"This is such a big moment for me and I've got terrible baby brain. I can't remember my own name never mind anyone elses," Suranne joked.

Speaking to Press Association backstage, she admitted that she was overjoyed following an incredible year that has seen her accomplish a lot in both her personal life and acting career.

"If someone had told me I would have had a husband, a baby and a BAFTA in 2016, I would not have believed them," she said. "I'm very happy with my lot."
