ORGANISERS of the Soccer Aid fundraiser have been blasted as ‘tone deaf’ after throwing a lavish showbiz party immediately after appealing for funds to help children hit by poverty, hunger and the war in Ukraine. 

Several of the celebrities who played in the charity game last Sunday were ‘shocked’ at the decision to hold the bash at London’s exclusive, five-star Nobu hotel at a cost of tens of thousands of pounds. 

Stars who attended included Idris Elba, Line Of Duty actress Vicky McClure, One Direction star Liam Payne and the former England footballer Teddy Sheringham. 

As DJs played, guests were treated to free drinks until the early hours of Monday.

Line of Duty actress Vicky McClure was among celebrity guests at the lavish Soccer Aid party, which has been slammed as 'tone deaf' for being held just hours after a fundraiser for Ukraine
