Here's a transcript of today's podcast:
The biggest night in television saw some famous names all attend the TV baftas 2022 to celebrate the best shows from the past year. Some of the biggest wins of the night went to Big Zuu for his Big Eats series, Jodie Comer for her performance in drama, Help, and Strictly stars Giovanni Pernice and Rose Ayling-Ellis – who won the award for Must-See Moment for their moving performance during last year's series. Rose, who was the first deaf competitor on the show, said how the award was helping to raise more awareness for the deaf community. However, some were disappointed after Channel 4's It's A Sin, which was nominated for 11 awards, failed to pick up any trophies. You can see the full list of winners over on hello mag .com.
