SLOT XO After you've won a winning prize, whether it's a big profit or a small profit, or you've placed a val jackpot or a free spins prize from an online slot, it's a betting game that takes some time.

But backstage, the chat amongst the winners was about pranking celebrities, buying kitchen islands, and where to find the best Afghan food for a post-ceremony feast.

Here are eight highlights from the Bafta TV Awards.'

1. Watch out, Ant and Dec are about

The night's first prize, best entertainment programme, went to Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway - a show which has recently resumed its celebrity pranks after some time off during Covid.

The most recent series saw the pair use a bulldozer to drop a huge pile of soil on Jeremy Clarkson's car. And, the duo say, he definitely won't be the last.

2. Gogglebox stars hope they don't see anyone they've criticised

Gogglebox stars Marcus and Mica represented the show as it won best reality and constructed factual, but fellow cast member Lee was unusually seen without his co-star Jenny.

"She was supposed to be here, but she had to have a minor operation, and it came up this week so she couldn't turn it down, so she's still in hospital, but she'll be watching from her hospital bed," he explains backstage.

3. Mo Gilligan wants to improve his kitchen

The comedian spoke movingly about how Channel 4 gave him an opportunity at a time he was struggling with his mental health, as he accepted best comedy entertainment programme for The Lateish Show.

So what's his next big career aim - directing a film? Winning more Baftas?
