Fleabag also won a fourth gong, for best directing which was picked up by Harry Bradbeer.

Speaking after the final win of the night for comedy series, Phoebe told the audience: "This is just getting ridiculous. Fleabag started as a one woman show at Edinburgh festival in 2014.

"The journey has been absolutely mental to get here. This is about season two, and it would not have happened if it was not for Andrew Scott, who came into our Fleabag as a whirlwind.
