Helen wore her grey hair swept from her face and teamed her show-stopping gown with statement-making drop earrings.

She made her look pop with a swipe of blush lipstick.

The film stars also posed with producer Nicky Bentham.

The Duke is a moving true story that celebrates a man who was determined to live a meaningful life.

Set in 1961, it follows the story of Kempton Bunton, a 60-year old taxi driver, who stole Goya’s portrait of the Duke of Wellington from the National Gallery in London. It was the first, and remains the only, theft in the Gallery’s history.

Kempton proceeded to send ransom notes declaring that he would only return the painting on the condition that the government invest more in care for the elderly, specifically bringing attention to his long running campaign for pensioners to receive free television.

What happened next is the stuff of legends. Only 50 years later did the full story emerge and it was revealed that Kempton had spun a web of lies.
