The 64-year-old was in his LA home, and was also incredibly suntanned – clearly Bruno has been lapping up the California sunshine throughout the lockdown period!

Tess could be heard saying: "Thank you so much BAFTA this is such an honour it's the second time we've won this award, and it's for the whole team who worked so hard."

As for Craig, he set off a confetti canon as he exclaimed: "Thank you darlings and thanks to you too Tess and Claudia, can I say ladies you two are simply fabulous."
