'Bohemian Rhapsody' star Rami Malek seems to have taken emulating Freddie Mercury to a whole new level with his tight pants at the Bafta Awards. While appearing at the Sunday event, the actor, who won Best Actor for his portrayal of the Queen frontman, appeared to have squeezed into his clothes just like Mercury used to.

The actor posed with Best Actress winner Olivia Coleman, with both stars seen clutching on to their iconic gongs. Both Coleman and Malek wore monochrome outfits to the ceremony but Malek looked like he had rammed himself into his very tight trousers, especially around the crotch, to achieve the chic look, reports the Sun.

The actor's trouser glitch comes after a 'Top Of The Pops' cameraman in 'Bohemian Rhapsody' reportedly couldn't stop himself from filming the frontman's crotch while he performed on stage.

But all thanks to his role as Freddie Mercury, Malek has managed to have quite a successful award season this year.

While collecting his best actor award, Malek said, "I still cannot believe that I’m included with this group of actors. It’s quite difficult entering your [British] world with this role, as an outsider. It’s not lost on me how sacred your musical heritage is."

During his acceptance speech, the actor revealed that while shooting for the movie in London, he fell so in love with the city that he is now looking for a pad to keep in the capital. He added: “Shooting here was honestly one of the best things I’ve done in my life."

The 'Mr. Robot' star concluded by saying, "I got to go from Abbey Road Studios, Air Studios and see all of London and fall in love with it, to the point where I am looking for a place to live here."

However, the actor did not forget to thank Freddie Mercury, “the greatest outsider of them all”, as he won the leading actor award. He added: “Thank you so very much to Queen, the entire Queen family, I wouldn’t be here without you."

"And to the greatest outsider of them all, for being so unwavering and unflinching and uncompromising in every which way, thank you, Freddie Mercury, again.”
