Casey Batchelor was among the stars who stepped out in London for the Reveal Online Fashion Awards, sponsored by Pro:Voke Touch of Silver, on Tuesday night (20 May).

The Celebrity Big Brother star looked impossibly glam as she made an entrance at the do, arm-in-arm with her BFF and TOWIE star Danielle Armstrong.

Model Casey showed off her golden tan in a little white dress by Rare London, topping her pins with strappy Roberto Cavalli heels while toting all her essentials in a purple Kurt Geiger clutch. She also wore a white Curbzz bracelet, available for £49.

Since leaving the CBB house, Casey has been quite the regular on the showbiz circuit and has entered the world of fashion too, releasing her own line of leggings for Wild! Leggings.

Speaking to Reveal about her collection, the starlet said: "There are ten different styles and they're all funky, for all different occasions - day or night. You could dress them up or just go casual with them.

"I love leggings, if you saw me in the [CBB] house I wore leggings a lot! I had the feather leggings, the Egyptian leggings… they're just comfy and easy to wear. They make an outfit, you can wear a plain top with funky leggings and you've got a great look."

But it wasn't just her leggings which caught the public's attention while Casey was in the CBB house - the pretty brunette got caught up in a love triangle with Blue's Lee Ryan and Jasmine Waltz.

When asked whether she still talks to Lee, Casey said: "I've spoken to him just through friends really. He's a good guy, he's got a good heart. He's been going through a difficult time at the minute and I've made it aware to him that I'm here if he needs me. He knows that now."

Viewers also saw Casey strike up a close friendship with TV presenter Jim Davidson, as well as former Made In Chelsea star Ollie Locke and rapper Dappy.

"I speak to Ollie nearly every day," said Casey. "Jim I speak to a lot, Dappy I'll have the occasional phone call with, Luisa Zissman occasionally too and sometimes Sam Faiers. They're the ones I keep in touch with."

Now we reckon it's fair to say the model must attract her fair share of admirers, so has she met the man of her dreams?

"No love life with me!" Casey laughed. "It's awful isn't it? No one wants me! I was on the lookout for love, I was on the hunt and then I thought, 'I'm not looking anymore. The summer is here and I'm going to enjoy myself.' If it comes it comes, but I'm not looking."

While she was in the house, rumours also circulated that the starlet had previously dated singer will.i.am, but Casey admits the pair are just friends.

"Will is just a good friend, I've known him for a while. When he's here we'll meet up and that. But he is just a friend, he's a gentleman, really lovely guy. Honestly, he's an amazing guy!"

She's also got big plans for the future, saying: "I've got my beachwear range which is hopefully coming out in the next couple of months, and I've been speaking to some film directors. I've got a few other things in the pipeline which I can't discuss just yet, but I've got a lot going on. I'm happy."
