The Irish took over the red carpet last night as a host of our own attended the glittering Bafta TV Awards in London.

Writer Sharon Horgan, who was nominated for an award, and presenters Angela Scanlon and Laura Whitmore turned heads at the glamorous bash.

Whitmore set the trend in a figure-hugging black jump suit. The 30-year-old added a 70s twist to her look with the flared suit, while she wore her loose locks around her shoulders.

But there was disappointment for Horgan as she missed out on a Bafta for her Channel 4 comedy 'Catastrophe'. However, she was a big winner in the style stakes.

With the jumpsuit look proving a popular wardrobe choice on the night, Sharon won major style points for her floral plunge-neck number.

Dublin hunk and 'Poldark' star Aidan Turner was celebrating after the show scooped the Radio Times audience award, voted for by members of the public.

Other winners on the night included Mark Rylance for best actor in 'Wolf Hall' and Suranne Jones for best actress in 'Doctor Foster'. 'This Is England 90' won for best mini-series while 'EastEnders' picked up best soap/drama. Have I Got News For You was chosen best comedy show.
