'Peaky Blinders' Takes Home the BAFTA TV Award for Best Drama Series

'Peaky Blinders' Takes Home the BAFTA TV Award for Best Drama Series

Three Girls was the victor in the miniseries category, and Molly Windsor took home the performance win for leading actress for Three Girls. 'Now I know how Susanna Reid feels on Good Morning Britain'.

The actor - who won a Bafta in 2014 for his portrayal of the eponymous character in The Lost Honour of Christopher Jefferies and played Tim Ifield in the last series of Line of Duty - added that Wilson is really interesting to play because he was the first working class British PM so he "rattled the cage".

In an interview with The Guardian, Molly said: 'What I found most challenging was that it was true. I don't think [the abuse] will ever leave any of them, but she is fearless enough to go through it again with us to film it. The event wasn't a total loss for Netflix's popular royal drama series - Vanessa Kirby, who portrayed Princess Margaret, won Best Supporting Actress, and dedicated the award to Queen Elizbeth II's late sister.

Collecting the prize from Sherlock star Martin Freeman, Windsor said: "Three Girls was born out of the courage of the real three girls, and the real Holly, Amber and Ruby, who told their story over and over and over and told it again to us". "I don't want to ignore the elephant in the room but on such an occasion I think it would be crass to discuss my fee", she said.

Love Island beat rivals The Real Full Monty and Celebrity Hunted for the Best Reality and Constructed Factual prize with Caroline Flack accepting the award. The victor for leading actor was Sean Bean for Broken.

Acclaimed voice actor Nolan North is set to receive a special BAFTA award next month in recognition for his "outstanding contribution" to performance in video games, the organization has announced. Other notable honours went to The Handmaid's Tale for Best International Programme, Murdered For Being Different for Best Single Drama, and Casualty for Best Soap and Continuing Drama.
