Monday night’s Attitude Awards in association with Virgin Holidays saw some of the biggest names pack out London’s 8 Northumberland Avenue to celebrate the great and good of the LGBT+ community and its allies.

Supporting the Elton John AIDS Foundation for a fifth year, our annual awards are dedicated to honouring those who inspire and make change, make LGBT lives easier, influence and entertain, or quite simply give us life.

Host Alan Cumming was on hand to keep to stars in line throughout a night of surprises which included two Spice Girls, five Olympic gold medallists, 15 awards, and one very special video message from the one and only Adele, who scooped Attitude’s Album of the Year Award for her mammoth record 25.

Check out all the red carpet action below:
