Danielle Armstrong was the belle of the ball as she arrived on the red carpet at the Float Like a Butterfly Ball alongside her beau.

The ex-TOWIE star looked glamorous in her jewel tone gown, which featured a plunge neckline and incredibly flattering fishtail silhouette.

It's from Portia & Scarlett and, while the original piece isn't a maternity gown, it looks as if she's had it altered to perfectly hug her adorable growing bump.

The emerald colourway is beyond luxe, while the satin gives the piece a sultry feel.

Danielle went public with her new boyfriend with a loved-up Instagram post back in September and wrote at the time: 'Life has a funny way of working out just when I decided to give up on love my friend of 22 years swept me off my feet.

'You don’t find love it finds you, it’s got a little a to do with destiny & fate, and what’s written in the stars #mybestfriend #love #happiness'.

The reality star and her childhood sweetheart fell in love just months after she split from her long-term boyfriend Daniel in June.  

Six weeks after their split, Danielle jetted off on a heartbreak holiday to Marbella with her best friend Ferne, where she was seen packing on the PDA with her new love interest.

'They kissed and hugged and looked very happy together', an eye-witness said.

Danielle and Daniel had been dating on and off since late 2016, but are said to have called time on their relationship because they became 'more like friends than lovers'.  

The former couple first parted ways in August 2017, before reuniting a month later and splitting once again a few weeks later.

They decided to give their love a second shot in 2018, with Daniel supporting Danielle throughout a tricky year, which saw her best friend Sammy pass away at the age of just 29 after a battle with breast cancer. 

However they decided to end things for good in June.

Back in 2014, the television personality revealed on the show that she and James had suffered a heartbreaking miscarriage. 

She said at the time: 'We went to have our first scan and the doctors told me I was in the middle of having a miscarriage.

'When I found out I was pregnant, I didn't know whether I wanted to keep it. I didn't want to bring a baby into our relationship when all we were arguing so much. But I lost it anyway.' 

During a chat with Chloe Sims, Danielle went on to admit that while James was supportive when he first found out she was pregnant, he wasn't there for her after the miscarriage.  

While Danielle has moved on and found love with her best friend, James, 32, is reportedly lined-up to star on the next series of Celebs Go Dating after his recent split from Yazmin Oukhellou.
