BAFTA has announced the winners of the 69th BAFTA Television Awards.

The ceremony, which was presented by Rob Beckett and Romesh Ranganathan, saw Bad Sisters, Derry Girls, Mood and I Am... Ruth collecting the top prizes in their respective categories.

Apple TV+ series Bad Sisters won the award for Best Drama, with Anne-Marie Duff also winning the Best Supporting Actress award for her role in the series. Derry Girls picked up multiple awards, with Siobhán McSweeney winning Best Female Performance in a Comedy.

Ben Whishaw and Kate Winslet took home the top acting prizes for the Drama categories, but it was a bad night overall for BBC drama The Responder, which failed to land a single win despite going into the ceremony with a leading four nominations.
