High profile guests: David and Victoria Beckham attend Gordon Ramsay's Christmas party at the chef's south London home alongside former Spice Girl Emma Bunton and Gavin and Stacey star James Corden

Take one celebrity chef, one football superstar, two Spice girls, add a chubby comic and sprinkle with glitz and glamour to create a Ramsay-style Christmas dinner.

Gordon Ramsay put his recent worries aside to host a glitzy dinner party last night with the likes of David and Victoria Beckham, James Corden and Emma Bunton in attendance.

The Michelin starred chef invited the high-profile guests to his Wandsworth, South London home for his annual Christmas bash.

Dressing up: Victoria opted for a black and orange fur jacket while David opted for an English heritage look complete with a brown cravat in his top pocket. Cruz rugged up against the elements with a Christmas hat

David Beckham drove his wife and sons to the party but tellingly it was Victoria who took the car keys when heading home.

The former Spice Girls star braved the cold in a black and brown fur coat while David dressed smartly for the occasion in an English heritage jacket complete with a brown cravat.

And although the group has had their fair share of ups and downs this year there was plenty to celebrate with David’s recent Sports Personality of the Year Lifetime achievement award and two couples expecting babies in the New Year.

Baby Spice Emma joined her former bandmate Victoria alongside long term boyfriend Jade Jones.

The singer, who is pregnant with her second child, looked chic in a black coat with fur trim, a patent Mulberry Bayswater handbag, adding a splash of colour with hot pink heels.

Jade, who is a chef who has worked at Claridges where Ramsay has his restaurant, offering Emma a helping hand as they got out of the car.

Funny man Corden brought some humour to the group and was joined by his pregnant girlfriend Julia Carey.

The Gavin and Stacey star also brought gifts clutching two Marc Jacobs bags and cards as he arrived at the house.

Tana greeted guests from the front door with an f-word quote, taken from Ramsay’s kitchen nightmares, alluding the chef’s fiery temper and bad language.

But behind the Christmas decorations and festive celebrations it has been a testing year for the Ramsays.

The couple experienced considerable strain on their marriage after Gordon sacked Chris Hutcheson, Tana’s father, in October.

Mr Hutcheson, 62, is suing the celebrity chef for £2million, seeking damages for unfair dismissal after being sacked as CEO of Gordon Ramsay holdings.

His financial nightmares continue as he it emerged earlier this month that he is facing being sued for more then £1million for failing to carry out a speaking tour in New Zealand.

The Beckhams have also had a trying time this year as new allegations were made in a U.S. magazine claiming he slept with a prostitute.

David has denied the claims and is suing the magazine.

The group put their worries aside to enjoy the festive bash and spirits will most certainly have been lifted by the newest member of their fold.

The Beckhams and the Ramsays have been firm friends for many years and Victoria and Emma go back to their spice girl days.

But recently comedian Corden has become a regular addition, becoming particularly close to David.

The LA Galaxy star was the recipient of one of Marc Jacobs gift bags the TV star brought to the party.
