Jessie Wallace Swaps Black For Gold At TV Awards

Eastenders actress Jessie Wallace has been at the centre of one of soap’s most scandalous storylines so it was her chance to shine at the National TV Awards.

After a tough couple of months in which she’s been wearing an endless stream of black outfits to play a mother traumatised by cot death, Jessie stepped out of her dull, depressing on-screen grieving mother outfits to show off a stunning gold dress.

How fitting that Eastenders won Best Serial Drama – Jessie matched the award that she went on stage to collect with her co-stars including Shane Richie and Zoe Lucker.

Jessie told Very exclusively that more drama is yet to come for Kat, who is going to cheat on her on-screen husband Alfie Moon.

We don’t want to give away which naughty man breaks Alfie’s heart, but the episode is due to air in March. Make a TV date in your diary now!

It was a big night for Eastenders with Ricky Norwood – aka Fatboy – picking up best newcomer and Lacey Turner – the show’s Stacey Slater – picking up most outstanding performance in a soap for the fourth consecutive year.

Lacey has now left Albert Square so perhaps next year will be the year that someone like Jessie is singled out for a solo awars. She’s certainly turned on the tears over the last few months.

It’s refreshing to see her glammed up and we can all do the same with a choice of stunning metallic dresses currently available at Very. Check out the very similar South metallic jersey maxi dress

Jessie’s in great shape at the moment so she could have got away with something shorter. If you’re feeling more daring try the stunning Rare metallic one shoulder dress

Or go for some pretty embellishment like Jessie in the Teatro embellished tunic dress

Finish with some pretty as well as practical shoes that will enable you to last all night like the Holly Willoughby elegance peep toe wedges

There’s no stopping Jessie Wallace right now. Getting glammed up suits everyone!
