Jack Vetriano and guest
After the awards, there was the incredible Charity Auction, with all proceeds going to STV appeal supporting Scotland's children. The main talking point of the auction was the fantastic Jack Vettriano painting that had been specially commissioned for the night - named "Late Night Rituals II." Having generated much interest in the art world, the painting on the night was in a fierce bidding war, and Jack himself being present to congratulate the successful bidder.
