NEWSREADER Mary Nightingale was the star of a charity show in skintight PVC.

The ITN presenter stunned the crowd at News r o om's Go t Talent in London with her Avengers -style catsuit.

Mary, 47, was part of the ITN team who won the group category of the contest, which pitted stars from various channels against each other.

And she also went solo to perform Bonnie Tyler's Holding Out For A Hero.

Her former ITN colleague Katie Derham, who recently left to join t he Beeb, changed channels again to play with the band for the night.

She wore a pink ra-ra skirt and showed off her moves as the ITN band did a medley of songs from the movie Foot loose. Mary said: "I had a fantastic evening. It was great to be among people who were willing to make fool s of themselves for charity.

"We all had a wonderful time."

Katie said: "For one night only, I was back with my ITV friends, wearing leg warmers and a ra-ra skirt. What could be more fun for a better cause?"

Jeremy Vine, Ben Brown, Joanna Gosling and Naga Munchetty made up the BBC team, dressing up in 80s power suits and fur jackets to perform Don't You Want Me Baby.

And Krishnan Guru-Murthy, on guitar for Channel 4, was resplendent in a lime green Sergeant Pepper-style suit.

The annual event raised funds for Leonard Cheshire Disability, Helen & Douglas House Hospice and the mental health charity SANE.

The presenters were judged by former Strictly star Arlene Phillips, Pineapple Dance Studios' Louie Spence and radio DJ and onetime Big Breakfast presenter Johnny Vaughan.
