Actress Jessica Hynes, star of the Simon Hynd directed comedy series There She Goes, has won the BAFTA award for Best Female Performance in a Comedy Programme at this month’s ceremony.

Co-starring David Tennant, the show paints an unflinching and honest portrait of the day to day difficulties involved with caring for a young girl with learning disabilities. Hyne’s debut feature film as writer/director, The Fight, was also released earlier this year.
