She Says: “Thank you so much for this award. I’m very flattered – I saw the shortlist, so I know I was in very good company. I’m absolutely thrilled.

“And, fingers crossed, I’ll be working with Michael Winterbottom on London Fields and then there’s… actually, no, I better stop. You’re going to get me into trouble… But thanks for the award!”
