The stream of men, including Piers Morgan, John Boyega and Paul Mescal, commanded attention in tailored black suits, while Michaela Coel wore a two-piece outfit and James Bond star Lashana Lynch wore a lilac dress.

In it’s 23rd year, the GQ Men of the Year Awards celebrates the most deserving men and women in their respective fields, from acting to innovation.

Ahead of the awards host Jack Whitehall joked about the online ceremony – and the stars who were “banned” from entering.

On the GQ Instagram page, he joked: “We may not have any guests at this year’s awards, but we are trying to run everything as we normally would. Security is always on hand to make sure that no one too low rent sneaks in to the awards. The black list of banned celebrities is pretty extensive.”

Strolling past images of Donald Trump, Joey Essex and Matt Hancock, he added: “You won’t be seeing any reality TV stars in here this evening.

“And we certainly don’t want a repeat of that terrible incident in 2018 when the guys from the Sketchers advert accidentally slipped through the net.”
