Oti Mabuse steals show at BAFTA TV awards in silky white strapless evening gown

Oti Mabuse channelled classic red carpet glamour for her appearance at this year's Virgin Media British Academy Television Awards, working a timeless cream gown.

The professional dancer, 30, is one of the hosts of this year's BAFTA TV awards, joining the likes of Line Of Duty's Adrian Dunbar and Maya Jama on the stage.

Ahead of the hotly-anticipated prize giving, which sees the biggest names in British television compete for a series of glittering awards, Oti hit the red carpet.

Stepping out at London's TV Centre, the Strictly Come Dancing star looked radiant in a white sleeveless gown, cut with a sweetheart bodice and an elegant wraparound waist.

Tailing off into a satin train, the dress featured a slit up one side, letting Oti show off her silver stiletto heels with ankle clasps.

By way of accessories, the Masked Dancer judge added some silver drop earrings, and her hair – which has been styled into a wavy bob – was tucked behind one ear.

Oti will reunite with her most recent Strictly dance partner, comedian Bill Bailey, on the stage, introducing the awards ceremony.

Dressing for the occasion, Bill wore a sequinned face mask and some reflective sunglasses, a dapper pair of loafers accessorising his tuxedo.

Fellow Strictly star Claudia Winkleman was also in attendance, catching the light in a sophisticated silver fringed dress with simple black accessories.

Oti has been in the headlines recently thanks to her role as a judge on the debut season of The Masked Dancer, which was a spin-off of TV's greatest guessing game, The Masked Singer.

This weekend saw the series champion crowned, with Olympic gymnast Louis Smith stealing a victory dressed as Carwash.

West End darling Bonnie Langford as Squirrel came in second place, while Take That star Howard Donald landed in a respectable third place.

Oti joined judges Mo Gilligan, Davina McCall and Jonathan Ross on the panel, and her superior knowledge of the world of dance paid off when it came to guessing the celebs' identities.

Bidding farewell to the series on Saturday, Oti told fans: "Goodnight team – it's been amazing.

"It's been incredible and I've loved sharing the screen with an incredible panel but most importantly playing along with you guys…"
