Bidding on the afternoon, which will be for the winner and a friend, has already begun on sellebrity.org.uk.

The website auction will be frozen at 11.10am on Monday, July 1, where all bids will be carried over to the evening event, which starts at 8pm.

Bidding on the website prior to this means that fans will be able to telephone the auctioneer's assistant during the auction to make their final bids.
