We've had Vincent van Gogh, now get Fanny Gogh, Salford's answer to impressionism of the Irwell variety who has been making a name for herself artistically rummaging around in the knicker drawers of celebrities to produce collages that are usually auctioned for charity.

Fanny latest massive Knickerbokaglory mural is ten feet high, features knickers as worn by celebs including Sara Cox and Little Hulton Corrie star Catherine Tyldsley, and is set to be unveiled at a special Knickerbokaglory Festival at the Waterside Bar and Restaurant next Saturday.

Fanny Gogh is the pseudonym of Salford's Sian Doherty, who had hole in the heart surgery last year and has since being working to raise money through her art for the British Heart Foundation. And all the proceeds from tickets sold for next weekend's event will be donated to the Foundation's Salford appeal to help put life saving defibrillators in every surgery in the city.

"It's going to be a really fun day and raising money for the 'saving lives in Salford appeal' on a mission to get defibs in every surgery, which is very close to my now mended heart" Sian told the Salford Star.

The Festival starts at 4pm and, as well as featuring the celeb unveiling of the 10ft mural, also includes outdoor live music from local singers and bands, a Waterside's Got Talent contest with celeb judges, a BBQ, curry tent and lots of ice cream, pop corn, candy floss and a bouncy castle for the kiddies.
