Carey Mulligan hailed as ‘an icon’ after incredible Jaffa Cake moment

Carey Mulligan is a woman after our hearts after it was revealed that she paused on the Oscars red carpet to accept a Jaffa Cake from Good Morning Britain presenter Ross King. 

The international superstar, who most recently appeared in Saltburn alongside Rosamund Pike and Barry Keoghan and Maestro with Bradley Cooper, was offered a selection of sweet treats including Quality Street, a biscuit and a Jaffa cake on her way into the event on 2nd March – and naturally, she chose a Jaffa cake.
