The temperatures have been hovering around freezing and most people have been bundled up in winter woollies. Britain's Got Talent judges Amanda Holden and Kelly Brook are determined not show fans of the show anything less than their most sophisticated side, though.
A ripple of excitement went through the crowd when, for a third day running, the two beauties turned up for the programme's rehearsals at a Manchester hotel looking perfectly groomed and with bare arms and shapely legs.
Incredibly they'd chosen the same cool hue and sleeveless style of dress. Twenty-nine-year-old Kelly, the new recruit on Simon Cowell's panel, had slipped into a pretty white sheath featuring a floral design, teamed with towering Louboutins.
In 37-year-old Amanda's case her ivory chiffon affair was offset by the golden tan she picked up on her recent honeymoon in the Maldives with husband Chris Hughes. The finishing touch was a gold embossed belt, which emphasised the mother of one's tiny waist.
The man behind the show Simon has commented of his colleagues' chic approach: "I think they are trying to out-dress each other. You know what girls are like."
