Londoner Eddie Redmayne will take to the red carpet tonight in Leicester Square for the premiere of his latest film The Theory of Everything.

The 32 year old actor plays a young Stephen Hawking studying at Cambridge University before he was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease.

The film documents his relationship with his first wife Jane Hawking who he met while studying for his PhD in the 1960s.

The film will be in UK cinemas from the New Year.
