Danny Baker gave fans a hilarious running commentary of the BAFTA awards tonight – revealing what it’s really like for celebrity guests.
The broadcasting veteran was among the attendees at the glitzy prizegiving at the Royal Albert Hall.
He decided to tweet his thoughts throughout the event and gave his followers a cheeky insight into what really goes on.
Danny tweeted his anguish over the paid bar – claiming star guests were having to pay £8 for a glass of wine.
He wrote that he was "gasping" for a drink just minutes into the ceremony, joking that even royal guests Prince William and Catherine Duchess of Cambridge were struggled to get beverages.
The radio star tweeted: "For what it’s worth, the bars at BAFTA are not free. £4.50 for bottle of Pils.
"White wine £8 a glass. The box supposedly connecting your payment card is hit and miss. Americans seem furious at all this."
Danny, who was seated next to rocker Alice Cooper, revealed the show started with a video about BAFTAs charity efforts.
However, he was more concerned about his empty glass and people on his table who were sharing the Dancing On Ice results.
He tweeted: "Now being forced to watch a f*****g interminable, deafening, video illustrating the ‘good works’ BAFTA does throughout the ‘undeveloped’ world…
"Alice & I press knees together in horror. Wine gone, gasping, by the way.
"He added: "Ha. Lovely touch. While ‘do gooder’ video of BAFTA global charitable works playing, women by me are passing phone about with Dancing On Ice scores."
The glittering gala is taking place at the the Royal Albert Hall in London and Joanna Lumley is hosting for the second year running.
Olivia Colman is tipped to win best actress for her role in The Favourite and Rami Malek is favourite to win best actor for his part in Bohemian Rhapsody.
The coveted best film prize will be a fierce fight between BlacKkKlansman, The Favourite, Green Book, Roma, and A Star Is Born.
The Favourite led the full list of nominees with 12 nods in various categories.
Olivia plays Queen Anne in the movie, and the 18th century monarch’s distant relative Prince William is expected to attend with his wife Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.
The Favourite is also hotly tipped for success at the upcoming Oscars and tonight’s prizegiving is expected to be a good indicator of who will triumph at Hollywood’s biggest night.
