Was Idris Elba trying to snatch the title of “most embarrassing moment in BRIT Awards history” from Madonna when he presented at the ceremony this week?
Unlikely. But intentions aside, the Luther actor forgot one important step before appearing on stage to present Album of the Year.
Rocking a pink Gucci jacket and sunglasses, Elba read out the nominees, which included Adele, Dave, Ed Sheeran, Little Simz and Sam Fender. Adele won for her album 30.
At some point he realized his fly was down, but not before viewers did:

Why the hell are people complaining that Idris Elba’s fly was open at The Brits?
They’re acting like that’s not the best possible outcome.

There goes any chance of Idris Elba becoming the next James Bond.
007 would never be caught in public with his fly open. ???
