Comedian Eddie, 60, added a few inches to her stature by opting for a pair of bright orange heels.

She went for a glamorous look with her make-up, opting for a bold lip to match the colour of her attire, while wearing a pair of sunglasses on top of her head, nestled into her bleach blonde hair.

The pair were joined by a number of stars, including It’s A Sin actor Nathaniel Curtis who wore a white short sleeved shirt with grey three-quarter length trousers, while Homeland star David Harewood wore a smart sky blue suit and white T-shirt.

It comes after Ncuti was announced as the new star of Doctor Who in May.

The actor – who is best-known for starring in the Netflix series Sex Education – will replace Jodie Whittaker as the Doctor, and he said he’s ‘deeply honoured’ to have been handed the opportunity.

Ncuti – who will become the first black actor to play the role full-time – said: ‘There aren’t quite the words to describe how I’m feeling. A mix of deeply honoured, beyond excited and of course a little bit scared.

‘This role and show means so much to so many around the world, including myself, and each one of my incredibly talented predecessors has handled that unique responsibility and privilege with the utmost care. I will endeavour my utmost to do the same.’

Ncuti is particularly looking forward to working with Russell T Davies, who is returning as showrunner of Doctor Who in 2023.

He explained: ‘Russell T Davies is almost as iconic as the Doctor himself and being able to work with him is a dream come true. His writing is dynamic, exciting, incredibly intelligent and fizzing with danger. An actor’s metaphorical playground.

‘The entire team have been so welcoming and truly give their hearts to the show. And so as much as it’s daunting, I’m aware I’m joining a really supportive family.

‘Unlike the Doctor, I may only have one heart but I am giving it all to this show.’
