Les Miserables star Eddie Redmayne's big night out at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) awards turned into a disaster after he was struck down with food poisoning.

The model-turned-actor attended the London event in support of the musical, which was up for Best Film and Outstanding British Film, and his co-stars Hugh Jackman and Anna Hathaway, who were nominated in the acting categories.

He told reporters that he felt ill as he walked the red carpet, and he was forced to pull out of presenting the Original Screenplay award with Lincoln star Sally Field after he began vomiting backstage.

After Hathaway won the Best Supporting Actress BAFTA for her role in the film, she passed on her best wishes to the Brit, telling the audience, "Oh God, Eddie, feel better. I'd be holding your hair back but, you know... food poisoning is just the worst."
