The BAFTA Awards will make history on Sunday as stars who weren’t able to attend the event are beamed onto the red carpet in hologram form. 

And AJ Odudu – who attended in person – looked stunning as she stepped out on the red carpet in a red feathered one-shoulder gown at the awards on Sunday.

The TV presenter, 33, looked sensational as she posed in the statement ruby gown and white stilettos.

AJ took to the carpet with confidence as she worked her angles for the camera in the feathered gown, which featured a sultry backless detail. 

She accessorised with a selection of glittering jewellery, including a diamond bangle, choker and dinky earrings.

The presenter wore her raven tresses in a sleek bob, which she tucked behind her ears as she beamed for photographers. 

Oozing glamour, AJ looked radiant in the jewel toned ensemble and opted for a  natural makeup look as she let the statement outfit speak for itself.

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.’

Jewels: She accessorised with a selection of glittering jewellery, including a diamond bangle, choker and dinky earrings

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.

Members of the public can watch a livestream of the red carpet and be a part of the glamour by visiting Virgin’s website from noon on Sunday.

They can also choose from a selection of digital red carpet outfits to help them get into the spirit of the Awards and get ready carpet ready.

If selected, they will be beamed onto the red carpet and could even ask a question to their favourite celeb with a video of the interaction being sent to the fan after.

Several of the year’s biggest TV moments will be celebrated on Sunday, with Diversity’s controversial BLM-inspired routine on Britain’s Got Talent, which sparked 24,500 complaints to Ofcom, featured in the must-see moment category.

The category, which is voted for by the public, also sees nods to Penelope being revealed as Lady Whistledown in Bridgerton and when Luke Skywalker appeared in the climax of The Mandalorian’s second season.

However it’s Small Axe which leads this year’s nominations with 15 nods.

Beautiful: AJ oozed glamour and looked radiant in the jewel toned ensemble and opted for a natural makeup look

The BBC One anthology film series, directed by Sir Steve McQueen, picked up six TV nominations and nine in the craft categories, including a nod for the Mini-Series gong alongside Normal People, Adult Material and I May Destroy You.

Small Axe – which features five films that tell stories about lives of West Indian immigrants in London from the 1960s to the 1980s – also picked up two Leading Actor nominations with John Boyega and Shaun Parkes both receiving nods.

Letitia Wright, who also starred in the series, is up for the Leading Actress prize, and she will face competition from Billie Piper (I Hate Suzie), Daisy Edgar-Jones (Normal People), Hayley Squires (Adult Material), Jodie Comer (Killing Eve) and Michaela Coel (I May Destroy You).

Elsewhere, I May Destroy You star Paapa Essiedu will go up against John and Shaun for the Leading Actor award, as well as Normal People actor Paul Mescal, Baghdad Central’s Waleed Zuaiter, and The Crown’s Josh O’Connor.

The Crown received 10 nominations – four for TV and six for the craft categories – including a nod for the Drama Series accolade alongside I Hate Suzie, Save Me Too and Gangs of London.

Other nods included This Country, Man Like Mobeen, Inside No. 9, and Ghosts for the Scripted Comedy prize, and siblings and This Country creators Daisy May and Charlie Cooper received nominations for the Female and Male Performance in a Comedy Programme gongs, respectively.

Amy Winehouse’s best friend says he was the ‘only one who knew what she was really going through’

Published

Amy Winehouse’s childhood best friend Tyler James has spoken about the singer’s final days on the tenth anniversary of her death from alcohol poisoning aged 27.

On Monday, Tyler told Nine’s Today show he was the ‘only person who knew what she was really going through’.

‘I lived with Amy most of her adult life and I’m the only person who knows what it was really like to be her,’ he said.

Amy Winehouse’s tragic last days: Singer’s best friend Tyler James has said he’s the ‘only one who knew what she was really going through’ on the 10-year anniversary of her death

‘When I meet Amy, she was 13 and I was 12, and I had this instinct straight away that I needed to look after her.’

