'Special' Bafta award for Strictly

Stephen Mangan hosted the Bafta TV and Craft awards ceremony

Strictly Come Dancing waltzed off with a special prize at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts craft awards.

The ceremony, which celebrates the best behind-the-scenes talent in British television of the past year, gave its Special Award to the reality dance talent show which has become a firm favourite since hitting the screens in 2004.

Dancer Anton du Beke and former winner Kara Tointon collected on behalf of the BBC production team.

Historical gangster epic Peaky Blinders received two Baftas - one for Otto Bathurst as director and another went to George Steel for photography and lighting.

Victoria Wood, Lennie James, Emilia Fox, Arthur Darvill and Patsy Palmer were among the stars who attended the ceremony in London. The event was hosted by Stephen Mangan.

Broadchurch and Educating Yorkshire, two of the year's most popular programmes, also came away as winners. Broadchurch won a Bafta for original music while Educating Yorkshire was rewarded for its editing.
