in East Sussex.
And last night she was able to enjoy some cocktails in the sun with her brother Benjamin James.
Posting a picture of the finished result, she said: "It's the pickle juice that does it for me! Feels like a salad in a cocktail."
The mum-of-two has been enjoying the high temperatures seen across the UK over the last few days and even managed to pop out for a margarita last week.

In a visit to Beaverbrook country estate, Surrey, she said she was feeling grateful to be able to enjoy another moment of sunshine on her face and food that makes her smile.
"Just trying to find the diamond moments in the rough – but when you look hard enough you realise they can still be there," she added.
However, she told fans to be under no illusion how much effort these outing take.
"I'm knackered! I've worked out it takes me longer to get ready and organised to go than the time I actually last anywhere!
"Getting dressed is tiring, getting meds organised is tiring, the extra moving, the travel, the wondering what mood your stomach is in – it's all real!
