BAFTA TV Awards 2021: Oti Mabuse puts on a VERY leggy display in a plunging white gown

She’s long been known for stunning with her red carpet looks.

And Oti Mabuse didn’t disappoint with her look for the 2021 British Academy Television Awards on Sunday as she attended the ceremony at London’s Television Centre in a revealing white gown.

The Strictly Come Dancing pro, 30, flaunted her endless pins in a plunging white gown with a thigh-high split, but nearly suffered a wardrobe malfunction as a gust of wind sent her skirt flying into the air.

Oti was a vision in her white strapless gown with a plunging bustier front, and flowed into a floor-length skirt.

Offering a glimpse of her toned pins, the dancer’s dress also featured a thigh-high split, with Oti adding extra height to her look with metallic silver heels. 

Oti, who will reunite with Bill Bailey to present an award at this year’s ceremony, styled her ombre bob into loose curls after gracing the red carpet in her Grecian-inspired gown.

The star-studded evening, hosted by Richard Ayoade, has a collection of guest presenters including Lydia, who will co-present a gong with co-star Olly, who played the lead role of AIDS-stricken Ritchie Tozer.

Olly will also open the ceremony with a dazzling performance of his new track Starstruck.

Line Of Duty’s Adrian Dunbar, Strictly winners Bill Bailey and Oti Mabuse, and Daisy May Cooper are all set to present.

Tom Allen and AJ Odudu, meanwhile, are presenting the Virgin Media BAFTAs: Back to the Red Carpet show. 

It was revealed earlier this week the awards show is set to beam celebrities who can’t attend Sunday’s event in person onto the red carpet as holograms.  

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

Other guest presenters – Catherine O’Hara, Jon Snow, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Jamie Demetriou, Tommy Jessop, Bob Mortimer and Paul Whitehouse – will all appear via video call during the ceremony.

Covid 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.

In an attempt to ensure everyone can access the awards, Virgin Media will beam them onto the red carpet through the latest hologram technology.  

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

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.
