DIY SOS and I'm a Celebrity star Nick Knowles is auctioning a pair of infamous red pants to help a boy from Swindon walk.

The TV handyman appeared on This Morning to sell the pants- which won him notoriety after viewers frequently spotted him strutting around in them on the reality show - to the highest bidder to help raise money for Luca Railton, aged 15, whose family need to raise £120,000 for a life-changing operation to help him walk.

The teenager, who is from Cricklade and a family friend of Nick, has had more than 90 hours of surgery since the age of two after he was born with no tibia or knee bone in his right leg because of rare condition called bilateral tibial hemimelia.

The auction for the pants is on February 9 to go towards the operation booked with a surgeon in the US in July.
