Timothee Chalamet dazzled in magenta as he attended the world premiere of Wonka on Tuesday.

Oscar-winner Olivia Colman, who plays Mrs Scrubbit in the movie, took selfies with fans at the Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre and sported a long black dress with a sheer cape.

The film is based on Roald Dahl’s Charlie And The Chocolate Factory, published in 1964, which tells the tale of a chocolate factory full of mind-bending treats and orange Oompa-Loompas.

Both Colman, 49, and Chalamet were pictured promoting the film at Potter’s Field Park in London on Monday.

The surge in promotion comes after US actors’ union Sag-Aftra reached a deal with the Alliance of Motion Picture and TV Producers (AMPTP) to end the 118-day walkout earlier this month.

Horrible Histories actor Matthew Baynton, who stars as Fickelgruber in the film, was at the premiere sporting a dark navy and black suit with coiffed hair.
