Gorby's big bash.

THE stars came out for a gala bash organised by the wife of former Soviet president Mikhail Gorbachev.

Former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell, actors Anna Friel and Rhys Ifans and social activist Jemima Khan were along the celebrity guests at last night's Raisa Gorbachev Foundation Gala at Hampton Court Palace in London.

The event is the main fundraiser for the charity, which raises cash for children with cancer in Russia and the UK.

The gala was also used to celebrate Mr Gorbachev's 80th birthday.

He was Soviet Premier from 1988 until the country was dissolved in 1991.
