Stacey Solomon appeared to blame her absence from the NTAs on pregnancy hormones, joking that she ‘forgot’ to attend.
The Loose Women star, 31, took to Instagram to make the confession as she watched the show from the comfort of her home.
‘When you feel like you have forgotten something?’ she wrote, giggling away as her sausage dog cosied up to her bump.
The former X Factor star said: ‘Another thing I forgot to do today, go to the NTA’s. Whoops.’
The Tap to Tidy author laughed off her mistake, sharing a screenshot of her calendar with the big night clearly marked in it.
She also wished her co-stars ‘good luck’ as she remained tucked up on the couch, awaiting the birth of her baby girl.
The mum-of-three is currently expecting her first baby girl with fiancé Joe Swash, 39, with whom she shares two-year-old Rex.
Stacey has two other children, Zachary, 13, and Leighton, nine, from previous relationships.
The couple recently held a baby shower at their Essex mansion to celebrate the impending arrival of their first daughter.
Wearing a flowing pink silk gown with flowers cascading through her plaited auburn locks, Stacey glowed as she enjoyed the lavish baby shower at her Essex home.
The TV star shared a series of adorable snaps with her 4.6m followers, showing Joe cradling her baby bump and gazing lovingly at his wife-to-be.
The happy couple grinned from ear-to-ear as they enjoyed the beautiful afternoon arranged by Stacey’s older sister, with pink flowers decorating their garden and a table decorated with beautiful cutlery and greenery.
Stacey’s Loose Women co-stars Jane Moore, Nadia Sawalha and Judi Love were also in attendance.
However, the panel weren’t celebrating for long, as Loose Women lost out to This Morning for an 11th consecutive year in the daytime show category at last night’s NTAs.
Other big winners on the night were Ant and Dec, who scooped the TV presenter award for a 20th year running, and Kate Garraway in the authored documentary category.
It was also a special night for Coronation Street, who took home three awards in the best newcomer, serial drama performance and serial drama categories.
