While the night belonged to cyclist Bradley Wiggins, an appearance from David Beckham and pregnant Kate Middleton, who wowed in an Alexander McQueen gown, having recuperated after her bout in hospital due to morning sickness, made for a Sports Personality of the Year Awards 2012 spectacle.

Although the Duchess of Cambridge had bowed out of four public appearances since leaving hospital last week, Kate was back on fine form and keen to honour her role as Team GB Ambassador to present two awards at the ceremony.
Elegant as ever, Kate opted for an emerald Alexander McQueen gown complete with bell sleeves, peplum panels and a daring thigh-high split. Classic black Jimmy Choo heels, Kiki McDonough earrings and glossy locks were the perfect finishing touches.
