Hosted by comedian Richard Ayoade, the ceremony celebrated the best of British television across multiple categories.

A number of winners used their speeches to hail the value of Channel 4 and criticise Government plans to privatise the broadcaster.

Sir Billy Connolly joked that he was happy to receive the prestigious Bafta fellowship “now my career is out the window” in a pre-recorded message at the academy’s TV awards.

The 79-year-old Scottish comedian, also known as The Big Yin, lives in the US and was not able to attend the event in person but recorded an acceptance speech.
