Typically, the show is attended by industry professionals only, but this year a limited number of tickets are also being made available to the public for £32.50, allowing attendees to walk the red carpet and enjoy the ceremony in the company of top stars.

Celebrity guests in recent years include the likes of Sir Bruce Forsyth, Dame Judi Dench, Rowan Atkinson, Ricky Gervais, Jonathan Ross, Simon Pegg, Stephen Fry and Sir Michael Caine, among many others.

People booking a luxury London hotel break to coincide with the awards can receive a choice of perks by taking advantage of the Get More From Your Stay offer at The 41 Hotel.

Options include a bottle of Laurent Perrier on arrival, a Champagne afternoon tea for two, a romantic turndown or a late 18:00 checkout time.
