Channel 4 and the BBC had a successful everning at the Bafta TV Awards, scooping up eight and 13 gongs respectively.

The event was hosted by comedian friends Rob Beckett and Romesh Ranganathan from the Royal Festival Hall on Southbank in London, where the Bafta Film Awards were held earlier this year.

Dozens of Britain's best and brightest TV stars, including David Tennant and Catherine Tate were on hand to present the prestigious gongs to the 25 lucky winners. 14 year old Lenny Rush, who took home the award for Male Performance in a Comedy Programme, was the youngest winner of the night.

Stars were asked not to make their speeches too political, although a few attendees used their time on the red carpet before the ceremony to speak about the WGA strike which is ongoing across the Atlantic. The ceremony also featured an emotional In Memory Of section, remembering late stars we lost in the last year - among those honoured were presenter Jerry Springer, Strictly judge Len Goodman, comedian Paul O'Grady, and actress Raquel Welch.

Ant and Dec failed to collected their 20th Bafta TV award tonight, but as they were two of the most decorated stars at the ceremony they won't be too upset. This is the full list of winners from the Bafta TV Awards 2023:
