It may be renowned for acknowledging TV’s top talent and bringing out some of the most entertaining personalities in the industry – but some of the stars on the red carpet for the National Television Awards last night provided entertainment for all the wrong reasons.
The soap star, 29, turned heads in a black voluminous crop top, tied with bows, that put her toned stomach on full display.
She wore it with a coordinating maxi skirt, which was sheer to allow a glimpse at her lithe legs underneath and boasted plenty of ruffles for added drama.
Others also opted for over-the-top tulle numbers, including Geordie Shore star Marnie Simpson, who opted for a corseted lace gown with a glamorous tulle train for her show-stopping appearance.
The dusky pink number nipped in at her tiny waist before falling to the ground with a leg-baring asymmetric hem.
Katie McGlynn, best known for playing Sinead in Coronation Street, opted for black ruffles in a crop top and skirt co-ord paired with a pearl headband
Stars including Marnie Simpson and Julia Bradbury opted for ruffles and netting as they graced the red carpet, with Marnie’s dress having a corset bodice
Former model and TV presenter Lisa Snowdon, who was recently crowned Celebrity Masterchef champion, wore a shimmering silver sequin gown
Marnie rocked a full fringe with her glossy raven locks tumbling to her waist and opted for a shimmering makeup palette.
She boosted her height with a pair of perspex heels, embellished with glitzy bows and posed for photos.
This year’s NTAs were broadcast live from a brand new venue of Wembley’s OVO Arena with Joel Dommett hosting.
Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby were booed by some members of the audience at the National Television Awards when This Morning was announced as a contender for the Best Daytime Award.
The presenters found themselves at the centre of the ‘queuegate’ controversy’ in September when they were accused of skipping the queue to see the Queen lying in state, which they both denied.
Line of Duty’s Vicky McClure arrived at the National Television Awards 2022 in a bronze, floor-length dress that was ruched at the waist
Despite the criticism the broadcasters received, the show still took home the Daytime gong, with Phillip saying the award means ‘so much to us every year, especially this year’.
Other notable winners at the ceremony – held at the OVO Arena in Wembley, London – included Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly for Best Presenter, Anton Du Beke for TV Judge, Peaky Blinders for Returning Drama and Emmerdale for Serial Drama.
Taking to the stage after the win, Phillip said: ‘Please don’t think we ever get complacent and please don’ t think we ever take it for granted. This means so much to us every year, especially this year. We have the best boss.’
Holly added: ‘This Morning has a very special relationship with you, you make our show for us, you really do. All these guys on the stage here, Alison [Hammond] and Dermot [O’Leary], Rochelle [Humes] and Vernon [Kay], Josie [Gibson], everyone. Thank you for all your support.
Elsewhere, Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnnelly took home their 21st consecutive Best Presenter award and the Bruce Forsyth award.
Katie Price wore a black gown with a glittered, puffed skirt and a long sleeved turtleneck top, paired with wide black patent belt
Star of Strictly Come Dancing Amy Dowden wore her golden locks in curls and opted for a stunning subtle smokey eye, but her pink, puffed dress embellished with beads and sequins was an unusual outfit choice
Eastenders star Danielle Harold, who plays Albert Square favourite Lola, opted for a shiny black minidress gathered at the waist, paired with diamante accessories
Unfortunately, the TV duo were not there to accept their awards as they have both fallen ill with Covid and had to stay at home.
The Bruce Forsyth Award went to I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! with Emmerdale star Danny Miller who won last year’s series accepting the gong along with several other stars from the 21st season.
Danny said: ‘On behalf of Ant and Dec who have Covid so they can’t be here tonight, Stephen Mulhern is in the crowd so I’m not sure why he’s not accepting for them.
‘I’d like to say on behalf of the crew and castmates, although we had to have an evacuation, they managed to get us back on and we all got paid.’
‘A massive thank you to everyone who voted and everyone who made the show what it is. A massive thanks to the cast and crew and best of luck back in Australia.’
The show was nominated alongside The Graham Norton Show, Taskmaster and Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway.
