Michelle Keegan puts glamour first on the sub-zero NTAs red carpet before joining British TV babes Holly Willoughby, Amanda Holden and Vicky Pattison for the afterparty
The temperatures may have been dipping in London, but the cream of television's beauties didn't let it hinder their red carpet appearances on Wednesday night, nor did it dampen their spirits at the afterparty.
Turning out for the annual, ultra-glamorous National Television Awards at The O2, blonde bombshells Holly Willoughby and Amanda Holden kept things classic in black and white floor-skimming frocks, while bold brunettes Vicky Pattison and Michelle Keegan went all out Hollywood glamour.
Television's small screen beauties were certainly taking the red carpet by storm, competing just as much in the style stakes as some of them were for NTA gongs; though when the wins were all said and done, it was time for the stars to rub shoulders at the afterparty.

All smiles: Michelle Keegan cut a slender profile, showing off her stomach as she spun 360 in a backless and belly-baring dress
A touch on the Bollywood side, NTA-nominated Michelle dressed in an unorthodox belly-baring dress, no doubt holding high hopes that her nod would come to fruition that night and she could take the stage in the ensemble.
The former Coronation Street star arrived with her husband Mark Wright, cutely co-ordinating in navy, but left him on the sidelines while she enjoyed a few solo snaps before heading into the star-studded venue.
Doing a 360 for the cameras, the NTA hopeful - who's nominated in the Best Drama category for Ordinary Lies - revealed a bralet at the back as her caped-style dress slashed just as much from behind as it did in the front.
While breakfast TV presenter Holly's frock did more to cover up her shape, it did nothing to hide her curves and the blonde bombshell affectionately named 'Holly Willoughbooby' showed off her hourglass shape in bright white.

Similarly, an ultra-glamorous Vicky - who's earned her spot on the NTA's red carpet thanks to an impressive win in the jungle last year - plumped for the same striking shape.
She was far from the Australian outback and ramped up an old Hollywood image with flowing gown, though it proved to be pretty tricky for the former Geordie Shore star to walk in.
Jorgie Porter's appearance, meanwhile, was close to stealing the limelight with a Kim Kardashian-inspired bodysuit flashing underneath, while a pregnant Emma Willis was more keen to keep certain things covered.
Quite the contrary, television presenter Emma was doing her best to disguise her middle as she picked out a structured dress that skimmed over her baby bump.

In full bloom, the star wore flowers on her gown to distract from the fact that she's expecting her third child with husband Matt Willis in the next couple of months.
Emma looked radiant despite recently juggling presenting jobs on The Voice and Celebrity Big Brother, along with her Heart radio show and two young children.
One such television star who's also done the rounds on the small screen towards the end of last year, is Jorgie, who ended 2015 with an appearance on I'm A Celebrity.
The petite blonde hopped over to ITV to feature in the Australian-outback reality show, which was quite a contrast to her regular home of Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks.

Back with a bang: After a few years away from the red carpet, Coronation Street's Tina O'Brien was back with a bang
Jorgie certainly wasn't in jungle mode on Wednesday night, as she channeled her inner Kim K and plumped for a shimmering sheer frock that flashed straight through to a strapless bodysuit.
The blonde cinched in her middle with a metallic belt that helped to pull together the top-toe silver look, which also included shimmering shoes, a rocky ponytail cone and a studded head piece.
Despite flying solo, Vogue Williams was owning her red carpet moment with crimson shoes on to lead the way and a glamorous waterfall skirt trailing behind her.
Though keeping her neckline high, the stunning model's outfit was capped off with dazzling Thomas Sabo bracelets to add that final air of elegance.
Vogue was without her estranged husband Brian McFadden, with whom she's said to have just spent Christmas despite their ongoing divorce after almost three years together.

Closely following her on the arrivals front, was reality TV beauty Jessica Wright, who put her heartbreak over Nanny Patt's death to one side as she made her first red carpet appearance.
Jessica was smouldering in a floor-length black dress; her hair slicked back and her make-up contoured perfectly to highlight her best features.
Her dress, which featured a blue lining and a racy split in the front, plunged to her middle to reveal her ample assets while a matching black collar detail added a little of-the-moment touch.
Though she was representing the ITVBe programme along with co-star Danielle Armstrong, Jessica and her reality TV friends have not been nominated for an NTA this year.

Losing out to the competition, including Made In Chelsea, I'm A Celebrity and Take Me Out in the Entertainment Programme category, the Essex-based show has not been given recognition this year.
Those who will be feeling hopeful, are 14-time National Television Award winners Ant & Dec, whose I'm A Celeb and Britain's Got Talent see them nominated three times this year alongside their annual node for TV Presenter.
They will face strong competition for their 15th win, with newcomers Marvin Humes for The Voice, and Claudia Winkleman for Strictly Come Dancing gracing the category this year.
Hoping to be recognised for Drama, Ordinary Lies' Michelle Keegan and Broadchurch's David Tenant are pitted against Hollywood royalty as 50 Shades Of Grey star Jamie Dornan has also been recognised.

The stage was set for the NTAs early on Wednesday, with the Britain's Got Talent judges front and centre; no doubt busy keeping a close check on the cream of the television crop to hit the stage at the annual awards ceremony.
Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden - the fabulous female duo of the BGT panel who recently rejoined Simon Cowell and David Walliams for the forthcoming 2016 series - were sat beside each other.
Behind them, Radio 1 DJ and, more recently, X Factor judge Nick Grimshaw was behind them beside last year's runners up Reggie 'N' Bollie, who were no doubt celebrating.
Just that day, the Ghanian duo were given a recording contract by Syco boss Simon, after just missing victory in the 2015 final, competing in the X Factor Groups category, and ultimately losing out to Louisa Johnson.
