Dame Emma, who also appeared in the wizarding franchise, opted for a blue suit on the night, completing the look with a matching blue top and white shoes.

Dermot O’Leary was another star who got the suit memo, and was pictured in a black tuxedo beside wife Dee Koppang, while Clara Amfo wowed in a white patterned blazer and trouser combo.

‘The actions we choose or choose not to take in the next 10 years will determine the fate of the planet for the next thousand.

‘A decade doesn’t seem long, but humankind has an outstanding record of being able to solve the unsolvable.

‘Many of the answers are already out there… but we need everyone – from all parts of society – to raise their ambition and unite in repairing our planet.

‘The future is ours to determine. And if we set our minds to it, nothing is impossible.’

The Earthshot Prize: Repairing Out Planet will air tonight at 8pm on BBC One.
