Last night’s BAFTA TV Awards was held at London’s Royal Festival Hall, to pay honour to the best contributors during the last year of television. Hosted by Sue Perkins, the winners included the hilarious Michael McIntyre, whom stated, “They told me I wouldn’t win. Well, daddy won!”
Also, we couldn’t be happier to discover the much-loved Wunmi Musaku who won best supporting actress for Damilola, Our Loved Boy. The BBC completely dominated the Award Ceremony, winning ¾ of the awards, including Happy Valley, and surprisingly Coronation Street wasn’t even nominated!
