Stars out in force for TV awards bash

SOAP stars and comedy greats walked the red carpet in style at the annual Royal Television Society Awards last night.

Coronation Street and Emmerdale were the only two of the big four soaps to be nominated after they beat off competition from EastEnders and Hollyoaks, who received no nominations.

Emmerdale actress Sammy Winward, who plays Katie Addyman, wowed in a dramatic floor-skimming royal blue cutaway dress.

And sports presenter Gaby Logan turned heads in a mini white dress.

Broadchurch actress Olivia Colman wore a striking metallic block print dress coat and her co-star Jodie Whittaker opted for a navy bias cut design.

Our own Brendan O'Carroll was nominated for the gong for Comedy Performance.

The Dublin comedian recently scooped the Best Comedy award at the National Television Awards at London's O2.
