Boyband Kingsland Road will donate all profits from tonight's gig in Liverpool to charity after a hoax eBay bidder sabotaged their charity auction, it has been announced.
The band had wanted to sell one of the audition guitars used on TV talent show X Factor to raise cash for charity.
But the bidding war was won by a scammer who placed a bid of £7,900 - despite having no intention of coughing up.
The band had been trying to help raise money towards Birmingham Children's Hospital's £4million appeal towards a new cancer care centre.
The band play Liverpool's PopWorld tonight, and have decided to personally donate their pay for the show to the cause.
They have also launched a JustGiving page so any fans who want to contribute anything more can do so.
