Brendan O’Carroll’s sketch show ‘Mrs Brown’s Boys’ continues to dominate on the awards circuit, picking up Situation Comedy at last night’s National Television Awards.

The comedian accepted his award with his family members by his side, as well as the production crew who work on the RTÉ/BBC show.

‘Mrs Brown’s Boys’ beat off competition from ‘Absolutely Fabulous’, ‘Benidorm’ and ‘The Big Bang Theory’.

Also victorious on the night was Armagh-born Colin Morgan, who won Drama Performance: Male for his role in ‘Merlin’. The actor was present to accept his award last night from ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ judge Darcey Bussell.

Morgan, who was recently cast in BBC series ‘Quirke’, which is shooting in Dublin, played boy wizard Merlin for five years. The series aired its fifth and final season on BBC in December. Irish actor Eoin Macken also starred.

ITV period drama ‘Downton Abbey’, which stars Irish actors Brendan Coyle and Allen Leech, won in the Drama category.

Irish TV presenter Dermot O’Leary presented the show last night, which saw ‘Absolutely Fabulous’ star Joanna Lumley go home with the Special Recognition award, while Stephen Fry’s ‘QI’ won the best Comedy Panel Show, beating Dara O’Briain’s ‘Mock the Week’, ‘Would I Lie To You’ and ‘Have I Got News For You’.

Dublin-born actor Emmett J Scanlan was nominated in the Serial Drama Performance category for his role in ‘Hollyoaks’. ‘Coronation Street’s Alan Halsall who play Tyrone Dobbs in the ITV series scooped that award.
