ITV crime drama Broadchurch won Best Drama at the event at Park Lane's London Hilton hotel, with lead star David Tennant winning Best Actor for the second year.

Sheridan Smith picked up Best Actress for her acclaimed performance as Cilla Black in Cilla, and paid tribute to the late singer and entertainer who died last month aged 72.

"Obviously, it's tinged with sadness," she said on stage. "It's an absolute honour and privilege to play such an amazing lady. Thank you Cilla."

BBC's period dramas proved a hit with audiences with Poldark, starring Aidan Turner and Eleanor Tomlinson, chosen as Best New Drama and Call The Midwife winning Best Family Drama.
