It’s just hours until one of the glitziest nights in the TV calendar, the National Television Awards 2012, kick off, and stars have been busy getting red carpet-ready all day.

The 17th annual awards ceremony will see over a thousand of TV’s biggest faces pack into London’s O2 Arena, as the nation’s favourite faces from the small screen battle it out in 14 fiercely-contested categories.

Everyone wants to look their very best at the glamorous event, and celebs from Dancing on Ice to the faces off reality show The Only Way Is Essex have been keeping everyone updated via Twitter on their detailed preparations…

Earlier today, TOWIE star Lucy Mecklenburgh took to Twitter to write: “TOWIE shoot done, now getting ready for the NTAs .. Gettin my hair done in @MarsandVenusBW and makeup by @KayleighWhiting !! Excited! x [sic].”

Fellow TOWIE star Lauren Pope is also used to getting glammed up for a big night out, but the model and DJ has revealed that she’s having a bit of a nightmare – her dress for the awards is missing!

She wrote: “Just started gettin ready for the NTAs so exciting altho my dress still hasn't arrived yet eeeeeeek fingers crossed it does [sic]!!!”

Meanwhile former TOWIE and I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! runner-up Mark Wright – who always makes sure he looks sharp at red carpet events - is also having a last minute panic.

The 25-year-old Tweeted: “Having a stressed day!! the a12 is shut so can't go home to get ready for the NTA's will have to go from london. Grrrr emergency shop [sic]!!”

Dancing on Ice contestant and Sugababes singer Heidi Range seemed slightly more prepared for tonight's event, writing: “Quick change of footwear and then I'm off to the NTA's x.” She posted a snap of her ice skates from the show sitting next to huge black and gold platform heels, which she’s getting ready to show off tonight.

And Dancing on Ice and Emmerdale hunk Matthew Wolfenden also seems excited about attending tonight’s awards – although it sounds like his saop co-star Danny Miller’s outfit is going to be considerably less dressy than some of the other attendees…

He wrote: “@DannyBMiller: Arrived into the capital!! Ready for tonight!#NTA's” you can't wear those track suit bottoms tucked in to your socks! Danny!”

We can’t wait to see him on the red carpet…

The National Television Awards kick off at 7.30pm on STV.
