Millie Bobby Brown made her red carpet debut with 'BFF' Jake Bongiovi at the 2022 BAFTAs, the first time the Stranger Things star has attended the ceremony.

The pair stunned in complementing black looks, and they were captured side-by-side at the event.

Brown later shared a photo of the pair from the event, and it has received a lot of attention, with over 3.5 million likes.

Bongiovi also shared a video clip of them being photographed at the event, which he accompanied with a trio of emojis, including a red heart.

Since then, the pair have been pictured out and about together a number of times. Most recently, they attended the Stranger Things season 4 premiere together (more on that below).

Who is Jake Bongiovi?

Bongiovi is the son of rockstar Jon Bon Jovi and his wife Dorothea Hurley, and is the second youngest of four children, with two brothers Romeo, 17 and Jesse, 27, and a sister Stephanie, 28.

Not just the son of a famous musician, he's academically-minded too, having been accepted into Syracuse University in NYC, with plans to gain a doctorate.

Jake Bongiovi, who doesn't intend on following in his dad's music-fuelled footsteps, is an activist too. When he was just 15, he put on a national student walkout while at Pennington School, in aid of highlighting the non-intervention regarding mass shootings in US schools. This came after 17 were killed in Parkland, Florida, in February 2018.

Here's everything you need to know about their relationship:
