The Virgin Media British Academy Television Awards 2019 took place on Sunday, as TV’s great and good gathered in Central London to celebrate an eventful year.

It was a big night for Killing Eve, which took home three awards – Drama Series, Leading Actress for Jodie Comer, who plays Villanelle, and Supporting Actress for Fiona Shaw.

Meanwhile, Ant & Dec may have lost out in the Entertainment Performance category to Lee Mack (winning his first ever BAFTA), but they were still able to celebrate double awards victory with Britain’s Got Talent and I’m a Celebrity.

Ant McPartlin insisted that Holly Willoughby, who stepped in for him during the 2018 series, joined Dec to give their acceptance speech, pushing her forward from the group assembled on stage.

Benedict Cumberbatch won the Leading Actor prize for Patrick Melrose, which was also named best Mini-Series. And EastEnders took home the highly-coveted Soap and Continuing Drama award.
