It was Strictly Come Catwalk in Cannes as showbusiness veteran Bruce Forsyth took part in a charity fashion event organised by Naomi Campbell.

The 83-year-old entertainer was joined on the catwalk by his wife, former model and ex-Miss World, Wilnelia Merced.

The event aimed to raise money for the victims of the Japanese earthquake and also included appearances by Jane Fonda, Yasmin Le Bon and tennis player Novak Djokovic .

Naomi was first on the catwalk, which was set up inside Cannes' Forville Market.

The fashion show was followed by an auction which saw a one-off Lotus sports car, jewellery and works of art sell for hundreds of thousands of pounds.

Naomi held her first Fashion For Relief show in 2005 which raised around one million US dollars (£650,000) for victims of Hurricane Katrina.

She said: "The destruction caused by the earthquake in Japan is completely heartbreaking, it's so hard to even begin to comprehend the tragic loss the people of Japan are coping with.

"I felt very passionate to try and help in whatever way possible, to do our part and to support Japan at this time. I hope that the money raised from Fashion For Relief in Cannes will support those who need it most."

Bruce said: "I had a wonderful time. That's something I've never done before, been on a catwalk.

"In the last couple of years I've done so many new things. We only found out about it on Friday, managed to get a flight and got out here on Sunday."
