Rochdale abuse drama actress scoops TV Bafta

Watkins was on the red carpet at the Bafta TV Awards where he told RadioTimes.com that production is about to kick off on the third series, with a read-through taking place on the morning of the ceremony, Sunday 13th May.

Awards will also be given out in categories including drama, leading actor and actress and soap.

Several winners dedicated their prizes to real-life people they portrayed. Sean Bean won Best Drama Actor for playing a troubled priest toiling in Liverpool in the fictional series "Broken" while Brian. The Handmaid's Tale, financed and first released through U.S. streaming service Hulu, won Best International Drama.

Other BAFTA winners included Love Island, Britain's Got Talent, The Handmaid's Tale and Rio Ferdinand: Being Mum and Dad.

On the comedy front, "This Country" won Best Comedy Series over "Catastrophe", "Chewing Gum" and "Timewasters".

The British Academy Television Awards nominations are for shows which aired previous year, meaning Saturday Night Takeaway is in the running for the series which the duo hosted together. Vanessa Kirby - who played Princess Margaret in the drama's first iteration and is nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Bafta - has been busy chatting about her critically acclaimed role...

Foy, 34, had been nominated for best actress for her role as the Queen in The Crown but lost out to Molly Windsor, 20, who won for Three Girls.

The newcomer beat the likes of The Crown's Claire Foy, Little Boy Blue's Sinead Keenan and Line of Duty's Thandie Newton.

Crime drama Line Of Duty is also up for the Virgin Must See Moment, for Huntley's narrow escape. However, EastEnders missed out on a nomination in the category.

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) will honor voice performer Nolan North, best known as Uncharted's quip-happy protagonist Nathan Drake, with a Special Award later this year.
