The Bray native (30) opted for an eye-catching blue jersey gown with a keyhole neckline ahead of her hosting duties for the BBC's You Tube channel tonight. Work clearly comes first for the presenter, who jetted in from New York yesterday after spending four days in the Big Apple for Fashion Week.

She is the first famous Irish face to hit the red carpet as a record number of Irish talent are up for gongs at tonight's award ceremony, including Saoirse Ronan, Michael Fassbender, Lenny Abrahamson who directed Room and Emma O'Donoghue, who wrote the screenplay.

RTE star Angela Scanlon has also nabbed a prestigious presenting role for the British Academy, hosting their red carpet special on BBC Three.
