Melbourne: Spin king Shane Warne, who recently revealed that he has lost 22 pounds over the last few months, has decided to put his Diesel jeans up for auction to raise money for seriously ill and underprivileged kids through his Shane Warne Foundation.

Warnie announced the news on his Twitter page saying: "Thinking about auctioning of (sic) my diesel jeans - reportedly my dad`s - harsh! After seeing the success of princess beatrice`s amazing hat," last week.

This was the controversial Philip Treacy hat, which Princess Beatrice wore to the royal wedding, and which fetched 81,000 pounds on eBay with all proceeds going to UNICEF and Children In Crisis charities.

Warne is even said to be expanding the auction so as to include items donated by his many high-profile friends, reports the Daily Telegraph.

The list includes items from girlfriend Liz Hurley (her extremely long-wearing white jeans), Gary Ablett Jr`s footy boots, Karl Stefanovic`s jeans and Robbie Maddison`s motorbike boots.
