The Virgin Media British Academy Television Awards opened up the red carpet to a slew of wonderfully dressed television personalities today.
The Bafta TV Awards 2021 nominations features nods to acclaimed shows including I May Destroy You, Small Axe and The Crown, with the line-up also featuring a range of first-time nominees, including Paul Mescal, Weruche Opia and Shaun Parkes.
In a departure from tradition, this year’s guest presenters will appear in person as well as via hologram during the award show.
As they ready to battle it out at the coveted ceremony, some of the biggest TV stars were out in force in their suitably gorgeous outfits.
