Some of our top female fashionistas stole the show in London last night, as a host of stars walked the red carpet for the Bafta TV Awards.

Irish writer Sharon Horgan, who was nominated for an award and Dublin presenters Angela Scanlon and Laura Whitmore turned heads at the glitzy bash.

No stranger to red carpet events, host Laura, from Bray, 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.

There was disappointment as Meath woman Sharon 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.

The brunette writer and actress accentuated the summery look with a gold clutch and accessories and wore her brunette locks in loose waves.

While Sharon may have missed out on a gong, 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.

It was a big night for TV host Tess Daly, who made her first public appearance since her husband Vernon Kay's sexting scandal broke last month. The presenter's marriage was hit by fresh speculation after it was revealed that Kay had been texting glamour model Rhian Sugden for a second time, six years after the original sexting scandal.

While she was without her TV presenter husband, Daly was all smiles at the bash as her Strictly Come Dancing show picked up a coveted award.

The BBC programme beat off stiff competition from Britain's Got Talent to take home its first ever Bafta for entertainment programme.

Strictly host Daly said they were "genuinely shocked" as she took to the stage to collect the award.

The 41-year-old looked stunning in a floor-length gown.

The blonde presenter's slim figure was accentuated with a silver belt, while a revealing split showed off her toned legs.

Well-known faces from the British TV industry were out well represented, including Downton Abbey star Hugh Bonneville and his wife Lulu Williams.

Strictly Come Dancing star Alesha Dixon was one of the best dressed of the night, showing off her impressive figure in a tight-fitting, cut-out yellow frock.

Reality TV stars, including Made in Chelsea's Lucy Watson and Binky Felstead, were also out in force at London's Royal Festival Hall.
