Es-sex Appeal! TOWIE's Amber Turner puts on VERY leggy display in a thigh-skimming split black skirt that leaves little to the imagination at the NTAs

A slew of glam TOWIE stars made a glamorous appearance on the red carpet at the National Television Awards on Tuesday evening - including Megan McKenna, Danielle Armstrong and Amber Turner.

And the latter put on an incredibly leggy display as she strutted into the event in a thigh-skimming black skirt.

The flowing number featured a long side-split which trailed behind Amber in the blustery evening air, showing off her long bronzed pins, giving a glimpse of a cheeky thigh and her pert behind.

The gown featured a semi-sheer champagne and black lace top, with tiny spaghetti straps and a busty front, teasing the reality starlet's ample cleavage.

The 24-year-old finished off the look with black strapped stilettos.

She wore her long blonde locks in light waves, loosely cascading down her bare back and dusted her complexion with bronzer.

Sweeping her eyes with mascara, she matched the carpet with a loud pop of red on her lips.

Returning host Dermot O'Leary fronted the event which was broadcast live on ITV from London's O2 Arena.

Former Made In Chelsea star Georgia Toffolo replaced Scarlett Moffatt as backstage host for 2018, after stealing her crown as queen of the jungle on I'm A Celebrity 2017. 

Meanwhile, Love Island stars Kem Cetinay and Chris Hughes hosted the glittering red carpet and entertained fans with an amusing video that aired out mid-show.  

TV double act Ant & Dec were the superstars of the night, sweeping the board with three gongs. They took home the TV Presenter prize for a record-breaking 17th time, beating the likes of their good friends Holly Willoughby, Phillip Schofield and Bradley Walsh.

Having endured a turbulent year when it comes to his personal life, Ant reflected on his troubling time of late on accepting the honour, as he told the crowd and viewers at home: 'Thank you, I’m shaking… It’s been quite a year, a tough 12 months, so winning this really means a lot, to my family and friends, some of who are here tonight, thanks very much, and to this man, I love you thank you.'

Dec added: ' Possibly this year more than any other, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.' 

The presenters enjoyed another successful win for I'm A Celebrity, that was honoured with the Challenge Show award, and Ant and Dec found themselves the winners of the first Bruce Forsyth Entertainment Award with their show Saturday Night Takeaway. 

The showbiz veteran sadly passed away in August last year, aged 89, following a long illness and a battle with bronchial pneumonia. Sir Bruce is loved around the country for his 75-year TV career presenting shows including The Generation Game, Play Your Cards Right and Strictly.

His legacy was honoured when Strictly Come Dancing returned to screens in September, with the show's professional dancers performing a routine in tribute, before Bruce's best moments from his time on the series were played.

Seal gave a touching performance of I've Got You Under My Skin ahead of the prize being awarded, while Bruce's wife Wilnelia took to the stage to present the award. 

Making the likes of Bruce's old Strictly co-host, Tess Daly, well up, Wilnelia said: 'I wish I wouldn’t have to be standing here this evening in front of you, but I’m so proud and honoured that this special award is named after my darling Bruce. 

'I know he would have loved it, showbusiness was his life, he would be saying to all of you it’s been nice to see you, to see you nice.' 

Special honour: Sir Bruce Forsyth, who passed away in 2017, will be honored in a new entertainment category

Despite each losing out on the TV Presenter award, Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield enjoyed success, as This Morning bagged the Daytime prize once again, beating the likes of The Chase, The Jeremy Kyle Show and Loose Women.

Sir David Attenborough and veteran entertainment star Paul O'Grady were both honoured at the awards with special honours. 

Sir David scooped up the Impact Award for his work on BBC series Blue Planet 2. Speaking of the show, he said: 'It was my job, my privilege to provide the words for that series, you know and I know that what countered in that series is the pictures, the pictures were created by the camera men and women who dived into the ocean to get it, who spent three/four years in doing so. 

'They raise the issue that is of great importance not only in this country but worldwide. If our television programmes have helped stir the conscious of people around the world then all of us will be very pleased.'

Paul, meanwhile, was honoured with the Special Recognition award for his work with Battersea Cats & Dogs home on his series Paul O'Grady: For The Love Of Dogs.
