Richard Madden, the star of the hugely popular BBC series Bodyguard, stepped out on Wednesday night for the GQ Men of The Year Awards. Suited and booted in a Versace suit (complete with a dickie bow tie) and a pair of Louis Vuitton shoes, he showed off his sartorial skills to maximum effect - he looked gorgeous!

Taking to the stage, the royal joked that he now had something to "throw at the burglar." He also revealed that he thought GQ had made a mistake choosing him, joking: "First of all I really wanted to apologise for being wrongly dressed. I feared none of you would be able to compete with my incredibly snazzy dinner jacket.

"When I was first told of GQ magazine's wish to give me a Man Of The Year award I felt sure it must have been some kind of mistake.

I thought it must be some sort of ill-deserved fashion award. Particularly as in fashion terms I'm like a stopped clock. In other words I'm fashionable once every 25 years."

He said he then learned it was for philanthropy, adding: "It really is incredibly kind of you and GQ magazine to do this."
