Getting ready...

Bobby: "I love the NTAs, so I was really excited for the event and have been looking forward to it for so long. I always worry about wearing the same thing as somebody else. Nobody wants that awks moment of somebody wearing the same outfit as you! To get RCR (red carpet ready), I had an all-over spray tan (no white bits here!), hair cut and spent an hour beautifying myself."

Ferne: "I was so excited on the night, but only left myself an hour and a half to get ready – nowhere near long enough! I did my own hair and make up, but now I regret the bouffant hair. I loved my dress, as I thought it was really different, but in hindsight my shoes didn't go. We can't get it right all the time!"

Backstage pass...

Bobby: "I briefly met Mel B, which was amazing, as I have always been a Spice Boy so have a huge amount of love for the girls! I wanted to find Kris Jenner and ask for a selfie, just for the bants, but I couldn't find her. There's always next time. But next year, Kris, bring Khloe and Kim with you babes and make it a right old family affair!

"I met Linda Robson from Birds of a Feather, which was amazing because I've been a fan since I was a kid.

"I also hung around with my TOWIE gals Jess Wright, Gemma Collins and Chloe Sims, who all looked great.

"There were a few outfit fails on the red carpet! I won't mention names, but I think a couple of people didn't quite get the memo and thought they were going to Hogwarts. Others looked like they were just going down the deli to buy some bagels."

Ferne: "I spent a lot of my night with the Geordie Shore cast, which was so fun. I am gutted they didn't win their category! Being the food lover I am, I loved meeting and chatting with Bake Off's Paul Hollywood and his wife.

"I also hung out with Tiffany Watson from Made In Chelsea and Charlie and I caught up with Mario Falcone. I got a bit tipsy and embarrassed myself in front Marvin Humes, oops!"

Home time...

Bobby: "It was such an AMAZING evening, but like all amazing evenings, you wake up with a not so amazing hangover. Eurgh, I'm not going to lie I did feel slightly delicate when I woke up and was stood at the kitchen sink downing a pint glass of water and rooting around in the cupboards for some painkillers.

"I nipped out to McDonald's for a double sausage and egg McMuffin, which really sorted me out. And, do you know what, I'd do it all again tomorrow as it was such a fabulous evening."

Ferne: "After such a good night, I was bound to be hungover this morning and I really am paying the price for it! Look at my hair! I can't complain, it was such a fun night."
