Downton Abbey picked up Most Popular Drama, while Sheridan Smith picked up Outstanding Drama Performance for her portrayal of Cilla Black, beating out the likes of Oscar nominee Benedict Cumberbatch and Dame Maggie Smith.

The unlucky actress was stuck in traffic and did not arrive in time to collect her award, but later arrived on stage to apologise and thank voters.
