SHE is one of cinema's hottest young talents and now Witney's Gugu Mbatha-Raw has secured a place on the front cover of Vogue.

The fashion magazine's feature promises to give readers the chance to meet 'Britain's breakout star'.

The actress follow's March's cover star Gigi Hadid, while Margot Robbie and Nicole Kidman graced the front page in February.

It has been a momentous few months for the star, who picked up an MBE at Buckingham Palace last month.

The Doctor Who actress, who also won accolades for her role in the 2013 period drama Belle, spoke out in support of the Time's Up movement as she received the honour.

The 34-year-old also starred alongside Emma Watson last year in Disney's live-action remakre of Beauty and the Beast.

Inside April's edition of Vogue Ms Mbatha-Raw appears in a futuristic shoot, wearing a silver suit.

She also speaks about her experience starring in A Wrinkle in Time, which saw her briefly team up with Oprah Winfrey.

She told Vogue: "We didn't have any scenes together in Wrinkle.

"But we were both on the set on the same day and she came and hung out in my trailer for a little bit and we had a chat, in her full character regalia, which is just goddess-like."

April's Vogue is on sale from tomorrow.
