Professor Stephen Hawking is expected to mingle with Hollywood stars tonight as he makes an unlikely red carpet appearance at the UK premiere of a film celebrating his life.

He will join figures such as Eddie Redmayne – who plays the eminent scientist in the biopic – at the screening of The Theory Of Everything.

The film is based on the memoir Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen, which was written by Jane Hawking, the first wife of the man who is recognised as one of the greatest minds of his generation.

It looks back to their days as Cambridge students in the early 1960s, when the then-cosmology undergraduate was first diagnosed with motor neurone disease, which went on to rob him of most physical movements.

Director James Marsh’s film shows how their relationship evolved over subsequent years, as Hawking became lauded for his dazzling intellect.

Also attending the screening at London’s Odeon Leicester Square will be Felicity Jones who plays Jane, to whom Hawking was married for 26 years until their divorce in 1991.
