MP Tracy Brabin has raised thousands for Girlguides by auctioning off her infamous 'shouldergate' dress.

One week and 180 eBay bids later, the Labour frontbencher raised £20,000 for the historic institution which works with girls from five to 18.

Girlguides said: "We're so grateful to all the @eBay_UK bidders and of course to @TracyBrabin. Thank you for donating your dress to @Girlguiding to help us build the confidence of girls today to be the leaders of tomorrow.

"Just so grateful to everyone who placed a bid and rest assured there will be young girls who’s lives will be changed because of this money. THANK YOU."

It's a positive way end to the dress debate which saw the MP forced to defend herself against Twitter trolls accusing her of being a 'slag'.

"Who knew people could get so emotional over a shoulder," she questioned.

Ms Brabin was raising a point of order in the Commons on Downing Street's decision to order senior journalists from some of the UK's major news organisations to leave before a briefing on Boris Johnson's Brexit plans when she spoke at the despatch box wearing the outfit.

Speaking out on social media, she said: "Sorry I don’t have time to reply to all of you commenting on this but I can confirm I’m not.... A slag Hungover A tart About to breastfeed A slapper Drunk Just been banged over a wheelie bin."
