Stars out for big night at the Baftas

Maxine Peake as Sara Rowbotham in Three Girls

Vanessa Kirby, 30, who plays Princess Margaret in The Crown, dazzled in a sequinned gown and went on to win the Best Supporting actress BAFTA for her role.

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

Comedian and presenter Sue Perkins hosted the event and poked fun at The Crown's gender pay dispute.

"I just want to say thank you for recognising how selfless that is and how courageous that is".

Love Island beat rivals The Real Full Monty and Celebrity Hunted for the Best Reality and Constructed Factual prize with Caroline Flack accepting the award.

There was also room for a joke about Harvey Weinstein and his alleged sexual assaults.

Moving on to Doctor Who, she joked about Jodie Whittaker taking over the Tardis.

British ex-culture minister Tessa Jowell dies at 70
Tessa Jowell, the former United Kingdom culture secretary who played a key role in securing the 2012 London Olympics, has died. In the final days they had been looking to try to create a vaccine from the DNA of the tumour but it came too late.

'Jodie was the ideal choice because if there is one thing this year has taught us; if anyone has experience of fighting off grotesque monsters it's an actress'.

Several winners dedicated their prizes to real-life people they portrayed. The program had already won three BAFTAs back at the April 22 British Academy Television Craft Awards.

The cast of Three Girls praised the social workers and police officers who risked their jobs, while accepting their award for the drama, which told the real story of abused and sexually exploited school girls from Rochdale.

It was not a successful night for diverse nominees.

The Handmaid's Tale was the victor in the category of global series. Toby Jones ("Detectorists") took Best Comedy Actor over last year's victor, "People Just Do Nothing" co-creator Asim Chaudhry, as well as Rob Brydon ("The Trip to Spain") and Samson Kayo ("Famalam"). Amazon Prime was snubbed completely from the awards.

John Motson was honored with a special award on the same day he retired from sports commentary.

Former footballer Rio Ferdinand's programme Rio Ferdinand: Being Mum And Dad, about the loss of his wife Rebecca to cancer, won the single documentary Bafta.
