Dame Shirley Bassey will open this year's Bafta awards ceremony, it has been announced.

Actress Emilia Jones, who is nominated for a Bafta for her role in Coda, will also perform a rendition of folk star Joni Mitchell’s ballad Both Sides Now, a song taken from her performance in the film Coda.

The two will perform at the awards at the Royal Albert Hall on March 13. 

Dame Shirley had recorded the theme for multiple Bond films – including Goldfinger, Diamonds Are Forever and Moonraker.

Jones, daughter of Welsh singer Aled Jones, is nominated for best actress in a leading role alongside names such as Lady Gaga for House Of Gucci, Alana Haim for Licorice Pizza and Joanna Scanlan for After Love.

The Baftas will take place on March 13 and broadcast on BBC One and BBC iPlayer from 7pm.
