Bodyguard - Winner's Acceptance Speech, Virgin Media's Must-See Moment, Virgin Media British Academy Television Awards in 2019

12 May 2019

Winner's acceptance speech for Bodyguard - The Julia Montague assassinated in the Virgin Media's Must-See Moment category  

Simon Heath:  Hurry up.  Got dinner waiting. 

Just a big thank you to the audience for voting for this.  There's a big man missing here tonight.  Jed Mercurio sadly couldn't be with us.  He was the brilliant writer and creator of Bodyguard, and he should be holding this really, not me.  

But a huge thank you to him, to everyone here on the stage, cast and crew, everyone who couldn't be here.  Richard Madden, who sadly couldn't be here, was a brilliant leading man.  

And finally I just want to end with an apology to the brilliant Keeley Hawes.  This is the second time we've killed her, and I promise if you work with us again, we won't kill you next time.  

Thank you.
