The Loose Women panellist has previously spoken about her friendship with Caine: "Michael is a complete legend. I was very nervous of him when I first met him, he's a huge fan of my husband's work.

"I became very good friends with Shakira with his wife. We see them as regularly as possible and I adore him - it's my favorite shot in the world when I get papped with Michael Caine because I feel so cool!"

Caine was also pictured leaving the party with the help of a walker which he has used to get around since having back surgery in 2021.
