Time to refuel: Exhausted Gemma Atkinson munches on crisps as she exits the Strictly launch... while leggy Mollie King and Alexandra Burke slip into flirty thigh-flashing looks

It was a night full of world-class entertainment and stellar dance routines from the Strictly contestants.

So it's little wonder that this year's cohort would have worked up an appetite after dancing the night away at the BBC studios in London after the Strictly Come Dancing launch on Monday.

Gemma Atkinson, 32, was seen refuelling with a bag of crisps as she hopped into her cab home, while Mollie King and Alexandra Burke put on leggy displays.

Stripped of sequins and her glamorous frock, the former The Saturdays singer, 30, flashed her abs in a crop top underneath her sexy dungarees.

The pop star drew attention to her legs when she left the building in the thigh-skimming beige garment, teamed with towering platform heel sandals.

Making her exit as stylish as her entrance, the Issues hitmaker accessorised her leaving look with a chic black choker.

Now off duty, the singing sensation gave off casual glamour vibes when she let her golden locks down in loose waves.

Keep it casual in khaki like Mollie King

As one of the hottest recruits of the forthcoming series of Strictly, Mollie King will probably be featuring a lot more in our feed. Great news as Mollie has a keen eye for style. Here she is in a black and khaki getup, complete with strappy sandals, a choker, bralet and, of, course, a brilliant playsuit.

Playsuits are great for this time of year. Super comfortable and easy-to-wear, they're also really versatile. On holiday, pop one over your swimsuit for the beach and when the temperature drops a little, pair with a plain white tee for a casual take on off-duty cool.

We've got lots of different styles for you to try below. If, like Mollie, you prefer something sleeveless, try Missguided's strappy khaki number. This one's little more evening friendly. Team with a pair of gold sandals and statement earrings for your last minute holiday evening look. If you're partial to a longer sleeve, opt for Zara's jumpsuit. We love the belted detail. Come winter you can wear it with black opaques and a beaten up pair of biker boots, too!

 Good Morning Britain's Charlotte Hawkins switched her broadcasting responsibilities to walk down with Reverend Richard Coles. 

Stunning in an eye-catching blue dress, the TV star set the mood for Coles who did his best to follow her lead with some moves of his own. 

Ruth Langsford left her husband Eamonn Holmes behind at ITV studios as she put on a fun display with Davood Ghadami.

The TV presenter worked her flirty banter with the hunk as she gave him the side eye while strutting forth.

No doubt, Langsford, who usually favours a more reserved look for her TV commitments, stunned in her daringly low-cut number which boasted the illusion of a semi-sheer bodice. 

The bardot style number bared her flawless decolletage and complemented her shoulder length blonde tresses which were styled in glamorous curls.
