Co-stars hit the red carpet in identical designs

Jessica Fox and Anna Shaffer suffered a rather embarrassing fashion failure last night.

The Hollyoaks girls both rocked up to the National Television Awards in London wearing matching purple maxis.

Featuring a belted waist, sexy front split and cute sleeves, the glam purple floor-sweeping number flattered both actresses.

Despite their mishap, the castmates managed to make the dress their own by accessorising differently.

Jessica, 30, paired her gown with gold sandals and a metallic bag whereas Anna, 21, opted for caged heels and a rectangle clutch.
