On a night where bright colours, mini skirts and plunging necklines seemed to be the order of the day, Billie Piper's understated look put her ahead of the rest at the annual TV Quick awards.

The Secret Diary Of A Call Girl star was the image of sophistication at the London ceremony in a pair of ultra skinny jeans and an elegant cream jacket.

And finishing off the mum-of-one's stylish look was her unfussy 'do – her two tone brunette-to-blonde mane tumbling down over her shoulder.

Also in the spotlight at the bash – and going for a slightly more glammed up look with an on trend sequinned dress – was Danniella Westbrook.

After making her return to Albert Square as Sam Mitchell the blonde star is getting acquainted with the TV social scene again.

And there to support her was her old pal Steve McFadden, who plays her brother Phil in the BBC soap.

The EastEnders crew scored three gongs at the awards – the coveted best soap award as well as best storyline and best newcomer for Lauren Clace, who plays Danielle Jones on the show.

And it was a special night for cheeky Geordie duo Ant and Dec – who were given a outstanding contribution trophy in recognition of two decades of working in TV.

"We can't believe we've been doing this for 20 years - it really is the best job in the world," said Declan Donnelly, who has been dating Sky Sports presenter Georgie Thompson since the start of the year.
