The stars of British Television, both sides of the camera, celebrated the very best in Free TV at the sixth annual Freesat Free TV Awards, produced by TBI Media.

Hosted by comedian Marcus Brigstocke , the awards ceremony was attended by a 250 strong VIP audience of celebrities, media and broadcasters, including the likes of James Corden and Keeley Hawes.

Over 200 entries competed across twelve categories, and winners were chosen by an expert panel of broadcasting industry executives and television commentators,chaired by journalist and commentator, Neil Midgley.

ITV took home three awards, with Best Live TV Programme or Series going to Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway, which the judges said had delivered ‘Extraordinary ambition, week after week’. Ant and Dec also won Personality of the Year, for the second year in a row, and Coronation Street was named Best British TV Soap. BBC Two won the Freesat Channel of the Year award, as judges praised the channel for ‘firing on all cylinders; with strong dramas, great comedy and expertise in every territory from science to history’.
