We loved seeing Strictly's Janette Manrara light up the red carpet on Sunday evening as she attended the TV BAFTAs with Sara Davies, who chose Janette to be her plus one.

Janette looked mesmerising in a striking ruffled dress from Trang Hung, complete with an asymmetrical neckline, daring cut-out bodice and thigh-split skirt that cascaded into an impressive train of tulle. The Strictly: It Takes Two presenter rocked a pair of 'barely there' heels, leaving all the attention on her electric pink ensemble.

The 38-year-old dancer wore her brunette hair in an elegant up-do, adding a pop of colour with metallic green eyeshadow and fluttery lashes to highlight her ageless beauty glow.

Janette added a pair of statement pearl drop earrings from Laurence Coste to complete her look - and fans couldn't get enough of her flamingo pink look.

Clearly having the time of her life, Janette took to the dancefloor at the BAFTAs afterparty with a glass of Champagne as her co-star Sara filmed.

Fellow Strictly professionals and contestants rushed to the comments to share their love for Janette's striking attire, including Maisie Smith who wrote: "THIS DRESS". Clara Amfo was left speechless, simply commenting a string of pink hearts beneath Janette's post.