Tyler also discussed Amy’s tragic last days and said all ‘she ever wanted was to be sober’.

‘When Amy passed away, I got this feeling that people thought it was inevitable [but] Amy didn’t take drugs for the last three years of her life,’ he said.

Close: On Monday, Tyler told Nine’s Today show ‘I lived with Amy most of her adult life and I’m the only person who knows what it was really like to be her’

‘She would be sober for six weeks and she would relapse for three or four days. Every time she would get back onto being sober again and that’s what she wanted. I don’t think people realise that.’

Tyler’s new book My Amy tells the story of the icon’s troubled life after the pair met at London’s Sylvia Young Theatre School when they were both teenagers.

Amy soared to fame upon the release of Frank in 2003, as she gained both critical and commercial success with the debut as her jazz-inspired vocals won fans all over before her second album Back To Black’s introduction three years later.

‘Amy didn’t take drugs for the last three years of her life’: Tyler also discussed Amy’s tragic last days and said all ‘she ever wanted was to be sober’

In a heartbreaking turn of fate, the London-born icon’s dazzling career was plighted by her demons after she fell into the clutches of drink and drug addiction.

As she ascended higher on the fame ladder she discovered her demons – in drink, drugs and also eating disorders.

In 2011, an inquest gave a verdict of misadventure after finding that she had 416mg of alcohol per decilitre in her blood.

This is more than five times the legal drink-drive limit and enough to cause her to become comatose and depress her respiratory system.

Salma Hayek reveals she stays calm by meditating ‘very often’ with her rescued pet owl Kering

Published

Salma Hayek revealed she finds peace by finding time to meditate with her beloved Southern white-faced owl named Kering, who she rescued just two years ago. 

While the Like A Boss star, 54, originally gifted the bird to her husband François-Henri Pinault for Valentine’s Day, her bond with their family pet has only grown. 

While speaking about her favorite self-care rituals and how to combat stress, she surprised fans by explaining she meditates with her ‘owl very, very often.’  

Unique: Salma Hayek revealed she finds peace by finding time to meditate with her beloved Southern white-faced owl named Kering, who she rescued just two years ago

‘The minute I go deep into meditation, she stays super still,’ she told People in a new interview, released Monday. 

Fans of the actress, who has been very busy promoting her new film Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard, regularly shares photos with Kering sitting on her head or shoulders. 

They also share meals, watch television on Hayek’s iPad, and sleeps in her room when her ‘husband is not in town.’

Funny: While speaking about her favorite self-care rituals and how to combat stress, she surprised fans by explaining she meditates with her ‘owl very, very often’

During a video interview for People’s 2021 Beautiful Issue, Hayek said she named Kering after her husband’s company because ‘their symbol’ is ‘of the owl.’

Even though the owl was a present for her man, she said he told her: ‘Thank you, but I know this is your own present for yourself.’ 

‘Just being in the same room [with her], there’s an energy to it, and it is mesmerizing,’ she added.  

‘The minute I go deep into meditation, she stays super still,’ she told People in a new interview, released Monday

‘Sometimes, when she is really close to me, I can feel her rubbing against me, which is really nice. And I feel so blessed,’ Hayek said. 

The mother-of-one has previously introduced her social media followers to her love of animals with videos of her dogs and two parrots.

The animal lover has never been shy about expressing her fondness for adopting unsheltered pets. 

‘Sometimes, when she is really close to me, I can feel her rubbing against me, which is really nice. And I feel so blessed,’ Hayek said

‘I have five horses, four alpacas, one cat, eight dogs, one hamster, five parrots, two fish, I’m sure I’m forgetting something!’ Salma said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in October 2013.

‘You know this is like the Oscars you forgetting someone. Oh I forgot! I have bunny rabbits, I have turkeys, 20 chickens, same with the rabbits be careful just buy one.’

She added, ‘I don’t know something is in the air at my ranch, animals keep reproducing!’
