Celebrities have started to descend upon the red carpet at the Royal Festival Hall in all their fineries for this year’s Bafta TV Awards, with Claudia Winkleman leading the way.
The star-studded annual ceremony, which honours the best of British television, will be hosted by comedians Rob Beckett, 37, and Romesh Ranganathan, 45, and is set to see the likes of Cillian Murphy, 46, and Gary Oldman, 65, go head to head for best actor.
Claudia totally won the carpet with her outfit giving a special nod to the acclaimed new reality game series The Traitors, which she presented at the end of 2022.
Dressed in a black suit and leggings, the 51-year-old had the word ‘faithful’ emblazoned on the back of her blazer in white font.
For those who missed out on the binge-worthy BBC show, which is nominated for reality and constructed factual, ‘faithful’ refers to the members of the group who are honest and trustworthy.
The role of the faithfuls is to banish all of the traitors from the group before the end of the game.
Elsewhere, former love Island #love Islandhost Laura Whitmore, 38, was among the first arrivals and oozed sophistication in a black spaghetti strap dress which featured a thigh split and cut out detailing underneath the bust.
Radio DJ Clara Amfo, 38, who is broadcasting live from the red carpet on Bafta’s YouTube channel, was a vision in a coral-coloured bandeau mini dress.
Strictly Come Dancing judge Motsi Mabuse, 42, looked enchanting in a gorgeous white see-through gown boasting of floral detailing.
The Saturdays singer Frankie Bridge, 34, kept things conservative in a black rollneck maxi, which featured side cut outs above her hips.
Coronation Street actress Catherine Tyldesley, 39, also posed for photographs on the carpet and stunned in a Cinderella-esque baby blue gown with silver emebellishments.
Tonight’s ceremony will be broadcast on BBC One and iPlayer, with proceedings kicking off at 7pm.
This year, acting heavyweights Cillian Murphy, Gary Oldman, and Taron Egerton, 33, are among the first-time nominees and will compete with Martin Freeman, 51, and Ben Whishaw, 42, for best actor.
Meanwhile, the best actress prize will see Kate Winslet, 47, compete against Imelda Staunton, 67, for The Crown, Billie Piper, 40, for I Hate Suzie Too, Maxine Peake, 48, for Anne, Sarah Lancashire, 58, for Julia and Vicky McClure, 40, for Without Sin.
The BBC will compete in the live event category, receiving nods for its coverage of the Queen’s state funeral and Party At The Palace during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
Paddington Bear’s meeting with the Queen during the Platinum Jubilee celebrations is competing for this year’s memorable moment award, alongside the series finale of Channel 4 comedy Derry Girls, in which the people of Northern Ireland vote overwhelmingly for peace, and Sir Mo Farah revealing he was illegally trafficked to the UK during a BBC One documentary.
The TV moment of the year also features the scene from Netflix series Stranger Things in which the cast rescue Max from the demonic Vecna by playing her favourite song, Kate Bush’s Running Up That Hill, as well as the final roundtable on BBC’s The Traitors and Nick and Charlie’s first kiss in cult Netflix series Heartstopper.
