Stylish Nicole shows she has the X Factor at awards

FULL-LENGTH, fabulous, and, for once, no fashion howlers.

Celebrities turned out in full force to recognise 'heroes' across the UK for the annual Pride of Britain awards.

Nicole Scherzinger proved she had the X Factor with a black, lacy floor-length number with a slit just above the knee

Spice Girls Mel C and Emma Bunton sashayed down the red carpet together sporting black and navy numbers.

Irish MTV star Laura Whitmore rocked a full-length green frock -- with a daring peep panel from her chest to her navel. Tess Daly was the latest celeb to 'leg bomb' -- the Strictly host adopted an Angelina Jolie-type red carpet pose alongside her husband Vernon Kay.

Former X Factor winner Alexandra Burke was demure in a white, sheer top with a long figure- hugging black skirt, sporting newly-dyed blonde locks.

And host Carol Vorderman (54) put some va-va-voom into proceedings, wearing a cleavage-enhancing, figure-hugging pink number.
