Sexy Corrie barmaid ‘Eva’ played by actress Catherine Tyldesley is one of many celebrities that have been throwing their underwear at Manchester artist Sian Doherty aka Fanny Gogh to be used in one of her saucy creations.

Sian from Worsley, Salford was given the sudo name ‘Fanny Gogh’ by a UK tabloid in 2009 after she famously stuck knickers on a canvass in the shape of a ‘Knickerbokaglory’ dessert for her ‘Beautiful Trash’ exhibition.

Since then Fanny has been creating cheeky mixed media artwork with undergarments from many celebrities undies.

The list of famous underwear donators is endless and includes American comedian Rob Schneider, Radio 1 presenter Sara Cox, Waterloo Road actress Chelsea Healey, Shameless stars Ciaran Griffiths, Tina Malone, Rebecca Atkinson and of course the stunning Catherine Tyldesley. They are all fans of the quirky artist and more than happy to get involved as a percentage from every piece of her artwork which is sold or auctioned goes to The British Heart Foundation.

She is now a major fundraiser for the British Heart Foundation and will be bearing all and launching her new sumptuous collections at a star studded exhibition opening at ‘Generation Gallery’ in Manchester on 13th September.
