BRIT Awards 2021: Sheridan Smith puts on a leggy display in a thigh-skimming velvet mini dress

She became a mum for the first time when she welcomed her son Billy with her fiancé Jamie a year ago. 

And Sheridan Smith looked flawless as she made her return to the red carpet alongside other famous faces at the Brit Awards on Tuesday night.  

The actress, 39, flaunted her enviable figure in a thigh-skimming black velvet mini dress and a pair of strappy stilettos. 

Wow! Sheridan Smith looked flawless as she made her return to the red carpet in a thigh-skimming black velvet mini dress at the Brit Awards on Tuesday night

Taking time off from her mum duties, Sheridan caught up with old pals before entering the event. 

Rushing to embrace the singer Rag’n’Bone Man, 36, in her black ankle-strap stilettos, the pair embraced as the cameras flashed.  

The Human hitmaker towered over the actress as they posed together at the A-list event. 

Looking effortlessly cool in a pair of hexagonal sunglasses and a pair of Dr Martens, the musician flashed his pearly whites for the reunion snap. 

Donning a stylish emerald and navy checked coat, Rag’n’Bone Man beamed ahead of his live performance at the awards.

Laughing and joking, the actress looked upbeat as she also posed with the actor and style icon Billy Porter, 51. 

As expected, the American Horror Story star had pulled out all the stops for his red carpet look as he donned high-heeled boots and an intricate lace and silk dress. 

Billy looked the vision of high class glamour as he smiled in a large black fascinator and toted a diamond encrusted white box bag.

Sheridan kept things classy with her long-sleeved LBD and accentuated her assets with a cleavage-baring cut out detail. 

She beamed as she worked her angles for the camera in the chic dress that made the most of her endless legs. 

The award-winning actress styled her long blonde tresses in a stylish high ponytail with her curtain fringe falling flatteringly around her face. 

Going full glam for the high profile award ceremony, Sheridan looked flawless in a full face of makeup, including lashings of mascara and a deep golden tan.

The Brit Awards mark the first time that Sheridan has attended a red carpet event since the arrival of her son, Billy, last May. 

The mother-of-one celebrated her son’s first birthday earlier this month and said that motherhood had made her ‘at peace with everything’.  

Having been known for erratic behaviour, anxiety and self-doubt, the Two Pints of Lager actress admitted: ‘I don’t think I’ve ever felt like this before.

‘Regardless of anything going on in my career I’ve always felt insecure, worried about what people thought of me. And now I feel happy. That is a novelty.

‘I never knew I would be this person – a mum. Things used to seem so complicated, and now suddenly everything is so simple. I love Billy so much. I hold him and he’s looking at me and I know he loves me back and he needs me.

‘I’ve been looking for this all my life. I’ve looked in the wrong places – in nightclubs, going out drinking, pushing myself with work. Now in this little baby I’ve found that I’m at peace with everything.’

Arriving at the ceremony solo in a large grey Audi, the actresses’ fiancé Jamie Horn appeared to have stayed home to look after Billy for the night. 

The 2021 Brit Awards, hosted by Jack Whitehall, will mark the first major indoor music event in over a year as bosses released 2,500 free tickets to key workers.

The Brit Awards are taking place in front of a live audience of 4,000 people at London’s The O2 six days before the next phase of lockdown lifts.

The ceremony, which will be broadcast live on ITV, will celebrate the return to live music and nominee Dua Lipa has promised those attending that it will ‘be a night to remember’.

The indoor ceremony and live show will form part of the Government’s scientific Events Research Programme. 

It will use enhanced testing approaches to examine how events can take place without the need for social distancing after all restrictions are lifted on June 21.

Working closely with the Government to adhere to safety guidelines, this means The BRITs, will be the first live music show at The O2 in over a year, with 4,000 tickets being up for grabs- just one fifth of the venue’s 20,000 capacity.

The BRITs will play an important role in paving the way for the return of live music at scale as the UK emerges from the past year’s restrictions.

Audience members will not be socially distanced or required to wear face coverings in the arena, but they will be required to follow existing Government guidance when travelling to the venue and adhere to rules set out by the event organisers.

Among the rules, attendees must have proof of a negative lateral flow test result to enter the venue.

How are the BRIT Awards going ahead during the Covid pandemic?

The 2021 BRIT Awards mark the first live music event in the UK since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The indoor ceremony and live show will form part of the Government’s scientific Events Research Programme.

Enhanced testing approaches will examine how events can take place without the need for social distancing after all restrictions are lifted on June 21.  

4,000 tickets were made available for the live ceremony, just one fifth of the venue’s 20,000 capacity, with 2,500 of those being given to key workers. 

The BRITs will play an important role in paving the way for the return of live music at scale as the UK emerges from the past year’s restrictions. 

Audience members will not be socially distanced or required to wear face coverings once seated inside the arena, though they will be required in communal areas such as the toilet or main concourse.

All attendees will be allowed to purchase alcohol and concessions once inside the O2 Arena.

Attendees will also be required to follow existing Government guidance when travelling to the venue and adhere to rules set out by the event organisers.

Among the rules, attendees must have proof of a negative lateral flow test result to enter the venue, and said test must be taken at an asymptomatic testing site within 36 hours of the ceremony.

Upon arrival at the venue, all attendess will be asked to take a PCR test, and will then take another test five days after the ceremony 

It’s hoped this will gather further evidence on the safety of indoor settings, reduced social distancing and the removal of non-pharmaceutical interventions like face coverings.

As part of the wider scientific research on the trial events, attendees will also be asked to take a test after the event to gather further evidence on the safety of indoor settings, reduced social distancing and the removal of non-pharmaceutical interventions like face coverings.

The show is set to award Taylor Swift – who will make history as the first ever female to be given BRITs Global Icon Award at the ceremony.

The 11-time Grammy Award winner, 31, will join former winners Elton John, Robbie Williams and David Bowie in being given with the award in recognition of her impact on music across the world and incredible repertoire and achievements to date.

In numbers provided by Official Charts Company, Taylor is the UK’s biggest selling artist of the year to date in 2021 and has sold over 114m albums worldwide with total global audio + video streams reaching 78b.
