Christine and Paddy McGuinness share playful pics

They're still celebrating the success of their inaugural Twinkle Ball

Paddy and Christine McGuinness are still on a high following the success of their charity gala.

The couple raised more than £100,000 for the National Autistic Society with their big bash last week, which was attended by a host of their showbiz friends.

And on Monday, model Christine decided to post some selfies on Instagram in just a bikini to show off the bronzed look she had on the night thanks to a fake tan company.

"Thanks for all of the products you put in our goody bags at our #TwinkleBall and keeping me beautifully bronzed," she wrote beside the pouting selfie she posted on her account.

But her Instagram Stories revealed getting the perfect shot took some time after she was photobombed by her husband!

In one image, the Take Me Out host can be seen bursting into view with a big grin on his face.

"Get out of my selfie," Christine captioned the shot, in which she can be seen looking bemused by her husband's invasion.

Celebs in attendance included comedians Keith Lemon and John Bishop, Real Housewives of Cheshire stars including Tanya Bardsley, and soap stars such as Corrie's Jane Danson and Hollyoaks' Steph Waring.

Paddy and Christine organised the event to raise money and awareness for the National Autistic Society, after their twins, Leo and Penelope, four, were diagnosed with the condition.

They were delighted it was such a success, pulling in more than £100,000 for the charity!

Over the weekend, Paddy, 44, and Christine both shared the same photo on Instagram, showing them cuddled up in bed and beaming up at the camera following the big night.

They also shared identical captions thanking everyone for their support and revealing the evening had been a huge success.

"Good morning! Thank you so much to everyone who contributed to last night's Twinkle Ball," they wrote.

"We were blown away by your love and generosity. I've not got the exact figures yet but I know we raised over 100k for the National Autistic Society and after nearly five years..... we finally got a lie in!!!!!!"

Paddy and Christine shared just one picture from the event, showing the stage, explaining the rest of the images would be published in a glossy magazine this month, which had donated to the National Autistic Society in order to get the pics exclusively.

The couple's four-year-old twins, Leo and Penelope, are on the spectrum, while Christine has said she's also seen signs of autism in their youngest child Felicity, one, but a full diagnosis couldn't be done until she is older.

Christine previously told the Manchester Evening News the idea for the Twinkle Ball came as they wanted to do something for National Autism Awareness month in April, which also marked her 30th birthday.

"I'm not having a party, so I thought right, I'll just organise an even bigger party and raise loads of money for charity instead!" she said.

"We're hoping this can become an annual event, something for the twins to look forward to and you never know in ten years time maybe it could be Leo and Penelope up there thanking people."
