Lorraine Kelly, Phylis Logan, Denis Lawson and Richard Wilson have been busy doodling to raise much-needed cash for Epilepsy Action.

National Doodle Day is on Friday, February 5 and the proceeds will directly support the 600,000 people living with epilepsy in the UK.

Scribbles from the stars will go under the hammer in a three-day Ebay auction, ending on February 7.

Over 1300 celebrities including Mary Berry, Steven Gerrard, Rita Ora, Eddie Redmayne and Sophie Dahl, have taken part in National Doodle Day since it began 13 years ago.

Holy Rawlings, doodler in residence at Epilepsy Action said: “Every year we are overwhelmed with doodle-tastic support from celebrities, and always look forward to seeing them all flooding in.

“National Doodle Day gives everyone a chance to get their hands on an original piece of art by their favourite celebrities.

“It also raises incredibly valuable funds for people affected by epilepsy all over the UK.”

National Doodle Day is the annual fundraiser for epilepsy that gets the nation squiggling. As well as bidding for a celebrity scribble, Epilepsy Action is encouraging doodlers all over the country to ‘do a doodle’ and donate.

Once people have doodled, they can donate online at nationaldoodleday.co.uk, or text DOODLE to 70300 (texts will cost £3 plus standard message charge).

Epilepsy affects around one in every 100 people in the UK alone and 87 people are diagnosed with the condition every day.
