BBC News has been criticised for its “disgusting” red carpet interview with Andrew Scott at the BAFTAs.

All of Us Strangers, which received six nominations across the awards ceremony. Ultimately, the queer fantasy/romance was snubbed from the winners’ list on the night, while Scott was also missed out from the Best Actor category nominations

However, when the actor who said he “feels lucky” to have been born gay was approached by BBC reporter Colin Paterson for an interview, Scott appeared to be left visibly uncomfortable. In the end, he had to walk away after being asked some inappropriate interview questions.

Paterson began the interview by asking if Scott was familiar with fellow Irish actor Barry Keoghan. “I know Barry, yeah,” Scott responded. 

The interviewer then proceeded to ask what Scott’s reaction was to the end scene in Keoghan’s BAFTA-nominated movie Saltburn, which sees the actor dancing around the manor house naked to Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s Murder on the Dancefloor.
