The birthday party was brought to a sudden halt after the veteran newsreader collapsed while enjoying the celebration at the Hilton Hotel on Park Lane.

The party was thrown by Angela as a belated 79th birthday celebration and to mark the end of the Strictly Come Dancing tour.
An onlooker said: ‘Moira took a funny turn when Angela’s party was in full swing. She had been in great spirits on the night and spent time with Angela and Lulu, who was also a guest, at the Hilton.
‘It all happened very quickly and out of nowhere,Moira, who was standing at the bar, had fallen to the floor.
‘She was looked after by Louise and Michael and an ambulance was called just in case.’
