Inside Caroline Morahan's Great Gatsby themed LA birthday bash

TV presenter Caroline Morahan celebrated her birthday in style.

The former Off the Rails host held a no expense spared lavish party to mark her 37th birthday in her adopted home of Los Angeles.

Caroline was joined by her husband of two years, Daithi O Caoimh and nearly 200 pals for the fun-filled event, which had a Great Gatsby theme.

She gave Daisy Buchanan a run for her money dressed in 1920s attire, complete with fringe dress and feather headband.

"Loved my Great Gatsby Birthday Party!! Still finding sequins and feathers all over the house! Can't believe my D.I.Y. bob hairstyle stayed in place all night..there was a lot of Charleston and jazz hands action going on!! Bag of clips and a can of Elnett is yer only man," she wrote on Facebook.

The presenter turned actress recently revealed that LA holds a special place in her heart, and always will.

"My eyes were like saucers on that first visit almost five years ago - the spontaneous long weekend 5,000 miles away that prompted me to uproot my entire life just six months later," she wrote in Life Magazine.

"It was the 'yes we can' spirit of the place I found so captivating. I met writers, directors, actors - all people pursuing creative passions in a town where the sun shines year round and birds of paradise grow like daisies. There is nowhere quite like it."

"I couldn't have moved on my own, as I'm a scaredy cat," she previously said. "Being away from my family is the hardest part of all, and it was a difficult transition because we didn't know the place and had walked away from our jobs. I was going there to act and while Daithi had worked in finance here, he didn't have a specific plan. He just knew he wanted to be with me, and took a gamble on me.

"Whatever happens with our careers, he, and my family, are the most important things in my life. He's an amazing person and I can't believe I met him. If it was a choice between winning an Oscar or being with Daithi, I wouldn't even have to think about it. I would be happier with him than I would be with ten Oscars."
