The stars of multi-Bafta award-nominated series It’s A Sin reunited on the red carpet of the nominees’ party in London on Thursday evening.
Lydia West, Callum Scott Howells and Omari Douglas appeared alongside other famous faces from the world of British TV, including Rose Ayling-Ellis and Steph McGovern.
The hard-hitting drama series, written by Queer As Folk and Doctor Who screenwriter Russell T Davies, is in the running for 11 gongs at this year’s awards.
Howells, Douglas and fellow cast member David Carlyle, who will go head to head in the best supporting actor category, appeared side by side at the event at the Sea Containers hotel on London’s Southbank.
Howells wore a checked blazer and with matching flared trousers over an argyle style sweater vest.

Neither Alexander nor Davies were pictured at the event.
