Love Island’s Maura Higgins leads the best-dressed celebs on the ITV Palooza red carpet

TV stars were out in force for ITV Palooza, the annual event which celebrates the channel’s showbiz successes.

Alongside presenters Holly Willoughby and Susanna Reid there was reality TV royalty in the form of Gemma Collins and fellow TOWIE alumni Jess Wright with brother Mark.

Plus, there was a major Love Island reunion, with contestants from the last two series of the dating show bringing plenty of glitz and glam to proceedings.

Here’s who wowed on the red carpet…

We don’t know if she was inspired by Zoolander’s famous ‘blue steel’ pose but Love Island 2018 favourite Georgia Steel royal blue frock was a real show-stopper, the mini wrap dress featuring an extra-long train.

Black was a big trend on the ITV Palooza red carpet and Jess Wright was one of many celebs who choose a monochrome ensemble. The former TOWIE star teamed her simple black crop top and skirt with a cool art deco-style clutch.

While all the Love Islanders opted for skimpy or bodycon dresses, series host Caroline Flack stuck to her signature style, looking chic in a sequinned shorts suit worn with a black roll neck and an on-trend beaded bag.
