Tess Daly dazzles with Georgia Toffolo at BAFTA TV Awards
BAFTA TV AWARDS 2023: Tess Daly dazzles in a backless metallic gown as she leads the red carpet arrivals alongside elegant Georgia Toffolo and Catherine Tyldesley at the annual British Academy Television Awards
London’s Royal Festival Hall provided the glamorous backdrop as the great and the good of British TV and film converged for the annual British Academy Television Awards on Sunday evening.
Making an early entrance at the Southbank venue, Tess Daly, Georgia Toffolo and Coronation Street star Catherine Tyldesley looked appropriately glamorous as they posed for photos on the red carpet.
The trio were among the first arrivals on a busy night at the annual ceremony, and Catherine ensured she stood out in a sweeping ice blue gown with an intricate floral detail.
The actress, 39, added to her dramatic look with delicate diamond earrings, while her hair was side-parted tightly pulled into a neat, conventional bun.
Joining Catherine, presenter Vick, 33 – who announced her engagement to DJ Calvin Harris last May – caught the eye in an equally stylish emerald green gown with a distinctive cut out chest panel that drew attention to her cleavage.
Perhaps more noticeable than the dress, her glimmering engagement ring stood out beneath the red carpet lights as she greeted photographers outside the London venue.

Meanwhile Clara, 38, turned heads in a multi-tiered red gown with a sweeping train and thigh-skimming hemline, a look she teamed with strappy black heels.
Stepping out on to the red carpet Georgia Toffolo, 28, looked sensational in a red satin gown with a semi-sheer white lace bodice and puff sleeves.
Featuring a plunging neckline the vintage-inspired number gathered under the bust with a red rose embellishment and fanned to the ground with a straight full length skirt.
BBC dramas This is Going to Hurt and The Responder lead the nominations for this year’s ceremony, which will be hosted by comedians Rob Beckett and Romesh Ranganathan.
The awards will be held at the Queen Elizabeth Hall at London’s Southbank. It marks a change in venue after last year’s event was held at the city’s Royal Festival Hall.
Clara Amfo and Michelle Visage will present from the BAFTA Television Awards red carpet.
This Is Going To Hurt star Ben Wishaw and The Responder’s Martin Freeman are both nominated for leading actor, while the latter is in the running for the drama series prize, as well as the original music category.
Meanwhile, first time nominees Josh Finan and Adelayo Adedayo are on the shortlist for the respective supporting actor and actress awards.

This Is Going To Hurt also has nominations for mini series, director and editing in fiction, scripted casting and writer in drama.
The BBC show is based on the best-selling non-fiction memoir of the same name, the series follows junior doctor Adam Kay in his chaotic job in Obstetrics and Gynaecology.
Meanwhile, The Crown received five nominations for its most recent series which aired last Autumn, including Leading Actress and Supporting Actor.
Apple TV+ hits Bad Sisters and Slow Horses, as well as Emily Blunt’s The English also received five nods each.
Slow Horses star Gary Oldman has also received his first BAFTA TV nomination.
In the international category, The Bear, Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, Wednesday, Oussekine, Pachinko and The White Lotus are all nominated.
The Leading Actress race will see Kate Winslet go up against Imelda Staunton, Sarah Lancashire, Billie Piper and Maxine Peake.
But Peaky Blinders and House Of The Dragon were among the shows to miss out as the nominations for the 2023 British Academy TV Awards.
While many critically-acclaimed series were recognised with multiple nods, some of 2022’s most praised shows and performances did not feature.
Likewise, the Game Of Thrones prequel House Of The Dragon was not nominated in the International Series category, despite its vast budget and fan following.
Prime Video’s epic series Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power, was also snubbed from the same category.
While The Crown received a total of five nominations across the main TV and Craft categories, one star was noticeably snubbed.
Elizabeth Debicki, who was praised by critics for her performance as Princess Diana, missed out on a nod in either the Leading Actress or Supporting Actress category.
The show was also snubbed from the Drama Series category, though star Imelda Staunton did earn a Leading Actress nod.
Another show completely shut out of the nominations was Gentleman Jack, which returned for its long-anticipated second series last year.
The BBC received the most nominations out of all the broadcasters with 47 nods in total, while Channel 4 received 21 and ITV scored 15.
Last year’s ceremony was helmed by Richard Ayoade which saw an average of 2.4million viewers tune in as the full ceremony returned after the pandemic.
As well as announcing this year’s nominations BAFTA also announced P&O Cruises as their their new headline sponsor.
As part of the multi-year partnership, P&O Cruises will launch a ‘P&O Cruises Memorable Moment Award’, which will be the only award to be voted for by members of the viewing public.
The award will honour the impact of television in the UK and its power to entertain, inform and bring the nation together.
