Four legged stars of Battersea Dogs & Cats Home walked the glittering red carpet, with their two legged star admirers, at the Evolution in London's Battersea Park.

The  Ball was an extraordinary and glamorous event, with 50 very well behaved rescue dogs forming The Doggie Guard Of Honour and stealing the show, in front of a battery of TV cameras and press.

This major annual event in the social calendar raises funds for this happy rescue home, where a dedicated team care for its optimistic residents.  Care and attention and rehoming is the object of the exercise, with 9,000 dogs and cats cared for last year.  Battersea Ambassador Paul O'Grady would take every animal home, if he could.

The world famous Battersea Dogs & Cats Rescue Home operation is overseen by Chief Executive Claire Horton.  The cost of £18million per year is supported by charitable donations, and receives no government funding.

Two very nice and civilised people have been lured to the Australian jungle, to compete in ITV's 'I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here'.

For a fee of approximately £120,000 each, 'Allo 'Allo's glamorous Vicki Michelle 63, and Veteran Newsreader Michael Buerk 68, are to enter the grisly programme, give up their considerable home comforts, and eat and bathe with jungle wildlife. Humiliation is the objective of the sadistic TV programme, but both contestants have the grit to overcome its unattractive spectacle, and the personality to manage their fellow contestants. Vicki Michelle has left her husband Graham Fowler with daughter Louise 24, and Michael Buerk his wife Christine, their inspirations for returning.
