Pete Bennett was spotted in public in a rare appearance Tuesday night.
The 39-year-old actor, who rarely appears these days, attended the red carpet event with co-star Catherine Tate for The Nan Movie, which they both co-star, on Tuesday night.
He looked like he was meeting a whale of a time as he posed next to Doctor Who’s Catherine, who plays Joannie Taylor.
Pete, who plays Bradley in the film, showed off his stylish style by wearing sequined pants and a headband for the occasion.

Pete shot to fame on Big Brother 14 years ago, leaving with a £100,000 prize fund, which he later admitted was ‘a bailiff, tax officer, drugs’.
He went down a dark hole, but turned his life around by taking on a role in the upcoming film.
During an appearance on The Jeremy Kyle Show in 2015, he spoke about the downsides of fame and what happened after his resounding win.
Pete explained: “The work ran out pretty quickly, no one could touch me with the barge because I did with Big Brother. I lost everything.
“Things didn’t go as planned. I had all that money and I didn’t know what to do with it. I put it in the wrong things. I became homeless after having it. lots of money, Easy to come, easy to go Fame has put me on a path I don’t want to go, I don’t like it.
“I got into drugs 15 years ago, I’ve always been a party guy, I’m addicted to ketamine. I’ve sought the right help to quit.”
Thankfully, things turned for the better for Pete as he was set to star in the movie.
Talking about his new role, Pete told The Sun: “I’m like a man, he’s going to get this role. I think I’d better take it to the next level.”
“I went in there and called Catherine Tate with a lot of swear words, and she loved it.
“I called her all the names under the sun. And then I got a part.”
