New film Paddington will have its world premiere in the capital this afternoon, after it was controversially given a PG rating for sexual references and dangerous behavior.

Stars will be at the Odeon Leicester Square for the first showing of the movie, which follows the comic misadventures of Paddington, who travels to London in search of a home.

Ben Whishaw voices the Peruvian bear in the live-action film, which also stars Hugh Bonneville, Peter Capaldi, Julie Walters and Nicole Kidman.

ITV London will be at the premiere. Don't miss Helen Plint's report at 6.30pm on ITV1.
