Picking up Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for Netflix’s The Crown, she began: “Thank you very much. I would have put money on that not happening.

“This is amazing. What a lovely end to the most extraordinary journey with this lovely family. I loved every second of it and I can’t wait to see what happens next.

“I’m going to be very quick because I’m very teary as I wish my Dad was here to see this. I lost my dad during COVID, and he would have loved all of this,” she added.

Colman currently has a role lined up in Wonka, which will co-star Timothée Chalamet, and is also set to star in Marvel’s new series Secret Invasion alongside the likes of Emilia Clarke, Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn and Kingsley Ben-Adir.
