The story shows the stage being set alongside the Champions League trophy and then pans down to a script on the presenter’s iPad.

Chowdhury captioned the story with “Final rehearsals” alongside a pair of eyes staring emoji.

The script on the iPad showed instructions for the presenter with what to say between each draw.

The words on the script read: “Thank you Giorgio. So we now have our first teams in their groups. Lets take a look at the clubs in Pot 2.”

Those were then the exact words Chowdhury used when the actual draw was held.

Fans online were quick to heap praise on Reshmin’s dress.

This evening’s draw threw up some surprises, with a group of death for Newcastle who were drawn alongside PSG, AC Milan and Borussia Dortmund in Group F.

Manchester United also got a slightly tricky draw after being drawn in Group A.

Arsenal have been rewarded for their return to the Champions League with an extremely winnable group.
