Millie’s Cookies has created four special cookies to mark the X Factor final and is auctioning them off for charity on eBay.

Ahead of Saturday’s competition, the show’s fans can bid for four 12-inch chocolate chip cookies, featuring the faces of Matt Cardle, One Direction, Cher Lloyd and Rebecca Ferguson drawn in flavoured icing, with cash raised going to Help the Heroes and Childline.

Senior brand manager Michelle Graham-Clare said: “As avid fans of the show and with opinions split in the office, we thought we would launch a poll of a different nature, to find the yummiest contestant. Each cookie will be freshly made and distributed personally to the highest bidder.”

With just less than 48 hours of bidding time left, the Matt Cardle cookie is in the lead with a current bid of £13.50.
