However, some viewers took issue with the exposed sections of her outfit, with some feeling it was inappropriate for the charity match.

Taking to her Instagram Stories, she shared a photo of herself in the dress, and another of her in a black mini-dress from a previous TV outing.

Soccer Aid was set up by Robbie Williams back in 2006 and is the world's biggest celebrity football match which raises money to support UNICEF's incredible work. This year Robbie delighted fans with his 1997 hit ballad Angels which he performed during half-time.

Speaking ahead of the fundraiser he said: "I already know that it is going to be one of the most special nights of my career – and I want as many of you as possible to be part of it."
