The TV star looked incredible in a royal blue full skirt and matching long-sleeved glittery top as she helmed the virtual ceremony for ITV.

Carol often causes a stir with her social media photos. Over the summer, she staged an impromptu photoshoot for Twitter, wearing a pair of tight red leather trousers and a plunging white blouse.
