Last night saw London’s O2 Arena host the annual British Comedy Awards, and as predicted Miranda Hart was the big winner. She turned her four nominations into three gongs, winning ‘Best New TV Show’, ‘Best Female Comedy Actress’ and the ‘People’s Choice Award’.
After revealing that her show, Miranda, may be switching from BBC2 to BBC1 she said that she was. “Genuinely thrilled” to pick up the awards.
Host Jonathan Ross’s close friend Russell Brand was unable to attend due to a sick friend but still used his video message to get the biggest laugh of the night.
Brand blamed Ross for their Sachsgate scandal claiming Ross was his father figure, and what was he thinking allowing them to do it?
