Toast Of Tinseltown has won the international Rose d'Or award for comedy.

The BBC comedy, which is written by Matt Berry and Arthur Mathews, picked up the award in the Comedy category of the prestigious international broadcasting awards.

Broadcast on BBC Two in January and February, the show saw Berry reprise the role of Steven Toast, the actor character he had previously played in the 2012 to 2015 Channel 4 series Toast Of London.

Toast Of Tinseltown saw the "actor, voice-over artist, and legend of the London theatrical scene" trying to establish a new life for himself in America, where he had been promised a 'leading role' in a major Hollywood franchise movie. On the road to making it big in America he meets an extremely angry director, becomes a success in a soap opera playing a doctor, bites off the ear of a Hollywood A-lister, and gets lost in the desert...

The longlist for the Comedy category also featured British comedies Bloods, Ellie & Natasia and Question Team, plus About Last Night (France), ANA (Mexico), As Seguidoras (Brazil), Die Carolin Kebekus Show (Germany), Gruen Nation (Australia), Joja's Bullitalk (Germany), La Flamme (Germany), LOL - Last One Laughing (Germany), Lust (Sweden), Mister Speaker (Sweden), Pepe (Hungary), The Wasp (Germany), UFOs (France) and What's Your Story? (Brazil).
