Konnie Huq slips into mute Twitter Halloween costume

She appeared on Loose Women on Monday, opening up about former boss Simon Cowell's 'nocturnal ways' and odd timekeeping, claiming that he would keep X factor  staff waiting 'for hours'.

But it looked as though outspoken Konnie Huq had a change of heart as she stepped out on Tuesday evening to attend Jonathan Ross' Halloween party in London. 

The former children's presenter, 42, stepped out in a mute Twitter costume, accompanied by her husband of eight years Charlie Brooker, who opted for a Super Mario ensemble.

Konnie, who was the longest-serving female presenter of Blue Peter, having presented it from 1 December 1997 until 23 January 2008, was seen in an all-black ensemble brandishing a large Twitter board. 

She kept the rest of her look simple, besides painting a muzzle over her mouth, presumably signifying she was staying mute about something. 

She was joined by husband Charlie, who she shares Covey, 5, and Huxley, 3, with, and he opted for a bright blue and red Super Mario costume, complete with coordinating cap. 

The mother-of-two, who previously presented Xtra Factor in 2010, attended the star-studded party alongside the likes of Nicole Scherzinger and Ed Sheeran.

Her appearance came  after she spoke out in the midst of Simon Cowell's health scare, admitting that he leads a nocturnal lifestyle which would see him show up to the ITV set after lunchtime.

Filling in for Richard Arnold, the former Blue Peter presenter took over the entertainment news reins on Monday's Good Morning Britain as she sat alongside X Factor evictee Spencer Sutherland to discuss this weekend's debut live show.
