Dec's wife shows off baby bump as she sparkles on Bafta red carpet

The presenter and his wife Ali are expecting their first child together.

Declan Donnelly’s wife Ali Astall showed off her baby bump as the couple stepped out on the red carpet for the Bafta TV awards.

Astall, who is expecting the couple’s first child, sparkled in a floor-length glittery silver dress as she posed for pictures beside Donnelly at the Royal Festival Hall.

She wore her blonde hair pulled back for a fresh, summery feel, while Donnelly was all smiles beside her in his suit.

Donnelly was not joined by his presenting partner Ant McPartlin, who has stepped back from his TV commitments following his car crash.

McPartlin was banned from the road for 20 months and fined £86,000 after pleading guilty to driving while more than twice the legal limit.

But the duo’s Britain’s Got Talent colleague Amanda Holden was in attendance, looking ravishing in bright pink with her blonde hair swept back.

Holden walked the carpet with her 12-year-old daughter Alexa, who wore a very pale pink dress and looked thrilled to be at the glitzy affair.

Holden was not the only star embracing bright colours, with Lucy Mecklenburgh also opting for pink and Laura Whitmore and Michelle Keegan dazzling in vibrant yellow.

Claudia Winkleman turned heads with her bold choice – a red leopard print dress with a layered skirt.
