The style highs and lows of the National TV Awards

The National Television Awards is one of the biggest nights for the glitterati of TV – and making a statement on the red carpet is all part of the package.

We take a look at some of the fashion trends of the evening.

Baby bumps

Baby bumps were one of the must have ‘accessories’ of the evening, as modelled by Broadchurch star Jodie Whittaker, TV presenter Julia Bradbury (who’s having twins) and EastEnders’ Jacqueline Jossa.

Green goddesses

One way to stand out on a red carpet is to wear a contrasting colour. And why go for boring black when you can shimmer in rich emerald.
