Esther's twirl with Spongebob lights up charity ball

16 NOVEMBER 2007

Childline founder Esther Rantzen got the chance to celebrate turning 21 again when the kids' charity marked the momentous milestone on Thursday.

Elegant in midnight blue velvet, the philanthropic TV personality hosted a celebrity-studded champagne reception in London's Royal Courts of Justice.

The majestic surroundings didn't stop high-profile guests such as EastEnders actress Samantha Janus and The Bill's Beth Cordingly letting their hair down in style.

Esther led the way, taking to the dancefloor with cartoon character Spongebob Squarepants. VIP invitees were also treated to an auction and a casino on a night that raised vital funds for an organisation which counsels 140,000 vulnerable kids every year.
