They’re due to get married to one another so Millie Mackintosh is of course already very proud of her man.
But that was even more so the case on Wednesday night when she turned out to support husband-to-be Professor Green as he launched his new nightclub, INK.
The rapper has joined forces with celebrity mixologist Gerry Calabrese to open the bar in Leicester Square, with the remit of having ‘an East End club in the heart of the West End’.
And while Millie was originally known for her west London routes as part of the Made In Chelsea cast, she now seems at home in Professor Green’s haunts.
She of course dressed to impress for the night out, having come straight from the Very.co.uk launch earlier in the evening.
Guests enjoyed DJ performances from Laura Whitmore and Gizzi Erskine, while Emile Sande, Lisa Moorish, Diana Vickers, Wretch 32, Tara Ferry, Naughty Boy, Reg Traviss, Zoe Hardman, Mista Jam, Sam Young, Sarah Jane Crawford, and Carl Barat were amongst those who came to celebrate the exciting launch.
They were also treated to Ciroc and Hoxton Gin cocktails.
East end boys Stephen Manderson A.K.A Professor Green, Gerry Calabrese and brother Jon Calabrese hosted celebrity friends and guests at their new 5th floor venue, positioned in the centre of London at number 1 Leicester Square.
The tattoo inspired venue was brought to life with art works by the trios choice tattoo artists Nikole Lowe and Neil Ahern, alongside graffiti murals and bespoke neon sculptures by Chris Bracey, which vividly captured the east end scene.
Man of the moment Professor Green, fresh from the festival circuit arrived wearing all black with trademark Puma trainers and of course displaying his very own body INK.
Before heading into the club to host friends and guests Professor Green posed with business partners Gerry and Jon Calabrese.
Bride-to-be Millie arrived at the venue with Made in Chelsea bestie Rosie Fortescue, who was wearing an All Saints and Zara ensemble.
Stephen was quick to appear as his fiancée arrived and met her downstairs at the entrance.
Millie looked stunning sporting a strapless Zimmermann dress and was grinning from to ear to ear when there was any mention about her upcoming nuptials.
It was her first time seeing the finished venue and exclaimed: ‘I am in love with this place. I think I will end up spending most of my married life here!’
Emeli Sande arrived to support her mates and was keeping it East with black skinny jeans, a velvet blue bomber jacket, yellow head wrap and AirMax trainers to match.
Gizzi Erskine was the first DJ to perform in a gorgeous embellished black velvet frock by Lily Allen’s line Lucy In Disguise.
The TV chef is enjoying her new gig djing and played a set of rock’n roll 60’s tune which went perfectly with her signature bee hive hairdo.
MTV Presenter Laura Whitmore was event hopping arriving from another bash – looking summery in a floral print silk playsuit after changing out of her earlier monochrome number.

Laura Whitmore soon followed and hit the decks to entertain the crowd, playing a selection of urban sounds in celebration of their pals Stephen, Gerry and Jon’s latest business venture.
Grabbing the mic and putting a pause on the party, Professor Green gave a shout out of thanks to those who made the club happen in the tight six week turn around before announcing that INK “wasn’t about bringing the east to the west end it was all about bringing back the soul to Soho!”
