Stars Descend on London for 2014 BAFTAs

The 2014 BAFTAs took place in London on Sunday, with the usual mix of A-list celebs, surprise winners, awkward speeches and deserved recognition.

12 Years a Slave took home best film and male lead Chiwetel Ejiofor claimed best actor, and yet there was still the sense that the film was a little hard done by.

One of Britain's biggest sports stars Tom Daley revealed yesterday that he is in a relationship with a man. In a YouTube video, the London 2012 bronze medallist said: "In spring this year my life changed massively when I met someone, and they make me feel so happy, so safe and everything just feels great.
