Rami Malek's Very Tight Trousers Steal The Show At The BAFTAs

Rami Malek seemed to bring his portrayal of Freddie Mercury from the big screen to the red carpet after he was spotted in a particularly tight pair of white trousers that showed off more than intended.

The 37-year-old star of the Queen biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, really rocked the BAFTAs last night, taking home the honour of 'Best Actor' for his performance.

And even with all his success, he managed to squeeze in a picture with the 'Best Actress' winner Olivia Colman - perhaps better than he squeezed into his pants.

But, even with them both smiling brightly - trophies in hand - the eye is drawn further down to image to Malek's unmistakable bulge.

It looks as though the award-winning actor really did draw inspiration from the late Queen frontman, who was often seen in tight-fitting costumes for his flamboyant onstage persona.

Tight trousers or not, nothing was going to stop the actor from getting another award for his performance of Mercury.

He scooped two awards in the evening, one prize for 'Best Actor' and the other for 'Best Sound'.

As he collected the award he said: "I still cannot believe that I'm included with this group of actors. It's quite difficult entering your [British] world with this role, as an outsider. It's not lost on me how sacred your musical heritage is."

He went on to talk about his love for London he developed during the film and, of course, thanked Freddie Mercury.

"Shooting here was honestly one of the best things I've done in my life," he said. "I got to go from Abbey Road Studios, Air Studios and see all of London and fall in love with it, to the point where I am looking for a place to live here."

To Mercury he said: "This is for and because of you, gorgeous."

Now he has the Oscars to face with Bohemian Rhapsody up for five awards, and Malek himself up for 'Best Actor' yet again.

Can he do it? It would certainly be a pretty impressive hat-trick after his Golden Globes win.
