A huge number of British stars turned out at the O2 Arena in London last night for the Channel 4 Comedy Gala to benefit the Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Hosted by Jonathan Ross – who led with a controversial performance – the night featured a special video message from longtime GOSH supporter Johnny Depp, and appearances by Jo Brand, Alan Carr, Rob Brydon, Jack Dee, Lee Evans, Katie Price, Michael McIntyre, Sean Lock, Christine Bleakley and many more.

The event raised funds for two new anesthetic rooms that will allow parents to stay with their children right up until they enter the operating theaters.

“My son was at the hospital when he was younger and had to stay in over several nights,” said Jack Dee. “It was no picnic – being in hospital never is – but everybody at the hospital were great and he’s OK now. I find how kids can deal with some very serious health problems staggering. It is inspiring.”
