Davina McCall, 53, celebrated with her Long Lost Family: Born Without Trace co-stars as they won the BAFTA TV Award for Best Features. The team won the gong against the likes of Mortimer And Whitehouse: Gone Fishing, Big Zuu’s Big Eats and The Repair Shop.

Kirstie Allsopp, 49, took to Twitter to congratulate the show for their win, but admitted she was “bitter” to not be nominated.

She wrote: “Bitter as I am never to have been nominated in 20 years.(sic)

“I would have been thrilled to have been beaten by @ThisisDavina and this amazing show. Well deserved.”

Many of the star’s 423,000 followers flocked to her post to comment.

One wrote: “Never nominated? For location location location?? That seems mad.”

“Some episodes of LLL are pure gold. You and that bloke deserve an award,” a second added.

A third added: “One of my best programmes.”

Kirstie has been fronting Location, Location Location alongside Phil Spencer for over 20 years.

The duo show house hunters some properties for sale that fit their requirements.

The presenter reflected on her 20 years on the show in an interview with her co-star last year.

She told The Guardian: “My biggest mistake was wearing my own clothes.

“I had a red leather coat with a huge zip, but this meant I got recognised more than I’d like.

“When we started, it was a more innocent time.

“I don’t think I could have made the series if social media had been around then.”

On why she believes the Channel 4 show has been a success, she added: “What we’re telling is the story of people’s hopes and dreams.

“That’s why the programme has endured.”

Other winners at the BAFTAs this evening include; Aimee Lou Wood, Anthony’s Rakie Ayola and Michaela Coel for her drama I May Destroy You.

The socially-distanced event was fronted by comedian Richard Ayoade.

Guest presenters included; Adrian Dunbar, Stacey Dooley, Oti Mabuse and Vick Hope.
