After already denying any one-on-one activity with the footballer on Twitter, Katherine Jenkins took last night's event to speak out on the incident again
She told Daybreak: "You know what, I am ok now.

"But it was something that I really felt like I had to stand up for myself and I had to put it right. It was very hurtful."

We bet! But while she was quick to distance herself from the allegations about an affair with the married footballer, she was definitely keen to up her status as a fashionista!

Katherine stole the red carpet show in a cut out floor-length gown and added a vampy edge with heavy eye make-up.

The dress features a large cut out panel that showed off the star's slim shape and enviable figure.

Before the event, Katherine tweeted a photo of her looking stunning, posting: "Amazing shoot for the new album today... Now it's a quick dress change and off to the GQ Awards! (Dress by Stella)"
