Kim Murray’s touching show of support to Deborah James while cheering Andy on at Wimbledon | The Sun
KIM Murray has shown her support for Dame Deborah James whilst cheering on her husband Andy at Wimbledon.
During day one of the sporting event, the 34-year-old wore the white version of the Rebellious Hope t-shirt.
She teamed the top with a pair of denim jeans and wore her hair in loose blonde waves.
Sun writer Dame Debs launched the t-shirt collection whilst receiving palliative care at her parents home in Woking, Surrey.
It comes in different colours with white, navy, pink and black, meaning you can support the bowel cancer campaigner whatever your style.
Kim isn't the first celeb to show their support and last week Lorraine Kelly's daughter Rosie also sported the shirt for an episode of Gogglebox.

Earlier this month the Countess of Wessex gave her royal stamp of approval as she was also spotted wearing the garment.
Money raised from the sales of t-shirts will go towards to BowelBabe fund, which has pulled in over £6.7million for charities such as Cancer Research UK, Bowel Cancer UK and The Royal Marsden.
Sales from the collaboration with In The Style hit over £1million and Deborah said the funds will help 'more Deborah's have more time'.
Dame Deb said the message on her best-selling t-shirt is hugely significant to her.

"Rebellious Hope’ is what has got me through the last few years and it’s what is keeping me going now!" she said.
"Seeing all your messages, tags and support has just been the best and I am so grateful that we have been able to do this together!"
Raising funds isn't her only achievement though and in recent weeks Debs has also sought victory.
Many supermarkets have now said they will print the signs of bowel cancer on their toilet rolls after Debs said more needed to be done.
It was this week announced that Tesco will now also print symptoms on their loo paper.
The supermarket also donated £300,000 to the Bowelbabe Fund.
It comes after Deborah said she was “bored of puppies” on loo roll – the key feature of Andrex’s marketing – leading to the brand to commit to raising awareness of symptoms.

The signs of bowel cancer you need to know – remember BOWEL
There are several possible causes of bleeding from your bottom, of blood in your poo.
Bright red blood could come from swollen blood vessels, haemorrhoids or piles, in your back passage.
Dark red or black blood could come from your bowel or stomach.
Blood in your stools is one of the key signs of bowel cancer, so it’s important to mention it to your doctor so they can investigate.
2. O: Obvious change in loo habits
It’s important to tell your GP if you have noticed any changes in your bowel habits, that lasts three weeks or longer.
It’s especially important if you have also noticed signs of blood in your poo.
You might notice you need to go to the loo more often, you might have looser stools or feel like you’re not going enough or fully emptying your bowels.
Don’t be embarrassed, your GP will have heard a lot worse! Speak up and get it checked.
3. W: Weight loss
This is less common than the other symptoms, but an important one to be aware of. If you’ve lost weight and don’t really know why, it’s worth mentioning to your GP.
You may not feel like eating, feel sick, bloated and not hungry.
4. E: Extreme tiredness
Bowel cancer that causes bleeding can cause a lack of iron in the body – anaemia. If you develop anaemia you’re likely to feel tired and your skin might look pale.
5. L: Lump or pain
As with lots of other forms of cancer, a lump or pain can be a sign of bowel cancer.
It’s most likely you’ll notice a pain or lump in your stomach or back passage
Marks & Spencer and Aldi have also made the major change thanks to Deborah's tireless campaigning.
The mum-of-two has been on a mission to get people to check their poo since she was told she had bowel cancer at the age of 35, in 2016.
Bowel cancer is the fourth most common cancer in the UK and the second biggest cancer killer.
Nearly 43,000 people are diagnosed with it every year, however the disease is treatable and curable, especially if diagnosed early.
Last month, the podcaster was told her body was no longer playing ball, and she was moved to palliative care.
