Peter Andre, Nicola McLean, and the cast from TOWIE, Desperate Scousewives and Geordie Shore were among the famous faces who were on tan-tastic form last night as they attended the Fake Bake Glitz and Glamour ball in Glasgow.
The stars – all suitably bronzed and blinged up to the nines - were in the city supporting Fake Bake’s Save Your Skin Campaign, promoting the importance of sun safety and skin cancer, and helping raise funds for the Donna Mortimer-Ballantyne Charitable Trust, as well as the charity Raft, which helps people with skin disfiguring illnesses such as burns, wounds and skin cancer.
Donna sadly passed away last year aged just 39, after a battle with skin cancer. The dedicated fundraiser had herself raised more than £1 million for charity, and desperately tried to warn others of the importance of looking after their skin, and the dangers of using sunbeds.
Walking the red carpet, Fake Bake founder Sandra McClumpha explained why hosting the event was so important to her. She said: “It’s really important we’ve been doing the Save Your Skin campaign for seven years now but his is the first event we’ve done in Glasgow so hopefully it’ll be a success tonight.”
WAG and reality TV star Nicola McLean was among the famous faces throwing their support behind Save Your Skin. “Most of us do want to be tanned but it is possible to be tanned and look glam without risking cancer," she said.
Former TOWIE star Amy Childs added: “It’s a major campaign [avoiding] skin cancer. It’s all about the fake tan. I love fake tan as everyone knows!”
Waterloo Road actress and former Strictly Come Dancing contestant Chelsee Healey told us: “I feel very strongly about it, I always wear fake tan and fake bake and it’s important to look after our skin.”
And former Big Brother star Josie Gibson added: “Save Your Skin is a really, really important campaign, so really delighted to be here supporting it.”
Other stars in attendance included Peter Andre, Michelle Heaton, Harry Derbridge, Sky News presenter Charlotte Jackson, and Scottish Apprentice contestant Laura Hogg.
Earlier in the day, stv.tv spoke to Peter Andre about why he became the face of Fake Bake's Sport Daily Tan, explaining: “What we’re offering is an alternative and the reason I endorse this product is because I believe there’s a way to get that colour you want without the risk of cancer.”
The guests enjoyed a four-course meal at the city’s Radisson Blu hotel, before snapping up items in a silent auction and enjoying entertainment provided by the band NVS and up-and-coming singer Tallia Storm, who is supporting Elton John this summer.
