Best friends Holly Willoughby and Fearne Cotton headed out hand-in-hand to attend the annual ITV summer party on Thursday evening. The two TV stars were in high spirits as they made their way to the event, which was held in London's Notting Hill, laughing and smiling as they walked along together.

Mum-of-three Holly, 34, opted for a sophisticated navy blue dress that showed off her enviable curves. She wore her blonde hair around her shoulders and accessorised with a simple pair of stilettos and a matching handbag.

Fearne, meanwhile, showcased her more eclectic style in a summery tie-dye smock dress, which she teamed with sparkling blue heels and a purple satchel. The TV and radio presenter wore her hair in low bunches to complete her playful look.

Just visible beneath her dress was her blossoming baby bump; in February, Fearne announced that she and husband Jesse Wood were expecting their second child together, while at the same time confirming that she would be leaving Radio 1 after 10 years on the airways.

"Jesse and I are very happy to announce we are having another baby," the 33-year-old said. "I feel extremely blessed and happy that Rex will be a big brother, and we get to welcome another Wood into the world."

Holly is currently on maternity leave following the birth of her son Chester in September – she and husband Dan Baldwin are also parents to six-year-old Harry and four-year-old Belle. This week it was confirmed that Holly will be returning to work in September. Phillip Schofield – her co-host on This Morning – announced the news on Twitter.

"Not on @itvthismorning today," he wrote on Monday. "Spending the day with @hollywills shooting new opening titles, promos and doing i/v's for her Sept return :)."
