A CARDIGAN worn by Coronation Street’s Hayley Cropper is being auctioned off for charity.

Hayley, played by Accrington actress Julie Hesmondhalgh, took her own life after an emotional battle with cancer.

A picture of the purple cardigan has been uploaded to internet auction site eBay, where users are bidding for a piece of television history.

Seller, roslyn1961, wrote: “This is a cardigan worn by Hayley Cropper, with a certificate of authenticity. It was kindly sent to me by ITV Studios, and was worn a number of times in many different scenes.

“All proceeds from this sale will go to the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, a cause very close to my heart.”

At the time of going to print, almost 15 bids had been placed, and bidding had reached £49.10.

The auction will end at 4.32pm on Sunday.
