'Big Brother 11' winner Josie Gibson is launching her first fragrance.
The reality TV star releases perfume 'Josie by Josie Gibson' today (23.11.10) and is donating £1 from each bottle sold from website www.theperfumeshop.com to cancer charity Look Good Feel Better.
Josie said: "I have been so lucky in the past year to have been given all these amazing advantages and I want to do something to give back now.
"Look Good Feel Better over is such an amazing charity and does fantastic work to help women going through harrowing cancer treatments feel like women again.
"It brings back self-esteem and helps build back the confidence needed to pull through."
Josie chose the fragrance - which comes packaged in a turquoise box with an illustration of her on the front - for its blend of citrus high notes including mandarin, raspberry and cassis.
The 25-year-old star, from Bristol, is also making a bid for the UK Christmas number one single this year, with a track written by The Cornish Wurzells which she has recorded.
The song - the title of which has not been revealed - will also raise money for charity, benefiting The Children's Hospice South West.
Of the song, Josie said: "We're going to try and get to number one and give Simon Cowell a run for his money. He's going to hate me. People have really supported me so it's a pleasure to give something back. I can't thank everyone enough. It's been brilliant."
Josie by Josie Gibson is on sale from Tuesday 23rd November for £19.99 and her charity single will be released on December 13.
