Melanie Brown sells dresses for charity

Melanie Brown is selling off a collection of her glamorous dresses to raise money for an Australian breast cancer charity.

The former Spice Girl has donated six gowns she's worn as co-presenter on the Aussie version of reality show Dancing With The Stars to The McGrath Foundation's sale, which is being held to generate funds to provide nurses for women suffering from the disease.

In a series of posts on her Twitter.com page, she writes, "Bidding on my 6 DWTS gowns... ALL proceeds go towards breast cancer."

The sale on auction website eBay.com starts on Wednesday (13Jun12).
