On Tuesday, Kelly Hoppen was made a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) for services to the Government’s Great campaign, helping to promote British creativity, business and commerce. 

And in the evening, Ashley Roberts commanded attention in a form-fitting silver pencil dress and a fuchsia crushed velvet coat at the designer’s investiture party at Langan’s Brasserie in London. 

The Pussycat Dolls star, 40, perfectly coordinated her pink handbag and pointed stilettos heels with her eye-catching longline coat.

Ashley’s textured bodycon frock boasted long sleeves and contrasting buttons up the centre, right up to its closed collar. 

But it was her bright pink coat, heels and miniature handbag which stood out as she strolled to the bash.

Ashley added another bold colour pop as she opted for long Gen-Z green nail extensions, and swept her blonde tresses up into a bun atop her head.    

The former Strictly Come Dancing contestant recently hit the headlines when she revealed that she is still looking for love.

The star split from Strictly Come Dancing professional Giovanni Pernice back in 2020.  

At the time the couple, who met on Strictly when Ashley was a contestant, kept their romance a secret and only revealed they were an item when the show ended.

The couple dated for over a year and Giovanni went on to date former Love Islander Maura Higgins, 30 – who he split from last month.

When the shock split was revealed The Sun reported that the reality star Maura had joined the exclusive celebrity dating app Raya.

Now that lockdown restrictions have been lifted, Ashley has admitted that she was eager to get out and about.

Speaking to The Sun, she said: ‘My friend one day was like, “Have you checked your DMs?” I don’t really do that normally, but it was interesting. 

‘There’s been a wide spectrum of characters popping in there and normally I wouldn’t even be open to something like that, but because we’re not able to go out and socialise, I was trying to be open to new ways but… 

‘Let’s just say I’m excited to meet people in real life! I enjoy that chemistry and that connection. You can’t beat that. I’m excited to get dressed up, feel cute, get out there.’
