David Beckham is among the presenters confirmed for the BAFTA Awards.

The former footballer will take to the stage at the star-studded EE British Academy Film Awards (BAFTAs) ceremony at London's Royal Opera House on Sunday (08.02.15) to hand out an accolade, and he will be joined by the likes of Henry Cavill, Tom Hiddleston and Cuba Gooding Jr. to present a prize.

The 39-year-old star will also be in good company as fellow Brits including Julie Walters, Holliday Grainger, Mark Strong and Martin Freeman will also attend the event.

Brunette beauty Hayley Atwell and Chris Evans - who she shared a smooch with in 'Captain America' - will be in attendance as well as 'Game of Thrones' beauty Natalie Dormer, 'The Hunger Games' hunk Sam Claflin and Attack the Block's John Boyega.

What's more, nominees who will attended the ceremony include Benedict Cumberbatch and Eddie Redmayne, who will do battle in the Best Actor category, as well as Michael Keaton and Ralph Fiennes, who may not need to practice a speech if the latest odds are anything to go by.

Eddie is odds of 1/10 with bookmaker William Hill to win the big individual prize of the night and leave Michael (5/1), Benedict (14/1), Jake Gyllenhaal (66/1) and Ralph (66/1) empty-handed.

Eddie's leading lady in 'The Theory of Everything', Felicity Jones, who has received a nod for Best Actress, will also be in attendance as well as Julianne Moore, Amy Adams and Rosamund Pike, who are up for the category.

Julianne is strong 1/20 favourite to win the accolade while J.K Simmons - who will also be at the ceremony - is 1/16 to take home the Best Supporting Actor.

Patricia Arquette will be hoping her 1/20 odds are a good omen when she heads to the Royal Opera House on Sunday looking to go home with the Best Supporting Actress award.

'Boyhood' is hotly tipped at 1/4 to win the big prize, Best Film, and while Eddie looks set to go home the happier in the Best Actor category, Benedict may still get his hands on a BAFTA as 'The Imitation Game' is favourite to win Best British Film followed by 'The Theory of Everything'.

Stephen Fry is to host the event which will be broadcast to UK viewers on BBC One and BBC One HD at 21:00 on Sunday.
