Adding inches to her frame in a pair of onyx heels, she wore her chocolate locks in gorgeous curls and painted her pout an eye-popping shade of red.

Pals: Christopher Biggins beamed with delight as he posed for snaps with Joan

He jumped off a bridge in Cheshire, breaking nearly every bone in his body – but miraculously, he survived.

And, while being treated for the catastrophic injuries he sustained in hospital, decided he would not let those who harmed him beat him again.

Michael worked hard to build a multi-million-pound business in the following years and raised a staggering £3.4m for Childline and the NSPCC.

Putting on a show: Paul Scholes looked smart in an onyx suit-and-tie

He was awarded the MBE by the Queen in 2016 for his services to charity and now he is planning his own charity ball to continue his fundraising drive. 

Michael’s association with Childline, the helpline for abused children, also started after he left hospital, when he was invited to attend the annual Childline ball as a guest.

He decided in 2017 that after 15 years of supporting Childline he wanted to be able to help other charities and reach out to more children – and so decided to start his own charity ball which will each year support different charities.
