Read on for more info:

Fans of Doctor Who will get the chance to own a little piece of the Eleventh Doctor today, as BBC Children in Need auctions off an entire costume from the hit BBC One show - from bow tie and braces to the infamous tweed jacket. 

Matt Smith was at BBC Television Centre today filming a special sketch for BBC Children in Need written by Steven Moffat, to be shown during the appeal show on Friday evening. Viewers will get to see just what happens when the Doctor gives bidders the chance to take the clothes off his back...

Matt Smith said: "I hope people donate generously for BBC Children in Need because it's a wonderful cause- and we've got to beat last year's total. I saw Terry Wogan on TV the other night, and thought come on! Let's make more money! So hopefully we can raise a good amount. 

"I'd say the tweed jacket or the bow-tie are the most iconic - although the boots are my personal favourite." 

Throughout the years, the costumes worn by the many incarnations of the Doctor have been as distinctive as the characters themselves. The highest bidder will be the proud owner of the distinguished time traveller's outfit from the episode The Doctor's Wife, including this tweed jacket, shirt, black jeans, black boots, braces, bow-tie and watch.
The auction for the Doctor's clothes, and a copy of the script written by Steven Moffat and signed by Matt Smith from the specially filmed sketch, are part of BBC Children in Need's Once in a Lifetime online auction being held at The auction closes on Monday 21st November.

On the Appeal Night, the title of this year's Doctor Who Christmas Special will be revealed and viewers will be treated to an exclusive sneak peek of the festive adventures in store for the Doctor. 

BBC Children in Need broadcasts live on BBC Television Centre tomorrow at 7:30pm on BBC One and BBC One HD, more info coming soon.
