Gillian McKeith made sure all eyes were on her when she made a rare public appearance with her teenage daughter on Thursday evening. The TV presenter, 58, was in high spirits as she attended the London premiere of Rise of the Footsolider 3 with Afton, 17, with the mother-daughter duo stepping out in coordinating outfits for the event. Fully embracing the Halloween spirit, Gillian wore an embroidered cobweb cape by Alisa Vaseghi, which featured feminine floral detailing. The You Are What You Eat presenter teamed the statement ensemble with a black leotard and leg-lengthening heels. Afton also opted for a lace-adorned outfit, pairing a sheer crop top with patchwork wide-legged trousers. Both Gillian and Afton also experimented with their hairstyles; Gillian rocked bun pigtails, while Afton opted for a twisted plait.

Gillian, who is also mum to 23-year-old daughter Skylar, first came to the public's attention back in 2004 as the host of You Are What You Eat, which saw her sharing nutritional advice and helping participants lose weight. In 2010, the nutritionist took part in ITV's hit reality TV show I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, where she was joined by fellow contestants including Loose Women presenter Stacey Solomon, This Morning presenter Alison Hammond, comedian Dom Joly, TV personality Sheryl Gascoyne, politician Lembit Opik and Happy Mondays singer Shaun Ryder. She infamously collapsed live on air at the prospect of having to do a seventh consecutive bushtucker trial, which was watched by ten million viewers.

Other stars in attendance at the London premiere included former EastEnders actor Craig Fairbrass, who plays Pat Tate in the action-packed thriller. Craig, who is best known for his role as notorious gangster Dan Sullivan in EastEnders between 1999-2001, stars in the film with another former villain for the BBC soap - Larry Lamb - who played Archie Mitchell from 2008-2009. Larry appears as Mr. Harris in the new movie.
