It had been claimed that they had called time on their three-year-relationship at the start of February.

But it appeared things were very much back on with Idris Elba and Naiyana Garth – the mother of his 23-month-old son Winston – as they put on a loved-up display at the British Academy Television Awards on Sunday evening.


Idris, 43, was seen walking the red carpet at London’s Royal Festival Hall with his arm around the 28-year-old make-up artist as they paired made their first public appearance together this year.

Idris looked every inch the dapper gentleman in a classic black tuxedo while he teamed with a black bow tie and a white pocket scarf.


The lead actor nominee couldn’t hide his joy at having the beautiful Naiyana by his side as he waited to see if he would bag one of the night’s biggest awards.

Naiyana looked stunning in plunging navy gown which featured gold detailing and sheer sleeves.

Her ombre locks were styled into like waves and she kept her make-up fresh and simple on the night.
