New mum Suranne oozed sophistication in a cold shoulder black midi dress on Thursday night (21 April).
The last time Suranne sashayed down the red carpet she was sporting a huge baby bump - making the surprise announcement at the National Television Awards that she was expecting.
The former Coronation Street actress actually welcomed her first child - a son - with husband Laurence Akers last month.
She told The Sun at the BAFTA party: "This is the first night out that I've had. I'm not going to be out late. I'm still on maternity leave, as much as actresses can be on maternity leave. I had by baby seven weeks ago, so I'm just starting to get into a routine.
For Suranne, she will also be stepping down from her role in Scott & Bailey. Suranne and Lesley Sharp's TV drama, which is currently in its fifth series, will be its final one.
Suranne, who came up with the concept for the series with her friend Sally Lindsay, told Radio Times online: "We knew we were saying goodbye, so now that it's out there, well, it's good I think. It's good to move on.
"We said we weren't going to do another one last series, and then when ITV said, 'Would you like to do another one?', we kind of thought [why not], because there's been quite a break between the last one and this one. I was pregnant so I knew that I couldn't do more than three episodes."
