Megan Barton Hanson left  little to the imaginationas she attended the 76th EE British Academy Film Awards at the Royal Festival Hall in London on Sunday.

The former Love Island star, 28, showed off her incredible figure in a bold red dress, featuring a thigh-high split on one side.

The racy number featured a shoulder cut-out and even flashed her bottom as she made her way down the red carpet.

She added inches to her gorgeous frame in a pair of silver sparkly heels and accessorised with a selection of gold bracelets.

The beauty tied up her blonde tresses into an elegant bun, leaving strands falling down either side of her face.

Going all out for the occasion, Megan sported a full-glam makeup look, including a smokey eye and daring red lip. 

The biggest night ,n British film returned on Sunday evening with actor Richard E. Grant taking the helm to present the 76th EE British Academy Film Awards.

Held at the Royal Festival Hall, Richard, 65, was joined by Alison Hammond to host the star-studded ceremony, while film critic Ali Plum was on the red carpet with vick Hope. 

Austin Butler was awarded Best Actor at the awards, beating out favourite Colin Farrell in a shock upset.

The actor fought back tears as he paid tribute to the Presley family while accepting the honour, after portraying the late King Of Rock in the Baz Lurhmann biopic.

Thanking all of the crew and team he worked with on the film, Austin admitted he was 'just trying to take it all in,' as he fought back tears while accepting the honour. 

'This means the world to me,' Butler told the ceremony, still using the Elvis drawl that he learned for Baz Luhrmann's movie.

He also paid tribute to the Presley family who offered insight into Elvis' life for the biopic, adding he 'hopes he made them proud.'


Cate Blanchett was also awarded Best Leading Actress for her performance in the biopic Tar, the film's only big win of the night.

Tearfully, she accepted the gong as she thanked her mother and director Todd Field, adding that Blanchett also said that 2022 had been an 'extraordinary year for women'.

She added that it had broken down that women's experience is not 'monolithic', and that her role as Lydia Tar 'was a dangerous and career-ending potential undertaking'.

Netflix's German war epic All Quiet On The Western Front was the big winner of the night with a total of seven gongs, including Best Film, while The Banshees of Inisherin was close behind with five, including Best British Film and Best Supporting Actor and Actress respectively. 


The film, which is based on the 1929 novel of the same name by Erich Maria Remarque, equals Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon (2001) as the film which is not spoken in the English language with the most nominations in BAFTA’s history.

Directed by Edward Berger, it stars Felix Kammerer, Albrecht Schuch, Daniel Brühl, Sebastian Hülk, Aaron Hilmer, Edin Hasanovic and Devid Striesow.

During his opening monologue, Richard referenced Will Smith's infamous slap at last year's Oscars, telling audiences that 'on my watch no one gets slapped tonight'.

Smith stormed onto the stage during the 94th annual Academy Awards in March and slapped presenter Chris Rock after the comedian made a joke about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith.

The actor, who went on to win the coveted best actor Oscar moments later, was later banned from all Academy events for the next 10 years and resigned from the organisation.

Speaking at the Baftas, Grant said that the only slaps being received on Sunday would be 'on the back'.

'What a great year to be hosting the Baftas,' he said.

'In 2022, movie audiences were well and truly back and there has never been a better time to go to the cinema until right now.'

He added: 'Well, not right now, I'm trying my best and nobody on my watch gets slapped tonight... except on the back.'

As the ceremony got underway, Carey Mulligan was incorrectly announced as the winner of the Supporting Actress award after a translation gaffe while deaf actor Troy Kotsur was presenting.

Oscar-winner Kotsur was delivering the announcement by sign language before a miscommunication resulted in Mulligan's name being called for her performance in She Said.

The announcer quickly corrected the call and announced The Banshees Of Inisherin star Kerry Condon as the winner.

Barry Keoghan won Supporting Actor for The Banshees Of Inisherin, and the 30-year-old Irish actor said he 'should have planned this, really' before thanking his co-stars and Ireland.
