Meanwhile, as had been previously trailed, the virtual ceremony - which was hosted by Sue Perkins - also saw We Are Lady Parts creator Nida Manzoor pick up the Emerging Talent Award.

Nida thanked the We Are Lady Parts production team, explaining: "Making We Are Lady Parts was such a joy and the show has been with me for some years, so to have finally been able to make it with such an excellent cast and crew, has really meant the world to me. To be receiving an award that's so close to my heart, is just really overwhelming. Also, a huge thank you to everyone at Working Title, NBC Universal, Peacock and Channel 4 who have really allowed me the space and scope, to tell the story I wanted to tell, in the way I wanted to tell it, so I feel so supported and lucky. This is just incredible. Thank you so much"

As was revealed earlier in the month, We Are Lady Parts is due to return for Series 2 in 2022.

Elsewhere in the awards, Strictly Come Dancing was picked by the judges ahead of Taskmaster and A League Of Their Own in the Studio Entertainment category.

French hit series Call My Agent won in the Comedy Drama & Sitcom category, in which Jerk and We Are Lady Parts had been nominated.

And the Comedy category - which featured the UK comedy productions Famalam, Motherland and Staged - was won by Bo Burnham's Netflix special Inside.

The Lifetime Achievement Award, which honours a television personality for their exceptional contribution to the entertainment industry, was presented to Brenda Blethyn.
