This will be followed up with roasted pink Creedy Carver duck breast, with braised red cabbage, roasted pear, duck fat carrot and a croustillant of confit duck leg.

For those having the vegan option, they will enjoy an open tart of spring greens and leeks, caramelised cider and onion puree, roasted oyster mushroom, celeriac poached in kombu and a parsley relish.

Guests with a sweet tooth are in for a treat as they will be served a decadent dessert – an apple tart. This will consist of compressed apple, caramelised puff pastry, tonka cremeux, gingerbread crumbs and green apple sorbet. Delish! The BAFTA menu was first previewed at the S.Pellegrino x BAFTA dinner.

Meanwhile, stars including Lady Gaga, Leonardo DiCaprio and Ariana DeBose are up for some of the most coveted gongs.

However, it seems that it could be a big night for homegrown talent as many British films and actors have done well to receive plenty of nods this year; for instance, Benedict Cumberbatch and Stephen Graham are both up for the Leading Actor, and Joanna Scanlan and up-and-coming star Emelia Jones are vying for Leading Actress.

The ceremony will be hosted by Australian actress and comedian Rebel Wilson and will be broadcast on BBC One and BBC iPlayer from 7pm on Sunday 13 March.
