Jessie Wallace stood out from the crowd at The British Soap Awards 2023 on Saturday night in a black dress.
The Eastenders actress, 51, opted for a simple cut lace gown, which gathered in ruffles and fell away from her shoulders with a plunging neckline.
Jessie added a leather corset belt with white button detailing, which synched in at the waist, as she stepped out at The Lowry in Manchester.
She added height to her frame with black open toe heels, which gave a glimpse of a perfectly polished red pedicure.
The soap star, who is known for playing Cat Slater in the long-standing show, accessorised with layered silver bracelets and rings.

This year’s British Soap Awards was hosted by Jane McDonald, who was drafted in as a last minute replacement for long-time host Phillip Schofield.
Operatic singer and cruise ship favourite Jane, 60, was revealed as Phillip’s replacement on Thursday after he quit ITV and was dropped by his talent agency YMU after admitting to an affair with a young male This Morning colleague.
He confessed to having the ‘unwise but not illegal’ relationship with a man during his marriage to Stephanie Lowe, and previously denied the affair when asked about it by his agent.
The presenter, 61, confirmed in a statement last week that he has stepped down from all his ITV jobs, including the ceremony.
And amid news Jane was taking the helm, fans hailed the star as the ‘perfect choice’ to front the ceremony, which took place at The Lowry in Salford, Greater Manchester.
