7:18 Although, admittedly, the low lighting conditions and bad camera phone don't really do that sparkliness justice...
7:19@CarolineM40: David Morrissey and John Simm havinachat - presumably discussing stubble length?#rtcoversparty [via Twitter]
7:20The Apprentice winner Tom "The Inventor" Pellereau is here, chatting to our ed Ben Preston.
7:22 Comment From Ames Christian: having a bit of a sereal night watching this intetively and listening to the calipso king harry belafonte singing 'hava nageela' .....
7:22 And why not indeed - sounds like a lovely evening!
7:24Fern Britton has entered the building, along with Lulu, looking lush in leggings.
7:24@WGallagher: Russell Grant is such a pro: wouldn’t leave a video interview until he’d checked we got what we needed. #rtcoversparty [via Twitter]
7:25The leggings are on Fern by the way, although Lulu is, of course, looking lush too.
7:26Antony Cotton: Sean from Corrie and I'm a Celeb jungle star - get him in to here!
7:29 OK, this is fantastic - Russell Grant and Ann Widdecombe dancing together (for a photo opportunity - no-one's had that much to drink yet). We will, at some point in the coming days, have photographic evidence of that!
7:35@CarolineM40: Wow, Holly Valance wearing an amazing gold shift dress #rtcoversparty [via Twitter]
7:43 Terry Pratchett - the man in the hat - getting his pic taken.
7:46Katy Perry's Firework kicks in, which can mean only one thing - the presentations are about to begin!
7:47Just to explain how this works, Radio Times cover stars of 2011 are here to get up on stage and accept their framed covers. Graham Norton and our ed Ben Preston will be our hosts...
7:49Graham has taken to the stage...
7:52@HelenHackworthy: Week one was Eric & Ernie - here’s @VicReeves1 and Bryan Dick to collect the cover... #rtcoversparty [via Twitter]
7:53 Graham doing some good Channel 5 gags I'm told. Probably best not to share...
7:55Being Human star Lenora Crichlow - aka Annie the ghost - and writer Toby Whithouse go up to collect their cover.
7:56 Being Human returns for a fourth series later this year, supernatural fans...
7:57 And Mark Gatiss will be guest-starring as a vampire. RadioTimes.com: for all your entertainment news needs...

8:03 SHERLOCK. That's right, SHERLOCK. I know how you all love it. Co-creators Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat collect their cover, featuring... that's right... Benedict CUMBERBATCH!
8:03 Sorry... but I think we all get a little bit excited when it comes to Sherlock don't we?
8:05The band doing the music are awesome, by the way. Each cover star gets a special version of their theme tune - I know a capella means without music but it's kind of a capella but *with* music, if you see what I mean...
8:08@jackseale: Craig Colton to the left of me, @gracedentto the right... That’ll be the #rtcoversparty then [via Twitter]

8:11Ooh, a haunting rendition of the Downton theme - and I'm told that despite how it sounds this music is entirely done with voices. Fooled me. But I am notoriously stupid.

8:15Yes, we have Jim Carter, Jessica Brown Findlay and Laura Carmichael, who have just collected their cover.
8:19Corrie blonde Katherine Kelly is here - as a brunette! That's right, she's coloured her hair just for Radio Times.
8:20It's a BOB, people, it's a BOB! She's looking really quite different, yet still very good.
