Jungle companions Carol Vorderman and Ola Jordan go for glamour at Military Awards

They spent weeks in the I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here! jungle together, but it was a far more glamorous affair for Carol Vorderman and Ola Jordan on Wednesday evening.

The two TV stars looked stunning as they walked the red carpet at the Sun Military Awards at London’s Guildhall, which was attended by a plethora of stars from the entertainment industry and even Prime Minister Theresa May.

Carol, 55, swapped her dusty jungle attire for an eye-popping, curve-hugging red glittering dress and ex-Strictly pro Ola, 34, wowed in a semi-sheer black gown.

The dancer was kept company at the prestigious event by her doting husband and fellow former Strictly star James.

Carol made it to day 18 in the ITV reality programme, while Ola left two days earlier after they were both voted out by the public.

The annual Sun Military Awards ceremony – otherwise known as the Millies – celebrates the bravest and best figures from the Royal Navy, Army and the Royal Air Force.

Other familiar faces walking the red carpet included X Factor champion Matt Terry, as well as runner-up Saara Alto, and recently eliminated Strictly Come Dancing star Judge Robert Rinder.

Footballer Jamie Vardy and his pregnant wife Rebekah were out to show their support for the men and women of the armed forces, as was The Grand Tour’s Jeremy Clarkson, Good Morning Britain’s Susanna Reid and TV favourite Lorraine Kelly.
