Bridgerston actor Rege-Jean Page and Line Of Duty star Adrian Dunbar led the winners at the 2021 GQ Men Of The Year Awards at the Tate Modern on Wednesday.

The breakthrough star, 31, looked smart in a three-piece green suit when he received his gong, following rave reviews from viewers and critics for his role as the Duke of Hastings in the alternative period drama.

Meanwhile, Ted Hastings actor Adrian, 63, was awarded TV Performance of the Year after taking the nation by storm on the sixth series of the BBC police drama earlier this year.

After his win, Rege-Jean said he loved being able to portray a person of high status as a black man.

Speaking to GQ magazine about his role in the drama, he said: “I think it’s becoming very clear who was previously banned from the game. It just got vaguely ridiculous that it was such an issue before. You know, ‘How will this work?’ Um, we do the acting!’

And of his scenes on horseback, he added: ‘Sitting on a horse literally puts people in a position of aspiration, power, possibility and freedom of choice that they were not given before. That’s what’s ridiculous.

Mother of God!  Meanwhile, Ted Hastings actor Adrian, 63, was awarded TV Performance of the Year after conquering the nation on the sixth series of the BBC police drama earlier this year.

That we are not creative enough in the creative industry – that is the failure. But once you start doing that? It’s like, ‘This is so easy!’ Yes, it is, so keep doing that.’

Rege-Jean won’t be returning to ‘Bridgerton’ for season two, but has denied rumors that he’s been kicked out of production.

He insisted, “No, I left respectfully. I didn’t want to put them in an awkward situation where they had to kick me out.”
