The brunette actress styled her fringe in a middle parting and wore it in a stylish up-do. To complete her look, Emma opted for a natural makeup look, and wore a stylish metallic dress, which received a lot of compliments from viewers at home. During her appearance, Emma was asked by host Rylan Clark-Neal about how she took Craig Revel-Horwood's comments on Saturday night, where he likened her posture to a sack of potatoes. Emma took it all in her stride and laughed off the remarks.
