Oscar hopefuls Margot Robbie and Allison Janney enticed ice dancing fans away from watching the drama of the Winter Olympics on the small screen at the UK premiere of I, Tonya.

The darkly comic biopic focuses on disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding.

Robbie stars as Harding – who was banned from professional skating following the infamous attack on fellow Olympic competitor Nancy Kerrigan – and is nominated for best actress.

West Wing actress Janney, who plays her violent mother LaVona Golden, is nominated in the supporting actress category.
