CBBC smash Horrible Histories triumphed at the Children’s BAFTA Awards this weekend, winning Best Children’s Comedy.
The show which stars Ealing Live Simon Farnaby, Ben Willbond and occasionally Alice Lowe, alongside Laurence Rickard, Jim Howick, Martha Howe-Douglas and Matt Baynton was up against some stiff competition, including another TVO related show: Sorry, I’ve Got No Head. The latter was cancelled to somewhat of an outcry earlier this year, and featured the likes of James Bachman, Justin Edwards, Anna Crilly and Fergus Craig in it’s cast, whilst a spin-off show called Pixelface which featured Gareth Tunley added to its ensemble cast has proved popular in its place.
However, the runaway winner was ratings sensation Horrible Histories, which will return in the new year with a brand new set of delightful episodes to savour. As you can see from the photo above, Farnaby joined his co-stars to collect the award, and TVO would like to extend our congratulations to the team on yet another well earned trophy for their mantles!
