Would you like a Manchester Confidential wall hanging for your lounge?

Art collectors and avid Confidential readers, this is your chance to bid for a one-of-a-kind, special edition Confidential masterpiece.

A few weeks ago we were asked to take part in the Velcro Challenge for Children in Need, alongside a load of celebrities who wanted to go head to head with members of the media in an almighty art-off. Silly celebs.

All we had to do was make an arty creation which featured plenty of Velcro. We love a challenge here, especially weird ones featuring copious amounts of Velcro, so off to work we went, cutting, pasting, sticking, velcroing.

We're up against the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, funny men Bill Bailey and Dave Spikey. Then there's Joanna Lumley, Fred Talbot and Floella Benjamin, soap stars Tupele Dorgu (Kelly from Corrie), Wanda Opalinska (Wiki from Corrie), Matthew Bose (Paul from Emmerdale) and Ellis Hollins (Tom Cunningham from Hollyoaks). David Threlfall’s alter ego Frank Gallagher, Wayne Hemmingway, Linda Barker, ex-Blue Peter presenter Tim Vincent, Amir Khan, Liz McClarnon and Gail Porter have all also made artworks. And from the media it's XFM, Key 103, Galaxy Radio Manchester, the Daily Star, Yorkshire Women’s Life and of course, Manchester Confidential.

The artworks are being exhibited to the public at The Triangle shopping centre until Friday 14 November. The eBay auction is open until Sunday 16 November when the successful bidders will be notified of their wins and the total raised for Children in Need will be calculated.

Visit www.thevelcrochallenge.co.uk to view all the artworks and click here to bid for the Manchester Confidential piece. There's already three people battling for it so get bidding. It could be worth millions in years to come...
