The ceremony, which celebrates the best behind-the-scenes talent in British television of the past year, gave its Special Award to the reality dance talent show which has become a firm favourite since hitting the screens in 2004.

Dancer Anton du Beke and former winner Kara Tointon collected on behalf of the BBC production team.

Historical gangster epic Peaky Blinders received two Baftas - one for Otto Bathurst as director and another went to George Steel for photography and lighting.

Victoria Wood, Lennie James, Emilia Fox, Arthur Darvill and Patsy Palmer were among the stars who attended the ceremony in London. The event was hosted by Stephen Mangan.
