Rudding Park in Harrogate was the setting for the ball, which saw celebrities including Emmerdale stars, led by Martin House ambassadors Jeff Hordley and Zoe Henry, among the 530 guests. Former England and Leeds United footballer, and Celebrity Masterchef runner-up, Danny Mills was also at the ball, auctioning himself off to cook a meal in the home of the successful bidder for up to ten people – which scooped £4,000 alone.
