Fleur East gives a cheeky performance in plunging red mini dress and fishnets at Trafford Centre Christmas Lights switch on

Fleur East got into the festive spirit in a very cheeky way at the Trafford Centre Christmas Lights switch on, on Thursday evening. 

The X Factor runner-up gave an energetic performance in a  plunging bright red mini dress teamed with fishnet tights. 

She also showed off her pert posterior during one segment of her dance when her frock rode up to reveal matching red underwear.

Fleur was also given the task of switching the £1 million worth of lights on.

'I love Christmas,' she told the Manchester Evening News. 'It’s my favourite time of the year. I cannot wait to eat all the amazing food it’s the best part of it.'

Festive colours: Kym sported a bright red outfit in keeping with the festive theme 

Kym Marsh co-hosted the annual event with Key 103 breakfast DJ Mike Toolan. 

The 40-year-old Coronation Street star looked the picture of sophistication as she arrived for the event. 

She wore her dark brown tresses in a chic updo  while her eyes were lined with smokey black eye make-up.

A slick of glossy nude lipstick completed the look.   

Meanwhile, Kym - who plays Michelle Connor on the soap - was recently forced to deny claims she was thinking of quitting Corrie, calling the reports 'ridiculous' and 'sensationalised'. 

Her denial came after she told Daily Star Sunday that she had considered leaving the show earlier in the year, confessing: 'I thought about it for a long time. It was obviously a huge decision.'

Kym's contract is up for renewal in June, and she admitted that every year she worries about whether she'll be asked to stay on.

She said: 'It’s always something that when you are at the end of a contract, you are thinking ‘Are they going to want me to stay? What do I do?

'That’s always something that people think. Having been on the show for 10 years, you do sit there and go, ‘Would I want to? Would I like to?'
