A host of familiar faces enjoyed an early festive spread on Tuesday as the Television and Radio Industries Club (TRIC) hosted a celebratory Christmas lunch in London. 

The annual event gives supporters of the fundraising organisation an opportunity to wine and dine with popular figures from the world of TV, Radio and online, with entertainment provided by West End performers and the Salvation Army band. 

With this year’s party held at 8 Northumberland Avenue, guests including TV presenters Kirsty Gallacher, Alex Jones and Lizzie Cundy were among the first to arrive – and wasted no time in seizing a photo opportunity. 

Kirsty, 45, cut a chic figure in a black halterneck jumpsuit which she teamed up with a coordinating pair of heels featuring silver embellishments. 

The Edinburgh-native tied her glossy brunette tresses into a sleek ponytail as she greeted onlookers before making her way inside.  

Joining Kirsty, fellow presenter Alex, 44, opted for a loose-fitting lilac dress with a floor-length hem and pinched shoulders as she made her way into the central London venue’s cavernous Victorian ballroom.

Elsewhere Lizzie, 53, sent temperatures soaring as she flashed her bronzed legs in a dazzling silver minidress, which she teamed up with a matching pair of heels.

She showcased her assets in the plunging number and accessorised her ensemble with a pair of glittering drop beaded earrings.
