Caroline Flack, Sam Faiers and Kym Marsh were among the stars fending off the chill as they walked the red carpet at the ITV Gala.

The annual event welcomes ITV stars to a night of entertainment as the broadcaster celebrates the success of the past year while looking forward to its 2018 programming line-up.

Love Island presenter Flack appeared to ignore the cold November evening in a black mini-dress with an asymmetric neckline.
