Eva Longoria, Mel B and Mr will.i.am were some of the A-list celebrities who attended The Noble Gift Gala 2012 at ME London.

Celebs such as Millie Mackintosh, Ashley Roberts, Dynamo, Hugo Taylor and Nicky Clarke all got together at the London's newest 5* hotel to raise funds for The Eva Longoria Foundation, Fight for Life and Caudwell Children.

Here's some of the gossip I got from the red carpet:

Eva Longoria looked stunning in an Alberta Ferretti gown and we asked her why she chose to hold the event in good old London town.

"I love doing this event in London because everybody's so generous with charity.

"I think people look at events like this and think it's just glamorous and fun. We try to put the fun back in fund-raising but the main goal of the evening is not only to raise funds but also to raise awareness.

"So people understand that you can donate money, you can donate time, donate items and there's a lot of different ways you can help organisations so that's really what's most important."

Host of the evening, Mel B looked amazing in a Charlotte Simpson dress and I got her chatting about the Spice Girls and their musical, Viva Forever!

"I just landed in the UK yesterday and all the girls came round to my hotel for lunch so we got to hangout all day yesterday. We're having Sunday dinner at Geri's because I love a good Sunday roast.

"And then we have the launch as well this week which will be fun."

Will.i.am - who received the 2012 Noble Gift Humanitarian Award - had some sweets words for Prince William and Kate Middleton.

"Kate and Wills news is fresh. I'm a little older than them but that's inspirational to see people aiming and planning for a child and thinking about the way their going to raise the child.

"Thats is inspirational because I didn't know my dad. My mum is my dad and she's the freaking bomb. I haven't sent a gift yet but I will send them love and prayers, they are the most powerful gifts."

And the inspirtation doesn't just stop there as Will added, "I'm in England for the Voice as filming starts this week in Manchester.

But I'm here to support Eva Longoria and her foundation. She doesn't have to do this stuff and there's not that many celebrities – i hate that word celebrity – there's not that many successful people in entertainment that live for something and fight something.

"She truly is one of those people and she's an inspiration. I would support anybody that is bringing opportunities and encouraging kids and raising money to better people's lives. She's fresh."

Keep your eyes out for more red carpet gossip during the week!
