Derry Girls Have Won Another Award

Derry Girls has been named best comedy at this year’s Broadcast Awards.

Just a few days Derry Girls took home the award for Best new TV sitcom at the comedy.co.uk awards. Now they have bagged another one to add to their collection.

Judges said the Northern Irish comedy was ‘an original take on the subject, with excellent cast and characterisation’.

The citation added: ‘Viewers were drawn in by its authentic depiction of what everyday life was like for youngsters against a backdrop of army checkpoints and bomb threats. But the clincher was its cast of larger-than-life characters, ably led by breakout star Saoirse-Monica Jackson, with support from Kevin McAleer and Peter Campion.’

The accolades were handed out by trade magazine Broadcast at London’s Grosvenor House, with Harry Hill hosting.
