Jennifer Saunders said she was totally stunned to win the BAFTA for best female comedy performance. The 'Absolutely Fabulous' star said it was a wonderful surprise to be given the honour after so many years. The actress joked that her character Edina however might not have been able to cope.
Dominic West said he was delighted at winning the BAFTA for leading actor, especially against such a strong field. After the ceremony, he joked about having to make a speech, but he was elated at being chosen for the award.
The actor, who also starred in the acclaimed series 'The Wire', said the drama based on serial killer Fred West, was a high risk subject which attracted plenty of criticism. He said the fact that 'Appropriate Adult' won three awards on the night showed they'd made the right choice.
William Roache, Coronation Street's longest serving actor, paid tribute to the team effort behind the show which picked up the coveted Best Soap award at the BAFTA's. The cast looked stunned when the announcement was made, winning it back from rivals Eastenders.
The winner of this year's BAFTA for best entertainment programme has admitted he does not have a television. Derren Brown, whose show involved hypnotising people to carry out bizarre acts, beat off competition from Harry Hill, Michael McIntyre and Celebrity Juice.
Absolutely Fabulous star Jennifer Saunders says she hopes to start filming a big screen version of the show next year.
The actress - who plays champagne-swigging PR Edina Monsoon in the comedy - is hopeful all the cast can get together then.
She said: "We've made the Olympics one and it goes out a week before the Olympics. We might make a film next year. It's so hard to get everybody together for that amount of time, but hopefully...".
Doctor Who fans can get ready to hide behind the sofa again after the show's chief Steven Moffat revealed the Daleks are coming back.
Moffat, who picked up a special award at tonight's TV Baftas, said he had not begun work on the new series of Sherlock as he was busy working on the Time Lord's Christmas special. He was tight-lipped on details of the show but revealed the return of the Doctor's worst enemies.
He said: "The Daleks are coming back and they're worse than ever. Just you wait until you see what they're going to do. If I even told you the title you would say, 'Ah'."
Coronation Street scooped the BAFTA award for Soap and Continuing Drama. The team posed with their awards after leaving the stage. Bill Roache, who plays Ken Barlow, accepted the award and praised the "team effort" behind the long-running show.
