Olivia Colman pulled off a historic double at the BAFTA TV Awards, taking home two gongs for her performances in 'Twenty Twelve' and 'The Accused'.

The popular actress, who has gone from strength to strength since her breakthrough film role in 'Tyrannosaur' last year, including the hit series 'Broadchurch', took to the stage three times in all, as 'Twenty Twelve also scooped the award for 'Best Comedy'.

Olivia Colman was overjoyed to receive two BAFTAS at the BAFTA TV Awards

Colman was typically humble in her speeches, saying 'I'm sorry' as she accepted her second award, and noting of her win for Female Comedy Performance, 'I'm not even the funniest one in our programme."

She also used the chance of her second win, for 'Twenty Twelve' to thank somebody she forgot the first time around, the director of 'The Accused' - David Blair.

"I've just seen Matt from 'Friends'," she added. "This is a really lovely evening."

Peter Capaldi, also nominated twice on the night, was not so fortunate. He was nominated for 'The Hour' and 'The Thick of It', but was pipped to the post by Simon Russell Beale in the Best Supporting Actor category, and by Steve Coogan For Best Male Comedy Performance.

Other winners on the night included the 'Made in Chelsea' gang, Alan Carr, Ben Whishaw and Sheridan Smith, who got extra point for crying and swearing through her award for Best Leading Actress.
