Chris Hughes set up a united front with his girlfriend Jesy Nelson when the two went to the National Television Awards almost two weeks after his explosive fight with a photographer.

It was the first time that they were seen together in public since the incident that led to a police investigation.

The Little Mix star seemed downright sensational in a high-waisted snake skin pair of trousers combined with a black crop top that flashed a glimpse of her tight abdominal muscles.
She wore her belongings in a Dior bag and wore her long maroon locks in loose waves for maximum glamor.
Her brave beau led her into the room, grasped her hand tightly and seemed to stand beside her once in the restaurant.

Shocking: it was the first time they were seen in public together since Chris had an explosive line with a photographer at the NTAs – resulting in a police investigation
The former Love Islander is being investigated by the police after an incident in which he attacks a photographer at the National Television Awards.
He said he was provoked at the time by being called a c ** t.
The National Television Awards caused a lot of drama and ups and downs for the couple.
After the delight of Jesy who won her prize for her BBC Three documentary, Odd One Out, things became sour for the couple who were seen outside of a fight.
It was revealed to MailOnline that the line was fueled after the ex-Love Island star was banned from doing interviews with his girlfriend.

He was angry after being told that Jesy himself would answer press questions in an effort to “protect her image” – despite the couple attending the ceremony together.
A source revealed exclusively: “Chris would seize the opportunity to do an interview for the red carpet with Jesy, but they were limited to only posing for photos as a couple at high profile events.”
An insider continued: ‘Chris was upset after it was agreed that Jesy would only do interviews about her documentary.
“He supports 100% of her trip with Odd One Out and even appears in the doc, so he was not happy to stand by the NTAs.
“He usually understands that Jesy’s work is unrelated to their relationship, but he was told on the night that he would not chat with Jesy, which outraged him.
“After their queue, he was pent up and struggled to contain his frustration, which led to his outburst against the photographer.”
MailOnline contacted the representation of Chris and Jesy for comments.
