A host of this year’s BAFTA TV nominees dressed up at home this evening, as they watched the ceremony virtually.

The awards ceremony took place in London tonight, hosted in a closed studio by Richard Ayoade.

The socially-distanced show, which was broadcast on BBC One, saw this year’s winners accept their awards virtually – amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Although they couldn’t attend the ceremony in person, some stars decided to dress up for the occasion – including Jodie Comer, who was nominated in the Leading Actress category for her role in Killing Eve.

Taking to Instagram, the actress posed in a dress by Nigerian-born fashion designer Duro Olowu.

She captioned the post: “BAFTA is looking a little different this year…. I’ve swapped the Royal Festival Hall for a BBQ in the back garden!!”

“Shout out to the legend General Manager at Liverpool Parcelforce who hand delivered this beautiful @duroolowu dress to me this morning.”

“After saying I was going to wear my pyjamas to this year’s BAFTAs I nearly got what I wished for! And thanks to @noblepanacea for the glow. Congratulations to all the nominees, let’s dance! ????????”

Coronation Street actress Katie McGlynn also dressed up for the occasion, by wearing a red Nadine Merabi dress.
