Stars dazzle on red carpet including Daley, Bellingham and Laura Kenny, but can anyone stop Raducanu winning SPOTY?12/19/2021
BRITAIN'S sporting stars dazzled on the red carpet as they arrived for Sports Personality of the Year.
Olympic stars Tom Daley and Laura Kenny were among those arriving at MediaCity in Salford this evening.
Teenage sensations Sky Brown and Jude Bellingham also rocked up early doors for the glam event.
The former, still only 13, took bronze in Tokyo and arrived with her trusty skateboard in hand.

But will anyone be able to stop Emma Raducanu from winning the coveted prize?
The tennis teen blew away the field at the US Open.
The qualifier did not drop a single set in ten matches, including three qualifiers, as she broke record after record on her way to lifting the title at Flushing Meadows.

Despite her deals with Dior and Tiffany, the Bromley hero was due to be in Abu Dhabi for an exhibition pre-season warm-up tournament.
But she contracted Covid this week and therefore is currently self-isolating at a hotel in the Middle East.
