London. 2 February 2009. Fearne Cotton has signed up with Orange to present an exclusive celebrity red carpet programme at the Orange British Academy Film Awards in 2009.

The BAFTA Film Awards are the most star-studded event in the British film calendar. Film fans and fashionistas alike can catch all of Fearne's interviews only at orange.co.uk/bafta from 9.30am on Monday 9 February.

Keira Knightley, Sienna Miller, Kevin Spacey and Ricky Gervais were just a few of the A-list names who appeared on last year's programme. The 2009 awards ceremony is likely to attract an equally high profile list of talent from nominated films which include The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Slumdog Millionaire, Frost/Nixon, The Reader and Milk.

Fearne Cotton commented: "I'm really looking forward to hosting the Orange Red Carpet programme this year. Fans of fashion know there's nothing quite like a red carpet in awards season for style spotting! The Orange British Academy Film Awards will be the ultimate place to see the world's biggest film stars and I can't wait to be in the thick of it."

Ian Smith, Head of Partnerships at Orange, said: "We're delighted to be able to bring film fans closer to the action at the Orange British Academy Film Awards. Fearne Cotton will bring even more style to a glamorous night, and will no doubt charm all of the stars into giving us some brilliant and unique interviews for the Orange Red Carpet programme."
