A source told The Sun: ‘It was the party to end all parties.

‘No expense was spared. It was opulent, extravagant and utterly brilliant. You couldn’t wish for a grander location — and then Liam took to the stage. 

The rockstar, who took time out of his busy schedule for the special occasion, shocked partygoers: ‘No one knew that he was performing. He brought the house down.’

The white-tie event entertained guests with a ballet and opera performance as they sipped on champagne before lager-loving Liam performed. 

Bobby, who is the co-owner of the discount chain alongside his brothers Simon, 51, and Robin, 36, joined the star on stage during the unforgettable evening. 

B&M was acquired by Simon and Bobby in December 2004 from Phildrew Investments, and this is largely regarded as the turning point in the business.

Their brother Robin later joined them as director, although he is thought to be less involved in the day-to-day running.

The boss and his family are the biggest shareholders in the business, which now has 686 variety stores across the UK and is valued at £5.1billion.

The budget retailer saw a surge in sales during the second national lockdown and subsequent tier regime as the stores benefitted from their ‘essential’ retail status.

Sales at the FTSE 100 discounter across the UK in the 13 weeks to December 26 soared 26.6 per cent on a like-for-like basis top £1.4billion.

The company opened 18 new stores and closed two during the period, creating 500 new jobs – meaning B&M now has 673 stores in the UK.
