BBC sees off Netflix as drama Peaky Blinders leads the pack

ITV2 dating show Love Island scored a Bafta in the reality and constructed factual category but it was defeated by Blue Planet II for the Virgin TV must-see moment prize. Along with the show's award for Best Mini-Series, star Molly Windsor won the BAFTA for Leading Actress.

The show was also a big victor at the BAFTA TV Craft Awards and Philippa Lowthorpe picked up in the Director: Fiction category, Uni Ni Dhonghaile in the Editing: Fiction category and Nicole Taylor, the Writer: Drama category.

Veteran actor Sean Bean took home the BAFTA for Leading Actor for his portrayal of a priest in the drama series "Broken".

'Jodie was the ideal choice because if there is one thing this year has taught us; if anyone has experience of fighting off grotesque monsters it's an actress'.

Broadchurch's Whittaker is one of the stars who will be joined by real-life women championing issues portrayed in the nominated shows.

The show is up for best entertainment programme at Sunday's awards, alongside Britain's Got Talent and The Voice, also on ITV, and Michael McIntyre's Big Show (BBC One). As Molly Windsor collected her prize for the BBC drama, about grooming, she said: 'Three Girls was born out of the courage of the real three girls'.
