The 2017 Bafta Television Awards, which celebrates the best of British television, was held at The Royal Festival Hall on May 14 in London. The ceremony was hosted by Sue Perkins.

Happy Valley, Planet Earth II and Damilola, Our Loved Boy were the big winners at this year's event. Adding on, Joanna Lumley accepted the Bafta Fellowship award by her Absolutely Fabulous co-star Jennifer Saunders. She said: "We as actors, we're dragged about in golden carriages... We are furnished with words, costumed, made up, we have stunt performers to make us look better. We have people who drive us, who dress us."
