A One Direction star tested our knowledge plus all the goss from Gav Aid

In the words of The Four Season’s song, ‘Oh, what a night!’

Giving Mastermind a run for their money, this year’s Gav Aid, one of the UK’s biggest showbiz quizzes, was better than ever!

Stars, showbiz hacks, PRs, and anyone who’s anyone came along to London’s Troxy in an explosion of gossip and secret celeb spotting. And in between the roars of laughter and the competitive side-glances, we raised more money than ever before for Pancreatic Cancer Action in memory and love of an incredible man, heat Deputy Editor Gavin Reeve-Daniels.

During the monumental night, not only did we see the likes of TOWIE take on the Hollyoaks cast, testing their knowledge of pop, sport, scandal, TV and film. But, we were also treated to the lovely Denise Van Outen being quizmaster, appearances from One Direction‘s Niall Horan, Nicole Scherzinger and Jack Whitehall posing questions, and a hilarious round hosted by Essex brainiacs Bobby Norris and Ferne McCann.

As well as spying on who was sneaking off with who, we nibbled on delicious bowls of Mac ‘n’ Cheese, quaffed down some lovely booze and tore up some wicked shapes on the dancefloor alongside Geordie Shore‘s Vicky Pattinson and Ex on the Beach‘s Jess Impiazzi.

So why do we do Gav Aid? Well, Gavin passed away in September 2014 and the magazine world is still coming to terms with the loss of a man who made such an incredible contribution both to the industry and to everyone who worked with him.

To honour Gavin’s memory and raise money for Pancreatic Cancer Action, the night saw the magazine industry put aside rivalries to do battle in a different way.

Feel like you missed out?

Fear not, you can still join in with the Gav Aid auction and bid on some ah-mazing prizes like a signed One D album, a holiday to Italy, showbiz memorabilia and tickets to some of the best gigs in town!

Now, get bidding!
