Keira Knightley and Benedict Cumberbatch have been reunited at a pre-Bafta party in London.

The Imitation Game co-stars are both nominated for Bafta and Oscar awards for their performances as code-breakers Joan Clarke and Alan Turing.

They are also both set to be first-time parents, with Keira expecting her first child with musician husband James Righton, while Benedict's fiancee Sophie Hunter is pregnant.

Keira kept her baby bump under wraps with a flowing floral-print Chanel dress, which she teamed with metallic silver heels.

The private reception at ME hotel, ahead of the Baftas on Sunday (February 8), was hosted by the Newport Beach Film Festival to award The Imitation Game with two of the festival's highest honours: best picture and best ensemble cast.
