'Peaky Blinders' wins big at BAFTA Television Awards

Maxine Peake as Sara Rowbotham in Three Girls

Three-part drama series "Three Girls" was the other standout of the night; written by Nicole Taylor and directed by Philippa Lowthorpe, the BBC One mini-series depicts the events surrounding the Rochdale child sex abuse ring.

Catching A Killer director Anna Hall will bring Jo Beverley, the sister of Natalie Hemming, whose murder by her ex-partner was documented in the programme. Brian F O'Byrne dedicated his win in the best supporting actor category to the parents of Rhys Jones, the Liverpool school boy who was murdered in 2007.

It was nominated for the coveted gong days after Donnelly hosted the variety programme alone, following McPartlin's auto crash.

Line Of Duty (BBC One), Peaky Blinders (BBC Two), and The End Of The F***ing World (All4) are up alongside The Crown for drama series.

Sean Bean won the award for Leading Actor for his performance as a Catholic priest in Broken against Joe Cole for the "Hang the DJ" episode of Black Mirror, Tim Piggott-Smith for King Charles III and Jack Rowan for Born to Kill.

Netflix won its first major television Bafta as Vanessa Kirby was honoured for her role as Princess Margaret in The Crown.

Given royal fever is at its highest, as we are days away from a royal wedding, and The Crown was somewhat unfairly snubbed past year, it was only right that the drama did receive an award and it did.

Foy had been nominated for a second consecutive year for her role as the Queen in The Crown, while Newton was nominated for Line Of Duty.

Virgin TV's "must-see moment", voted for by the public, was presented to Blue Planet II for the "Mother Pilot Whale Grieves" scene. However, EastEnders missed out on a nomination in the category.

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts has announced the winners of the Virgin TV British Academy Television Awards, celebrating and rewarding the very best programs and performances of 2017.
