Rochelle Humes and Laura Whitmore lead festive stars at Winter Wonderland launch

By Louise Lavigueur

TV presenters and reality stars and pop singers wrapped up warm to enjoy a fun-filled first look as Winter Wonderland returned to the capital.

Last night's preview kicked off the festivities at London's Hyde Park as stars soaked up the atmosphere at the pop up event featuring a huge ice rink, ice bar and circus themed attractions.

The heat from Love Island may seem like a distant memory after a sizzling summer but show host Laura Whitmore looked to be embracing the winter weather wrapped up in a cosy brown jacket with a feathered faux fur trim and peaked cap.

Adding the fun to the celeb red carpet saw Pussy Cat Dolls singer Ashley Roberts, 40, also opted for comfort with a pair of black patent trousers and a cosy Prada jacket as she arrived at the event.

But TV presenter and former singer, Rochelle Humes, 32, braved the chill to expose her bare mid-rift wearing a cropped top beneath a long brown coat and styled with chunky boots.

Girls Aloud singers Nadine Coyle appeared wrapped up warm in a cream coat and fellow bandmate Nicola Roberts donned an on-trend black trench coat and white boots for the evening.

The pop stars stepped out after paying tribute to late bandmate Sarah Harding yesterday on what would have been her 40th birthday.
