The lunch was held at the Hallmark Hotel in Chigwell and was to raise funds for the Marjorie Collins MS centre in Grove Lane.

The centre welcomes anyone suffering from MS, a disease which disrupts part of the nervous system and prevents it communicating properly with the rest of the body, along with their families and carers.

Sheila Gilbert, 80, secretary of group For Those In Need - the group who organised the event said that Stacey was a “bundle of joy.”

She said: “It was a really good afternoon, Stacey was brilliant and everyone was interested in hearing what she had to say.

“We have done a lot of work to raise money for MS research and have been going for over 50 years and raised more than £300,000.”
