All the winners from the TV BAFTAs as Kate Winslet and Ben Whishaw secure gongs | Ents & Arts News

It was a night of glitz and glamour, with the stars descending on the Royal Festival Hall for the biggest night in the UK television calendar.

Oscar-winning actress Kate Winslet picked up an award for best leading actress while Ben Whishaw took the gong for leading actor for his performance as the under-pressure doctor in This Is Going to Hurt.

The night was not without its surprises though, with long-running drama Casualty beating EastEnders, Emmerdale and last year’s winner Coronation Street for best soap and continuing drama.

And child actor Lenny Rush, 14, from Daisy May Cooper’s dark comedy Am I Being Unreasonable? also won the award for best male performance in a comedy programme – beating the likes of Daniel Radcliffe, Jon Pointing and Matt Berry.

Meanwhile, The Masked Singer also fought off competition from Ant And Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway and Strictly Come Dancing to win best entertainment programme.

During the night, Sir Mo Farah, who won a BAFTA award for his BBC One documentary The Real Mo Farah, dedicated his documentary to “children who are being trafficked”.

Collecting the prize at the event, the four-time Olympic champion said he hoped his story showed the “kids who have no say at all” that “they are not alone”.

He said: “The kids have no say at all, they are just kids and no child should ever go through what I did, I hope my story shows they aren’t alone, we are in it together.”

The award show also saw the musical drama Mood, which tells the story of a budding singer trying to make it in the industry, take the award for best mini-series.

Creator and writer Nicole Lecky thanked the women who entrusted her with their stories and dedicated her award to her mother who passed away when she was 19 years old.

“It was such an uphill battle in life,” she said.

“For me to be stood here, I hope it inspires others who have been through something that is insurmountable.”

Also picking up the award for best feature show was Joe Lycett Vs Beckham: Got Your Back at Xmas which saw the comedian lock horns with the former footballer last year to highlight the true cost of the Qatar World Cup.

Kate Winslet says hearing mother’s £17k energy bill struggles ‘absolutely destroyed’ her – and she had to help | UK News

Kate Winslet has said it “absolutely destroyed” her to hear about a woman who was facing a £17,000 energy bill just to keep her daughter alive, and felt she had no other option but to help.

Carolynne Hunter’s 12-year-old daughter Freya has severe complex health problems and disabilities, is non-verbal and blind and requires full-time oxygen and at-home nursing care.

Ms Hunter, 49, from Tillicoultry, Scotland, launched an appeal on GoFundMe last month to help pay for the rising costs of the equipment that keeps Freya alive, such as a machine monitoring her oxygen and heart rate.

Days into the campaign, which had a £20,000 goal, a donation of £17,000 marked “Kate Winslet and family” was paid to the fundraiser, which has been confirmed to have come from the actress.

The Titanic star, 47, has now said she felt she had to do something when she heard Ms Hunter was “going to have to put her child into care because she could not afford her electricity bills” and it “absolutely destroyed her”.

“I thought, on what planet is anyone going to let that happen? This is completely, completely wrong,” she told the BBC’s Sunday With Laura Kuenssberg.

“It was just wrong to me that this woman was going to suffer and that she should have been in any way as a mother forced to make such a heartbreaking decision because she simply didn’t have the support and couldn’t pay the bills.

“I just couldn’t let that happen.”

On her GoFundMe page, Ms Hunter disclosed she had “no way of reducing” the energy in her home due to her daughter’s needs, and faced a predicted annual fuel bill of £17,000 in January 2023 – up from just over £9,000 in October this year.

In August, Ms Hunter said she was in fear of the winter months.

“Our families are going to suffer, there’s going to be a mass crisis for the NHS and social care and children will die if their families are not able to pay for it,” she told PA news agency.

Kate Winslet has donated £17,000 to a mother who is facing soaring energy bills due to the cost of running her daughter’s life support machine.

Carolynne Hunter’s 12-year-old daughter Freya has severe complex health problems and disabilities, is non-verbal and blind and requires full-time oxygen and at-home nursing care.

Ms Hunter, 49, from Tillicoultry, Scotland, launched an appeal on GoFundMe earlier this week to help pay for the rising costs of the equipment that keeps Freya alive, such as a machine monitoring her oxygen and heart rate.

Days into the campaign, which had a £20,000 goal, a donation of £17,000 marked “Kate Winslet and family” was paid to the fundraiser, which has been confirmed to have come from the actress.

Ms Hunter, a mother of four, wrote on GoFundMe: “I have no way of reducing the usage of energy in our home.

“My older daughter and I have historically lived in fuel poverty to keep Freya safe and comfortable making sure all her medical needs are being met whilst allowing me to keep my bills as low as possible.”

She said she faced a predicted annual fuel bill of £17,000 in January 2023, up from just over £9,000 in October this year.

The GoFundMe campaign has now raised £20,353.

In August Ms Hunter told the PA news agency about her fears for the winter, saying: “Our families are going to suffer, there’s going to be a mass crisis for the NHS and social care and children will die if their families are not able to pay for it.”

Later this year Winslet is set to star in Channel 4 feature film I Am Ruth, in which she will play Ruth, the mother of a character named Freya, who will be played by Winslet’s own daughter, 22-year-old Mia Threapleton.

Winslet co-authored the film, which looks at the mental health crisis affecting young people in the UK, alongside Dominic Savage, the series creator of the I Am anthology of standalone dramas.
