The BAFTA TV Awards 2021 will prove to one for the history books, as stars who are unable to attend will be beamed onto the red carpet in hologram form.

But Billie Piper, Jodie Comer, Michaela Coel, and Oti Mabuse were among the select celebrities to make it onto the red carpet in person on Sunday, when they arrived at west London‘s TV Centre in truly head-turning style.

Pop star-turned-actress Billie, 38, wowed she arrived on the red carpet in a black tuxedo dress, which was given a dramatic touch with a single puffy pink sleeve, which descended into a matching bow and train.

With one half of her dress covered in sequins, the star – who has been nominated for her turn in I Hate Suzie – toted a clutch bag, while she opted to accessorise with a glittering statement necklace.

Meanwhile, fellow nominee Jodie, 38, kept things simple yet elegant in a navy sleeveless top with matching high-waisted trousers, which she gave a summery touch with open-toe heels.

While her ensemble was simple, the Killing Eve star added bold jewellery, including an open choker and colourful earrings as she posed up a storm for photographers gathered on the red carpet.

Also nominated on the night, acclaimed actress and screenwriter Michaela, 33, looked incredible in a flowing backless gown and with a statement red cuff sleeve detail.

This year, BAFTA will be beaming celebrities that can’t attend onto the red carpet as holograms.  

And ceremony hosts Stacey Dooley and Vick Hope will introduce the hologram guests to those actually at the socially distanced ceremony.  

Of her red carpet role, Vick revealed last week: ‘If you’re anything like me, over the last year your WhatsApp groups will have been nonstop about a recent episode or moment in the latest TV drama, documentary, reality or even cooking show.

‘It’s made me fall in love with TV all over again, and it’s because of this that I think that the Virgin Media BAFTAs feels extra special this year.

‘To be able to chat directly with the TV fans who have voted for their favourite Must-See Moment nominee and connect them to their favourite stars via holograms live on the red carpet will be a unique, once in a lifetime experience. 

‘I’m so excited to bring a bit of this magic to the fans at home, it’s going to be an emotional one.’

COVID-19 restrictions mean TV fans can’t be in attendance on the red carpet as usual this year and some nominees won’t be able to attend because of filming bubbles.

All content will be captured by a live stream camera and will enable everyone at home to see the action unfold from the comfort of their living room.
