BAFTA TV Awards 2018 Winners

Alongside shock winners Cruising with Jane McDonald and Love Island, Three Girls and This Country became the biggest winners of the night with two wins each.

For the second year running, Sue Perkins hosted the awards from Royal Festival Hall in London and helping her this year was the VOICE of Love Island, Iain Stirling, who introduced each of the nominations and invited the award givers onto the stage.

Presenting awards on the night were Anita Rani, Ashley Walters, Bradley Walsh, Clare Balding, Claudia Winkleman, Dermot O’Leary, Emma Willis, Greg Davies, Jodie Whittaker, Joely Richardson, John Bishop, Martin Freeman, Michelle Keegan, Sir Mo Farah, Nish Kumar, Noel Clarke, Ore Oduba, Victoria Derbyshire and Wunmi Mosaku.

This Country walked away with the BAFTA for Scripted Comedy and Daisy May Cooper won Female Performance in a Comedy Programme.

The BAFTA for Leading Actress was awarded to BAFTA Breakthrough Brit, Molly Windsor, for her performance in Three Girls which also won Mini-Series.

Sean Bean won the BAFTA for Leading Actor for his portrayal of a priest at the centre of a troubled community, in the drama series Broken,

In the Supporting Actor category, BrÍan F. O’Byrne received the BAFTA for his performance as a bereaved father in Little Boy Blue, and Vanessa Kirby took home the BAFTA for Supporting Actress for her role as Princess Margaret in The Crown.

The BAFTA for Male Performance in a Comedy Programme was awarded to Toby Jones for his performance in Detectorists and Graham Norton won his sixth BAFTA, third for Entertainment Performance for The Graham Norton Show.

Love Island received the BAFTA for Reality & Constructed Factual, and Channel 5 won its first BAFTA since 2011, for Cruising with Jane McDonald in the Features category.

The Special Award was presented to John Motson OBE in recognition of his outstanding contribution to sports broadcasting. Motson leaves the BBC today at the end of a 50 year career.

The Fellowship, the highest accolade the Academy bestows, was presented to Kate Adie OBE. A truly groundbreaking news journalist, Adie is one of a very small number of women to have reported from hostile environments around the world.

Criminally overlooked was Line of Duty which was nominated four awards and didn't walk away with a single one. Also overlooked by the jury was Blue Planet II which lost out to Basquiat - Rage to Riches in Specialist Factual. But thank goodness for the public who got it right as they awarded the Virgin Must-See Moment award to Blue Planet II, the only award decided by the public.
