Chatting to HELLO! on the night, Mel C said: "It's so lovely to be here tonight. The Queen is the ultimate in girl power. 70 years! She’s an inspiration." Looking ahead to the monarch's official birthday celebrations, Trooping the Colour, which will kick off the Jubilee festivities on Thursday, June 2, she added: "I wish you a very happy birthday ma'am!"

Andrea McClean said: "I love love love the Queen. I appreciate her more and more as I get older. I was lucky enough to be in the same room with her at Westminster Abbey years ago - and it was such a special moment to be in her presence. It feels extra special to be here at Langan's to celebrate, it's an iconic venue and I've had a lot of good times here over the years. My husband Nick and I bought a portrait of the Queen recently, we're so excited to have it hanging up in our house with her Jubilee year, 2022, written on it!"

Denise Van Outen told HELLO!:  "I am such a royalist, I always have been. My house is full of pictures of the Queen. I am so excited to celebrate the Jubilee on the bank holiday weekend with a garden party with family and friends."

Dame Arlene Phillips added: "I'm going to be one of the Dames in the final act of the People's Pageant on 5 June. I feel so lucky to be appearing alongside national treasures. Her Majesty presented me with my OBE [in 2001] and an CBE [in 2013] and it was magical to be in her presence. One of the things that struck me about the Queen is her resilience. She works tirelessly and always has a smile and puts people at ease."

Ben Mosley, the artist of the Queen portrait displayed at the event, said: "I'm so proud to be in this room helping celebrate our greatest Monarch."

Joan gave a speech alongside HELLO!'s editor-in-chief, Rosie Nixon, who showcased artist Ben Mosley's Jubilee painting of the Queen, featuring gold leaf.

Joking that she had been "eating and drinking" a lot at the party, which had caused her to "burst her dress," Joan told the guests: "My darling husband went out to find me another dress, so that's what the fun is all about."

Honouring the Queen, she added: "We're all here because we love this woman, she is wonderful and we have all loved her all our lives, I certainly have. She's been a huge part of my life, as have all the family, and I think that we have so much to be thankful for to have such a wonderful woman on the throne and long may she reign."

"Thank you all for coming. I would like to raise a glass to Queen Elizabeth our queen. God save the queen."
