This Labour MP's Wife Is Selling Revealing Signed Selfies On eBay

Councillor Karen Danczuk will cover every picture with her own scent. A new funding model for political parties?

Posted on

Labour councillor Karen Danczuk, the selfie-loving wife of Labour MP Simon Danczuk, is now flogging signed photos of herself on eBay.

She sold at least 20 of the photos in the first day after posting the advert, netting at least £200.

She sold at least 20 of the photos in the first day after posting the advert, netting at least £200.

The councillor has pledged to scent every photo with her own perfume, according to the listing:

"Personalised Karen Danczuk signed Photo Cards, sprayed with my favourite Perfume! The photos are Postcard size and each photo will be personally signed, sprayed, scented and sent by me!"

Danczuk's husband is the Labour MP for Rochdale. But she has built up her own following on Twitter with a non-stop stream of selfies.

In life you can either stand at the sidelines shouting at those trying or actually play the game. I know which I would always do. KD
