At the start of Year 11 our predicted grades are going to be based on the work we've submitted and what classes we've joined online over quarantine and nothing before that. I'm worried I'll get low predicted grades and not be able to apply to a good college at the start of Y11, is there a way to apply with my actual grades after doing my GCSEs instead of my predicted grades?

Sometimes, colleges are pretty conciliatory and will give you an offer regardless of your predicted grades. Then on results day, of course, you then have to meet their entry requirements. Maybe talk to someone that goes to the college you want to go to, and ask about how the interview process and offers work? I know that the big A-level sixth form college in my city gave conditional offers to everyone who turned up to interview. It also can't hurt to get in touch with admissions via email.
