Grace Bristo, 18, of Foxglove Close, Eaton Ford, joined the fans lining the red carpet and managed to take selfies with names such as Tom Hiddleston - who played Loki in The Avengers - and Unbroken actor Jack O’Connell.

She was joined for the event on Sunday (February 8) by her friend and fellow student at Huntingdonshire Regional College, Freya Hoster, 18, and their tutor Mark Woods-Nunn.

They had the chance to attend as Mr Woods-Nunn usually goes along to the event and he picked students’ names out of a hat to accompany him. Grace, who is in the second year of a BTEC Extended Diploma Photography course and also works at Waitrose in St Neots, hopes to go on to take photos for advertisements to raise awareness of important issues.

She said: “I was on the second row but I’m quite tall so I shouted to them and said ‘can I have a photo?’.
