Happy Mondays singer Rowetta Satchell and Early Doors actors John Henshaw and James Quinn were also among the VIP guests.

The ball raised £155,000 which will go towards the development of a state-of-the-art research centre to replace the Paterson building at The Christie that was severely damaged by fire last year.
