He also praised 2015 as a great year for British drama, saying: "It's an amazing year and a great category to be nominated in. There are so many talented people out there. The best thing about it is people are prepared to watch.

"We're so ready to be down on audiences saying they're only interested in reality TV and it's not true. There's room for everyone and people are tuning in to drama."
