Good news for Kosovan refugees, who will now benefit from the stinky titfer's imminent auctioning...

BADLY DRAWN BOY has had his hat returned just minutes before it was due to be auctioned off to raise money for charity tonight (January 30).

The hat was returned by an anonymous blonde woman who walked into the Night & Day bar in Manchester late this afternoon, throwing the hat on the counter.

The hat, without which Mercury Prize winner BDB, real name Damon Gough, has not been seen for the best part of a year, was swiped in another Manchester bar on Saturday night.

The hat will be auctioned at the Lowry art gallery in Salford Keys in Manchester later tonight to raise cash for Kosovan refugees.

Gough is said to be “buzzing” and “delighted” by the news of the return.
