The biggest night for British television the TV Bafta awards took place in London last night. Hosting the star-studded event was our favourite Cork man Graham Norton. The biggest winner on the night was the BBC thriller Killing Eve, which scooped up three trophies including best drama series and best actress for Jodie Comer. The biggest talking point following the awards is the travesty of Derry Girls losing out on the Best Scripted Comedy category. The Derry Girls lost out to Sky Atlantic’s Sally4ever. Nicola Coughlan, who plays Claire in the show took to Twitter to share her disappointment with fans, they may not have one but they did look like a pack of rides on the red carpet.

Fans also took to Twitter to share their shock and disappointment that Derry Girls missed out on the award and the Sr Michael memes were out in full force.
Hello, police? I'd like to report an extreme act of theft. Derry Girls has just been robbed. #BAFTATV
