BAFTA TV Awards 2016 Winners: 'Strictly Come Dancing', 'Great British Bake Off' And 'EastEnders' Win Big In This Year's Ceremony

Did your favourite take home an award?

'EastEnders', 'Strictly Come Dancing' and 'Great British Bake Off' were among the big winners at this year's TV BAFTAs, which took place on Sunday night (8 May).

Graham Norton once again took on presenting duties at the awards bash, which saw some of the biggest names in telly waiting with bated breath to find out if their efforts had been recognised by the academy.

This year's bash saw plenty of first-time winners, including 'Strictly', 'Doctor Foster' star Suranne Jones and cult favourite 'First Dates', which triumphed in the Reality And Constructed Factual category.
