The Raddison Hotel Heathrow witnessed  a flurry of full length ball gowns and snappy cocktail dresses when Jeff Banks hosted the annual Debenhams Retail Awards ceremony. Two hundred and fifty managers and executives crammed the ballroom for Debenhams equivalent of the Oscars.

Regional awards were abundant but the night belonged to Peter Rodgers from Manchester who won the award of Manager of the Year. 

Jeff delivered the evening as usual with shed loads of witty banter mainly aimed at winners and sponsors alike.

Rob Templeman didn't escape unscathed as he picked up a special Life Time Achievement Award.
