EastEnders actresses added celebrity sparkle to Centrepoint’s annual Sleep Out in West India Quay .

Brooke Kinsella and Louisa Lytton played host for the event on Thursday. November 11, which saw Canary Wharf workers wrap up in their winter woolies and snooze on the streets between 7pm and 7am the following morning.

Meanwhile, DJ Brandon Block entertained with a music set and street food vendor, Kerb on the Quay, dished up pies and breakfast as the sun rose.

Between the event’s 12 sites, around 1,000 gave up their bed for the evening and secured more than £250,000 to help the homeless.

Head of events at Centrepoint Richard Utting, said: “We’re so grateful to everyone who gave up their beds across the country last night to raise money, and awareness of the crucial issue of youth homelessness. Ten years on from our first Sleep Out there’s still much to be done to end the scandal of young people in the 21st century left with no option but to sleep rough. The streets are no place for a young person.”

The cash will be spent on providing warm beds, mental health support and assistance to access education, training and employment.
