Cheryl Cole lead a host of celebrities who attending The Prince's Trust Invest In Futures dinner, in aid of unemployed youth in the UK.

During the gala event at the Savoy, Cheryl chatted with host Prince Charles and appeared on stage to auction off a prize - afternoon tea for four with the lady herself.

Charles was grateful for her generous offer, saying: "One of the people who's here this evening, to whom I owe an awful lot, I think, is Cheryl Cole, who has been kind enough to come this evening and apart from anything else, to offer herself as an auction prize, but only for tea".

The pair have met many times in the past due to their parallel charity efforts.

The Fight For This Love singer set up The Cheryl Cole Foundation last year, helping support the Trust’s work in the North of England.

"This afternoon tea is a fun way to raise money for a charity close to my heart. I am a huge fan of the work of the Prince's Trust," she said.
