”Glam Melanie Sykes, 45, shows off her curvaceous body in figure-hugging dress at beauty book launch”
She showed off her body while in the jungle for I’m A Celebrity.
But Melanie Sykes gave onlookers another eyeful as she partied in central London on Wednesday, where she sported a figure-hugging dress.
The 45 year-old had amped-up the glamour for the launch of Simply Glamorous – a beauty book by her showbiz pal, Gary Cockerill.
Glam: Melanie Sykes gave onlookers an eyeful as she partied in central London on Wednesday, where she sported a figure-hugging dress for Gary Cockerill’s book launch
Putting on a leggy display in the green and cream number, which was embellished with jewels, she looked stunning.
Wearing her hair down in a centre-parting, it was loosely curled for a casually sexed-up style.
She matched the gown with nude platform shoes and, of course, full-effect make-up for a smouldering look.
Tan-tastic: Putting on a leggy display in the green number, embellished with jewels, she looked great
Melanie Sykes has always looked great, but since leaving the jungle after I’m a Celebrity, she has really seemed to focus on her fitness and now is a lean mean machine!
As she stepped out here at an event in London, the pretty presenter gave it her all in this bright yellow dress by Herve Leger that radiated even more next to her bronzed skin.
The dress featured a cute fishtail hem, a colour block design and stud details and it really gave a luxurious finish and it should do too with a price tag that hefty. Luckily for us, it’s in the sale, but unluckily, it’s still a whopping £4636!
Speaking about his tricks of the trade, Gary explained: ‘My years of experience have taught me that make-up can be really powerful.
‘Looking good means feeling good, and the right make-up can give women so much confidence. It’s such a pleasure to see the difference make-up can make and how it can empower them.’
That’s what friends are for! Melanie, who has also used Gary as her make-up artist in the past, posed up a storm next to over-sized images of herself which appear in the book

The mother-of-two, who shares her sons Roman, 11, and Valentino, 9, with ex-husband Daniel Caltagirone, also attended the event to promote her latest project Humble Pie.
The show, which will air later this month, sees Mel and world-famous chef Marco Pierre White host a cooking contest with a twist.
Part master-chef, part poker face, the show sees four contestants cooking up three courses, with Marco deciding the ultimate winner.
However, the twist in the show sees the contestants predicting Marco’s verdict of each other’s dishes before they get near the chef; and allows the timid-of-heart to exit the competition with a cash fee.
