Anyone who's anyone has got their glad rags on for the TV Bafta's

The red carpet was rolled out for TV’s finest talent on Sunday night to mark the TV BAFTA’s in London’s Drury Lane and, as normal, the stars did not disappoint in their glad rags.

It seemed everyone was going for the black and sheer vibe – sticking to the bench mark set by last week’s Met Gala in New York.

Rochelle Humes walked the red-carpet without her man Marvin Humes but looked stunning in a sheer and lace Zeynep Kartal dress.

Then there was Katie Piper in another flesh-revealing frock, Hollyoaks Jennifer Metcalfe showing off her figure in a cut-out gown. Strictly Come Dancing host Tess Daly also opted for sheer, and posed up with her friend and co-host Claudia Winkleman, while Denise Van Outen also played it safe in black.

Those who bought a bit more colour to the springtime red carpet included the stunning Lucy Mecklenburgh who attend with gymnast boyfriend Louis Smith. Michelle Keegan also looked gorgous in a peppermint green gown from the high streets House Of Fraser.

While the gongs are, of course, the infamous gold faces, silver seemed to be another fashion theme of the night with Poldark‘s Eleanor Tomlinson in a soft silver gown with feather detailing and Made in Chelsea‘s Rosie Fortescue wearing a Julien Macdonald dress.

And while we all like to look at the gorgeous gowns, anyone who’s anyone in TV was there for more serious stuff, like who’s going to get the gongs.

As at every TV Awards, it is always a fight between EastEnders and Coronation Street and this Sunday’s BAFTA TV Awards is no different. In the category for best soap or continuing drama, William Hill make EastEnders the 2/5 favourite after a number of juicy storylines – including “who killed Lucy Beale” which attracted upwards of £4m worth of betting.

Other favourites to walk away with some bling for their mantel piece also included Sherlock‘s Benedict Cumberbatch, The C Word‘s Sheridan Smith for her role in Cilla.
