Debbie McGee, 61, looked incredible when she stepped out in London last night.

The popular TV and radio personality showed off her trim figure in a beautiful velvet dress when she attended the Good Morning Britain 1 Million Minutes Awards.

The former Strictly Come Dancing finalist joined a host a famous faces and ITV presenters such as Kate Garraway and Charlotte Hawkins at the GMB event.

The GMB 1 Million Minutes campaign is raising awareness for loneliness in the UK and calls for people to pledge their time to help older people who are lonely.

This year’s winter campaign focused on helping those who are lonely through loss.

This could be because of bereavement, separation, dementia, ill health or disability.

As the widow of magician Paul Daniels, who passed away in 2016 at the age of 77, Debbie has dealt with grief first hand.

In an appearance on Good Morning Britain this morning, presenter Kate Garraway, 52, asked Debbie if she felt like she was in a “grief prison” following the death of her husband of 28 years.

The performer replied: “You are,” before explaining the feeling a little further.

She said: “Because I am in the public eye, people know what I am going through.

“And what’s really important with grief is, it used to be that people thought grief shrunk with time, time heals and all that, but what they believe now, is grief stays the same size, it’s how you build your life around it and make it bigger.”

Kate’s co-presenter Charlotte Hawkins, 44, said she was really struck by how intensely Debbie still feels grief almost four years after the death of her partner.

The radio presenter told the host it helped to have a “purpose” and a reason to get up in the morning.

Debbie explained: “As long as I’ve got things to do I’m fine.

“I’m very happy to have nights at home alone and not feel lonely, but everyday you still get up without them, so you have to have a purpose.

“And I just find that the days I don’t have a purpose I really have to force myself to do something.”
