Lily Allen recruited an array of stars for her first London show in three years, performing with Robbie Williams, Chris Martin and Keane's Tim Rice-Oxley during her five-song set at the Under One Roof charity show at Hammersmith Apollo last night (December 19)

Allen, dressed in a sparkling silver dress, opened her set performing 'The Fear' with Chris Martin on acoustic guitar and cheerleading – ''she's Number One!" Martin told the crowd. She then announced ''look who it is!" as Robbie Williams emerged to sing 'Dream A Little Dream' from his 'Swing Both Ways' album.

After a performance of 'LDN' from her 2006 debut 'Alright, Still', she then played recent hit 'Hard Out Here', for which she was joined by gyrating dancers similar to those from the song's controversial video. Her short set closed with Keane's Tim Rice-Oxley joining her on piano to play Allen's cover of the band's 'Somewhere Only We Know' from the Christmas John Lewis advert, currently Number One in the charts.

The evening, organised by Coldplay in aid of the children's charity, also featured sets from Rizzle Kicks, magician Dynamo, Ricky Gervais' comedy band David Brent And Foregone Conclusion and Coldplay themselves, who played a 45-minute set of greatest hits and Christmas songs, including 'Viva La Vida', 'Clocks', 'Fix You', 'The Scientist' and 'Paradise'.

Lily Allen played:

'The Fear' (with Chris Martin)
'Dream A Little Dream' (with Robbie Williams)
'Hard Out Here'
'Somewhere Only We Know'
