A dress and scarf designed by Pippa Middleton will join other unique items to be auctioned off for the British Heart Foundation.

A selection of once-in-a-lifetime celebrity lots from a date with Made In Chelsea's Ollie Locke to a coat owned by The Saturdays singer Mollie King will be up for grabs in an online auction ahead of the BHF's Roll Out The Red fundraising ball.

Other goodies include a Valentine's weekend for two at Downton Abbey's Highclere Castle, VIP tickets to a Manchester City match and signed football memorabilia, plus designer treats from Longchamp to Aspinal of London.

Middleton will give the welcome speech at the ball hosted by Natasha Kaplinsky and has also offered up two of the limited editions items she designed for Tabitha Webb.

King, who hosted the successful event last year, said the charity needed as much support as it can get.

"I was honoured to be host last year's Roll Out The Red Ball in aid of the British Heart Foundation.

"It is such a fantastic charity which is very close to my heart as my grandfather sadly died of heart disease.

"The BHF has already made vital discoveries through research in the prevention and treatment of heart and circulatory conditions but there is still so much work to be done," she said.

Tickets are still available to the Roll Out The Red fundraising ball that takes place on February 11 at The Savoy, London.

For those who cannot make it, the online auction will be open until midnight of the same evening.
