Claudia Winkleman just won a BAFTA TV Award for Entertainment Performance in "The Traitors", and her acceptance speech was a total mood. The 51-year-old took the time to thank the team behind the reality show, but didn't let the opportunity pass up to ask her husband — in public — if they could grow their family by four paws. "To my husband Kris (please can we have a dog?) that's in brackets," the mum-of-three said during her emotional speech.

Elsewhere on the red carpet, Winkleman let her clothes do all the talking as she arrived on the BAFTA TV Awards red carpet. Not only did she prove she would be a "faithful" if she were to appear on the hit BBC show "The Traitors" should she move from host to contestant, but she also made a rare public appearance with her husband of 22 years, Kris Thykier.

Posing in front of the camera, Winkleman hugged her husband to show off the writing on the back of her blazer. The couple married in 2000 and have three children together: Jake, Matilda, and Arthur, but are notoriously private about their personal life. Stepping out for date night at the BAFTA TV Awards at London's Royal Festival Hall on 14 May, Thykier, who works in the film industry, wore a dapper tuxedo for the occasion. Winkleman chose black leggings with white stilettos teamed with a black blazer embroidered with the word "faithful" on the back, in a nod to the reality TV show she presents. Her signature thick fringe and black eyeliner were, of course, styled perfectly.

Winkleman has both "The Traitors" and "Strictly Come Dancing" nominated for awards this evening so has reason to celebrate, and we love that her husband is there to support her. Keep reading for more loved-up pics on the red carpet.
