I'm sat between Lea and Tim.

I've never in the U.S. heard this. We say I am seated between Lea and Tim. or I was seated between them. Not sure what grammar book uses this expression, I am sat. Never heard it. I sat down is used

This relates to:
Using dans, sur, sous, devant, derrière, entre to say in, on top of, under, in front of, behind (prepositions) -

It could also be «I am sitting between Lea and Tim.»

To say 'I'm sat between Lea and Tom' may not be grammatically correct but it is commonly used in the UK - must be colloquial!

If I say 'I was sat' instead of 'I was sitting' we Brits generally mean that we did not chose our seating place but were asked to sit there by our host/hostess or a seating plan.
