The end is in sight for the Peaky Blinders as series creator Steven Knight has confirmed the crime drama will finsh after its seventh season. 

However, it's not all bad news. Speaking after the BAFTAs on Sunday evening, Steven told Digital Spy how he is considering the possibiltiy of making a follow-movie movie. 

The show's boss told the publication: "My ambition is to make it a story of a family between two wars, so always I've wanted to end it with the first air raid siren in Birmingham in 1939.

"It'll take three more series [to reach that point]." 

It's thought that the film would be released after the final season has aired, though Steven is not opposed to the idea of having it come out between two of the remaining series. 

"We're getting approached to do all kinds of things – the ballet, the musical… and the movie would be great.

"I wouldn't want to do it at the very end, but maybe in between two of the series."

Peaky Blinders took home the award for Best Drama at the BAFTA ceremony in London last night, beating out Netflix's The Crown and Line of Duty

Accepting the award,  Steven gave a nod to the show's stars Cillian Murphy and Helen McCrory, saying: "I wish the people who created such iconic TV, soon maybe they will be here as well because they deserve to be."

The fifth season will air on BBC Two in 2019 and is set to be released on Netflix.

The BAFTAs often happen to fall around mid-February, and for the first time in a while this year, they took place on Valentine's Day itself, February 14.

Host Stephen Fry paid homage to many of the "gifts" the US has given this side of the world ("foam fingers… leaf blowers…. syrup on bacon"), before introducing the audience to the first ever BAFTA Kiss Cam – and using it to catch out a few unsuspecting celebs.

After Stanley Tucci planted an absolute smacker on Cuba Gooding Jr's cheek, the cameras turned to Leonardo DiCaprio and the inimitable Dame Maggie Smith.

What followed was one of the most adorable award show moments we've seen so far this year, as Leo leaned in to give a surprised (and totally chuffed) Maggie a big smooch:

Amazing. Maggie even returned the favour by turning around to hug Leo after his inpromptu kiss.

While most of the guests played along with the fun – Bryan Cranson and Julianne Moore went for a full on French kiss – two people who weren't into kissing on camera were real-life couple Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander.

The pair, who've been together since last year, looked downright awkward as the cameras panned to them, choosing instead to stare straight ahead rather than look at each other.

Maybe next time…?!

Irish actress Saoirse Ronan has been all over the papers this week as she does the press circuit ahead with Brooklyn ahead of awards season.

But unfortunately a few high-profile media outlets still refuse to consider her as 'Irish,' despite her Carlow upbringing and Irish passport.

Sky News made that exact faux-pas today, when discussing the BAFTA Best Actress nomination list, on which Saoirse was included.

"If we look at the leading actress category, I think we can take Saoirse Ronan as one of ours," one presenter said, also referencing (actual British person) Dame Maggie Smith.

"She's in Brooklyn, she's nominated."

German-Irish actor Michael Fassbender was another star noted as British later in the report, to really mess things up.

Hmmmm. Needless to say, Twitter went into overdrive after the unfortunate comments:

Barely a month ago, the same problem befell Saoirse, Michael and Colin Farrell as they were all nominated under 'Best British Actor/Actress' categories at the London Critics' Circle Awards.

Anyone need a map? It sounds like it…

Rita Ora recently spoke of what it was like to work with the cast of her new raunchy film, Fifty Shades of Grey especially with her famous co-star, Jamie Dornan.

Speaking on her first filming experience with Dornan, she said she considered Jamie a friend and that she also thought he was “gorgeous”.

But if Jamie’s recent remarks at Sunday’s BAFTA are anything to go by, he doesn’t seem that overly impressed by his co-star’s comments.

Apparently Jamie was questioned on whether he found Rita’s remarks about him to be flattering, to which he gave a blunt response of “No, I don’t”.

Jamie  apparently added to this, by saying Rita’s appearance on set was brief, so he didn’t understand how the two of them could be considered friends.

“She was only on set for two days. I wouldn’t say we’re friends.”

Ouch, we wonder what Rita would have to say about this?

We love this girl!

Despite her multiple wins in the past, Jennifer Lawrence didn’t believe she’d won the award for Best Supporting Actress for American Hustle at this year’s BAFTAs.

The Oscar-winner was forced to skip the ceremony due to filming commitments on X-Men: Days of Future Past and the news was delivered by someone on set.

Jen has been neck-in-neck with Lupita Nyong’o from 12 Years a Slave since awards season started and was also up against Julia Roberts, Oprah Winfrey and Sally Hawkins in this category.

When asked about her win by Deadline, she said: “Oh, it was a big surprise. I didn’t remember that the BAFTAs were happening that day. I certainly did not think I was going to win one, so I put it out of my mind. So there I was, in the middle of being painted blue, and someone said, ‘You just won the BAFTA!’ And I said, ‘Oh, go f**k yourself!’ And then it turned out they were serious.”

Never a dull moment with Jennifer – we can’t wait to see what happens at the Oscars!
