Gary Lineker, Gabby Logan, Clare Balding and Alex Scott took to the Sports Personality of the Year stage on Sunday night to crown this year’s winner. Following a remarkable year of sporting success, millions tuned in to BBC to see which of six winners would be chosen. However, just moments into the show, it was presenter Alex Scott who stole the show as she donned a sparkly dress which definitely didn’t go unnoticed.

Alex wore a white striped dress and separate, glitzy sleeves to take to the stage at Media City Salford.
The dress stood out among her co-hosts, as Gary chose a classic black suit, while Gabby wore a black dress.
Clare, on contrast, chose a brightly-coloured orange, patterned jacket, and black trousers.
But it was Alex’s outfit which got viewers talking the most, with a number taking to Twitter to share their thoughts.
