Wayne Sleep was among the judges at a Strictly Come Dancing-style contest at the West London Synagogue which raised £8,000 for charity.

Contestants aged from 30-73 took the floor in disciplines ranging from the tango to the rumba and quickstep. Francesca Canty and dance partner Toby Hine won the competition with their quickstep routine.

The dance-off, organised by WLS charitable fund chair Elizabeth Shrager, was part of a WLS tea party celebrating the Queen's Diamond Jubilee attended by 140 people.

“We all have a love of dancing and it’s great exercise," Ms Shrager said. “One lady even sold a piece of jewellery to pay for her gown.”
