Jodie Comer stuns in BAFTAs dress as she returns to social media

Jodie Comer returned to social media to post a snap of herself in a plunging dress ahead of the BAFTAs.

The Killing Eve favourite, 27, has been quiet on social media for much of the lockdown.

The celebrated Liverpool actress last posted on her Instagram page in May. But on Friday (July 31), she broke her silence with a picture of herself looking glam in the dress she'll wear as she tunes in for the 2020 British Academy Film Awards.
