The winners of the Broadcast Awards 2024 have been announced.
The awards noted: "With a tight comedy production schedule offering little time for experimentation, the challenge for BBC Studios Comedy Productions was to celebrate and capture the improvisational energy of the two young leads, while also hitting big emotional story beats and keeping the comedy culturally accurate and consistently funny."
The judges concluded that the show's producers had succeeded, showcasing "genuinely funny performances that seamlessly mix clever improv with realistic drama".
Elsewhere in the awards, Dreaming Whilst Black won in the International Programme Sales category, whilst quiz show The 1% Club fronted by Lee Mack came out top in the Entertainment Programme shortlist.
Russell Brand: In Plain Sight, the documentary that brought allegations of rape and sexual assault to public attention, was named Best Current Affairs Programme.
Lycett was praised by one judge for covering a serious topic "with a skilled balance of comedy", and for "cleverly crafting a brave viral moment to show what it truly means to support the LGBTQ+ community rather than just say you do".
Elsewhere in the awards, finance expert Martin Lewis was given a special recognition, Happy Valley took the drama prize and Logan Roy's death in Succession was named TV Moment of the Year. The full list of results can be seen on broadcastawards.co.uk
