Jacqueline, who's engaged to former TOWIE hunk Dan Osborne, outlined her eyes with heavy mascara and smoky eyeshadow and plumped her pout with a nude lipstick.

She told The Sun: 'It’s absolutely fine, she’s in safe hands with either daddy or nanny, and surprisingly it’s worked out really nicely. I come home and I don’t miss bed time.
Jacqueline even added that her little tot may follow in her thespian footsteps, adding: 'Ella has come to the set a few times, I think she’s going to be an actress.'

Dame Barbara Windsor also took home an award for Best Exit for her emotional departure as the legendary Peggy Mitchell.
She added: 'I was nervous about saying goodbye to Peggy, of course I was. But Peggy's exit was wonderful - I really couldn't have asked for more. The writers spoilt me, they really did!'
Coronation Street also scooped a handful of gongs too, with Connor McIntyre (Pat Phelan) taking home the Best Bad Boy award. Joe Duttine (Tim Metcalfe) secured Funniest Male whilst Shayne Ward was named Best Newcomer.
Speaking after his win, Shayne said: 'It was the cherry on top [after a great year]. I've been blessed to have such great storylines in the first year that I've been here. This just rounds it off.'
