BROADCHURCH scooped two top awards at the glitzy Royal Television Society awards.

It was a night of celebration for the Broadchurch camp as the programme was named Best Drama Serial and Olivia Colman won Best Actress.

The accolades came thick and fast at the Royal Television Society awards, held last night at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.

Olivia Colman, won the best actress award for the second year in a row, for her role as DS Ellie Miller in the West Dorset crime-thriller.

Judges called her ‘an actor at the top of her game.’ Taking to the stage without her shoes, she said: ''I kicked them off under the table and forgot to put them back on.''
