Erivo in tights at Harry's premiere

Actress Cynthia Erivo pulled on a pair of black tights for the premiere of the Harry Hill Movie at the Vue Cinema in Leicester Square, London on Thursday night.

She combined the black tights with a pair of black heels and a shimmering dark blue dress.

Erivo, 26, has received notable acclaim for her performance in John Doyle's stage adaptation of Alice Walker's Pulitzer Prize winning novel, The Color Purple.

The Londoner is also scheduled to appear in Harry Hill's satirical X-Factor inspired musical I Can't Sing! which is due to hit the London Palldium in February.

Hill appeared on the red carpet to celebrate the opening of his eponymous film and was joined by other stars of the comedy, including Julie Walters, Sheridan Smith and Johnny Vegas, who voices Harry's pet hamster, Abu.

The farcical comedy follows Hill, playing an extrapolation of himself, and his Nan, played by Walters, as they set off on a road trip to Blackpool, pursued by Hill's evil twin Otto (Matt Lucas) and a lunatic vet named Ed (Simon Bird).

The film is set to hit UK cinemas on Friday.
