13 May 2018

Winners' acceptance speech on behalf of the production team for This Country in the Scripted Comedy category

DAISY MAY COOPER: I want to start off by saying a massive thank you to Shane Allen, this show would never even have been made if he didn't have the faith in us. Chris Sussman, Steve McCrum, Damian Kavanagh.

TOM GEORGE: We have got to thank our crew.  It takes so much hard work, you wouldn't believe it, to make it look like a documentary crew has just turned up and turned on a camera, so we share this with them, for sure.

CHARLIE COOPER: Yeah, and the cast as well, Paul Chahidi, Ashley McGuire ‑ happy birthday, by the way ‑ and Trevor Cooper, our uncle.  Uncle Trev.  Our dad, Paul.  And everyone else in it as well, thank you.

SIMON MAYHEW-ARCHER: Last one, sorry, and then we'll go. Just also I want to shout out to all the other wonderful nominees.  It was incredible to be up there with you guys, and a huge thanks to our families.  My dad, Paul; their dad, Paul; my mum, Julie; his mum, Anita; my wife, Emily.  Will, Pip, Rosie ‑‑ and, Charlie, have you got a girlfriend yet you want to thank?

CC: No, let's go.

DMC: And for Deb and Emma as well.  Thank you.
