Catch all the red carpet arrivals from the glittering 2016 TV BAFTAS!
It was the hottest day of the year so far, but that didn’t stop the celebrities dressing up in all their finery to walk the red carpet at the 2016 British Academy Television Awards.
TV stars and celebrities stepped out at the Royal Festival Hall on the Southbank, and the red carpet looks certainly didn’t disappoint. From LBDs to princess-style gowns and even one or two sparkly suits, the evening’s guests went all out for the most celebrated event in British television.

The new mother won the coveted Leading Actress award for her role in the gripping series Doctor Foster, and admitted to suffering from ‘baby brain’ in her acceptance speech – although we’d never have guessed, from how put-together she looked and sounded.
