“Ava was making herself a pretend cup of tea,” added Myleene. “I was just standing there thinking we’re just trashing Hans Zimmer’s dressing room, but he was so sweet about it but I think he was really happy to get rid of us!”
Myleene, who presented the night’s awards, turned heads on the red carpet in a sheer dress by Rafael Lopez.
“The classical world is way more rock and roll than any other I can think of,” said Myleene. “Because they’ve all been locked away for hours in practise rooms with orchestra touring the world so they want to let loose for the night.”
Birthday girl and actress Samantha Barks also played a key role in the evening’s proceedings, presenting the award for International Artist of the Year and taking to the stage with English tenor, Alfie Boe.

“I performed here two years ago with Les Misérables and so to be singing with him again is really special.”
