Tess looked gorgeous on Saturday 

We're not sure what you're talking about, Tess, we think you look fab!

Needless to say, the stylish host looked a million dollars when she presented the first episode of this year's season of Strictly, taking to the stage alongside her co-host Claudia Winkleman in the most gorgeous white and black spotted dress from 16Arlington - officially making dalmatian print one of our favourites of the season! 

The blonde beauty completed her glamorous ensemble with metallic heels and wore her hair in a straight and loose style, opting for chic makeup which was underpinned by a slightly smoky eye. 

We can't wait to see what Tess wears this week!
