Stacey Solomon told fans she was 'feeling beautiful' as she was seen posing up a storm ahead of her appearance at the BAFTA Television Awards 2024. The Loose Women star headed to the star-studded bash on Sunday night (May 12) where she was presenting an award.

The stars of the small screen headed to London's Royal Festival Hall to celebrate the best in TV over the past year in a glamourous ceremony. As the prestigious event began, actors and reality stars made their way down the carpet ahead of the award ceremony, posing for the camera under the Southbank's glistening sun.

Rob Beckett and Romesh Ranganathan were once again the hosts of the evening and kicked off the annual awards bash by issuing stern instructions to the celebrity audience before the handing out of the prestigious gongs got underway.

And ahead of her appearing at the ceremony, which aired on BBC One on Sunday evening, Stacey shared a string of gorgeous images to Instagram in which she could be seen posing in her stunning gown in the garden of her beloved home, Pickle Cottage.

The 34-year-old looked sensational in a strapless black gown that boasted a daring thigh-high split and had been covered in sparkles. She kept accessories to a minimum, opting for a gold necklace and matching bracelet while she kept her blond locks down in soft curls.

"Feeling Beautiful," Stacey started the caption of her Instagram post to her 5.9 million followers. "And nervous & excited & honoured [crying laughing emoji]. Off to the BAFTAs to present an award. So grateful to have been asked to do this! But also my mouth is as dry as the Sahara & my tummy is tingling [crying laughing emoji].

"But it’s the F**k it year, so stepping out of the zone I’ve got myself comfortable in is what 2024 is all about! Happy Sunday everyone! Wish me luck. If I mess it up let’s all pretend I didn’t yeah? [crying laughing emoji]. Your messages have been SO lovely! Best bunch of mates ever! To the moon and back."

It comes after Stacey said the thought of presenting an awards was 'filling her with dread'. On Saturday, the Sort Your Life Out host revealed what she'd be up to over the weekend, she admitted her nerves. In a video posted to her Instagram Story Stacey said: "I might not be on here very much on Sunday either because I've got to present an award at the BAFTAs which fills me with absolute dread - I even tried to get out of it!

"My agent was like, 'Absolutely not, it's an honour and a privilege! Don't be ridiculous!' And I was like, 'I know it's an honour and a privilege and I'm really grateful but reading autocue live on telly makes me c**p my pants'. I don't mind doing Loose Women Live where I can be myself and say whatever I want to say but autocue does throw me off.

"Anyway, I had a word with myself and said no, this is great opportunity, go for it! You'll be so proud when you've done it. So I'm going to do that Sunday. Wish me luck!!
