Studio Lambert took home two prizes, a pair of Various Artists Ltd’s recently recommissioned BBC3 comedies were rewarded, and there was a shock win in the drama category at this year’s Bafta TV Awards.

Studio Lambert/The Garden co-production Squid Games: The Challenge, which Netflix has confirmed for a second series, won the Reality award. This marked the third successive victory in the category for Studio Lambert, following last year's win  for the first series of BBC1’s The Traitors and 2022's award for Channel 4’s Gogglebox.

It also scooped the Factual Entertainment Bafta for BBC1’s Celebrity Race Across the World, the first celebrity variant of the hit show.

The debut series of BBC3’s Such Brave Girls won in Comedy, days after its recommission was confirmed and building on creator and lead actress Kat Sadler’s Bafta Craft Award for Emerging Talent: Fiction.

Similarly, Mawaan Rizwan won Male Performance in a Comedy for his BBC3 series Juice, which is also heading for a second series. Both series are made by Various Artists Ltd.

Another BBC3 comedy, Tiger Aspect’s Mobility, won in the Short Form category.

Meanwhile, Netflix’s Top Boy – the Cowboy Films/Easter Partisan Films/Dream Crew/SpringHill Entertainment  series that began life on Channel 4 – was crowned in the Drama category, with one of its stars, Jasmine Jobson, winning a Supporting Actress award.

Top Boy beat the third and final series of Lookout Point’s BBC1’s drama Happy Valley, which still picked up Leading Actress in a Drama for Sarah Lancashire and the Memorable Moment Award.

BBC1 drama The Sixth Commandment, a co-pro between drama indie Wild Mercury Productions and factual label True Vision, won Limited Drama, with star Timothy Spall named Leading Actor in a Drama.

Mindhouse Productions’ Sky series Lockerbie won in the Documentary Series category, beating BBC2’s much-garlanded Once Upon a Time in Northern Ireland.

Elsewhere in factual, Flicker Productions picked up the Single Documentary award for ITV1’s Ellie Simmonds: Finding My Secret Family, and Channel 5’s White Nanny, Black Child (Doc Hearts/Tigerlilly Productions/BFI) won a Specialist Factual Bafta.
