Scots BAFTA presenter Edith Bowman hits back at trolls during ceremony


Scots BAFTA presenter Edith Bowman hits back at trolls who criticised her presenting style during the ceremony.

Anstruther-born Edith, who has presented the Scottish BAFTA ceremony for a number of years, was asked to cohost this year’s UK wide awards with Dermot O Leary.

The ceremony saw Nomadland scoop four prizes, including best film, best actress and best director.

It also saw Sir Anthony Hopkins win best actor for The Father.

However, much of the attention on social media was centred on the virtual ceremony itself.

Mum-of-two Edith, who looked glamorous in her blue floor-length gown and blondes tresses, received mixed reviews on everything from her dress to presenting style.

One person said: “Edith Bowman there. Just stepped out of the shower with a towel on.”

Another added: “Edith Bowman looks like she’s got out of the bath and put a towel round her.”

While another trolled: “Do you not think that Edith bowman’s dress is horrendous.”

Edith chose to ignore the remarks but some other comments didn’t escape her eye – and she replied to them whilst the ceremony was still being shown live on television.

After one person asked: “Does anyone else find Edith Bowman presenting #BAFTA2021 really irritating?”, Edith replied: “Any specifics?”

As another commented: ‘Oh dear @BAFTA tonight. Dreadful @edibow screeching. Award presenters and recipients talking like Daleks. Hopeless.”, Edith suggested: “Maybe have an early night. X.”

Edith also challenged someone who asked if she was pregnant, saying ” @edithbowmanfans is @edibow pregnant as she presents the @BAFTA

She replied: ‘Abe you are a female. Wow.”

And when someone else asked: “Could Edith Bowman please stop clapping her hands” she replied: “No.”

Edith also received lots of complements on the night from admiring fans. One said: “I think tonight I finally realised how much love and adoration I have for Edith Bowman.”

Another said: “Edith Bowman is SERVING this evening she looks fire.”
