Louise and Annette hit town for charity

YUMMY mummy Louise Loughman and her longtime friend socialite Annette Rocca enjoyed a night to remember recently when they hit the titles in the UK with members of Westlife and a host of other A-listers.

The Diary can reveal how the high-profile pair joined forces with Louise's property developer husband Stephen Byrne to attend the glitzy Fashion Kicks event, which took place at Lancashire County Cricket club last month.

The group were invited as guests of the organisers -- Republic of Ireland goalkeeper Shay Given and his wife Jane -- and had the opportunity to rub shoulders with big names including supermodel Lily Cole, X Factor star Alexandra Burke and Coronation Street stars Brooke Vincent and Jenny McAlpine.

Former model Louise told the Diary the celebrations continued late into the night following the charity fashion show in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support and sit-down dinner prepared by some of the finest chefs in the Academy of Culinary Arts.

"It was a lovely evening, absolutely superb," said Louise, who wore a dress by Irish designer Joanne Hynes. "There was a great crowd there, we got to meet lots of people from the sporting world.

"It was our first time to go and we just had a fantastic time. From start to finish everything was organised down to the last detail."
