Model Bent struts his stuff at fabulous charity bash
Hosts Jane and Shay Given rolled out the red carpet at The Point at Lancashire County Cricket Club to welcome a host of superstars from the worlds of music, football, food and entertainment to their annual Fashion Kicks fundraiser.
Presented by Dawn Porter, the evening kicked off with a champagne reception, before guests were treated to an incredible fashion show which featured Premier League 'models' including Given, Bent, former Villa stars Emile Heskey, Gareth Barry and Carlos Cuellar, Vincent Kompany, Joleon Lescott, Adam Johnson and Kolo Toure.
Guests then enjoyed an exquisite dinner created by a line up of Britain's leading chefs including Paul Heathcote and Nigel Haworth, before being entertained by Got to Dance winners Irish Dance group Prodijig, who appeared before the impressive charity auction.
The evening culminated in a sensational set by multi-million record selling boyband Westlife, who gave their final charity concert to a delighted Fashion Kicks audience, which included Louis Walsh, Chris O'Dowd and a host of top-flight stars including James Milner, Stephen Warnock, Joe Hart, Carlos Cuellar, Pablo Zabaletta and Nigel de Jong.
The evening raised a remarkable £200,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Patron Given said: 'This Fashion Kicks event was the best ever! My wife Jane and I are absolutely delighted to have raised over £200,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support and causes close to our heart.
"Jane worked incredibly hard to organise this event and we'd also especially like to thank Westlife, Dawn Porter, Prodijig and all our guests for their generous support.
"We hope to be able to reach our goal of helping the charities involved reach and support even more people who need it most."
