Billie Piper, Benedict Cumberbatch and Damian Lewis were among the stars turning heads at a glitzy theatre gala in London.

Former Doctor Who actress Billie looked glam in a sophisticated beaded cream dress when she stepped out at the Bright Young Things gala, as she sipped a glass of wine and chatted to other actors.

The Daily Mail reported that Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch wore a grey suit to the event - which was hosted by the Young Patrons of the National Theatre in support of emerging artists - while Homeland actor Damian looked more casual in jeans and a grey shirt.

He was at the bash with his wife Helen McCrory, who looked elegant in a black dress and strappy sandals.

Kit Harington, Gemma Chan, Luke Treadaway, Andrew Scott and Antonia Thomas were also at the bash at the National Theatre.
