The auction will raise money for national charity Epilepsy Action.

Taylor has been joined by household names including Sir Michael Parkinson, Bill Nighy, Jackie Collins and John Bishop in doodling for the annual event.

More than 1,200 celebrities, including Mary Berry, Joanna Lumley, Rita Ora and Sophie Dahl have taken part in National Doodle Day since it began 11 years ago.

Members of the public can also get in on the act by creating their own masterpiece and donating a pound to Epilepsy Action.

There will be prizes for the best doodlers including arts and crafts vouchers and custom-made 3D doodles.

Here is group editor Peter Wilson-Leary's entry, an draft illustration of a Watford Observer front page from July 2012:
