This Country, Three Girls Each Score Two BAFTA TV Awards

And although Claire Foy has already collected a Golden Globe and SAG Award for capturing the essence of Queen Elizabeth II, she lost Best Drama Actress to Molly Windsor who won for the docudrama "Three Girls", which was named Best Miniseries.

Three Girls was the victor in the miniseries category, and Molly Windsor took home the performance win for leading actress for Three Girls.

It told the harrowing story of the children who were groomed, sexually abused and trafficked by British Pakistani men in Rochdale.

The hit crime drama beat the likes of The Crown and Line of Duty to take the top prize - its only nomination - at the London ceremony, where show creator Steven Knight admitted he was a little disappointed at the lack of acting nods for the cast, which includes Cillian Murphy, Helen McCrory, and Paul Anderson.

Netflix won its first major television Bafta as Vanessa Kirby was honoured for her role as Princess Margaret in The Crown. "And I just want to say thank you to everyone for recognizing how selfless that is and how courageous that is".

It picked up its first film Bafta for Ava DuVernay's documentary 13th in 2017. "If you haven't seen [Love Island], it's about a group of people who are sent home from an island they love, that couldn't happen in real life".

Other winners included The Handmaid's Tale winning the award for best worldwide series, This Country winning Scripted Comedy, Daisy May Cooper winning Female Performance in a Comedy Program for This Country and Toby Jones winning Male Performance in a Comedy Program for Detectorists, among others.

The scene of a mother pilot whale grieving her young scored the only prize voted for by the public. The drama also won best mini-series.

Former footballer Rio Ferdinand's programme Rio Ferdinand: Being Mum And Dad, about the loss of his wife Rebecca to cancer, won the single documentary Bafta.
