Earlier in the evening, Kate and Mia also took to the stage as I Am Ruth was awarded Best Single Drama.
Ben Whishaw, who won critical acclaim for his performance as NHS junior Adam Kay in This Is Going To Hurt, was awarded the Best Actor prize, beating out competition including Gary Oldman, Martin Freeman, Cillian Murphy and Chaske Spencer.
On stage, the actor, 42, said: ‘Oh goodness me, I really didn’t think that would happen and I love so much the actors in this category.’
The medical drama is based on Kay’s book This Is Going To Hurt: Secret Diaries Of A Junior Doctor which chronicles his work training to be a doctor in the NHS.
The night also saw Sir Mo Farah win for his BBC One documentary The Real Mo Farah which revealed he had been illegally trafficked to the UK as a child.
Collecting the best single documentary prize, the four-time Olympic champion dedicated the award to ‘children who are being trafficked’.
In his speech, he said: ‘The kids have no say at all, they are just kids and no child should ever go through what I did, I hope my story shows they aren’t alone, we are in it together.’
The 40-year-old thanked the team at the BBC because it ‘wasn’t easy’ to film and he wouldn’t have been able to it ‘without them’, while his wife Tania Nell said it was the couples children who ’empowered’ them to tell the story.
At the start of the show, Siobhan McSweeney won her first BAFTA TV award for Best Female Performance in a comedy programme, for playing Sister Michael, the eye-rolling principal of the show’s Our Lady Immaculate College in the Channel 4 programme Derry Girls.
Moving: The pair starred in the drama about a mother and her 14-year-old daughter, whose mental health is gravely affected by the dangers of social media
Aw! Kate’s Mia sweetly hugged her mother as she accepted the award
It wasn’t the only award for the comedy, which came to an end with its third series last year, as it also received the award for Best Scripted Comedy Programme.
In the humorous speech, which she said in double speed given the short time given, she said: ‘So I’ve been warned not to do a political statement, so as my mother laid dying in Cork, one of the very last things she said to me was would I not consider retraining as a teacher. If she could see me now, getting a Bafta for playing a teacher. Joke’s on you.’
She also thanked Derry Girls writer Lisa McGee ‘for not listening to me when I said I could play all the girls parts’ and she also thanked Channel 4, adding ‘you have my devotion’.
McSweeney added: ‘To the people in Derry, thank you taking me into your hearts and living room, despite the ignorance of your so-called leaders in Dublin, Stormont and Westminster. Into the words of my beloved Sister Michael, ‘its time they started to wise up’.
The reality and constructed factual award was given to psychological adventure show, The Traitors, and collecting the prize, presenter Claudia Winkleman, 51, said she and the team are ‘blown away by this, thank you so much’.
She also thanked the BBC and referenced the meeting where commissioning editors agreed to make the show saying: ‘We are going to Scotland, we’re going to use the word murder – are you okay with that?’
Things got even better for Claudia, as later that evening she received the Entertainment Performance award for hosting The Traitors.
The presenter, 51, said she did not want to get emotional as her mascara ‘will run’ before asking her husband: ‘Please, can we have a dog?’
She also ‘thanked’ her mother and father and said it was ‘for you’ before saying: ‘You can’t have it… no, but you can touch it.’
Lenny Rush took home the award for Best Male Comedy Performance for his lauded performance in Am I Being Unreasonable?
