TOM HIDDLESTON ALERT: Our best pictures from the BAFTA TV red carpet
The stars (and sun) were truly out in full force for last night’s House of Fraser BAFTA TV Awards (May 8th 2016), held at London’s prestigious Royal Festival Hall. From nominees to presenters, to those guests who had no obvious reason for being there besides dressing up and being along for the ride, the red carpet was aflood with stars including Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Justin Timberlake, Anna Kendrick, and Josh Hartnett. We had the absolute joy of putting on our own best dresses and speaking to the biggest names in the industry as they made their way into the venue. We also had the privilege of speaking to the winners of each award as they celebrated backstage, so do stay tuned for that next instalment! For now, here’s the who’s who of the media on the BAFTA TV red carpet.
