Charlotte Hawkins dons a stunning sparkling ballgown and knocks back champagne for Pride Of Britain

Charlotte Hawkins looked sensational on Sunday night as she dolled herself up for the Pride Of Britain Awards 2020.

But the Good Morning Britain host, 45, wouldn’t be leaving the house for the ceremony, as this year’s is virtual due to COVID-19‘s grip on the planet.

Posting a video to Instagram, Charlotte shone in a sparkling ballgown in champagne hues as she perched on her sofa – a box of tissues in one hand and a flute of bubbly in the other.

The show must go on: Charlotte Hawkins looked sensational on Sunday night as she dolled herself up for the Pride Of Britain Awards 2020

She captioned this: ‘It may look a little different this year… but I’m getting dressed up for the @prideofbritain awards as they’ll be as special as ever!

‘Tonight on @itv at 9pm ✨’

Speaking to the camera in the video, she said: ‘I’ve got the tissues on standby as I know it’s going to be an emotional one.

‘I’ve got the glass of fizz to toast our amazing winners this evening. I’m getting ready to celebrate our heroes!’

Cheers! The Good Morning Britain host, 45, wouldn't be leaving the house for the ceremony, as this year's is virtual due to COVID-19's grip on the planet

She also snapped a shot on Sunday afternoon on a bench in the garden, brandishing a union jack flag.

‘A good excuse to get dressed up at home, helping to celebrate the amazing @prideofbritain award winners!’ she wrote. 

The 2020 Pride Of Britain Awards mark the 22nd time Carol Vorderman is fronting the ceremony.

She will be joined this year by co-host Ashley Banjo – with the pandemic rendering proceedings a little different for 2020.

Carol and Ashley will be joined by guest stars Holly Willoughby, Susanna Reid and Paloma Faith, who all filmed their contributions at the famous Royal Hospital Chelsea, which was lit up for the occasion with a stunning Pride Of Britain Awards set. 

As the awards air on ITV, landmarks across London, including the London Eye, BT Tower and County Hall, will turn red, white and blue in celebration of this year’s winners. 

Marcus Rashford and Captain Sir Tom Moore will be among those honoured in the ceremony which awards the remarkable achievements of Brits who have selflessly contributed the the nation and the world.

Captain Sir Tom Moore is being recognised for his efforts in raising £32 million for the NHS during lockdown.

Footballer Marcus Rashford will also receive a prize for his campaigns to extend the free school meals scheme over the summer. 

Winners will have their awards delivered to them instead of attending a ceremony in person this year.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have already filmed a segment to thank St Bartholomew’s in London for their work during the pandemic with Good Morning Britain’s Kate Garraway. They are set to make another appearance on the evening, too.

Nominated by the public, the winners are from all walks of life, of all ages, and from all over the country. 

Since the first ceremony in 1999, royalty, prime ministers, and hundreds of leading figures from showbusiness, sport, politics and the arts have all taken part. 

The awards attract an audience of around five million viewers every year in a primetime slot on ITV – making it the highest rated awards show of its kind on British television.

The winners come from tens of thousands of public nominations and stories of remarkable individuals discovered by our team of researchers. They are whittled down to a shortlist from which our judging panel, made up of celebrated figures in national life, chooses the winners.
