Daisy Edgar-Jones and Paul Mescal were reunited on Friday afternoon as the Normal People co-stars attended the socially distanced  Virgin Media BAFTA British Academy Television Awards held at Television Centre in London.

The pair were in high spirits as they made an early red carpet showing at the star studded event, their first joint appearance since being propelled to stardom on the BBC Three show.

The actors were joined by a host of glamorous arrivals at the television studios including Emily Atack, 30, and Stacey Dooley, 33, while nominees including Killing Eve star Jodie Comer celebrated from home.

Adhering to the social distancing guidelines that have been put in place as a consequence of COVID-19, onscreen lovers Paul and Daisy stayed two metres apart while posing for photos.   

Referencing the abrupt changes to protocol, the pair held each end of a tape measure for the benefit of waiting photographers as they stood the required distance apart. 

Looking appropriately glamorous, Daisy, 22, commanded attention in a sweeping black gown with mesh embellishments while joining her former co-star. 

With a delicately cinched waistline, the outfit drew attention to her slender physique, while a notable lack of accessories gave the overall look an understated flourish.

Speaking on social media during a pre-ceremony interview, Paul spoke of their excitement to be starring in Normal People and what they made of the show’s success.

He said: ‘It’s hard to tell but I think both myself and Daisy were so excited to be doing it, but it’s kind of grown legs.’

Daisy explained: ‘It’s really surreal like being in person to talk about it, because we’ve mostly been in our own rooms,’ she said, referring to their previous interviews about the show having taken place via Zoom.

Asked whether she felt pressure being in a show that’s based on a beloved book, she admitted: ‘Before filming it was like “ooh” you get cast and you’re like “this is the best thing ever,” and then you’re like “I can’t do this.”

‘It has been a bit of a whirlwind and something we’re both incredibly grateful for,’ added Paul.

Daisy agreed, and admitted the BAFTAs was the first taste of how successful Normal People has been, as she said: ‘It’s really nice but it’s also hard to wrap your head around.

‘This is the first time I’ve actually been to an event, and this is the first time I’m getting my head wrapped around what it really means.’

Emily Atack and Stacey Dooley were among the first of the glamorous arrivals at the TV BAFTAs, which is being held in a closed studio in accordance with social distancing guidelines.

The comedian and TV presenter, 30, still pulled out all the stops despite the unusual circumstances, as she donned a chic duck egg blue shorts suit for the occasion. 

Emily teamed her stylish linen suit with a plunging black top, while completing her look with a pair of strappy black heeled sandals.

Richard, who has himself won a BAFTA, previously joked about hosting the socially distanced programme: ‘I am as surprised as you are that this is still going ahead.’

Killing Eve star Jodie has led a bevvy of stars preparing to celebrate the 2020 British Academy Television Awards’ first ever socially-distanced ceremony from home.

The actress, 27, shared a stunning social media snap of the plunging mixed-printed dress as she prepared to mark the occasion with her BBQ at her Liverpool home.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many stars have been forced to stay at home for the usually lavish and glitzy awards ceremony, which will take place at Television Centre with strictly distancing measures in place.  

Jodie shared a stunning snap of her dress, which boasted a plunging front and an array of floral prints as she posed with her blonde billowing in the breeze, joking she ‘nearly had to wear her pyjamas to the ceremony’ as her outfit had been delivered just hours earlier.

Ready to go! Gentleman Jack star Suranne Jones also shared a snap ahead of the ceremony, wearing her character Anne Lister's signature top hat

Glass of champagne in hand, the star revealed she’d be celebrating at her home with a laid-back BBQ.

Her caption read: ‘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!’

Jodie is nominated for Leading Actress for her performance as the ruthless assassin Villanelle, and will go head-to-head with Gentleman Jack’s Suranne Jones, I Am Kirsty star Samantha Morton for I Am Kirsty, and Elizabeth Is Missing’s Glenda Jackson.

‘The Gentleman Jack team are very honoured to have been included in the Drama series category. With so much content out there to choose from.. this is already a massive win for us.’

The star-studded presenting line-up in the studio includes, Adrian Lester, Daisy Edgar-Jones, Greg Davies, Himesh Patel, Jessia Hynes, Joe Cole, Nina Sosanya, Paul Mescal, Sope Dirisu and Stacey Dooley.

Richard will also be joined virtually by some big names in television including Billy Porter, Chris O’Dowd, David Tennant, Jeff Goldblum, Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Michael Sheen and Ruth Madeley, who will be presenting awards via video link.

Audiences will also be treated to two performances from internationally-acclaimed comedian, musician, actor and writer Tim Minchin, including an original song composed specially for the event.

British actor, writer and producer Idris Elba will receive the Special Award, one of BAFTA’s highest accolades, in recognition of his exceptional career and commitment to championing diversity and new talent in the industry. There will also be some very special surprise guests dialling in to present his award on the night.

The winner of the Virgin Media’s Must-See Moment Award will also be announced. As the only award to be voted for by the public, the Must-See Moment celebrates the dramatic scenes, cliff hangers and edge-of-your-seat moments that truly resonated with TV fans across the UK.

The conclusion to last year’s Gavin and Stacey Christmas special, in which Ruth Jones’ character Nessa proposed to James Corden‘s alter-ego Smithy, is among the contenders in the shortlist, which is voted for by the British public.

Line Of Duty’s shock killing of undercover police officer John Corbett, played by Stephen Graham, is up for the award, while the scene where Arya Stark kills the Night King in the final season of Game Of Thrones also got a nod.    

Elsewhere, BAFTA have responded to criticism of its lack of diversity by nominating three times as many BAME actors and performers as last year’s TV awards show. 

Nine stars including Sex Education’s Ncuti Gatwa, The End of the F***ing World’s Naomi Ackie and comedians Guz Khan and Mo Gilligan are among those nominated for the individual awards.

They make up around a third of all those nominated, a marked improvement on the three from last year.

BAFTA has come under fire for its lack of representation in both its film and TV award shows in recent years.
