TAYLOR Swift made an unexpected appearance at the Bafta after parties on Sunday night — slipping in unnoticed to support British actor boyfriend Joe Alwyn.
The US superstar told The Sun she was thrilled to be at the event supporting Joe, whose film The Favourite won seven gongs, saying the pair were having a great night after being spotted cosying up at the official dinner for nominees.

Joe, 27, and Taylor, 29, who have kept their two year romance under wraps throughout the relationship, shared hugs and kisses in full view of fellow guests before heading to nearby Annabel’s nightclub for a bash thrown by fashion bible Vogue.
An onlooker said: “Taylor and Joe have obviously decided they’re happy to take things public now – they were all over each other kissing and cuddling and having a lovely evening.
“When they left hand in hand later they had no concerns at all about who saw them.”
But new lovers Liam Payne, 25, and Naomi Campbell, 48, went to extreme lengths to avoid being snapped together despite deliberately heading to the same party – where they found a quiet corner to spend time alone.
The unlikely couple spent the evening together hidden away from prying eyes and later left the bash five minutes apart, with sources saying they quickly hooked up again once away from the spotlight.
Others stars partying at the event included Eddie Redmayne, Eleanor Tomlinson, Claire Foy and Kate Moss.

Telly fans turn it offTHE Baftas TV audience plummeted by 1.6 million viewers during the Sunday evening show, amid complaints the ceremony was “too dull”.Its ratings peaked at 4.1 million — but by the end of the BBC One transmission, only 2.5 million were watching.
This compared to 4.6 million tuning in to watch the last year’s star-studded ceremony, also hosted by Joanna Lumley.
The number of viewers for the Baftas has fallen by two million in six years, with droves calling this year’s show “boring”.
