Elegant: Former Coronation Street star Katherine Kelly shows off her slender figure in a sexy strapless gown.. which turned out to be chiffon draped over a black and white frock
She bid farewell to the cobbles of Coronation Street earlier this year to tread the boards at the National Theatre.
But tonight gave Katherine Kelly a chance to catch up and have a night out with all her old soap comrades - even if she was in danger of taking the red carpet glory.
Miss Kelly, 32, looked sensational as she arrived at the BAFTA TV Awards in a very elegant and chic strapless black dress.
As she stopped and posed for the cameras outside the Royal Festival Hall in London, she showed off her slender frame in the stunning frock by couture designer Marina Qureshi. But as she spun round, she showed off the back which revealed that it was a lace dress with a black chiffon overlay.

Corrie girls: Natalie Gumede, who plays Becky Soames and Paula Lane who plays Kylie Turner were also at the ceremony
And although she hasn't been in Corrie since January, she was there to cheer on her friends and former castmates who were going head-to-head in the Soap and Continuing Drama category with EastEnders, Holby City and Shameless.
Katherine, who played Becky McDonald for six years, was joined by current star Michelle Keegan, who was without beau Max George from boyband The Wanted but proved she can dazzle just as well on her own.
Eeek! Is that me? EastEnders star Jacqueline Jossa looked a far cry from her character Lauren as she arrived at the awards in a very elegant beige and chiffon creation

The 24-year-old posed for the cameras on the Union Flag red carper in a floor-length metallic silver Grecian-style dress, her hair pinned up and back.
Her co-star Paula Lane, who plays Katherine's half-sister Kylie Turner, was also attending and flashed a sexy pose over her shoulder as she arrived in a backless black dress, and Natalie Gumede, who plays Kirsty Soames, also looked elegant in a lack lace dress with a huge split up the front.
