Bake Off star Candice Brown and Love Islanders Belle Hassan and Lucie Donlan were among the stars who were joined by their pets on the red carpet at the Animal Hero Awards.

The ceremony, held at the Grosvenor House hotel in London and hosted by husband and wife duo Steve Backshall and Helen Glover, celebrates bravery, dedication and resilience in the animal world.

Brown was among those who braved the rain for the event.

The TV star, who carried her dog up the carpet, was elegant in a blue ruffled dress with her hair pulled back.
