A string of stars were bathed in sunshine as they walked the red carpet at London's Royal Festival Hall on Sunday.

Nominees and guests posed for photos as they gathered for one of television's biggest nights of the year- the Bafta TV Awards.

Most actors were able to pretend convincingly they would rather be wearing a black tuxedo in central London than sitting in their garden sunbathing.

Here is a selection of the best photos. We hope you're a fan of the logo for the cruise company sponsoring the event, as you're about to see a lot of it in the background:
