Alex Jones and new fiancé Charlie Thomson make sensational red carpet appearance

Alex Jones was the centre of attention on Sunday night as she stepped out for the annual BAFTA Television Awards in London. The popular presenter was enjoying a night off duty with her new fiancé Charlie Thomson – and given that the couple were making a rare red carpet appearance, Alex and Charlie knew just how to turn heads.

The bride-to-be wasn't afraid to show some skin, wearing a ravishing, off-the-shoulder Cristallini dress that featured a plunging neckline.

Her bright red number, which retails at £482, also showed off her toned legs with its thigh-high split and flowing skirt.

Alex, 38, finished off her look with a messy side plait, smokey eye make-up and a dazzling pair of diamond earrings. But it was her sparkly new engagement ring – made up of a central diamond flanked by two emerald-cut stones – that caught fellow guests' attention.

Alex first debuted the item, which is valued at around £30,000, during an appearance on The One Show, the BBC programme she has co-presented for the past five years.

The Welsh beauty was joined by New Zealand-born insurance broker Charlie, who she has been in a relationship with for three years.

A month after their engagement was announced in February, Alex admitted that she and Charlie hadn't made much progress on the wedding planning.

"We haven't set a date, I don't know if it's a thing? Is that what you do when you get engaged?" Alex told chat show host Lorraine Kelly.

"We're very relaxed, I mean disorganised really," she added. "So mum is pushing. She said, 'You know we could do this by the end of the year if you and Charlie get a move on.' But we haven't looked at anywhere, it would be nice to do it within the next few months."

Alex added that her big day will be an intimate, family affair. She said: "It'll be just with our close friends and family and a day when everybody can have a bit of a laugh. Words like 'favours' and 'bridesmaids' and 'colour schemes' are starting to get on my nerves already. I think everybody turn up, there'll be some wine and it'll be a nice day."
