Hannah Waddingham received an 'written apology' over 'leg' incident

Ted Lasso star Hannah Waddingham has revealed that she's received a written apology after calling out a paparazzi photographer during the Olivier Awards red carpet.

Appearing on tonight's (April 17) episode of The One Show, Waddingham was asked by host Alex Jones how she was feeling after the incident.

Thanking Jones for checking in on how she was doing, the actor replied: "I'm good. I called out what needed to be absolutely necessary to be called out, and I've received a written apology."

The actor went on to explain that now she'd received an apology from the photographer, she didn't want to allow too much focus on the incident or let it overshadow the "glorious" night.

"Now I'm so ready to move on," she continued. "And I'm not having it overshadow what was the most, I think, even more than last year, the most glorious, joyful, positive night."

During the red carpet for Sunday's (April 14) ceremony, Waddingham was asked by a photographer to show more of her leg – something which she was quick to call out.

"Oh my God, you'd never say that to a man, my friend," she could be heard saying in a fan video (posted to X).

"Don't be a d**k otherwise I’ll move off. Don't say 'show me leg'. No," she continued, before walking away from the photographer in question.
