Emilia Fox ensured she stayed warm in a chilly Manchester on Monday morning – but still managed to look stylish ahead of an appearance on breakfast television.
The 40-year-old actress was outside BBC studios in Salford Quays, and she caught the eye courtesy of a rather sophisticated ensemble as she made her way inside with a small suitcase.
Emilia, best known for her starring role in Silent Witness, opted for a grey shawl coat that served as adequate protection from the winter cold.

The British star teamed her coat with a pair of khaki green skinny trousers, while strappy shoes completed the tasteful look.
Accessorising wisely, Emilia opted for a brown leather Mulberry handbag that casually hung from the crook of her left arm.
Opting for limited make-up, the actress showed off her distinctive features while preparing for a promotional interview with Silent Witness co-star Richard Lintern.

Plenty to talk about: Emilia and Richard were on hand to talk about their long-running show
Emilia plays respected forensic pathologist Dr. Nikki Alexander in the show, and she recently admitted to observing a real autopsy while preparing for the role.
‘My fear was that I would faint or be embarrassing in that situation, but of course because it is so riveting, you don’t,’ she told the Express.
‘It seemed like a natural death. But what was fascinating was the process of going through the body until finally pinning down exactly what it was that had caused his death.’

She added: ‘I found it quite thought-provoking and upsetting afterwards but then I decided, ‘Actually, no, life is all about living it in the moment and making the most of it while you’re here.
‘This was backed up by a second autopsy I saw on a young man who had a tragic, untimely death.
‘That really reconfirmed to me that we must make the most of life.’

Richard Lintern and Emilia Fox promise gore and humour in the new series of BBC crime thriller Silent Witness, back for its 18th season.
”We are encouraged…to include that humour to balance out the darkness of the series,” said Emilia Fox, who plays forensic pathologist Dr Nikki Alexander.
Richard Lintern, who plays Dr Thomas Chamberlain, said Tuesday’s episode begins with a triple shooting.

Space, like time, engenders forgetfulness; but it does so by setting us bodily free from our surroundings and giving us back our primitive, unattached state … Time, we say, is Lethe; but change of air is a similar draught, and, if it works less thoroughly, does so more quickly. – Thomas Mann
When three people are shot dead at a petrol station, Nikki and Jack strive to track down the sniper at large in London and stem a public crisis.
Silent Witness returns in less than a week on BBC One, 6th January at 9pm. Tune in!
