ITV1 drama Appropriate Adult cleans up at TV Bafta Awards

Actors Dominic West and Emily Watson were big winners at last night’s TV Baftas, winning Lead Actor and Lead Actress awards for their performances in the ITV1 drama about serial killer Fred West, Appropriate Adult.

In his acceptance speech, West paid tribute to Janet Leach, who served as West's confident after his arrest.  "I hope she has had some closure and we have honoured the suffering she endured and the suffering of all the West's victims, living and dead," he said.

A Best supporting Actress award was also handed to Monica Dolan for her role in the drama.

Much-loved soap Coronation Street scooped up the award for Best Soap and Continuing Drama with Bill Roache, who plays Ken Barlow on the show, praising the “team effort” behind the successful show.

The prestigious event, formally known as the Arqiva British Academy Television Awards, was hosted by comedian Dara O'Briain at the Royal Festival Hall.
