Monochrome magic: Katherine Jenkins and Tess Daly
The ladies in particular had dressed to impress as they flew the flag for their country. Newly-engaged Katherine chose a chic and sophisticated black belted dress with a white collar, adding a pop of colour with blue-capped heels. Tess, 44, also embraced a monochrome theme, stepping out in a printed jumpsuit.
Game of Thrones actress Natalie Dormer, meanwhile, chose a broderie anglaise navy and white dress that fell to the knee, while Danielle Lineker looked summery in a white skirt suit.
Singer Eliza Doolittle turned heads in a multi-coloured Vivienne Westwood design that she teamed with a bright blue bag and matching nails.
