As for her hair and makeup, Helen upped the ante and wore her vibrant blonde tresses down in voluminous curls in a dramatic side parting adding an extra oomph to her already glamorous ensemble.

This year's awards made headlines before they went ahead as Phillip Schofield, who was due to present the awards stepped down from ITV after confessing he was having an affair with a younger colleague. 

Jane McDonald replaced the former ITV host and looked sensational in a dazzling gold dress. The dazzling gown was completely spellbinding and featured an asymmetrical neckline, swathes of folded fabric, and a floor-grazing hemline.

The singing sensation teamed the look with a pair of strappy gold heels, dramatic gold drop earrings, and sleek gold bangles. She wore her brunette tresses in a bouffant hairdo and completed her red-carpet look with a touch of shimmery eyeshadow, fluttery lashes and a glossy pink lip - a winning combination.

Jane was honoured to be chosen to host the awards, and at the time penned a statement that read: "Oh my god…everyone knows how much I LOVE my soaps, this year I've been honoured to be mentioned in Corrie, EastEnders and Emmerdale, so this is just a dream come true. I can't wait to see all our wonderful soap nominees and celebrate all their hard work with them - roll on the awards, I can't wait!"

She added: "I'm so excited to be this year's host for The British Soap Awards!! I LOVE my soaps, so this is just a dream come true. I can’t wait to see all our wonderful soap nominees and celebrate all their hard work with them - roll on the awards! Tuesday, 8pm, @ITV & @ITVX."
