Celebrities get cosy: Turns out Emma Thompson can design an impressive tea pot warmer too!


Celebrities including Emma Thompson, Maisie Williams and Antony Cotton have re-designed the humble tea cosy - with their imaginative designs brought to life for a new charity campaign.

A host of famous faces have personally designed their own tea cosies, with other designs by Stacey Solomon, Rebecca Adlington, Lacey Turner, Levison Wood, James Bowen and Bob the Cat, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, David Gold, Jacqueline Gold, and Twiggy.

The designs were then knitted into reality by volunteers from the Military Wives Choirs and other supporters of the SSAFA Armed Forces Big Brew Up charity campaign.

Game of Thrones actress Maisie opted for a hexagonal design...

The tea cosies will be auctioned on eBay from June 16 alongside a signed hard-copy of the original celebrity design.

Antony said: "There is nothing I like more than sharing a cuppa and a chat with a mate, so I was delighted to design a tea cosy for SSAFA and help the charity reintroduce the nation to this fun tea break accessory.

"Our Armed Forces have dedicated their lives to keeping us safe and deserve all the support we can give them."
