Braless Mollie King is simply stunning in semi-sheer petticoat dress... as she and The Saturdays bandmate Vanessa White bring the glamour to the NTAs

They have stayed firm friends following their days in girlband The Saturdays. 

And Mollie King and Vanessa White were no doubt thrilled to be reunited at the National Television Awards, held at London's O2 Arena on Tuesday night, as they brought the glamour to the red carpet for the star-studded affair.

Strictly Come Dancing star Mollie looked simply stunning as she chose to forgo her lingerie underneath a semi-sheer gown, while Vanessa channeled old school glamour.

Stepping out for the calendar highlight, Mollie dazzled in her stunning gown that made sure to frame her svelte physique before billowing out around her legs, with its pleated petticoat skirt. 

The beauty appeared to go braless underneath the semi-sheer design's lattice bodice and teased a glimpse of sideboob, as she posed with her hand on her hip on arrival. 

Mollie paired her frock with a pair of platform nude peep-toe heels and wore her blonde locks down to fall past her shoulders in a voluminous style, while swept over to one side.

She completed her red carpet look with an immaculate make-up look that made sure to highlight her enviably dewy and flawless complexion. Mollie favoured contoured cheeks and a subtle smoke-eye, before finishing off her glamour with a slick of shimmering nude lipstick.

Beaming from ear-to-ear, Mollie, who starred on Strictly's series last year and just narrowly missed out on a place in the final, seemed in high spirits as she joined a slew of celebrities at the awards ceremony. 

Among the guests had been her former The Saturdays bandmate Vanessa.

Vanessa made sure all eyes were on her, thanks to her vintage ensemble that appeared to draw inspiration from the old Hollywood era. 

Her two-tone frock came complete with a plunging neckline, that drew attention to her assets, and blue lace that framed her incredibly gym-honed frame and teased a look at her toned torso with its semi-sheer panels on either side. 

Vanessa's frock then sheathed her figure, thanks to its sophisticated black skirt, that gathered together at her feet.

She wore her raven-hued tresses in a style reminiscent of '50s glamour, pinned back on one side, and sported a slick of statement red lipstick across her lips to offset her gown. 

Vanessa was there to represent I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here, after starring on the reality series in 2017. 

The show had been won by Made In Chelsea beauty Georgia 'Toff' Toffolo and as the class of 2017 turned out in support of the show, Vanessa enjoyed a reunion with her former campmate Rebekah Vardy, who dazzled in a feathered pink gown. 

I'm A Celebrity was successful on the night, beating off the likes of Great British Bake Off, MasterChef and ITV2 dating series Love Island. 

Hosts Ant and Dec had accepted the award on stage, with last year's I'm A Celebrity stars, as winner Toff gushed: 'We had such a ball and to finish that off with that NTA, thank you, thank you, thank you!'

Mollie, meanwhile, was representing Strictly and appeared to arrive without her rumoured beau AJ Pritchard. She and the dancer have been romantically linked following their appearance last series. 

The duo have set tongues wagging with their cosy displays of late, but have maintained that their relationship is purely platonic.  

Addressing their close relationship during a recent appearance on Lorraine, the starlet said: 'You spend 12 hours a day together and you do become so close. You do really have to trust your partner.'

Mollie also spoke about the scrutiny she faced on the show, while talking about celebrities on Dancing On Ice. She added: 'There's definitely a lot of attention when you're on one of these shows.

'Obviously romance rumours as well as obviously everything that comes along with it, you know the scrutiny and being judged on national TV, it's terrifying but it's the most amazing experience.' 

Returning host Dermot O'Leary fronted the National Television Awards that were 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.

The presenting gig helped launch Scarlett's TV career in 2017, as she went onto front the revamped Streetmate dating show, as well as landing a gig on Saturday Night Takeaway. 

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.'

Paul O’Grady: For The Love Of Dogs 

 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.'

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.

Thrilled with the gong, Phil gushed: 'We love getting up very very early in the mornings even when it is cold and dark, so we can work on a show that we are so proud of and I can work with someone who I absolutely adore.'

Holly made sure to add: 'I am lucky to work with not only one of my best friends and one of the best teams in the business... you are the best, we love you!'

While Broadchurch triumphed in the Crime Drama category, Doctor Foster took home the award for Best Drama presented by Stranger Things stars Natalia Dyer and Charlie Heaton.

Suranne Jones, who plays the role of Dr Gemma Foster, also came up trumps in the Drama Performance category for her role in the series. 'What a night, we are so thrilled,' she gushed.

Simon Cowell, meanwhile, found himself with two nods in the Talent Show category, with both Britain's Got Talent and The X Factor nominated for the prize. They will battle it out against Strictly Come Dancing and The Voice UK - following its channel move to ITV from the BBC.

But he found himself coming up short, as David Walliams beat him for the second year running in the TV Judge category, while Strictly Come Dancing took home the gong for Talent Show.

'The viewers mean so much to us, if we didn't have you we wouldn't have Strictly, this is for you,' Tess Daly said on accepting the prize. 

Success! I'm A Celebrity beat the likes of Great British Bake Off, MasterChef and Love Island

Following her list of thanks, Tess added: 'Last, but not least, I would like to dedicate this award to my friend and yours, the one and only Bruce Forsyth. Thank you for the memories.'

Dame Julia Walters was met with a great reception as she graced the stage to present Serial Drama - a category made up of the nation's favourite soaps; EastEnders, Coronation Street, Emmerdale and Hollyoaks.

The award-winning actress revealed: 'I am a huge soap fan so this is a big thrill for me!' before revealing Emmerdale had triumphed over its rival shows to be awarded the gong.

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.
