The stars aimed to raise 75,000 for the Manchester-based charity Once Upon A Smile charity at the event which was in memory of Gavin Blyth who passed away from cancer at the age of 41 in November 2010.
He is best known for his acclaimed stint as Emmerdale's series producer in 2009 and 2010. He had previously worked on Coronation Street, starting out as a story associate before progressing to the role of assistant producer.
The ball, in its secomd year, raised 65,000 last year and was started by Danny Miller, who plays Emmerdale's troubled mechanic Aaron Livesy.

He set up the Once Upon a Smile charity with friend and fellow actor Daniel Jillings last year.
Miller has said: 'Gavin Blyth was an inspirational and passionate producer. But not only that, he was a fantastic man, father, mentor, and friend who was like a brother to me and so many others.
'Despite a year passing, there's still a giant hole left at Emmerdale, so we want to remember Gavin in a fitting way to celebrate his life – and raising money for our new charity Once Upon A Smile.'
Jillings added: 'When Danny and I agreed to set up Once Upon A Smile last year, we had a variety of different reasons for wanting to set it up and for Danny, Gavin (pictured left) was a major factor.
'Once Upon A Smile provides respite breaks for families who have suffered bereavement – whether it's the loss of a child or parent. The impact of bereavement is immense and we do all we can to assist the family by giving them a break away from their current situation, even if it's just for a day, to put smiles back on faces and allow them time to be a family again.'
