Just last month, the Sun writer released a shirt with her beloved slogan “Rebellious Hope” on the front.

Two batches of 10,000 t-shirts sold out within hours, raising £140,000.

The podcaster said 100 per cent of profits go to her fund, which supports Cancer Research UK, The Royal Marsden and Bowel Cancer UK.

Just four days ago Debs revealed sales had surpassed £500,000 and said support for the garments had been “crazy” while her fund has now reached a whopping £6.6million.

Due to the popularity of the tops, Debs asked her followers last week if a different style t-shirt would be of interest.

Taking to Instagram last night, she revealed that the top will now be available in two new colours.

To model the new shirt, Debs sits with a beaming smile in a black Rebellious Hope t-shirt with her small dog on her lap in her garden.

She also posed alongside her daughter Eloise, 12, and mother Heather, both of whom are wearing the new black and pink versions of the product.

But Debs was keen to emphasize that things aren’t always what they appear in photos.

She said: “I love makeup! I felt sooooo crappy in this picture.

“It wasn’t a good day, like many aren’t at the moment. But it’s amazing how pictures don’t say 1,000 other words.

“For reference, I spent my day telling everyone to fuck off.”

The new t-shirt is set to go on sale today, with profits going to the BoweBabe fund.

Deborah also revealed that brands Scamp and Dude are now donating £10 from sales of the £30 ‘swag bags’ to the fund.

The company said: “As most of you know, Dame Deborah James aka @bowelbabe is a friend of ours and has always been part of the Scamp & Dude family for the past 5 years.

“We are delighted to be able to help raise funds for the brilliant @bowelbabefund for Cancer Research UK by selling one of our products.

“It would take too long to create something new so we decided to let Deborah choose something from the current collection and she went for this swag bag in coral with a gold leopard and lightning bolt.”

The Signs of Colon Cancer You Need to Know – Think COLON

  1. B: bleeding

There are several possible causes of bleeding from your butt or blood in your poop.

Bright red blood can come from swollen blood vessels, hemorrhoids, or hemorrhoids in your anus.

Dark red or black blood may come from your intestines or stomach.

Blood in the stool is one of the main signs of colon cancer, so it’s important to tell your doctor so he can investigate.

2. O: Obvious change in toilet habits

It’s important to let your GP know if you notice changes in your bowel habits that last three weeks or more.

It’s especially important if you’ve also noticed signs of blood in your poop.

You may find that you need to go to the bathroom more often, you may have looser stools, or you may feel like you are not walking enough or not emptying your bowels completely.

Don’t be embarrassed, your family doctor will have heard a lot worse! Speak up and have it checked.

3. W: weight loss

This is less common than the other symptoms, but it’s important to be aware of. If you have lost weight and do not know exactly why, you should tell your family doctor.

You may not feel like eating, feel sick, bloated and not hungry.

4. E: Extreme fatigue

Colon cancer that causes bleeding can cause iron deficiency in the body – anemia. If you develop anemia, you are likely to feel tired and your skin may look pale.

5. L: Lump or pain

As with many other types of cancer, lumps or pain can be a sign of colon cancer.

It is very likely that you will feel a pain or lump in your stomach or back passage

They added that for people who have already bought the bag, £10 from every sale since the product’s launch will be donated.

“We are so proud of everything that Dame Deborah James has achieved and it means so much to know that we can be a part of something so special that will make such a difference,” she added.

Deborah stressed that she was grateful for the partnership and that the company had been “very generous.”

The Sun writer was placed in a home hospice last month and is spending time with her family and friends.

Debs, the mother of Eloise, 12, and Hugo, 14, said her condition has made her less and less able to leave the house.

Deborah was first diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer in 2016.

Since then, she’s been an avid activist raising awareness of the signs and symptoms of the condition.

In the past few weeks, she’s had a rose named after her, launched a fashion line and even had her very own Lego mini-me sent to her.

Whilst she has raised hundreds of thousands of pounds through these partnerships, her biggest passion and mission to date is the BowelBabe fund.

The podcaster has so far raised over £6.6million for charities including Cancer Research UK (CRUK), Bowel Cancer UK and Royal Marsden.
